Featured Post: An Alternative to Confetti

Good morning Cwtchers,

Today on the blog we are discussing alternatives to confetti.

With more and more venues refusing the use of confetti, we have put together a few ideas which will work as a great alternative and still look fabulous in photographs!

Featured Post ONLY

Natural Flowers

We will start with most peoples first thoughts of an alternative. A company just over the border – Shropshire petals offers a wide range of natural dried flower petals

Bubbles

Bubbles are a really popular alternative in lots of weddings I have organised.  They especially work well if you have children in your wedding party and gets them involved in the fun.  They can also be tailored to fit in with your colour theme by painting the tubes, attaching ribbon etc

An alternative that feeds our winged friends as well as looking fab in photos and can be personalised.

Wedding Wands

Becoming increasingly popular are wedding wands.  These can co-ordinated in with your colour scheme and can be silent or with little bells so all your guests can ring in your big day.

Confetti that dissolves on contact with water- Genius. Whether you wanted ‘snow’ effect cones for a winter wedding or butterflies floating on a summers day this could be a brill eco-friendly option.
