Instead of a bouquet, toss a Mario Kart shell at your friends #Reception Advice#bouquet alternatives#reception#steal-this-idea October 23 | Chris Wolfgang mswolfgang Photos by: Jenny GG Photography Photo from Amanda & Lee's knights and dragons colorful fairy tale wedding by Jenny GG Photography Amanda and Lee know what's up when it comes to nerdery. For their Washington wedding last April, they stole an idea for an alternative bouquet toss from a friend's wedding, and now we're telling you to steal it: instead of flowers, try lobbing a blue Mario Kart shell into an unmarried, all-gendered crowd! After all, as Amanda and Lee's friend put it originally: "For us nerds, there's one surefire way of telling who's in first place." This post features Offbeat Vendors!

NEXT I made my Save The Dates with Vine: check out my 6-second STD Show/Hide comments [ 9 ] That's pretty much the best thing I have ever seen. Love nerdy stuff! Side note, love the brides hair and dress. 1 agrees Reply Now I wish I would have done this at my wedding 7.5 years ago. Love it! Reply I "launched" a paper airplane instead. My mum made my bouquet, beautiful acrylic multi coloured flowers and small white foam roses. There was no way I was going to throw that or give it to anyone else Reply That is totally something I'd do. My guy likes the idea as well. Reply LOL Am I the only one loving that guy in the front who cannot EVEN handle this blue shell toss? 1 agrees Reply But… wouldn't that throw whoever catches the thing way back? 3 agree Reply They just waited for the throw. Reply I love the idea of all -gendered crowd! Reply Yes, but now where do I get a blue shell plushy?? Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
