What are the best petals for throwing as wedding confetti?

We might be a little biased, but we think our own, homegrown Delphinium Petals and are the best petals to throw. This is because they are small, light and fabulously fluttery! But, of course, all our petals can be thrown as wedding confetti. They are all lovely, all totally biodegradable and they will all look amazing in the confetti moment.

Different types of petal have different qualities, and come in slightly different colours. So, most importantly, have fun choosing your petals and colours. There are no rights or wrongs with wedding confetti! Pick what you love. We’re here to help you create exactly what you’ve been dreaming of.

We specialise in making you a bespoke confetti moment. We can mix you up any combination of petals and colours that appeals to you. If you can’t mix together what you’d like to on our website, please just give us a call. The system is designed to be simple, so you can only mix three colours of eth same petal online. But you can blend any number of petals and colours if you want to! We are very happy to help you create something special.

Where should I start?

So, you could start with our Sample Service. You can choose your favourite petals and we’ll pop them in the post so that you can have a play around and find your own bespoke blend. Or, if you are short on time, you can head over to our Colour Chart. It’s the best way to see all your petal options in one place.

Our best advice would be to go with what appeals most to you both. That is to say, it is your once in a lifetime moment: So, create a memory that you’ll treasure forever!
