When you think about confetti, you picture the newly married couple being showered with pretty petals. At a time when originality is important when planning your wedding, why not break the mould and get your photographer to capture some fun alternative confetti shots? Confetti experts, Shropshire Petals shares with Belle Bridal readers various alternative confetti shots…
Blowing Into The Camera – Find a location at your church or venue where you can steal a few intimate moments after your ceremony for photographs of just you two. Take a handful of confetti each and blow it gently towards the camera. Fun and quirky, you can decorate the space where this shot will be taken with bunting, flowers and other details to really capture the theme of your wedding. This is guaranteed to be one of your favourite shots from your day.
Petal path – Natural petal confetti is perfect for scattering on the floor to create an aisle for you to walk down. Ask your photographer to plan some photographs of you both stood on your petal path, which will provide you with a colourful alternative confetti shot. You can even have your traditional confetti moment taken on your petal path with guests stood either side throwing confetti high above you.
Bride and Bridesmaids – Order some extra confetti to have a fun confetti photograph with your bridesmaids. Each take a handful and throw it up allowing the delicate petals to float gently down to onto you. Choosing a confetti mix to match the bridesmaids dresses looks wonderful for these photographs.
In The Car – What could be more iconic than the newly married couple being driven off after the ceremony? Make more of this moment by having guests throw confetti as you leave. This works really well with open roof cars. Just check that the driver is happy for you to do this before your wedding.
Remember Your Confetti – Your wedding day will go past in a blur so try to capture as much of the important details as you can in photographs. As the throwing of confetti is a sign to mark the celebration of you as a newly married couple, ask your photographer to take a shot of one of your bridesmaids holding a handful of your confetti. This way, you have a pretty alternative confetti photograph as well as a memory that will last a lifetime.
Flower Girl Fun – Are you having a little flower girl? Capture some unforgettable moments with her whilst having fun with petals. Get a couple of your guests to throw some confetti over you having fun. Use some of the venue’s outdoor features such as a swing or water feature to capture some special photographs with your flower girl. Why not make her feel extra special by taking some shots of her being showered with confetti on her own, this will certainly be one shot you put on your wall at home.
