When it comes to confetti, most brides have one thing top of their list – the perfect confetti photo. Then comes the careful selection of petals to get a beautiful blend of colours and include any petals with sentimental meaning. All things considered, we think confetti is too beautiful to simply throw once and forget about on your big day, so we’ve taken inspiration from Shropshire Petals to show you five ways to use confetti that you haven’t thought of yet.
Your gown, your flowers, your maids – they’re all looking perfect. Give your wedding aisle similar treatment to make that once in a lifetime moment look as special as it feels. We love the way Shropshire Petals have created a floral aisle from their confetti for an outdoor country, beach or bohemian ceremony. Don’t be afraid to do so inside too! Defining the aisle with some stunning petals is the perfect way to add that wedding magic to your ceremony room. To continue the theme, decorate your wedding car with petals too!
Keep some confetti aside for use in your reception décor. Whether you add a sprinkling to your tables, fill jam jars, top cupcakes or tie in confetti baskets to your rustic themed décor, the delicate flower petals make beautiful additions. Shropshire Petals have even used their confetti to create decorative letters which would be perfect for a dessert or card table.
You might remember when we introduced the Shropshire Petals confetti pops to you a little while ago. If you’d rather buy your confetti in pints not pops, add it to a balloon for a similar effect. While you’re popping open the Champagne, you can also pop the balloon to be showered in pretty petals, creating a second confetti moment!
Shropshire Petals don’t just do confetti, they also provide beautiful tied wheat and lavender sheaves. They make beautiful placeholders and chair tie decorations, especially if you’ve chosen a rustic or relaxed theme.
Favours and thank you gifts
Shropshire Petals offer beautiful dried flower heads alongside their confetti selection. Choose the same flowers as featured in your bridal bouquet and gift them in presentation boxes or bags to your bridesmaids as a thank you and memento to the big day they helped make so special.
