It’ll add some wow factor confetti shot with a burst of colour! Here’s their five top tips when it comes to confetti… Pick and Mix of Midnight Blue, Icing Sugar and Lady Grey £11.50 per litre

Choose the right confetti

Pick small petals for throwing like delphiniums, because they are lighter and more delicate – creating a better confetti shot. You can add some larger petals like roses for a mix of colour and texture.

Get the right colour mix

Consider where you will be having your confetti shot. If it’s against a shaded brick wall, go for light colours and if it’s out in the open, darker and bolder colours are perfect.

How much will you need?

Use the Shropshire Petals Confetti Calculator to work out how much confetti you will need, ie how many guests have you got? Or, if using it for table decorations, how many tables will you have?

Discuss with your photographer

Plan your shot with your photographer to ensure they know exactly what you want. They can then work out where the best place is for your confetti moment.

Getting guests to throw confetti

Sounds simple, but you only get one chance! Delegate a member of the bridal party to organise guests for the confetti shot by asking them to stand together and throw up high to create the perfect flutter – you don’t want your guests throwing confetti directly at you!
