Winter 2020/2021 Covid-19 Update:
It’s pretty rare for us to update a blog post, but we felt that we should add a little prefix to this popular and helpful post, because so many more of you are planning winter weddings. And that planning is all in quite strange new circumstances. All our advice below stands strong but just a quick word about safety –
We believe that right now the joyful celebration of the confetti throw is all the more valuable! That is to say, it gives your guests the opportunity to express their love and good wishes at this time when we can’t hug and kiss the happy couple. But it is essential that we do this in a way that will keep everyone safe. Most importantly, we think it’s easy to have socially distanced confetti moment. Just stand two metres back, in a big circle or a line, and throw petals up – into the air – rather than straight at the couple. (This has long been our advice – it creates that fabulously fluttery effect!)
Precautions to take:
What is most important to consider is not passing bags or baskets of confetti petals amongst your guests if they come from different households. We suggest that you choose individual packages of confetti. It is even possible to throw the confetti directly out of the packaging without touching the petals! But crucially, confetti bags, sachets or envelopes can be left on seats with the order of service ahead of the ceremony. You should not create a hazard point where everyone gathers to get petals.
On the other hand, if your guests are all from one household group or bubble, they can share a 10 Handful Bag of Confetti Petals. And in this instance, we’d highly recommend that more is more! You only have a few guests so make sure there are lots of confetti petals to throw! Well, why not?!
