    There is something so lovely about confetti, it epitomises all the very best things about a wedding - guests, laughter, colour and just a little bit of chaos! And of course lets not forget that much sort after picture perfect " confetti shot"  that every Bride craves. Its no wonder then that this tradition which dates back to 1890's continues to be as popular today as it has ever been.

    The History bit......

    Confetti throwing originated in Italy, but in those days it was little small plaster imitation sweets that were thrown (ouch!!). Thankfully this was soon replaced by a variety of softer items including rice, paper and of course dried flower petals. The throwing of confetti over the happy couple is said to bestow prosperity and fertility to them.


    So if you have chosen to include confetti in your big day, read on to discover some important hints and tips to ensure you get that "wow" confetti moment.



    Some basics......

    Many couples ask the question "who buys the confetti"? The simple answer is you! Years ago, Wedding Guests would bring their own little boxes of paper confetti but with all the enviromental issues and the fact that most Brides want every part of their day to co ordiante, its more likely than not that your guests will not expect to come equipped. So if you want that shot, you are going to need to provide the confetti!

    Talking of all things enviromental, the vast majority of venues will only allow confetti if it is 100% biodegradable. This is due to the fact that traditional paper confetti tends to be difficult to clean away and of course can be very harmful to the enviroment. A top tip is to check with your venue about their particular rules and regulations regarding confetti before you go any further.


    Now you've checked that you can actually have confetti, the next thing to do is choose what kind of confetti you want. There are so many choices of petals but to create that fairytale delicate fall and allow your photographer to capture the magic moment, choose smaller petals. If you particularly want a larger petal then add some smaller ones to create a textured mix.

    Choose your colours carefully, consider whether you want them to match or contrast with your theme. Think about where your confetti will be thrown and consider whether the background is light or dark, you want your confetti to pop so make sure that your colour choice will stand out against your background and really make a statement.



    How do you want to display your confetti? Again there are a huge range of choices. Many couples opt for an informal Confetti Bar set up, this can be displayed in a variety of ways from crates, baskets, bowls, suitcases to name just a few and allows your guests to fill their own cones. Alternatively you can choose to provide the confetti in prepacked containers including cones, envelopes or poppers. You could even present your confetti in little individual personalised jars as wedding favours (a great way to save on costs!).

    How much confetti you will need, will depend on your choice of display. There are no hard and fast rules about how much confetti you need to provide and it really is  up to your personal choice (and budget of course!!). You need to decide whether you want to provide confetti for every guest. Generally not all guests will throw confetti and some people opt only to provide for the female guests but of course the choice is yours. If you are providing loose confetti for guest to fill their own cones with, as a guide 1litre of confetti will fill approximatly 10 cones.




    And so we turn to that all important shot, you've got the confetti, the guests are all lined up but how do you ensure that the photo is picture perfect? The first and most important thing to do is talk to your Photographer, they will be able to guide you on the best place to take the picture, this will help you decide on your colour (remember our earlier tips on choosing colours). The final thing is to make sure that your guests know how to throw the confetti to get the maximum impact. Now this might sound like a funny thing to say, as everyone knows how to throw but there really is an optimum way to achieve the best results!! Designate one of your Bridal party to organise the guests and get them to stand as close together as possible and most importantly to throw as high as they can to create the perfect flutter.


    So now you know what you need to create that most magical of moments. Here at The Final Flourish, we love all things confetti and have a fab range of confetti options. If you would like to know more, visit our website at
