How to Create a Bespoke Confetti Bar for Your Wedding

There are many creative options when it comes to presenting confetti to your guests, and a wedding trend that has become a 2019 hit is the Insta-worthy Confetti Bar.

A Confetti Bar puts a fun twist on a traditional classic and is an excellent way of getting all your guests involved in the confetti shot. With this in mind, Shropshire Petals has recently launched a range of exclusive Confetti Bar packages.

If you are looking to make a bespoke Confetti Bar for your wedding then check out Shropshire Petals’ helpful tips.

Add Accessories

The Confetti Bar packages already come with cute add-ons, such as a chalkboard easel, tongs and wooden spoons, but you might want to add your own accessories. Bunting, framed photographs, vintage signs and balloons are decorative options that will create a great impact and capture the attention of your guests.

Get Someone Involved

We all know every bar needs a ‘barman,’ so appoint a member of your bridal party with this task. The chosen one will direct your guests to the Confetti Bar after the ceremony and assist in mixing the confetti cocktails. Involve bar related objects, such as drink stirrers and cocktail umbrellas, to make it fun; this will keep your guests entertained until the confetti moment commences.

So, Shropshire Petals has just launched a Medium Confetti Cannon. Filled with 0.3 litres of confetti, around 3-5 handfuls, they’re perfect for getting more of your guests to fire during your confetti moment.
