One of the oldest wedding traditions, even dating back to early Roman times, is throwing rice on the newlyweds as they leave the church or celebration. This custom is said to have originated from the pagan tradition of throwing wedding rice, or grains such as wheat, on a couple to wish them a fruitful and prosperous union. The grain symbolized the fact that a small seed can grow into something much larger, thereby wishing the couple a lifetime full of good luck, abundance, and fertility.
This tradition has since evolved, and we have seen many couples forgo wedding rice for other fun materials. We love the new ideas that couples have come up with for their wedding send off. What do you think of these ideas?
