Wedding bells … literally

Rather than showering the bride and groom with rice, petals, or confetti, there’s an article in which the guests were given silver handbells for friends and family to ring. Tied to each bell was a card with good wishes for the newlyweds. The wedding in InStyle featured 170 bells, which aside from being expensive, would surely be an auditory nightmare, but I’d certainly keep this in mind if you’re planning a small affair.

    As a strange coincidence, I read about this idea as an alternative to confetti throwing for eco-weddings.

    Not a bad one, though any babies present might cause quite a ruckus!

    I love this idea – was recently featured in the Breakfast at Tiffany’s wedding in Martha Stewart Weddings.
