Planning on having your guests help out with a special ceremony exit (and a killer photo op)? Set out a basket of easy-to-grab cones at the head of the aisle, or place them on every two or three seats so they're waiting for guests upon their arrival. Include a note in your program asking them to shower you in confetti as you make your way up the aisle as a married duo.

When you're thinking about what to put in your cones, take your venue into consideration. Some might charge a fee for confetti cleanup, or an outdoor venue may only allow environmentally friendly or biodegradable confetti to be tossed. So it's best to ask up front. Whatever you choose, one thing's for sure: You're going to get some beautiful action shots.
