Hudson Valley Weddings – 5 Fun Exit Ideas for Your Wedding

Hudson Valley Weddings – 5 Fun Exit Ideas for Your Wedding

When it comes to planning a wedding, you have plenty of different things to sort out. But one of the aspects people don’t often think about is the exit. As well as making a grand entrance as a newly wed couple, you should also leave the wedding reception in style. If you want to add a bit of wow-factor to your wedding reception exit, keep the following five fun exit ideas in mind.

1. Final Fireworks

You can make your exit happen with a bang by having a fireworks show or sparklers exit at the end. This is an especially nice idea if your wedding reception is in the evening and the sky is dark already. You can gather your guests outside and say your thanks before you light the fireworks or sparklers. 


2. Exit Toast

It is very traditional to have a toast at the start of the wedding reception, but there is no reason why you can’t also have an exit toast. As you are looking to leave the wedding venue, you can gather everyone around and toast goodbye with a fun drink. For instance, a shot of cappuccino, a drink shot or even a jello shot can be something different from a welcome toast. Give your thanks to the guests and leave the reception!


3. A Goodbye Message

You can also record a little video message that you show for the guests before you exit. This could be something you film during the planning process and which shows the guests the journey to organize your wedding. This will probably be very emotional for everyone, so make sure you have the tissues ready!

4. The Final Dance

You could also pick a specific song and make it your exit song for the night. This could be something fun and involve a fun dance routine, which would end up with you two escaping the wedding reception area.


A professional Hudson Valley wedding DJ can help you pick the right song for your exit. There are plenty of upbeat songs that can make the exit more fun. For example, you could select the song ‘Happy’ or go with one of the last song suggestions from our previous blog post.

5. Hot Air Balloon

If you want something romantic and grandiose, then you definitely need to consider a hot air balloon exit. This will look especially cute in the evening, if you take off as the sun is going down. 


You can easily find some hot air balloon operators in the Hudson Valley area that can provide a fun and spectacular exit for you. Give a call to someone and talk about the possibility of organizing the exit of a lifetime.

The above ideas work well as a fun exit for a wedding. If you are looking for more tips on how to plan your Hudson Valley wedding, then take a look at our website.
