If you’re looking for wedding confetti to make your ceremony toss and wedding aisle really pop, it’s here! Last week we talked about wedding bubbles and everyone went nuts over this classic twist; today we’re talking about another big trend: wedding confetti! In addition to traditional rice, we’ve also found tossing alternatives you are going to love. The type of confetti trending today includes creative (biodegradable!) glitter confetti, wildflowers, fragrant lavender buds, dried rose petals, rainbow sprinkles, heart-shaped paper confetti, and birdseed. Read on to learn everything you need to know for your ceremony toss. Enjoy!
Wedding Confetti: How Is It Used?
First of all, let’s talk about when to use wedding confetti. While confetti is often used as decorations on tabletops and scattered along a wedding aisle, wedding confetti is most noteworthy for being an excellent thing to “toss” at the newlyweds as they walk down the aisle. Ceremony tossing confetti is a popular trend and couples are finding new and creative alternatives to use now than ever before.
Wedding confetti can be used for tossing at the couple as they process back down the aisle after “officially” tying the knot; forming two lines on either side of the ceremony doors or aisle way is the best way for your guests to see you, toss confetti, and for your photographer to capture the joyous moment.
On the opposite end, wedding confetti is frequently used after the wedding reception for a send-off. This is usually done outdoors. While you can use confetti at night with proper lighting, it is best to do a wedding sparkler send-off in the dark instead, as it will make for really incredible photos. However, it seems like confetti is a fantastic alternative to sparklers when venues prohibit the use of sparklers.
What Kind of Wedding Confetti Should You Buy?
the various types of wedding confetti available. Since there are so many types of wedding confetti to choose from, we are breaking it down into separate categories below and starting with biodegradable wedding confetti.
Biodegradable Wedding Confetti
If you are using wedding confetti outdoors and your venue prohibits traditional wedding confetti options (i.e. rice, glitter, faux rose petals, etc.) these biodegradable confetti alternatives are a fantastic option.
If you thought glitter was prohibited because it’s too messy and not eco-friendly, think again! This unique blend of gold glitter confetti from Flowerfetti is totally biodegradable — and sparkly!
In addition to gold glitter confetti, silver is also available.
Wildflower Wedding Confetti
The wildflower confetti blend from Flowerfetti will remind you of a fairy tale; in addition to tossing during a grand exit, wildflower confetti also looks beautiful scattered along the sides of your ceremony aisle. From comments by past brides, it seems like this particular blend smells absolutely incredible!
Wildflower wedding confetti is completely natural, biodegradable and eco-friendly.
Lavender Wedding Confetti
Ahhh, lavender, probably the most popular fragrance for eco-friendly wedding confetti! The traditional meaning of lavender is love and devotion. These natural dried lavender buds — lovingly gathered by Flowerfetti — make an exceptionally fragrant and relaxing scent for tossing as wedding confetti.
This beautiful hydrangea makes an elegant and romantic send-off, in addition to a pretty decoration along your aisle. By Flowerfetti.
Dried Rose Petal Confetti
Since many venues prohibit tossing faux wedding petals (they make a mess, some couples forget to clean them all up, they don’t naturally break down into the earth, etc.), it seems couples are looking to natural options for tossing and lining the aisle.
These natural real dried rose petals make awesome wedding confetti and will also keep your venue happy.
The yellow rose petals, shown below, look especially vibrant! When placed in paper tossing cones, these petals are easy for your flower girl to carry down the aisle and for guests to toss after the ceremony whether you’re making your grand entrance or grand exit. The wedding confetti and petal cones are by Flowerfetti.
It seems like guests are really going nuts over these unique confetti “pops”, which are filled with petals and easy to toss on the couple as they make a grand exit. These petal pops are by Flowerfetti.
Heart Shaped Biodegradable Wedding Confetti
This wedding confetti looks like paper cut-out hearts but there’s a bonus: in addition to choosing your favorite color (white, rose gold, yellow gold, and pink available), these sweetly-shaped hearts are totally biodegradable! Win-win.
I especially like this confetti in rose gold, perhaps one of the hottest color trends right now.
Sprinkle Wedding Confetti
If you’re looking for fun rainbow sprinkle tubes, they’re here! These colorful rainbow sprinkle wedding confetti tubes are by Mavora Art and Design and we’re obsessed!
In addition to the tube style, the tossing sprinkles are also available in a tear-open bag. The confetti bags even feature a cute “sprinkle me” sticker on the front.
Traditional rice — and contrary to a recent rumor, no, rice does not hurt birds or make them “explode”, thanks to news from science — gets a modern upgrade with these wedding confetti tubes by Mavora. These tubes are delivered to your doorstep pre-filled with rice, personalized, and ready for guests to toss at you as you make your grand exit.
These rice tubes even feature an easy tear-off top so it’s easy for guests to use.
