2015 is all about colour, whether it be bright, bold colours or pastel, subtle colours. What better way to incorporate colour into your wedding day then with confetti. Shropshire Petals share 5 cool confetti ideas to wow your guests for 2015.

Confetti pick and mix

What could be better than getting your guests involved with picking your confetti on your big day. Create a pick and mix confetti bar by selecting several colours and types of natural petal confetti and place them in jars, quirky containers or anything else you would like to display it in.

Make a sign to explain to guests what they need to do, asking them to use a scoop to pick and mix their handfuls of confetti. This way, you will have a totally unique confetti shot, each guest will choose something different and you will get a colourful wow factor confetti shot to cherish forever.

Fun factor

If you’re after some unique, fun photos to remember your day by, confetti is perfect for this. Order some extra confetti and let your bridesmaids, bridal party and guests have some fun throwing it around. Your photographer can capture stunning images of your family and friends without them posing and see how much fun they can have. This is a great entertainment feature if you have some extra time between your ceremony and reception.

Confetti explosion

Do something different with your confetti. Rather than have you guests throw it for you, some wedding cars have confetti canons where you place confetti inside and the driver sets it off to explode a confetti shower all over the newly married couple. This is great if you want an intimate confetti shot, and it makes for a great photo too.


Vintage tea party

Vintage tea party weddings are very popular for 2015. This theme gives you plenty of scope to decorate tables with pretty cupcakes, mix and match teacups and candles. Use confetti to add some colour and texture to your tables by randomly sprinkling some smaller delphinium, or wildflower petals over white table cloths in a colour to match your theme. Add a few larger rose or hydrangea petals in a similar but different shade to really make your tables stand out.


Use props to display confetti

Displaying your confetti for all your guests to see can really make something of a feature and talking point. This is where you can be creative. Use anything to suit your wedding theme to display your confetti. We love placing confetti cones into the basket on a vintage bike or in a set of scales stacked on top of some rustic suitcases. If your venue has any unusual items, use these and decorate them to make the most out of your confetti.
