Why throw confetti? It's Tradition! Throwing confetti over the newly married couple is a tradition that's been present in British Weddings for over two centuries. Confetti symbolises the wish of a fertile marriage.
But who wants paper confetti for a wedding? We find paper confetti out-dated and a pollutant to the environment, that's why we've started a petal confetti revolution!
The call for natural petal confetti began as churches and venues preferred it to paper or synthetic confetti. Real flower petals are more romantic and eco-friendly making them acceptable to most wedding venues and churches.

How to display your wedding confetti

Request a confetti sample to help you choose what petals you'd like on our Confetti Sample page. You can choose up to 5 samples and it's only £1 which you get back when you place your order.
How much confetti do I need?
Use our Confetti Calculator to work out how much flower confetti you need for your wedding day. We say a litre is enough for about 10-12 handfuls. Just remember you don't need to provide confetti for all your guests, we find the ladies throw more than the gents, so half your guest is fine. If you've got less than 30 guests, we recommend getting everyone to throw to get a good confetti shot!
