I'm not gonna lie, I'm Pinterest-obsessed, both personally and for the biz. I'm constantly looking for the next best thing.
My husband loathes Pinterest. It may be because I'm always finding a new project for him...like wallpapering our dining room ceiling. Seriously, so amazing, thanks Pinterest!
Anyway, while I find a ton of really amazing wedding ideas on there, there are some pretty bad ones. I recently came across this not-so-good idea and had to share. Seriously, it has to be the WORST idea EVER. And it's sprinkles.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE sprinkles, it's one of my favorite ice cream toppings.
But this "pinner" wanted to have it thrown at her on her wedding day. And by thrown I mean like how you throw rice, rose petals, etc, etc, after the ceremony.
Ever notice the color of your sprinkles always ends up on your ice cream? Yeah, the color runs.
Especially when it's hot.
Even if it's not a hot day, think about the sprinkles, grasped in your guests hands, waiting to be thrown... they WILL get sweaty and hot just from that. This will lead to some melting. Melting = the color's going to run. Imagine them getting thrown at you and getting stuck on your dress. Then imagine you taking them off. Guess what's left? Color. In the shade of your pretty sprinkles.
Even if the color "only" runs onto people's hands, which is doubtful, what happens when they try to hug you?
You mine as well just do this now.
Bottom line. Steer clear of throwing sprinkles on your wedding day. It is NOT a good idea.
