The best confetti options for your wedding

Before you get too far with your confetti plans, check if your venue allows the use of it. Don't worry if not, we have some great alternative suggestions too so keep reading.

Opting for eco-friendly confetti is a great way to contribute to a greener environment and you can absolutely achieve that iconic confetti blizzard shot with these options so there's no reason not to be excited!

Here are some sustainable wedding confetti options you can consider:

  • Flower Petals The most popular option is to go for dried flower petals, like roses or lavender. They are natural and biodegradable and can add a lovely, fragrant touch to your celebration.

  • Leaves If you'd prefer something less colourful then opt for fresh leaves like oak or any you find growing naturally in the UK. If you're importing them from other countries, you lose that sustainable element.

  • Biodegradable Confetti This confetti is made from biodegradable material which decomposes naturally, leaving no waste behind.

  • Rice Paper Dissolvable in water and completely biodegradable.

  • Shaped Leaf Confetti Collect and dry leaves, then use a hole punch to create your own natural confetti. Leaves are biodegradable and add a rustic touch to your wedding if that's the look you're going for.

  • Herb Confetti Dried herbs like rosemary, thyme, or lavender can be a fragrant and edible confetti option.

5. Alternatives:

  • Bubbles Bubbles can create a magical atmosphere and doubles up as great fun for entertaining young ones!

Unfortunately sparklers aren't a great eco-friendly option as they’re made from non-renewable materials and are single-use items which can't be recycled.

Remember, whatever option you choose, informing your guests about the eco-friendly nature of the confetti will make them more likely to participate responsibly. Enjoy your sustainable and beautiful wedding!
