Wondering how you are going to present your wedding confetti? We absolutely love our new white confetti cones. They go with pretty much any wedding style and can make a beautiful display at your wedding ceremony. Fill all the cones up with your confetti petals and stand up in a wooden trug or basket. Guests will be able to help themselves to a cone at the end of the ceremony and shower you with petals.
I love throwing confetti at weddings and I think it’s one of the most exciting parts of the day. I also adore the ‘confetti shot’ and how it beautifully reflects the happiness of the newlyweds and guests. There are tons of fabulous ways of presenting your wedding confetti, so let’s take a look at some cute ideas for confetti bags!
Our ‘Throw Me’ cotton confetti bags (pictured above) are a popular choice for brides and grooms, and they look particularly fab displayed in a basket. Keep at the front of the church or ceremony room so that your guests can each pick up a bag on their way out. You can order the bags empty, or already filled with colourful confetti – or lavender grain!
Rustic Hessian Bags
Planning a country wedding? Or maybe you’re having a rustic affair? If so, hessian bags will fit in with your theme perfectly. Display in a wooden crate by your wedding venue entrance for an organic feel. Hessian confetti bags are best suited to natural confetti, such as lavender or dried rose petals. Why not add a little wooden sign with ‘throw some love’ written in calligraphy – this way your guests know exactly where to find it!
Looking for something completely original? Confetti bags don’t have to be small, you could simply have 4 or 5 large hessian bags or brown paper bags brimming with confetti, dried leaves or sprigs of lavender. I love the thought of filling bags with olive tree leaves – perfect for an Italian, Summer soiree.
Personalised confetti bags are always a wonderful option. Having your names, wedding date and a lovely message written on each bag makes for an extra special celebration. Take a look at these fun, personalised confetti bags made up of organza material.
I’ve sometimes found at weddings that it’s not clear where the confetti is and you end up missing the part where you throw it! Avoid this issue by attaching your confetti bags to the order of service, or your wedding programs. Your guests will love this idea and it’s something they probably won’t have seen before!
It’s easy to match your choice of confetti to your wedding theme too. For instance, if you’ve got a particular colour scheme why not match your choice of confetti colour to it? If you’ve opted for a floral wedding theme, then pretty dried petals are a must-have! Planning a wedding on a budget? Why not use cut shapes out of coloured paper or old newspapers? It may be time-consuming but it is the perfect option for a DIY savvy bride and groom.
Our natural confetti petals are such a popular choice, especially for summer weddings. Our confetti is perfect if your venue is a little fussy on confetti, most churches ask for natural petals that are biodegradable. Our confetti is 100% natural, they are delphinium petals that have been grown in England and will biodegrade naturally.
If you are thinking of using confetti petals at your wedding you might like some of our recent blog posts:
Available in soft pink, ivory, deep blue/purple, summer mix (ivory, pink and purple)
As delphinium petals are small they gently float to the ground when thrown in the air giving that perfect confetti moment.
Remember you don’t have to supply each guest with throwing confetti, you can limit this to just the bridal party perhaps only give petals out to ladies. Why not put your bags of petals in a gorgeous basket with a note saying ‘hand picked petals help yourself’.

Are you using our natural biodegradable confetti petals for your wedding confetti? You’ve made a great choice if you are. Our confetti petals come in 4 different colourways, ivory, blush pink, deep blue / purple and summer mix – our favourite!
Here we have answered some of your most common confetti petal questions.
Are your petals biodegradable?
Yes! Our petals are 100% natural and biodegradable. Our petals all come from delphiniums which have been grown with love and care on a family farm. The petals are hand picked and packed with no artificial colourings added.
My venue only allows natural petals. Are yours OK?
Most venues and churches are perfectly happy with biodegradable petals. Our petals will biodegrade in a couple of days so the venue will not have to sweep them up. If petals are left scattered around your venue they act exactly the same as blossom falling from trees or petals falling from flowers and will biodegrade very quickly.
When Should I Buy My Confetti?
Our petals last for up to 1 year. We suggest ordering 2 – 3 months before your wedding as they will keep so well, but don’t worry if you leave it until the last minute as we have a next day delivery option you can choose. Once you receive the petals we suggest storing them in a cool dry place.
How much should I buy?
We sell our petals in small and large organza bags. If you are using these confetti petals for guests to throw over you we suggest one small bag per person or per couple depending on how generous you are feeling. One small bags is a handful but you will find guests just take a pinch out of the bag at a time.
Our large bags are more suitable if you are pouring petals into a basket or cones. Each large bag has about 10 – 12 small handfuls inside, we suggest one handful per guest. One large bag can also fill around 10 paper cones.
I’m sprinkling the petals over a table, how much should I buy?
Our petals make a lovely table decoration, sprinkle blush pink petals over the table for a pretty summer look. One small bag will do one table, or one large bags will do 10 tables.
What do you suggest I present the petals in?
You can keep it simple and pour your petals into a basket or trug that is left at the back of the church for guests to help themselves. If you want to divide up petals fairly between your guests how about just using the organza bags they come in, and place the bags in a basket. Our cotton confetti bags are also a popular choice, we have bags that read ‘sprinkle me‘ and ‘throw me‘ which is a lovely touch. Or how about pouring your petals into cones.
Our petal confetti is oh so popular for spring and summer weddings. As we sell our confetti petals in large bags we always wonder how you will choose to present your confetti to your wedding guests.
Will you offer each guest an individual package of confetti? Perhaps presented in a lovely confetti bag or small envelope. Or maybe you will choose to pour all of your petals into a basket and ask each guest to take a small handful. We’d love to know how you are planning on presenting your petal confetti to your guests.
