1.Opt for Large Petals

When it comes to confetti, size matters. Large petals not only create a dreamy atmosphere but also glide gracefully through the air, resembling a scene from a fairytale. Unlike smaller petals, they are less likely to get tangled in hair or clothing, ensuring a seamless confetti moment. Additionally, their array of colours and natural biodegradable qualities make them a visually stunning and eco-friendly choice.

2.Embrace Vibrancy

Choose petals in vibrant hues to add a pop of colour to your confetti shot. Bright and bold petals will stand out against the backdrop, creating a striking visual contrast that enhances the beauty of the moment. Whether you opt for rich red roses or delicate blue hydrangeas, vibrant petals will elevate your photos and evoke a sense of joy and festivity. Create your custom freeze dried rose or hydrangea petal mix to match your colour scheme with our Pick and Mix Petals. Select up to 5 different petal colours to create your unique petal combination.

3.Consider Flutter and Float

The way confetti falls can significantly impact the aesthetics of your photos. While smaller confetti may fall quickly and lose visibility, larger petals have a tendency to flutter and float delicately, creating a mesmerizing spectacle that is perfect for capturing on camera. The gentle motion of petals in the air adds a whimsical touch to your photos, making them truly enchanting.

4.Order Sufficient Petals for a Spectacular Shot

    When it comes to capturing the perfect confetti moment, abundance is key. The more petals you have, the more magical and impactful your confetti shot will be. Ensure that you order enough petals to involve all your guests in the celebration. Our petal calculator tool is designed to help you determine the right quantity of petals based on the number of guests attending your wedding.

    5. Display Your Confetti

    Enhancing your confetti presentation with an elegant touch not only elevates the overall aesthetic of your wedding ceremony but also ensures that guests are aware when the magical confetti moment is about to unfold. Here are some creative ideas to showcase your confetti.

    Confetti Cone Box: For couples planning a modern wedding, our stunning confetti cone box offers a sleek and sophisticated way to display your confetti. The box comes complete with 25 pre-rolled confetti cones and 2 litres of rose or hydrangea petals of your choice, perfectly coordinated with your colour scheme. This ensures that every guest receives an equal share of luxury petal confetti while preventing the petals from being crushed by waiting guests.

    Petal Display Box: Consider incorporating a chic petal display box into your ceremony, entrusted to a member of the bridal party such as a bridesmaid, groomsman, or maid of honour. This designated individual can walk around to each guest, offering them a handful of petals in preparation for the confetti moment. They can also provide guidance, encouraging guests to stand close together and aim high when throwing the freeze-dried petals. The higher the petals are thrown, the more gracefully they will flutter down upon the newlyweds, creating a magical effect that is sure to be captured in your photos.
