lucky rice

The wedding toss is a lovely American tradition that dates back to Ancient Rome. Throwing things at a newly wed couple is intended to symbolize good luck, fertility and abundance. It is also a wonderful way for your guests to partake in the ceremony and share in the festivities.

Fun Notes: Some individuals, churches or communities choose birdseed because of a widely believed myth that the birds eating the rice will burst.
