Confetti inspiration at Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park

Posted on 10th November 2017

Confetti ideas to make your wedding absolutely fabulous at Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park from 3-4 February 2018.

Confetti is a must at your wedding. Having your family and friends shower you with delicate natural petal confetti after you say “I do” is a sign that the celebrations have started.  Bride: The Wedding Show exhibitor Shropshire Petals grow and produce natural petal confetti on their farm and have put together five trending confetti ideas to make your wedding absolutely fabulous.

  1. Confetti bar

A huge trend for 2018 is having a confetti bar for your guests to help themselves to confetti, ready for your magical confetti moment.  So versatile, you can set up a confetti bar inside or outside your venue and choose lots of different petals in separate colours or pre-made mixes to suit your wedding theme for guests to help themselves.

Have a selection of confetti cones for guests to scoop their individual portions and add some additional décor such as bunting, signs and accessories to finish off.  Ask your photographer to capture guests having fun at your confetti bar.

  1. Confetti pop and wands

Having fun vessels for your guests to hold and throw confetti from is a way of getting them as excited as you are for your confetti moment.  Confetti pops are fun and easy to use; simply pop off the lid and guests flick out the confetti towards you. They are filled with a handful of the confetti of your choice; the perfect way to ensure every guest gets their own individual portion of confetti.

Don’t forget the children. Shropshire Petals have recently launched their super cute Confetti Wands for children to be included in the confetti moment too. They are the ideal size for little hands and can be filled with confetti to match your wedding theme or why not choose their favourite colours?

  1. Personalisation

Having your names personalised on details to include on your wedding day is a big trend. Why not go one step further with your confetti by creating personalised confetti cones for your unique confetti mix to be displayed in?

Choose from 11 pretty designs and personalise to your heart’s content.  You can select a standard colour for your cones or customise to exactly match your colour scheme. Then enter your names and wedding date to be printed on your chosen cone – you can even customise the font colour.

  1. Confetti décor

Confetti is not just for throwing; you can even use it to decorate your reception tables and other areas around your venue.  Here are some ideas you could use for your wedding day:

  • Scatter petals on crisp white tablecloths surrounding your centrepieces for a bold colour splash.
  • Add a layer of confetti to the bottom of terrariums and place candles or flowers on top.
  • Add some colour and interest to plain or darker areas of your venue by placing flower arrangements in the corners and scattering matching confetti in front of them.
  • Create a romantic petal path for you to walk on. You can make this as dense or as light as you want and either place petals all over the floor to walk on or down the sides to line your aisle.
  • Use confetti balloons as centrepieces for your tables by placing a giant confetti balloon in the middle and surround with a few smaller ones.

  1. Fun photos

You only usually get one chance to have a confetti photograph, but it is becoming more and more popular to order extra confetti to have some fun photographs with confetti too. You could have a photograph of you as a newly married couple blowing confetti into the camera or why not make the children feel special by having some fun moments with them too.
