The confetti shot is often one of the standout images from a wedding and is a tradition that never seems to falter. Unfortunately though, this bright and beautiful moment only lasts a few seconds, with the confetti then blown away by the breeze as the wedding party move onto the next step of the proceedings.
Keen to see couples make much more of confetti for their big day, we’ve invited our lovely Sponsor and expert in the field, Shropshire Petals, along to the blog to share their inspiring ideas on what other elements of the celebrations that confetti can play a super-pretty part in.
Renowned for their ‘Pick & Mix’ confetti selector, Shropshire Petals enable couples to create their own unique natural petal confetti mixes for their big day. Brides Up North readers that would like to do so can save 10% on confetti orders over £50* by entering BRIDESNORTH10 at the checkout.
So here we go, Shropshire Petals’ top five ways to make a fabulous feature out of your confetti:
Having a confetti bar is a great way to show off your style, creativity and evoke a bit of fun for your guests. Select several different petals and colours of natural petal confetti to suit your wedding theme and place individual colours or mixes into containers such as jars, pots and vases. Arrange them on a table, bench or a place at your venue that is close to where you will be having your confetti moment together with some confetti cones or pouches for your guests to fill. Add some props and extra décor to complement your styling and let your guests have fun selecting confetti for your special moment.
Guests love to interact with your wedding day, so giving them something to do is a great way to get them involved. Displaying your confetti in hanging confetti cones will encourage guests to help themselves. Peg cones filled with your chosen confetti onto lines of string. You could have a line either side of a path where guests will stand for your confetti moment, which will make for a stunning photograph and easy for guests to see where they need to stand. You could also hang cones off individual chairs at your ceremony or in a pail at the end of your pews for guests to take as they leave.
