Wedding Confetti Bags Sprinkle Me Throw Me

This week our wedding decorations of the week are our cute wedding confetti bags. Our confetti bags say ‘sprinkle me’ or ‘throw me’ and can be filled with our delphinium petals. Or you can choose to have them empty and fill them yourselves.

Leave the wedding confetti bags in a basket at the back of the ceremony for guests to pick up on their way out. Giving your guests confetti in little bags keeps it all in one place until they need it. We think it’s a better option than asking guests to scrunch up confetti in their hand for ages until the moment of the confetti throw. What do you think? These sprinkle me and throw me confetti bags are exclusive to The Wedding of my Dreams.

Read more about them or browse them in our shop.

Wedding Petal Confetti

Create that perfect confetti moment at your wedding with real petal confetti. Whether you are throwing it, scattering it or tossing it, petal confetti is a must for summer weddings. Wedding Petal Confetti Source {Wedding Petal Confetti – Nancy Ray}

To add a burst of colour to your guest tables why not scatter petals over the linen. Soft pink petal confetti below instantly adds colour to the tables and gives a lovely relaxed look.

Treat your guests to wedding petal confetti presented beautifully in paper cones for them to throw for your confetti moment as you walk out for the first time as husband and wife.

Make the cones yourself by rolling a sheet of paper into a cone and sticking it together along one edge. The paper you choose for your cones could have a personal meaning. Photocopy pages from your favourite book, poem or use sheet music from your favourite song.

If confetti cones aren’t your thing perhaps hand out confetti in hessian bags or organza bags, little details such as signs saying ‘Sprinkle Me’ can add a personal touch.

Wedding confetti petals can add definitiion to your aisle if sprinkled down the sides, or have young flower girls sprinkle it down the aisle as they walk before you. Choose the colour of petals to tie in to the overall look of your day.
