We have witnessed a fantastic array of summer weddings for 2023, and now we take a step back to admire the upcoming autumnal wedding season. Known for its warm colour schemes, rich menu options and woollen suitswe're seeing long-sleeved bridal gowns take centre stage, accompanied by rustic bouquets, cascading veils and beautiful shawls. 

With all this in mind, it could not be more fitting that we add some rich burgundy and orange tones to our Mix of the Month for September. Made up of our Burgundy Berry, Cherry Blossom, Honey B, Burnt Orange and Burgundy petals, this mix fully embraces the upcoming season.

Explore some of our favourite Autumnal wedding pins in the catalogue on our Pinterest page. Indulge yourself in wedding inspiration and take from it as you desire. Adding traditional touches of autumnal décor such as pumpkins and tealights, along with rich golden hues will help you to create a dreamy autumnal aesthetic to your wedding. Adding hints of deep pinks and lavenders will compliment burgundy and oranges beautifully as you set the scene of seasonal romance.

Top tips when throwing confetti:

  • Throw it high, because as much as you want to be showered in confetti, a face full isn't so much fun! Make sure your designated confetti distributor knows to remind your guests to throw as high as they possibly can.Talk through the placement plans with your photographer beforehand. This is SO important; after all, they're the ones who will be composing your guests and they may know some beautiful spots for the big moment if they have visited your venue before. 
  • Trust in them to capture your confetti moment perfectly.Enjoy it! The confetti throw is the mark of the start of the party, so have fun! (And don't forget to share a little kiss at the end too.)

Confetti Ideas and Must Haves

We've definitely noticed an increase in customers opting for confetti cannons as part of their big celebration, and we can totally see why! Just imagine the impact of confetti being launched into the air as the signal to commence your wedding party! Or maybe include them intermittently throughout the day, for when you enter the reception room, or allowing a cascade of biodegradable petal confetti to float over your first dance. With so many colour options to choose from, our smaller petal mixes really add the extra oomph. For even more impact, we sell them in pairs  thank us later!
