3.2.1 throw...

Petal confetti may well be one of the things you can easily forget to organise when planning your wedding day. It probably seems quite an insignificant detail. However, here at Cote How we love eco-friendly petal confetti! Some of the most incredible wedding shots we have seen have been engineered by the precise throwing of petal confetti at just the right moment.

why confetti?

Whether you’re having an elopement or an all-inclusive day wedding, confetti is a wonderful way to add more diversity to your wedding photo catalogue – your guests are sure to be wowed! With a great throw and excellent quality petal confetti, you can create some fantastic photos to cherish forever. Here at Cote How we have many amazing spaces for the perfect confetti throw. Whether you want that moment to be straight after your ceremony, outside our beautiful barn, heading up the hill back to the main house or right outside our iconic front porch… the choice is yours! Wherever you decide to have your moment, we will be waiting at the end with a big smile and a glass of fizz to toast your marriage!

petal confetti is so important

We always use and encourage natural, eco-friendly petal confetti. Firstly, it looks stunning in photos! The bright natural colours pop as the light hits them. Petal confetti is usually much smaller and comes in various sizes, which won’t stain your dress should the real Lake District weather come into force. Secondly, it’s biodegradable, and our priority as green champions is to ensure that our petal confetti is not damaging to the environment or the natural habitat of some wildlife in and around our venue.

the best supplier

We recommend and use the Shropshire Petal Company. Not only do we love their petal confetti but also their ethos too. As mentioned on their website, “during the growing process our flower field provides a stunning haven for wildlife during the Summertime. We want to highlight the importance of bees and took on the exciting challenge of creating a picture of a bee with flowers on our flower field. We created it from cornflowers, which bees love!”

petal confetti is so important

Not only can you use dried flowers for your petal confetti, but what about using them for your bouquet, buttonhole, or flower crown? Why not get creative and make your own bouquet or flower crown?! YouTube offers some great tutorials on making them, and you could even support your local florist by directly purchasing dried flowers from them, another eco-friendly step towards a greener wedding. Not only will you have the most beautifully scented keepsake, but you will also be playing your part in making your wedding day more environmentally friendly and sustainable.
