Here 5 top confetti tips from Shropshire Petals:

Choose the right confetti – choose small petals for throwing, as they are lighter and more delicate, creating a better confetti shot.  You can add some larger petals for a mix of colour and texture.

Choose 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. Blowing Raspberry Fool Confetti £11.50 per litre (2)

Calculate how much you will need – use the Shropshire Petals confetti calculator to work out how much confetti you will need for what you want it for, i.e. how many guests have you got or if using it for table decorations, how many tables will you have?

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

Getting guests to throw confetti right – 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 a guests throwing confetti directly at you!
