5 Top Tips on how to create the best confetti photos
Believe it or not great confetti photos require a little bit of organisation and planning to get it right. Here are our 5 top tips and advice for for creating great confetti photos.
1. Choose your wedding confetti wisely
There are lots of different types of wedding confetti. Dried flowers, flower petals, paper, pom poms, popcorn, lavender or confetti alternatives like bubbles. Have a look to see what effect you’re going for and how colourful you’d like it to be. Also consider the size. Too small and you might not actually see much in the pictures. Too big that it won’t fly far enough or cover most of your face!
Try to be as eco friendly as possible, especially if outdoors. Natural confetti, buds, petals, leaves and seeds are a great option and available in an array of colours to fit your theme. On the subject of outdoors be careful with your wedding confetti that has dye, if it’s wet you could end up staining your outfit 😱

2. Where and when will you be throwing it?
Usually your confetti moment will be after your ceremony but anything goes! You don’t just have to throw once either! Here’s a few ideas for when to throw your confetti.
The moment you say I do!
Surprise your guests with confetti canons set of the moment you’re announced to be married.
Get your guests lined up and primed with confetti for your grand exit.
After your group photo
If you decide to have a picture of all your guests together. Arm them with some confetti for throwing after the big group photo. This means you don’t have to organise getting them together twice.
This one is so much fun, dancing to your favourite tune whilst confetti rains down. Confetti canons are great for this but check with your venue to ok it as the confetti gets everywhere.
3. Aim high!
If your guests aim high above your head the confetti will rain down over you and create a nice effect. Left to their own devices, wedding guests do tend to throw at the couples face which results in mouthfuls of confetti approximately 9 times out of 10.
4. Positioning your confetti throwers
If you’re outside take care with the direction of the wind. You don’t want all that confetti flying off in the wrong direction! If the wind is strong consider giving more confetti to the guests who are throwing with the wind rather than against it.
If your guests are forming an aisle for you make sure they aren’t too far away. You want them fairly close for maximum confetti coverage. Equally if your using canons make sure they aren’t too close so the confetti rains down over a larger area.
5. remember to smile!
Believe it or not having things thrown at your face isn’t an everyday experience and you may find yourself accidentally grimacing as you inhale a mouthful of confetti 😂
