We aren't allowed confetti at our venue. Because it's in the National Park.
And those harmless looking circles of paper are little pieces of litter.
Which are really hard to clean up.
I do love the tradition of guests throwing things into the air out over the Bride and Groom.
But I haven't seen it done at any of the weddings that I've ever been to.
I'm not sure why.. because it's such a fun and festive thing to do!

Due to confetti being so out of fashion I think we might use flower petals.
I don't really want rose petals though.
Not that I have anything against roses.
Maybe some dainty little hyacinth petals. Like these ones:

But I don't think I'd go with the paper cones.
They look like something you actually have to make
I'd probably get some of those 10c lolly bags instead
And I could put them in a snazzy tray to be passed around. Like this one:
They could be handed out to the guests, sort of like those old fashioned cigarette and popcorn sellers. But with petals.
And I can actually think of a few of friends who would do a really awesome job of circulating during the pre-ceremony mingle and passing them out to those who wanted them.
