Whatever the season, confetti is always a must. Natural petal confetti is perfect for indoor or outdoor confetti shots, decorating reception tables and for scattering down the aisle to create a romantic path for you to walk down. If you’re getting married this autumn/winter, here are some key confetti trends from Shropshire Petals to help when planning your big day.


Colour combinations are a huge trend this season; combining a variety of colours rather than single colours adds chicness to your wedding day. The top three confetti colour combinations are:

1. Shades of blue – adding different shades of a colour is great, especially when you have chosen a colour that is difficult to match throughout all of your wedding details. Shropshire Petals recommend mixing Frosted Blue, Blue Bird and Duck Egg for a pretty blue confetti mix.


2. Rose – rose gold has inspired this pretty colour to become a key trend. Shropshire Petals recommend their Candy Floss petals or Pink Lemonade to add a touch of ivory to your confetti.


3. Peach and Orange – similar to the rose trend, peach and orange is set to continue trending into 2017. Shropshire Petals recommend their Coral Reef confetti mix, which combines ivory, pale pink and orange.


Country Garden

This wedding theme seems to keep trending season after season.  Floral details are popular at the moment; from flower crowns to floral backdrops, the country garden theme seems to accommodate all of these. Add a touch of the country to your reception tables by using wheat sheaves as your centrepieces with a delicate scattering of natural petal confetti to complete the look. Why not choose a wheat sheaf as an alternative bouquet?


Individual portions

Many couples are choosing to provide their guests with their own individual portions of confetti, as they are perfect to attach to the order of service, ensuring everyone gets some to throw.  Make it fun for your guests to throw confetti with individual confetti pops, sachets or pouches.


Confetti balloons

Using balloons for additional décor is a huge trend at the moment. Filled with your choice of delphinium or wildflower petals, they look stunning placed at the entrance to your venue, as an alternative table decoration or why not use them to take some fun photographs?
