How must confetti do I need for tables and aisles?

  • For table decorations, we recommend 1 x aisle bag for 2 tables (seating 8-10 guests per table)
  • For aisles and pathways:
    • 1 x aisle bag per square meter for a moderate coverage
    • 2 x aisle bag per square meter for a heavy coverage
    • half a aisle bag per linear meter for lining the side of the aisle (light covering)
    • 1 x aisle bag per linear meter for lining the side of the aisle ( moderate covering)
  • For circles in which to stand or to display on a dance floor:
    • 3 square meter (a 2 meter straight line from the center to end) = 4 to 5 aisle bags
    • 7 square meter (a 3 meter straight line from the center to end) = 8 to 9 aisle bags

Example: moderately cover the sides of a pathway of 5 metres in length, the total pathway edges would be 10 metres because the petals would be sprinkled on both edges of the pathway, therefore 10 bags of petals would be needed.

Contact us more info about petal colour mixing.

 

Should I buy for everyone?

This depends entirely on your budget and is a personal choice.

Start with your photographer. If they plan to do a CONFETTI MOMENT with a countdown to confetti being thrown, then most of your guests would like to participate. Having a good understanding with your photographer is key to get the perfect confetti moment.  We usually advise that you supply enough for around half your guests as not everyone will throw the confetti.

Some brides are buying their Bridal party (bridesmaids, flower girls, best men, maids of honour, parents, etc) each 2 of our Confetti Wands (our set of 20) for great bridal party photos playing with our confetti during the private photos with the photographer. And then using the extra wands for the confetti moment.

Some brides are buying a mixture of Confetti Pouches, Confetti Boxes and Confetti Wands and then having some bubbles in the confetti mix too.

Ultimately, it’s up to you and hope that you find the right confetti bundle. Call us if you need some more info.

Can I order a rush order (less than 4 weeks) ?

For some reason, confetti is always left to the last minute. We are used to nervous phone calls 3 weeks to the wedding!

We have many factors that we consider so contact (call, email, facebook) us. We try to help all everyone that calls us. The closer you call us to your wedding day, the less choices you will have available.

Our 6 weeks process allows us to source the colours you want, the paper and packaging just as you ask for and if we find any supply issues that we can discuss it with you and give you alternatives.

Less than 6 weeks and we have to work with what is available.

So yes, we can do rush orders, go on, call us!

Why do some of your petals have some imperfections?

The quality of petal used for confetti is a good quality one with some natural imperfection or a crack. While every effort is made to protect the petals during shipping, this does also play a factor, both from our suppliers to us and en route to you. The petals are 100% natural and add to the beauty of the confetti bundle.

 

Can I book my confetti bundles in advance?

Yes, we offer an advance order  service so that you can tick confetti off your list and get it paid at today’s prices and it allows you to join in any current promotions.

Confetti is most times a last thought and it is hard to get something special a few days before the wedding.

Our advance order service gives you comfort that your confetti will be ready, delivered and your confetti moment will be perfect – with an added touch of something special.

Simply place your order via our online shop and when we email you to confirm everything

Your order is then processed about 4-6 weeks before your wonderful day when we will then confirm your order (colour, print design, and delivery). We typically ship between 1 to 2 weeks prior to your big day making sure the confetti is in optimal condition and ready for festivities.

How long does the confetti petals last?

Our luxury dried petals can last up to 3 months if correctly stored. Preferably order your confetti bundles about 6 weeks prior to ensure you get the freshest looking petals that will be look great on the day.

We use luxury dried petals that look as good as fresh petals but can last as long as 3 months. We do not offer a fresh petals option.
