When should you order confetti?

Now! Don’t worry at all. We will ask for your wedding / event date during checkout. This is so we can make sure we are supplying you with petals that will keep in perfect condition for your special day. If we need to hold your petals for a later dispatch date, we will email and let you know.

We recommend you select the Next Day Delivery option if the wedding is less than a week away, just for your own piece of mind. This is Royal Mail’s trackable service, so there’s no need to fret that it won’t arrive in time.

Our standard First Class Post will take up to five working days to get to you.

Confetti is dried so that it lasts

Confetti petals are much tougher than you might think! Their magic is that they have been preserved, to keep their colour and natural shape. So, they still have all the beautiful qualities you want in your confetti moment: Lovely colours and light, fluttery petals that will hang prettily in the air. But, unlike fresh petals, they will not wilt or fade. They will last a surprisingly long time!

Easy to store

Our petals all store very well. We ask that you keep them in a cool, dry, place, and out of direct sunlight. It is really that simple. Therefore, you can order your confetti petals at a time to suit you. We don’t mind if you’re super organised and want to get it ticked off your list. Or, if you’ve left it to the last minute, that’ no problem. We can get your confetti straight in the post and send it Next Day Delivery!

We hope you now know when you should order your confetti! If you have any questions or queries, do get in touch, we are here to help you!
