    Hi Ladies !

    I am stumped over the confetti. I dont know what to get ? I quite like the idea of dried petals but what else is out there ? I have looked on the bay of E and it made me even more confused. I like the idea of cones too and not prepacked boxes as it looks more personal.

    Any recommendations for envirofriendly confetti that is still gorgeous ?

    Oooh i was lucky enought to win some real dried confetti petals in a competition earlier this year which I am super excited about. I was wondering whether to use them for scattering around tables or whether to package them some how and have them for throwing. Not sure whether to go for cones or little cellophane bags with a bow?

    usually the guests bring it with them, but ive noticed on a few weddings ive been too now that they have supplied their own for the guests..... there was a champagne bottle style one, you twisted the top off and lots of pretty multi coloured foil bits exploded out of it - the picture was awesome!

    My venue dont allow confetti. But as the room Im having my reception is on the 'rose garden' we can have white rose petals...seems a pain but I can understand why.

    But when we have been to weddings in the past we've just taken our own confetti (if it hasnt been stated not to bring confetti) x

    I personally wouldn't trust or rely my OH friends to remember to bring any and I really want a confetti shot so I would much rather supply it myself and know that I'm getting what I want and not disappointed on the day because everyone "forgot" it.

    As I always say, if you want something done, do it yourself :-).

    Every wedding I or my family have been to you take your own confetti and if it needed to be a special one it was mentioned on the invite (e.g. 'only bio-degradable confetti allowed') so it seems weird to me to supply your own xx
