Why choose Biodegradable Petal Confetti?

Petal confetti is the prettiest and best confetti around (not to blow our own trumpet!), it is also the preferred choice for most churches and wedding venues across the UK, Europe and Worldwide. It's biodegradable so no one needs to clean up after your grand celebration, plus it's not harmful to the environment either, which is ideal if your venue has animals on the grounds too.

Our delphiniums and wildflowers are the best petals for getting a shower of confetti as they are small, lightweight and fall delicately to the ground. Selecting these smaller petals will ensure your photographer has plenty of time to capture the all-important moment, and as the petals are little and dainty, they won't hide your faces too. You can add a few rose or hydrangea petals to your confetti mix too, as these larger petals can add a burst of colour, but bear in mind they will fall quicker.

Confetti Display Options

Displaying your confetti to your wedding guests can be so much fun, you can incorporate your wedding colours and theme into your confetti decor. If you've having a rustic barn wedding, showcase your confetti in wicker baskets, or if you're opting for a city wedding, personalised individual sachets have been a total hit this summer. From confetti cones to wands, sachets to baskets, you can get as creative as you feel, when it comes to your confetti shot. Take a look at our online shop and pick your favourite.

How much confetti do I need? 

The more confetti you have, the better opportunity to create some incredible shots. After many years of testing and throwing petal confetti, we find that 1 litre of petal confetti is enough for about 10-12 handfuls. So, if you've got 100 guests, 10 litres of petals will be enough for them all to throw and give you that complete shower of petal confetti.

If you're stuck, we've got a cracking Confetti Calculator that will work out exactly how much you need or simply get in touch with us.

Eco-Friendly Wedding Flowers

Dried flowers have continued to be on trend for weddings this summer.  Our dread flower sheaf is ideal as an alternative natural bridal bouquet, like all our dried flowers keeping for months and sometimes years.

Opting for dried flowers on your big day means they can be delivered ahead of time due to their long-lasting life. Plus, there's no need to water any of these and no drooping by the end of the day too - one less thing to worry about. Also, a dried flower bouquet or buttonhole can become a lasting gift for those involved in the wedding, something to cherish long after the big day.
