Each culture has different traditions and some interesting trends at weddings. Some come and go, but it seems like the confetti wedding pictures are always a favourite for everyone. The reactions you get during these moments are absolutely priceless.
Some couples opt for bubbles as confetti alternative, which is quite an effective way of having mess-free confetti wedding pictures, especially if the church or venue has rules against that. I, for one, believe it’s a great idea, mostly because it keeps both hands of the guests busy, so there’s rarely an iPhone sticking out and that is never a bad thing.
On other occasions, we’ve had guests throwing lavender or small rose petals for the confetti send-off. They do seem a bit small and quite a pain when it comes to taking them out of the carefully made bride’s hairdo or the wedding dress’ cleavage, for that matter, but fun for photos, nevertheless.
One of my personal favourites are the big confetti that you can get, which helps create really beautiful photos, as they’re visible enough and also won’t get stuck anywhere that’s not… well, allowed. If you can throw in a kiss or maybe a dog or two (not literally, of course), you’ve got yourself some memorable confetti wedding pictures.
No matter what you decide to use for your send-off, just know that confetti is always a good idea. Whether you have all of your guests participating or just your bridesmaids and groomsmen, it’s a moment that’s worth capturing.
Here’s some of my favourite confetti wedding pictures we’ve taken so far.
