Why order Biodegradable Confetti?

Confetti has been used for generations to celebrate newlyweds getting hitched! These days most wedding venues only allow biodegradable petal confetti, it means that no one needs to clean up after you, you will get incredible confetti photos, it's beautiful, and it's eco-friendly too.

Here at Shropshire Petals we grow biodegradable confetti on our family run flower farm, so you know where your confetti has come from. We grow a variety of different flowers during the summer time and once they're fully in bloom, we pick them by hand, dry them onsite to make gorgeous sustainable petal confetti. Paper confetti requires heavy processing and trees take years to grow large enough for milling, in comparison our flower petal confetti requires no way near the same level of energy, only take a few months to grow and carries a very low carbon footprint.

Won't my guests bring confetti?

Back in the day guests used to bring confetti to throw over the newlyweds, but these days guests tend to forget. Or worse, they might be horrid metallic confetti that's not remotely eco-friendly. The best way to make sure you get the ultimate confetti shot for your wedding day is to provide enough confetti for your guests to throw. That said, you don't need to provide it for everyone, aiming for at least half your guests is the golden rule!

How much confetti do I need? 

We've got a cracking Confetti Calculator that will work out exactly how much you need. As a good rule of thumb, 1 litre of confetti is enough for about 10-12 handfuls, so if you have 100 guests coming to your wedding, 5 litres will cover 50-60 guests, or 10 litres will cover 100-120 handfuls. 

There is no such thing as too much confetti, the more the merrier! Having extra confetti gives your wedding photographer plenty of opportunity to get more photos too! 

When to use wedding confetti 

Confetti doesn't just have to be for throwing either, you can use petals for scattering down the aisle to create an incredible entrance. Alternatively decorate your tables with a sprinkle of confetti, it add a pop of colour and looks oh so pretty. 

When to order my wedding confetti?

As soon as you know what petals you'd like, you can order. If your wedding is less than 3 months away, we'll just send your order out to you right away, and if your wedding is over 3 months away you can choose to have your delivery delayed closer to the time.  

What colour confetti should I pick?

There's no right or wrong when it comes to confetti colours. Some couples choose to match their confetti to their wedding colour scheme, alternatively others choose something that shoes up against their colour scheme. You can order confetti samples delivered to your door to help you decide. We've got a wonderful selection of popular confetti mixes to choose from, these have been tried and tested again and again. If you want to be totally unique, create your own Pick & Mix confetti, we will mix it in the Petal Shed for you by hand and send it out ready for throwing! 

How to display your wedding confetti

There's so many incredible display options when it comes to confetti, from baskets, sachets, cones, cannons, wands and much more. Take a look at our online shop and pick your favourite.
