Inspired by London wedding photographer and confetti-moment-nailer Jordanna Marston
When I’m asked about wedding traditions, the one golden oldie I can’t let go of is confetti. I bloody love it: the joyful moment when you’ve said your vows, finished the nervous bit of the day and are finally surrounded by your guests – and then a rainbow of bits of loveliness is released into the sky for you. It looks amazing – it looks like it feels amazing! And you know what? I always find myself grinning back at the screen when I see a brilliant confetti photo. Right now, I have face ache from smiling at the gorgeous pics we’re decorating this blog post with!
Hey lovelies! How many of you have thought about your confetti moment? If you’ve planned it, you’re an amazing genius and we salute you. (There might still be some brilliant tips here you can use!) If you haven’t really thought about it much, or you’re assuming your guests will just bring some confetti on the day, then read on. Because confetti is the funnest wedding tradition of all. It makes for amazing photos, it involves all of your guests, makes everyone laugh and smile, guarantees a few comedy moments and can be as beautiful as it is unforgettable… if you get it right.
My inbox is a little treasure trove of delights and discoveries. I’m often lost for far too long when an email leads me to a website with something innovative, pretty and exciting – and this was the case with Rice Butterflies.
I’ve seen some gorgeous confetti in my time: the most memorable was Sarah & Anna’s wedding with brightly coloured, oversized confetti which looked amazing. Rose petals are a firm favourite… but they’ve been around for years. In fact, confetti hasn’t really changed much… until now!
