Are you looking for confetti cannons for weddings, particularly grand exits or fun on the dance floor? Do you want to know the difference between confetti toss bags, tubes, poppers, and cannons? We’ll tell you! But first, let’s chat… do you know what’s incredibly fun? Confetti. And it’s 100x even more fun when it is wedding confetti in a large bulk quantity, colorful, very festive, and celebratory. But do you know what’s not fun? Clean-up! :) I mean, Andrew and I bought these GIANT confetti poppers this year for New Year’s Eve, the kids loved them, we loved them, and I’m STILL finding a few confetti pieces in the strangest places! Confetti does not quit, it gets everywhere!
Before you buy confetti cannons for weddings and prepare to unleash ALL THE CONFETTI you’ve ever seen, make sure you’ve ticked the following:
a) selected biodegradable confetti (everything shown in this post is… boom!),
b) you’ve asked/begged someone/paid your sibling’s friend to pick it up afterward, and
c) your venue doesn’t prohibit wedding confetti, provided you will clean it up afterward
Check, check, and check? Good. Now you can do whatever you want with your confetti! And by the way, if you’re having a backyard wedding, you can confetti toss to your heart’s content. :)
Most wedding venues do NOT mind confetti cannons, poppers, or tossing packets, but it’s always a good idea to err on the side of caution, just in case.
As we mentioned, if you’re tossing these confetti poppers outdoors, here’s some great news: they’re environmentally-friendly. These confetti cannons, tossing packets, tubes, and poppers / confetti push pops are biodegradable and are made from rice paper, so they’re water-soluble and break down naturally. In this post, we’ll explore everything you need to know about wedding confetti: what’s the difference between wedding confetti cannons, poppers, and toss bags? Where can you buy the best confetti cannons for weddings? And what are some other options for tossing things at weddings that are also biodegradable? Let’s get started, you’ve got a grand exit to plan! :) Enjoy!
Wedding Confetti Cannons
If you’re wondering what wedding confetti poppers are and how they work, here are a few fun facts we just learned about the differences between toss bags vs. confetti poppers vs. confetti cannons for weddings. Here are the things to know before you buy your wedding confetti.
Confetti poppers are small, hand-held confetti shooters that guests can use individually. It’s sort of like this, in terms of effect:
1. Confetti Toss Bags / Tubes
Here’s another option: colorful confetti toss packets by PoppyandErie.
Pros: It is cheap, easy to pack inside bags like these or tubes like these. Lavender, like these shown, smells AMAZING. Great for small weddings.
Cons: Timing can be tough: guests have to toss confetti at just the right moment. The confetti doesn’t go very far in the air and your photos may not capture the confetti shot as well.
2. Confetti Poppers
Confetti poppers are weddings are fun: guests push on the bottom to release the confetti into the air.
Pros: Poppers — aka confetti push pops — are easy to use for guests of all ages. There is literally no set-up or prep time with toss packs, bags, or cones. Just aim in the air and push! Great for medium-sized weddings.
Cons: The confetti reaches higher in the air, due to the force of the confetti, but still not as long as cannons do.
These personalized wedding confetti poppers are made with dried petals and smell fragrant, plus they’re completely biodegrdable! By ConfettiConeCompany.
Or these “Love Is In The Air” confetti push pops by BubbleandBerry. Cute!

3. Wedding Confetti Cannons
With confetti cannons, festive paper bits are shot into the air, very high up, with tons of little bits of confetti raining down for the perfect photo. These are the best confetti cannons we found and they are by Shower & Co. Gifts. To buy wedding confetti cannons in bulk, just ask for a large quantity. Typically, you can save money when you buy bulk confetti cannon vs. a few small orders. Plus, you’ll save on shipping costs.
Pros: Photos that capture wedding confetti very well. Great for large weddings or dance floors.
Cons: More clean-up than standard toss bags or poppers.
But holy cow, check out these gorgeous wedding confetti shots you get as a result!
Here is what the wedding confetti cannons look like:
And since I was wondering… are wedding confetti cannons loud? Apparently, there’s just a POP when they’re released, but it’s no louder than a balloon pop according to reviews.
Based on these pros and cons, I’m a big fan of the confetti cannons for weddings, even though I do love all the tossing options. I really adore wedding grand exits, as you probably already guessed by now.
Which one would YOU toss at your wedding? Are you going with the wedding confetti cannons, or sticking to something simpler like lavender toss packets? Either way, you can’t go wrong. Grand exits at weddings are memorable and fun: they make for beautiful photos and guests will always remember the moment you exited the ceremony officially married!
