Confetti . . . Everything you need to know

Delicate and pretty, confetti is thrown into the air in celebration when the bride and groom leave the ceremony as a married couple. We welcome confetti here at the Moat House, as long as it is bio-degradable. 🙂

The tradition of throwing confetti is said to have originated from the middle ages in Northern Italy. It has certainly been around in the UK since Pagan times. Before today’s much used paper confetti, there were flowers, petals or grains of rice thrown at the happy couple.

Natural petals and biodegradable tissue paper remains the most popular wedding confetti, and the only type we accept here at The Moat House. As you will be throwing your confetti outside, the most popular type is natural petals. Confetti can be given to each of your guests by the ushers, or left for them to pick up right before the action shot. Alternatively your wedding coordinator will liaise with your photographer to ensure it is on hand.

Table confetti is a lovely addition to the tables, and adds a pop of colour and even a touch of personalisation. You can use anything from coloured crystals or metallic shapes. To wooden confetti with your names or even your faces engraved on.
