Here are my top tips for nailing that confetti shot:
1.Embrace the confetti
I have a load of confetti shots where couples are hiding, grimacing and generally looking quite upset at confetti being thrown at them. It is a weird old thing, and could be quite painful if you get it in the eyes! But try to look up and smile 🙂
2. Lots of confetti
Lots and lots and lots always works best, most people don’t bring any, so be sure to have a big supply if you want an awesome confetti shot.
3. Check with your venue
It’s always a good idea to check with your venue, as sometimes they stipulate that you need to use bio-degradable confetti.
4. Lots and LOTS of confetti
(I may have already mentioned this but it’s super important that your guests have lots to throw).
5. Not allowed confetti?
How about walking with smoke grenades, using bubbles, wand ribbons, or do a sparkler exit?
6. You could also release confetti cannons during the first dance too!
What types of confetti and where to buy it from.
So you have the following confetti options:
- Natural petals (some venues only allow this type of confetti)
- Paper confetti (biodegradable – this is the type I recommend if you are allowed it. )
- Rice (the traditional option – it’s not pretty, i would advise against buying this!)
- Confetti cannons, these add a great effect to your photos!
If you’re after some confetti cannons, Ginger and Ray have some awesome biodegradable ones in rainbow colours, buy them here.
