The venue is booked, the dress has been selected (bonus points for me-made!) and the cake tasting is complete, but have you thought about how your guests will send you off to newlywed bliss? We love a festive sparkler exit but more and more engaged couples are finding that venues are putting out the fire before the sparklers are even lit. Lucky for you, the wedding experts at Ruffled have solved your wedding woes with a venue-friendly (glitter and flame-free!) DIY send off that any member of your bridal party can create in just a few easy steps– no sewing required.

No-Sew Fabric Ribbons

With just a few fat quarters of fabric, Ruffled’s handlettered design and a few easy-to-find supplies, you’ll be able to create eight one-of-a-kind ribbon wands in under an hour. During your grand exit, guests will get to share in your wedding day excitement with sentiments like “Hip, Hip, Hooray” and the classic, “Best Day Ever!” Choose one of our knit fabric options, like Modern Jersey, for a no-sew project that will impress your guests and get you named Bride of the Year from your venue.
