A confetti bar is surprisingly simple and easy to style and it’s a wonderful way of adding to your venue decor. 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.

Create A Wedding Confetti Bar For Your Guests

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. Use an old-fashioned sign, frame or chalkboard to let your guests know about your confetti bar, and stand it against the table. Fill vintage baskets with pretty petals and offer your guests cones adorned with lace detailing.

Metallic wedding colour schemes are here to stay for 2017, so why not use gold as the inspiration for your wedding confetti bar? Metallic calligraphy written on mirrors or acrylic signs will look fab. Fill clear or gold vases with sequins, feathers or even glitter! You’ll sparkle for the rest of your wedding day. You could use a vintage-inspired bar cart as a base for your confetti bar – it’ll give your big day a dash of Gatsby glamour!

There are no rules when it comes to confetti, and it seems more and more couples are opting for alternative confetti ideas.

We love the idea of displaying your confetti bar in a vintage chest of drawers, and using each draw as an compartment for different types and colours of confetti. Offer your guests scoops so that they can fill cones, jars or hessian bags with their chosen confetti. It’ll look ultra-stylish at your wedding venue, and it’ll be something your guests won’t have seen before.

Wooden crates are seriously useful when it comes to wedding decor, and they can be used as part of your confetti bar. Fill the crates with loose petals, or use them as storage for kilner and mason jars brimming with confetti. They’re a fab touch if you’re opting for a rustic or country wedding theme, and they’ll fit in with your decor perfectly.
