Natural Petal Confetti

 

The confetti throw is a quintessential wedding day experience. The start of the celebrations after the formalities of the ceremony. Symbolising love and fertility, a shower of confetti is good luck and a wonderful opportunity for some great photos.
 
The tradition of throwing confetti dates back to pagan times to keep away evil spirits and bestow fertility upon the marriage. It has endured as one of the quirky things you’ll only experience on your wedding day!

As Whitedove celebrants we request that only 100% natural confetti is used at the end of our ceremonies and many hotels, churches and other venues will only permit this to be thrown. With the upcoming change in the Guernsey Marriage Law expected to be in place for summer 2021 we are sure that more ceremonies will take place around our beautiful island so it is important that we encourage a responsible approach to combining this wonderful wedding tradition with the need to protect our coastline and natural spaces.
