Natural biodegradable wedding confetti petals in blue pink cream purple mix

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 by the handful to make it easy for you to calculate this. One handful will also fill one cone.

Do I need to buy enough petals for everyone attending my wedding?

This is completely up to you! You can buy enough for everyone if you wish, or just for half the number of guests as you may find couples only take one handful between them. Some guests may also bring their own confetti.

I’m sprinkling the petals over a table, how much should I buy?

Our petals make a lovely table decoration, sprinkle one handful over each round table or trestle table. Use blush pink natural confetti petals to cover tables - available from The Wedding of my Dreams @theweddingomd

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.


Display your confetti petals in paper cones for guests to have a cone each or cone between their family.


Alternatively display your confetti petals in glass jars, you could have a mix of different colours and guests could help themselves as to which colour they fancy.


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.

Throw Me 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! -

Something Different

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. -

Get Personal

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. -

Double Up

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. whimsicalwonderlandweddings
