Your typical wedding is full of tradition, whether it’s reciting vows, breaking glass, or enjoying a father-daughter dance. Today’s couples are keen to keep the traditions alive, but mold them to fit their personalities. Take, for instance, the ceremonial first dance. Some couples have decided to involve the whole wedding party and groove to their favorite pop song. Others have turned a three-tiered wedding cake into two hundred individual cupcakes.
When you want to turn those wedding traditions into magical moments, confetti offers a perfect solution. It’s colorful, inviting, and always a blast for you and your guests. Here are three great ways you can put a confetti twist on your wedding day traditions:
Forget Fireworks or Sparklers, Shoot Confetti
Some wedding traditions like fireworks are quite expensive and other traditions like using sparklers to wish farewell are quite dangerous. In both cases, confetti offers an alternative solution that’s inexpensive and safe!
The power of confetti launchers will impress the crowd just as much as fireworks do. You can go all out with a 3” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher and shoot pound after pound of confetti 75 to 100 feet in the air! If you want a smaller, but equally powerful effect, the handheld Mega Blaster Launcher works just as well. Fill the launchers with die-cut rose petals and watch the spectacular and colorful confetti float and flutter through the air!
As for a sparkler replacement, hand-flick confetti sticks do the trick. When exiting the reception hall, have all your guests line up on two sides with 6” Wedding FETTI Flickers in hand. As you walk through the middle, get encompassed by a white cloud of fluttering confetti! What a beautiful (and safe) way to end the most amazing wedding day!
Instead of Butterflies, Use Butterfly Die-Cut Confetti
The use of live butterflies at a wedding ceremony is a symbol of good fortune. However, purchasing live butterflies can be costly and half the time they end up dead before release. As an alternative, Flutter FETTI offers die-cut tissue butterfly confetti that can provide the same symbolic effect. With a 3” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher or our Surprise Box, you can launch the confetti high above you and watch a swarm of faux butterflies fly gracefully around you!
Just like real butterflies, die-cut tissue butterfly confetti comes in a huge variety of colors! You can go with pansy purple and parade blue or stick to the classic all-white confetti – either way you’ll create a flurry of excitement amongst your guests. Don’t be surprised to see them jumping out of their seats to catch the butterflies in action!
Replace Rice Throwing with Confetti Tossing
A long-standing wedding tradition is to throw rice, birdseed, dates, or figs at the departing bride and groom. It symbolizes fertility, prosperity and a blissful domestic life. Well instead of pelting the lovely couple with hard, monotone objects, why not toss some fun and colorful confetti?
There are so many different options to choose from that will “WOW” the bride and groom, as well as the entire crowd. Using 14″ Corkscrews Confetti Sticks, toss all-white corkscrew confetti on the lucky couple for a beautiful special effect. If you want something equally beautiful, but more dramatic, sprinkle the darling duo in streamers and tissue confetti from 18″ Airless Confetti Launchers with Metallic Streamers & FETTI.
The list of great confetti product options goes on and on, but the wedding traditions and the special moments only happen once. So make them count with confetti!
