Throwing uncooked rice at newlyweds sounds so romantic, right? The tradition of the rice is to “shower” the new couple with prosperity, fertility, and everyone’s fav, good fortune. Rice took the backseat recently as it was rumored that if birds ate the rice it would expand in their stomach and kill them. No worries though as that is FALSE!
Still concerned about the birds or is rice not included in your no carb diet (kidding), we say break tradition! Shower the couple with flower petals, lavender, bird seed, paper confetti, or get creative…YOLO! If you do go the “showering” route don’t forget your Wedding Day Emergency Kit. No bride wants leftovers hanging out in her updo! TRUE!
life happens. be prepared.
