Flick through wedding magazines and browse Pinterest for beautiful images of weddings and you’re sure to see plenty of confetti throwing images. Have you ever wondered how they are so pretty? The majority of the time it is because the couple have supplied their own confetti for their wedding.
Traditionally guests would bring confetti to a wedding, but now it’s more common for couples to supply it themselves. There are still debates about who should supply it, so Shropshire Petals share their reasons why they think you should supply yours.
Why is Confetti Thrown at Weddings?
The throwing of confetti at a wedding marks the celebration of a newly married couple – a sign that the party is about to start!
Going back, confetti was traditionally grain, rice or flowers. Coloured paper shapes then became popular in more recent years, which each guest would bring with them in a small box. However, since we are all more environmentally aware, natural, eco-friendly confetti choices are now the preferred type to throw.
Why Supply Your Wedding Confetti?
Most churches and wedding venues only allow the throwing of biodegradable and eco-friendly confetti in their grounds. Some don’t allow it at all unless it is off the premises.
Natural petal confetti not only disappears within a couple of days, it is also small and light, creating the perfect flutter as it falls over you.
One of the main reasons couples prefer to supply their own confetti is that they can choose the colours for their confetti moment.
