Confetti is a wedding staple that has been long associated with weddings. But where did this tradition come from? Confetti is the Italian term for “sweets”, so wedding guests would originally throw sugar-coated almonds to signify fertility and prosperity. Today the tradition is no longer painful and is often filled with pretty flower petals instead!

In Britain, it was traditionaly rice that was thrown at a wedding, until the craze for throwing confetti was adopted from Europe in the late 1890s. Throwing rice goes all the way back to Roman times, where again it was a symbol of fertility.

When it comes to throwing your confetti, always throw it high into the sky so it will gently cascade over the happy couple as the photographer captures the shot!
It’s always a good idea to ask your chosen wedding venue about their policy on confetti, as not everyone allows it on their premises.
