Who doesn’t love confetti? A centuries old staple of the wedding. A beautiful, romantic and joyous moment for your guests to wish you well together by showering you in flowers… and hey.. at the same time… getting some awesome photos of it would be good too right? Well, here’s some things you probably didn’t think of.
But What Kind Of Confetti?
There’s a really easy answer to this… it’s biodegradable, it’s easy to hold, doesn’t blow out of people’s hands, and looks truly amazing in photos… real flower petals! Your wedding florist should be able to help you with some offcuts and a good handful of the petals they usually have lying around! If you can’t get real petals, then the paper/fabric petals are really good too! We like the small dried flowers, however these don’t look as good in photos unless you have a lot! And, speaking of a lot… how much?
How Much Do We Need?
Well… as much as you can get really. The more the merrier! A rough rough guideline would be a big handful per guest! Paper cones don’t tend to be the best idea as people have to get the confetti out of the cones to throw it! A big basket is perfect!
Where Do We Do Confetti?
This really depends. If you’re getting married in a church, then it’ll be wherever the church tells us, some allow us to do it in the grounds, some say we have to do it outside the gate on the pavement, and some don’t allow it at all, in which case you can do it when you arrive at the venue! Most civil venues also have a preferred place to do it, but don’t worry, if it doesn’t make for the best photo possible, we’ll tell them!
