You Will Need:

Cream Wooden Trug
Summer Mix Wedding Confetti

We suggest having a designated table for your confetti bar. Fill a wooden trug with some colourful confetti. We’ve opted for a gorgeous summer mix, consisting of various pink, purple and ivory petals. Our Sprinkle Me and Throw Me cotton bags are a lovely addition for your confetti bar, and you can offer them to guests if they’d rather take a bag of confetti.

Using the luggage tags and alphabet stickers, spell out ‘CONFETTI BAR’ and attach each luggage tag to a piece of twine ribbon. You’ll need to measure the length of the wooden trug, so that you can tie the twine ribbon to each end. This will let your guests know to help themselves!

Plus, it gives you a chance to get creative and allows you to express your personality and wedding style. One of the best things about a wedding confetti bar is the fact that it can be designed to suit any theme and you can effortlessly make it unique.

If you’re dreaming of a pretty vintage or country garden wedding theme, listen up! A quaint desk or table with an antique feel is the perfect base for your confetti bar.

Snowflakes

When I think of Winter I immediately think of snowflakes, so they’re a fab choice for your Winter wedding confetti. Our white flakes will look stunning in your wedding photographs, and they create the illusion of snowflakes or snow being thrown over you. They’ll look particularly striking if you’ve created a Winter wonderland wedding theme using white, grey and icy blue as your colour scheme.

Autumn Leaves

If you’re looking for a seriously unique confetti idea that your guests won’t have seen before, consider using leaves. Autumn and Winter are all about golden leaves and they look incredible being thrown after the ceremony. Creating leaf confetti can be an easy DIY job for you and your partner. Simply source leaves and use a heart shaped hole punch to cut out shapes in the leaves. Put in cute confetti holders to hand out to your guests after the ceremony. Alternatively, consider using whole leaves to throw. This will look the most effective in your photographs.

Why not use handfuls of pretty metallic glitter? This is the perfect choice if you’re planning an ultra glam Winter celebration with lots of metallic details. Gold or silver glitter confetti will twinkle in your wedding photographs. Star shapes will make your confetti shot look magical!

Christmas Tinsel

Planning a Christmas wedding theme? Then tinsel is a wedding confetti must-have! Strands of sparkly tinsel will be a fab alternative to traditional wedding confetti, and it’ll look beautiful in your wedding photographs. Opt for tinsel garlands to decorate your wedding venue and wedding chairs, so that your theme ties in together completely.

Sparklers Instead of Wedding Confetti

You don’t just have to use confetti at your Winter wedding. If you’re having your ceremony in the late afternoon or evening, why not use sparklers instead? Offer each guest a sparkler and light them as you leave your ceremony. Your guests can create an archway and wave the sparklers over you as you walk through it. Sparklers work beautifully as wedding confetti if your ceremony takes place when it’s dark.

It’s always worth double checking whether or not your wedding venue allows confetti. If your venue doesn’t, why not ask your guests to wave personalised mini flags during your confetti moment instead?
