A wedding in the city

Who doesn’t love to visit the big smoke, there’s so much to see and do, so no wonder couples are choosing London as a theme for their wedding. Why stop with London, if you look on Pinterest, there are so many fabulous city themed weddings that we just had to choose ‘In the city’ as today’s blog topic.

We’re going to explore four iconic cities around the world: London, New York, Paris and Sydney to give you some inspiration when it comes to details and of course confetti!



From red double decker buses and black cab photo booths, to monopoly table plans and tube ticket place settings, London themed weddings are a great excuse to use lots of fun and colour.


The perfect colours for a London wedding have to be the patriotic red, white and blue. We love a mix of Icing Sugar, Midnight Blue, Blue Bird and Lady in Red.


New York

When you think of New York, what’s the first thing that comes into your head? We asked the SP team and we all said “yellow cabs”. Ideal for adding some colour to a NYC themed wedding, yellow cabs have been used for wedding cars, as table place settings, cake decorations and more, so of course, when it comes to your confetti, yellow has to be included.


Team yellow from the yellow cabs with the darkness of the large buildings by mixing Tuxedo with Golden Slumber for an elegant, yet bright confetti mix.



One of the most romantic cities in the world, Paris is a perfect theme for a wedding. Add some ‘Ooh la la’ to your big day with Eiffel tower details, large displays of pastel flowers, traditional French patisserie treats and chic table decorations.


Paris themed weddings shout elegance and style featuring pastel and bold dark colours. For a pretty confetti shot, a mix of Vintage Daydream and Wisteria is perfect for creating a subtle yet colourful confetti moment.



Sydney is another city that is full of romance and glamour. With a mixture of stunning buildings and green spaces such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney is the perfect theme for adding natural touches to a city wedding.


Combine the white of the Sydney Opera House with the green gardens, blue water adding a touch of sunshine with a mix of Icing Sugar, Frosted Blue, Honey’B and Envy.

Love as always SP x x
