I’m going to be completely honest and admit that confetti wasn’t high up the priority list for me when it came to purchasing bits and pieces for our wedding last September. So I am just really grateful that Shropshire Petals offered to send me some, as without it I would never have got the beautiful confetti pictures that are some of my favourites from the big day. I’m definitely a confetti convert now and believe it should be way up there on the priority list, particularly when it’s not a huge investment and is a really lovely way to involve your guests.
The venue we were marrying at, like so many these days, didn’t allow paper confetti so Shropshire Petals‘ offerings of biodegradable dried flower petals was perfect for us. I had no idea how beautifully packaged the confetti would be though until it arrived!
I opted for ‘Sunshine Kisses’, a gorgeous mix of golden yellow marigold petals and white delphinium petals with 2 Shropshire Boxes to display the confetti in. A Shropshire box is a sturdy cream box that comes with 25 floral embossed paper cones and a card insert to sit the cones in. It all looks so special and the box is beautiful enough for all those wedding keepsakes after the big day too.
After our ceremony all our guests congregated outside and we ran the confetti gauntlet whilst our wonderful photographer, Taylor Roades, snapped pictures…

If you’re after confetti for your own wedding, I’d definitely recommend checking out Shropshire Petals; they have a range of flowers and colours available as well as wheat sheaves that make lovely, rustic centrepieces.
