Choosing your Petal Confetti – Tips and Advice - Matching with your Bridesmaids

The first in our series of Petal Confetti Tips and Advice posts - Matching with your Bridesmaids

One of the most popular questions we get asked is – ‘Can I match the confetti to my Bridesmaid's dresses…?’ and our answer is always ‘Of course you can’!

It’s a really nice idea to co-ordinate especially if you want your bridesmaids to hand out the petals to your guests. Bridesmaids carrying baskets of cones and petals that tone in with their dresses look so pretty and it will also help create a beautiful, harmonious photograph.

But of course confetti is all about fun – and multi-coloured, rainbow petals fluttering all over the Bride and Groom always creates a great photo!
