Pretty leaves make a lovely wedding-exit toss, especially when they're elegantly packaged in envelopes and placed on each seat. Choose leaves that complement your wedding aesthetic-olive leaves for an elegant outdoor celebration, or perhaps fall leaves like oak or maple for an autumnal wedding.

For an eco-friendly wedding toss, use pretty dried flowers. Estimate a half cup per guest if you're using cones or sachets, or one cup per guest if you're using a basket or bowl for guests to help themselves.

Fragrant herbs like rosemary, sage, and thyme are a wonderful eco-friendly wedding send-off idea. Many herbs have symbolic meanings, so you could choose ones that are especially apt for a wedding (for example, rosemary represents loyalty and fidelity, while mint symbolizes wisdom and virtue). Invite guests to help themselves to a tossing bar stocked with bowls of fresh herbs; there, they can scoop herbs into paper cones or little sachet pouches. Bonus: Guests can even take home any extra as a wedding favor.

Instead of regular paper confetti, fill kraft-paper treat bags with biodegradable confetti (it's water soluble and comes in a wide range of colors) and place bags on each ceremony chair. The same festive look, but none of the harmful features!
