As I’ve mentioned before, I’m part of a group called The Rising Tide Society. A photographer that I admire recently posted a blog that I loved. So, I asked her if she would be a guest on MY blog, sharing the same post here.  Please meet Nicole Conner, of Nicole Conner Photography. Here is her take on a new wedding trend- the Toss Table!

I’m starting to see a new trend that I call the  “Toss Table” emerge and this is one that I would LOVE to see stick around for quite some time. It makes the walk down the aisle as newlyweds such fun! Not only does it look fantastic for photos, but really enhances the celebratory moment for you as newlyweds!

So, wondering just what to put on a toss table? Here are my top three recommendations:

Flower Petals!  This is an oldie, but goodie. Although Rose petals are the more traditional option, I adore peonies. They smell divine. But there are so many pretty petals available now- be it freesia, hydrangea, daisies. Ask your florist for a list of in-season blooms that could be appropriate. Think about your color choice- be it white or a bold color, choose something that works with your color scheme and will either blend with your attire or be a complete contrast.

Leaves!  Yep. Leaves. But don’t think icky brown leaves that have been hanging out in the dirt. Think lush foliage. Olive leaves are fantastic. And during the fall, yellow maple leaves are swoon worthy.

Confetti!  Be it paper confetti in a variety of colors or super sparkly glitter style, this is ALWAYS such fun.  Nothing makes you feel shiny and new like confetti. It is nostalgic while being trendy. That is a hard combination to find and you really can’t beat it.

Once you’ve decided on what your guests will toss, be sure to set-up a table near your programs. If you don’t have programs, that’s quite alright! Just set-up a table near the entrance to the ceremony and leave instructions for your guests {idea- insert an awesome custom sign here }. Make sure they have a vessel of sorts to hold said toss item. Little paper or wax bags work great.

After your ceremony, wait for your guests to rain down flower, foliage or paper love! Simple, fun, and just plain awesome.”
