How much confetti do I need?

We have a really useful confetti calculator to take any of the guess work out of confetti. Try our confetti calculator out today, click here for the link. Alternatively, as a good rule of thumb, aim for at least half of your guests to throw, as we generally find the ladies throw more than the gent's. If you've got 100 guests coming, aim for 50 to throw as a minimum, which is 5 litres of our beautiful biodegradable petals.

What colours to choose?

There is no right or wrong when it comes to colours, you can choose a petal colours to match your colour scheme, or you could do wild and have a mixture of colours. We have lots of popular mixes to choose from (click here) or Pick & Mix your own unique combination of petals at no extra cost.

Are certain petals better for throwing?

We find the delphinium and wildflower mixes to be the best for throwing as the petals are smaller, lighter weight and gently float down, giving your photographer plenty of time to get the all important confetti photos. You can add some larger petals to a delphinium and wildflower mix, we limited the larger petals to only a quarter of the mix as we find the larger petals drop a little quicker and are great for adding a flash of colour, but smaller petals are best for creating a shower of confetti. If you are thinking of having just larger petals like roses or hydrangeas, we find these best for table decorations or scattering down the aisle as they are much bigger in size.

Why use petal confetti?

Petal confetti is sustainable, eco-friendly, biodegradable and looking stunning on your wedding photos!
