Cute idea, but balloons don't biodegrate. When they pop the rubber falls to the ground where animals can choke on it. My elementary school used to do a big balloon release, but had to stop due to environmental concerns.

What about a dove release? (PLEASE don't use butterflies, they usually end up dieing)

You shouldn't release balloons. I don't know if this is true but I read that when the balloons pop they fall and birds think they are food. They eat the balloons and die. I just wouldn't take any chances. But then again, i've pulled over on the Southern State to help a grasshopper of my car!

They told us that too - but then changed the rules a few months before the wedding. Sometimes it depends on who you ask.

I had my heart set on throwing them. We even offered to have someone clean them up after the toss.

Good luck

oooh yeah - another thing I did was I started asking people in the rectory about it - and I got a few secretaries that said they saw petals being tossed at other weddings. That was all I had to hear. I felt really lousy to have to play "good cop bad cop" with the church - but hey - a girl only gets married once.
