Hi, just wondering what other brides have done for confetti? The last wedding I went to I took my own however the bride and groom also provided some confetti as a lot of guests didn’t bring any. Is it now down to the Bride and groom to buy for their guests? I was always under the impression the guests should bring their own. Unsure what to do as I definitely want a confetti photo. Do we provide it and hope the guest don’t bring any so we’ve not wasted our money or don’t provide it and hope they bring their own to the wedding? Thanks!
Hi guests usually buy their own :)
If you are really keen on getting the confetti photo then I would buy some to allow for guests not bringing their own and then if they bring their own it's a bonus
I'm will provide our own in confetti cones for the ceremony, any left over, or any they have brought can be used at the venue afterwards 😊 xx
It depends. I would take my own but my in laws bought because they only wanted certain colours and sizes for their confetti photo. That way they could control it
My friend has a heart shaped hole punch. We are going to hole punch leaves 😍😍
I got favour boxes and did homemade confetti with tissue (matched my invites/theme) and got the ushers to hand them out at the church with the order of the day etc.
This also meant my confetti shot had all the colours in that matched my theme too worked out very well. Also cheap as I DIYd them
We supplied ours but it was because we made our own out of old books to go with our literary theme a few guests had brought some to though xx
We are not allowed confetti so having bubbles x
Buy your own, and let guests bring some. If you want that photo you’ll want lots
I’m providing ours but talk to your venue as many are looking for biodegradable or reusable. I saw on a website that couples make pom-poms as confetti, which looked pretty cool!
I find most people don't bring confetti as a lot of places don't allow it. I've got biodegradable confetti from ebay and bought little bags and made them myself did 200 bags for £30 for our wedding in August this year. Just sat I front of the telly making them up didn't take long
Guests usually buy their own but check if your wedding venue permits the use of it as some places don't.
I’m going to supply it because I want to use natural dried flower confetti as we’re getting married by the sea 😊
Dried rose petals are great I'm doing that as no damage to property or gardens and looks beautiful
At my first wedding the guests brought their own confetti.
I provided dried petals ️ like you say, I didn’t want to run the risk of not getting the shot because people didn’t bring some x
My photographer suggested us to provide it, she does hundreds of weddings and likes the confetti shots, she says it's disappointing as most don't bring it now... she was right... only one guest bought their own x but you need to ask at the venue your having, churches are a bit stricter... I got bio degradable confetti from eBay x
I provided it, but some bought their own. I used delphinium petals and put them in cones, which people could then get on the way out of church. I did this as we were having a winter wedding and were after certain colours to create a sort of snowflake falling effect x
My venue is supplying dried rose petals. For everyone.
At our wedding we didn’t supply any confetti our guests all brought their own we still had confetti pics and they looked amazing
We provided our own, in our colour scheme and it made a lovely photo
We're going to do confetti cones because it has to be real petals
Weve bought it. We had to have real petals as our photos are on a heritage sight. I suppose it matters on the venue and what you want x eBay is your friend x
We have to use real petals but I’m buying cheap the bunches of roses from Tesco every few weeks and drying them out myself

We provided our own! eBay sells it in bulk fairly cheap!
The last few wedding I’ve been to, no guests took their own.
State it on your invites, if invites have already gone out, text, post on Facebook, mention in passing etc.. lots of ways to do it x
Definitely check your venue. We're not even allowed petals or rice, so we're having bubbles! :)
Our guests supplied there own, it was just one extra thing I didn’t want to organise tbh. Most weddings I have been too people supplied there own. Xx
We provided our own, I dont think any guest bought any?
Unfortunately many venues don't allow confetti now so people don't bring any in case they get it wrong. We are providing some for the photos.
We dried flower petals & lavender to make confetti bags for guests. We just said that we were providing confetti so not to worry about bringing it. X
I want biodegradable so will be providing my own ..... petals and lavender 😊
We provided bags of natural petals for the ladies and four confetti canons that we got from eBay that we gave to the groomsmen which looked amazing on the photos!
We used dried rose petals. We dried them ourselves and provided about 6 bags just for the photos and everyone shared.
Some places don’t even allow the biodegradable confetti. My venue is a working farm with animals, and I think they don’t want to risk the animals eating the confetti. Also, with how busy they are (my wedding is on a Tuesday before the bank holiday weekend and there are weddings on the Thursday, Saturday and Monday after), it’s still not fair to have confetti flying around from days before. They only allow rose petals/flower petals that have been naturally dried and are therefore OK for animals and the environment. Far cheaper as well!
We’ve bought our own because our venue only allows biodegradable confetti xx
For those whose venues only allow biodegradable. How did you let your guests know This? Did you include on the invite. I'm worried some guests bring and use their own which is not the right kind.
Because we had a film theme but also because it was biodegradable and safe for animals to eat, we used popcorn. Spent the night before the wedding popping it and offered it to guests from two large boxes
I'm so glad you asked this question because I don't know what to do about confetti either, I never knew that guests traditionally bought their own! Thanks for your advice everyone :)
I really didn't want confetti, plus my wedding venue didn't allow it, so we had bubble's!! Made for some really nice photos! :) Xx
Our venue didn't allow confetti (it's a historical site) but we weren't allowed to blow bubbles outside so we provided that and our photographer made sure we had a shot of everyone together outside the venue all blowing bubbles whilst we stood in the centre - we haven't had the shots back yet but I'm hoping it will look really cool!!
Firstly, you need to check your venue will allow confetti.
Secondly, if you definitely want a confetti shot then I'd provide it. I think because a lot of venues don't allow it now people don't bring it.
We really wanted a particular confetti shot so provided everyone with a box.
Check your venue! Ours would only allow natural petals, no artificial dye as previously it stained the floor outside and they had to remove layers to get the stain out. Not ideal for a several hundred year old floor!
I’m hiring this Confetti cone stand, it’s so cute
We’re having Bubbles! 🙂
My venue only allowed petal confetti, but I provided little bubble tubes instead! They were cheap as I got them from Poundland. Didn’t do a formal shot but everyone had fun with them!
When we got married we checked they would allow confetti as like you I really wanted a confetti photo, luckily we were allowed it so I provided it myself.....it wasn't too expensive but then we only had 50 guests at our ceremony. When I've gone to weddings before I've never taken confetti incase we weren't allowed too, but if they provided it we knew we could xxx
Unless you want a specific type, petals, rice, the guests usually bring their own if they want to throw it. I chose not to have any at all at mine though so I couldn’t tell you weather they do now or not.
People bring own confetti but I took a couple of extra for Sarahs just in case tell your mum she needs a bigger handbag lol
Our venue doesn't allow 'fake confetti' only real biodegradable due to surrounding wildlife. We have made our own by drying out petals. I think it looks so much nicer than shop bought. We also put a small note in the invites stating confetti would ve provided. We have made cones for it to be handed out in along with a rustic crate for storage x
Put it on the invitations to either bring own or let them know it will be provided x
We are using bubbles!!
We are providing some as we have some cones that have been given to us however I always take some with me to weddings and check that it's allowed before throwing x
Our venue only allowed natural confetti flower petals which had to be thrown inside so that it could easily be swept up. It was lovely but we had to provide it ourselves.
We had the confetti thrown as we walked back down the aisle and the used it again during wedding shots inside. X
Use rice pudding its biodegradable and more fun ???
I'd have to admit, last wedding i went to i forgot to bring confetti... so if you 100% want that shot bring some, x
Confetti company on eBay is amazing.
37p for a pouch. We got 50 but needed more.
