All Things Confetti

In recent years, the #confettimoment has become one of the most iconic moments of one's wedding day and it is quickly becoming one of the most requested and favourable shots for Photographers and Videographers to capture. Every single confetti moment picture we have seen is nothing less than stunning. The confetti moment captures all of the emotion and happiness of the newlyweds and the fact that their reactions' are so real and natural makes the photos all the more special.

We often get asked so many different questions about wedding confetti, so we have taken it upon ourselves to try and answer all of these in this blog. 

When is the best time to order confetti?
This is one of our most frequently asked questions. Our larkspur petals remain perfect for 12 months and you will be absolutely fine ordering this confetti months & months in advance before your wedding. Our roses and hydrangeas are a little bit different, and we recommend to send these out to you no earlier than 4 weeks before the big to avoid the colours fading and ruining. So, to answer the entire question, the perfect time to order your confetti is 4 weeks before the big day. However, we do offer a pre order service so you can pre order your confetti months or a year in advance and we will take this upon ourselves to move your order to our pre order file for 4 weeks before the big day. 

What petals are the best for throwing?
This is a very interesting question. We always advise Larkspur for throwing as the petals are smiler, lighter and there is much more in quantity. Our roses and hydrangeas are a lot bigger in size and therefore fall quicker, so we do not advice to just use roses or hydrangeas for throwing. We do advise if you would like the larger petals for confetti that you mix them with larkspur so you still get the most stunning confetti moment effect from the Larkspur with added boldness and dashes of colour from the larger petals. 

My colour scheme?
If you would like to match your confetti to your wedding theme colours, we always advise you to drop us a message and we will do our best to advise you of the best possible petal mixes that will suit your wedding theme the best. We also have a 'what's your colour theme?' link on our website www.confetti-cones.co.uk, where we've given our favourite choice of confetti petals for nearly every wedding colour scheme we can think of!

How many guests should I cater confetti for?
We always advise to cater confetti for half of your wedding guests. Not everyone will want to throw confetti, and there is no need to cater for every single person unless you would like to!

How may handfuls are in in 1 litre of confetti?
1 litre of confetti covers around 10 small handfuls. However, this is only an estimate as you should always bare in mind that your guests won't all have the same sized hands and some people may take bigger/smaller handfuls. This is why our cones are the perfect product to ensure that the confetti gets spread around evenly!

Do the cones come pre rolled?
All of our cones are made, personalised and rolled in our studio and are delivered to your door packaged perfectly!

How many litres of rose petals do I need to scatter down my aisle?
If this is a question that you need answering, we would advise you to drop us an email. Realistically, this all depends on how long your aisle is. 1 litre of rose petals will provide light scattering for 2 meters of the aisle, but remember this only covers one side of the aisle. To ensure both sides of the aisle are covered you would need 2 litres to cover 2 meters on each side!
