Your confetti shot is usually the most natural and fun photo taken on your wedding day. You can get all your wedding guests involved in your confetti moment, especially the children! Throwing confetti always brings a smile to your guests faces too! Showering a newly married couple with confetti is a custom that dates back to ancient times when people threw handfuls of grain or rice over the bride and groom. This was a symbolic ritual to demonstrate their hope that the union would be fruitful. Although this gesture of collective happiness may have lost its symbolism, it still sums up the joyful spirit of the day.
The Italian word “confetti” describes confectionery but specifically refers to ‘sweetmeats’, that is grains or nuts covered in sugar, that are thrown over the newlyweds. Later, rice became popular and is still sometimes used today but has been largely replaced by small pieces of coloured paper.
“My personal advice is to have all you guests standing and everyone involved. Buy LOTS of rose petals”.
