Hi again! I’m guessing most of you will choose your wedding dress before you plan your confetti moment, but today’s guest blogger has news for you! OK so the title might be overstating things a tad… but every wedding album has “the confetti shot” – and in hindsight you’re going to see that photo a lot so it’s worth planning to get it right! With thanks to Emma for today’s guest blog. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Why confetti is as important as your wedding dress!

The excitement of looking at your wedding day photos to remember your big day will never go away. One of the most spontaneous and natural pictures will be the moment your photographer captures delicate confetti floating down on the happy newlywed couple.

Throwing confetti over a newly married couple is a tradition that’s been present in British weddings for over two centuries as it symbolises the wish of a fertile marriage. When most people think about confetti they think of small coloured paper shapes which you could buy from a variety of convenience stores.
