This was when I got to know about the significance of rice bags and our age old tradition related to them. No matter how much we have changed and how trendy we  have becomeâx80x93 there are some traditions and customs which we do not wish to miss...this is one of them. Throwing rice during weddings is the way to the send off the married couple. It is a way to wish the couple luck, happiness and fertility for their life.
Making rice bagsfor wedding is very common for this particular custom âx80x93 it is fun, involves many people and also helps to save money also.
Making rice bags is easy âx80x93
âx80 You need to purchase ribbon and some pre-cut fabric mess sheets. These are easily available at craft stores in different colors, shapes and sizes. You can buy these sheets keeping in mind the color and size you are looking forward to. Remember that the ribbon you choose needs to match this color scheme.âx80 Now, you can start decorating 2 large baskets with help of ribbons which match the color scheme of the wedding. In case there is no wedding theme, you can decorate the wedding basket as you wish.âx80 Visit your local grocery store and get some good bags of rice. The amount of rice you buy, will be dependant on the number of people invited in the wedding. You do not have to buy the most expensive rice which is available âx80x93 even the cheapest rice will be good for these bags.âx80 Use a big spoon to add and mix different herbs and rice in a very big bowl. âx80 You can cut some mesh sheets and then spoon some rice mixture just into the center part.âx80 Now, slowly gather the sides and bring all of them very close together so that you are able to close it."fid":"537323","viewmode":"wysiwyg","fields":"format":"wysiwyg","type":"media","attributes":"alt":"Ready rice bags for weddings","title":"Ready rice bags for weddings","style":"MARGIN: 2px","class":"media-element file-wysiwyg"âx80 You will have to close the bag now âx80x93 you will have to close it in a way, that the rice gets secured in a very tight pouch and you have just 2 inches of leftover mesh. Suppose, you find that you are not able to close the bag, you can easily remove some rice from the bag and try closing the bag.âx80 Use a rubber band to secure the bag well. You can finish the rice bag making purpose by using a rubber band around it. You shouldnâx80x99t be making the closure too much tight since guests will be opening it and they shouldnâx80x99t find it too much difficult to open the bag.âx80 You can display all your rice baggies now âx80x93 they are ready. You will just have to present them well âx80x93 so just place them in a decorative basket and place them where they are supposed to be.
If you feel something more can be done to decorate the bags using your creativity, you are free to do whatever you feel like you. It is completely your imagination!
