In 1996, Ann Landers wrote a column about how birds can’t digest rice, and she said people should refrain from throwing it at the bride and groom. This has actually been proven false, but the myth continues. Many wedding locations discourage it because it is hard to clean up afterwards, but the rice isn’t going to actually hurt anyone (excpet the clean up crew).
As greenlander pointed out, the idea that rice is bad for the environment, specifically birds in the environment, is a myth. I grew up hearing that birds will actually explode if they ingest the uncooked rice because the moisture in their stomachs puffs up the rice. This is obviously not true, but as with many urban legends, it is still around despite evidence to the contrary.
