Ever Wonder Why we Toss Confetti at a Wedding?

Ever wonder why we toss confetti after a wedding ceremony? Traditionally, confetti is usually small pieces of coloured paper thrown over the bride and groom by their wedding guests to bring good luck.

Before paper confetti, Victorians used flowers, petals, grain or rice to shower the happy couple and to bestow prosperity and fertility. It’s safe to say that modern weddings have returned to using the more old-fashioned confetti of organic material.

Many brides make confetti their DIY wedding project, which is why we’ve created these simple yet classic confetti bags that will fit in with any wedding. Simply print it out, cut and stick it together then stuff them with your favourite form of confetti – whether it be modern or traditional, it’s all your choice!
