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.

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. If you’re planning a rustic or destination wedding, we love the thought of using a variety of herbs as your confetti. From dried lavender to handfuls of mint – the choice is yours!

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.

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.

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
