Those of you that follow me on Instagram or read our sister blog, Simply Peachy Baby, will know that as a result of planning the little peach’s first birthday, I have had polka dots and confetti on the brain lately. So, today I thought it would be fun to share 10 different ways on how you can incorporate confetti into your wedding day. Now, is it just me or does confetti make the world better? It always makes me smile – whether when tossed in the air during the recessional or when it comes sprinkling out from invitations, whether they come in jumbo size or petit size, colourful or glittery – confetti always adds a skip and a hop to my step. So, why not inject an extra bit of happiness to your big day using confetti?
(1) Confetti Invitations
Whether you add a sprinkling of confetti or incorporate a confetti design into your wedding invitations, save the dates or thank you cards, I’m sure it’ll put a huge smile on your guests’ faces. There are lots of easy DIYs out there too which would make for sweet bridal shower or engagement party invitations too!

(2) Confetti Wedding Programs
How about killing two birds with one stone and include confetti packs in your ceremony programs for guests to toss during the recessional? I love things that have dual purpose!
(3) Confetti Table Runner
I’m loving the idea of a confetti table runner for dessert tables, reception or cocktail tables. You can easily DIY them using polka dot decals and stickers or even using simple paints and stamp them on using potatoes! The colour options are endless which is really great when it comes to events. You can use plain gold for a luxe look or vibrant colour combinations for a fun and upbeat feel.

(4) Confetti Poppers
We love the confetti toss at weddings and love the idea of using poppers instead of the traditional grab and toss! It’s kind of fun and creates an awesome atmosphere with guests. You can buy them from here or if you have a bit of free time on your hands, even DIY them.

(5) Confetti Throwers
Similar to the confetti poppers above, a cute alternative are these confetti throwers, which I’ve been told can go quite far when released!

(6) Confetti Photo Booth Backdrops
Now you all know how much I love backdrops and photo booths. So there’s nothing I want to do more than combine my love for confetti with a backdrop to create a floating jumbo confetti backdrop that would be perfect for photo booths! And if you love this idea, be sure to check out more of my favourite backdrop ideas here.

(7) Confetti Inspired Desserts and Dessert Tables
Whether it’s on your wedding cake, individual cookies or as a part of your dessert table design as a whole, the confetti look can be achieved easily using sprinkles or just good old paper confetti sprinkled on your tables or by way of circular shaped desserts like colourful macarons or cake pops!

(8) Confetti Chair Decor
I love it when wedding chairs are decorated. Instead of the usual floral garlands or bride and groom signs, you can also use dotted garlands for a super cute look.
(9) Confetti Bar
I think the concept of a confetti bar is pretty cute, not to mention super easy to set up. All you need are some jars and confetti that matches your colour scheme and voila! Your guests will have a ball with this little station.

(10) Recessional Confetti Toss
Now who can forget the traditional confetti toss? In my books, that’s kind of a must at weddings. Serve them up in cones or little packages. Either way it’s a pretty little addition for guests to have fun with!
So… confetti anyone?
