The confetti photos are one of my favourite photographs to take on a wedding day because they are full of so much natural emotion and are such great fun.
I’m genuinely starting to think that confetti should be made edible because the number of times I’ve seen some fly into Bride and Grooms mouths. Think of it as a pre-wedding breakfast snack?!
When it comes to confetti it is really important that you check with your venue/church what rules they have when it comes to if/where it can be thrown. It is also important to note that most places only allow bio-degradable confetti so they aren’t still finding tiny pieces in years to come.
If where you are getting married doesn’t allow confetti, bubbles are a brilliant alternative as they leave no mess and looks fun in photos, that is if the wind doesn’t blow them the wrong way!
How to make your own confetti
If you have some time between now and your wedding I have a little trick could save you some pennies… When you have flowers in the house before they turn and you throw them out, pick the petals off and leave them on the windowsill to dry out and once they are dry you have homemade confetti. This works particularly well with roses, plus they smell divine.
Remember once you’ve dried out the petals to keep them in a dry place or they may lose colour.
