Make-It Mondays (A day late oops): Getting Creative with Confetti


So I planned to put this up yesterday, but my laptop charger broke and I didn’t get to. Either way, Mondays will be a feature called Make-It Mondays where I discuss different DIY projects and ideas you can throw into your wedding.   Today the topic is confetti, you know, the fun stuff they throw as the newly married couple walks back down the aisle together? There are so many options out there for confetti that suit every couple’s tastes and wants.   For example. what I’m planning on doing for my wedding is making origami “lucky stars” for people to throw out of paper in my colours. In the end, they’ll look something like this.


I chose lucky stars because of this comic I read involving them and I loved the story behind it.

If you’re looking for something a little simpler, why not have a confetti bar where your guests can mix and match different confetti to celebrate?


I’ve come across some rather quirky and colourful ideas including little pompoms and sprinkles, which would definitely pop in your photographs.



Coloured streamers make for some really neat photographs as well.

If you really want to be adventurous and colourful (if you and your guests don’t mind a LOT of mess), you could always try using some coloured holi powder.


 By contrast, if you’d prefer little to no mess, little bottles of bubbles are probably the best way to go.


Now if you’re already bogged down with every other wedding detail that you don’t have time to worry about silly little things like confetti, don’t fret. Etsy has tons of premade confetti in just about any form and colour you could want.
