Celebrating Love with a Burst of Colours!

Jun 26, 2023

Are you ready to add a dash of whimsy and an explosion of color to your wedding day? Well, hold onto your hats (and veils!) because today, we’re diving into the dazzling world of wedding confetti! It’s time to let love rain down in a flurry of confetti-filled delight.

When it comes to choosing the perfect confetti for your big day, there are a few options to consider. Let’s start with the classic choice: paper confetti (make sure it is biodegradable). Not only is it available in a wide array of vibrant colours, but it’s also a fantastic option for capturing stunning photos. But which type of paper works best? Look no further than Proper Confetti, their paper confetti comes in a variety of shades, ensuring you find the perfect match to complement your wedding theme. And trust me, Proper Confetti knows how to bring the party!

Now, let’s talk about dried petals. These delicate beauties create a subtle and graceful confetti shower, but their impact is fleeting. They fall quickly, like tiny fragments of a romantic fairytale, adding a touch of magic to your special day. So, if you’re looking for a confetti option that won’t overshadow your grand entrance, dried petals are the way to go.

For the eco-conscious couples out there, real petals are a fantastic choice. They are large, fall quickly, and boast a natural charm that’s hard to resist. Not only do they create a breathtaking visual, but they’re also a sustainable option, making Mother Nature smile a little brighter. With real petals, you can have your confetti and save the environment too!

When it comes to choosing the right colours for your confetti, the sky’s the limit! Literally. White confetti provides a lovely contrast against lush green backgrounds, but it might get lost in a gloomy grey sky. If you want your confetti to pop like a burst of joy, consider going for a rainbow of colours. Vibrant and vivacious, it’s impossible not to feel the magic when a kaleidoscope of hues descends upon you. And let’s not forget pastels! They add a soft, dreamy touch that can transport you to a world of fairy tales and everlasting love.

Remember, though, there’s no such thing as too much confetti… well, almost. While an abundant confetti shower is undeniably delightful, you don’t want your guests swimming in a sea of colourful chaos. The key is to strike a balance. Enough to create a vibrant ambiance, but not so much that it hinders movement or obstructs the newlyweds’ smiles. A tasteful confetti display will make your heart soar without overwhelming the festivities.

So, whether you’re a fan of paper confetti that makes every photo pop, the ephemeral grace of dried petals, or the eco-friendly charm of real petals, there’s a confetti option that suits your wedding style. Always check with your wedding venue before purchasing any confetti, they often have different requirements.
