11 Ways to Incorporate Confetti Into Your Wedding

There is no celebration quite like a wedding, and nothing says celebration quite like confetti! For a wedding photo you’re sure to remember, a shower of confetti makes for a beautiful shot. Nowadays, there are even biodegradable options if you are hosting your nuptials outdoors, so there is no need to sacrifice your environmental consciousness in order to have a stunning wedding moment.

While we love the traditional confetti toss during the recessional, there are plenty of other ways to work this fun aspect into your big day. Confetti falling all around you and your beloved during your first kiss is like a scene straight out of a movie. For a modern wedding, your flower girl could toss confetti instead of petals. Whether it's introduced while leaving your ceremony or reception space, confetti leads to some fabulously festive exits. Consider getting the party started with a confetti explosion during your first dance, or add a jolt of energy with surprise confetti while everyone is getting their groove on.
