How to have a royal wedding inspired confetti moment

Are you watching the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? Shropshire Petals are sharing their ideas on how you can have a royal wedding inspired confetti moment on your wedding day.

A traditional moment at any wedding is the confetti throw. Throwing confetti over newly married couples marks the celebration of their marriage. Here are a few confetti mixes we have created inspired by some of the choices Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made about their big day.

Crisp and elegant, just like Meghan’s engagement ring. Add some glamour with a simple mix like this by displaying it in some metallic confetti cones for a touch of classic colour.

Who doesn’t love a bit of cake! Inspired by their buttercream covered lemon and elderflower cake, this beautiful mix combines ivory, yellow and green using Icing Sugar delphiniums, Golden Slumber rose petals and Envy hydrangeas. Perfect for a spring/summer wedding to encourage a bit of sunshine.

For a more traditional patriotic mix, Shropshire Petals have created a British inspired confetti mix as their May Mix of the Month to celebrate the royal wedding. This is a bold and bright mix of red, white and blue, which includes Burgundy Berry and Blue Bird cornflowers, Icing Sugar delphiniums and Lady in Red rose petals.

Now you have some confetti mix inspiration, you can decide on how you are going to display your confetti to your guests.

Cute Flower Girl Baskets would be the obvious choice as they have been seen at past royal weddings. Perfect for little ones to hold, as they are light and easy to carry. Flower Girl baskets come complete with 1 litre of confetti, which is plenty for 20 children’s handfuls or 10 adult handfuls.

You can pick & mix your own confetti or select a recommended mix. If you’re choosing two Shropshire Boxes, why not select one with Strawberry Red cones and one with Navy cones to mix them between the two boxes as the colours complement the May Mix of the Month perfectly.

If you would like a more personalised confetti moment, Personalised Confetti Pops are fun and different, just like these Shropshire Petals created for Harry and Meghan. Choose a theme, select a colour for the background from pre-set colours or a custom colour, and add your names and wedding date to create your personalised Confetti Pops.

We hope you have a great royal wedding inspired confetti moment!
