Biodegradable Confetti: 9 Ways To Use It at Your Wedding

There are so many different ways to use dried flower confetti and the best thing is, its 100% naturally biodegradable! You can make your own biodegradable confetti at home. There’s something quite magical about preparing your own confetti during the build-up to your special day!

Here are a few ideas how to use your biodegradable confetti…

Biodegradable Floral Invitations

Add a little bit of excitement for your guests by putting beautiful biodegradable flower petals in your invitations! However, I must say there’s no point adding a biodegradable element to them if the invitation itself is not eco-friendly! ByJo has some beautiful, eco-friendly options to choose from!

Biodegradable Confetti Cones

Biodegradable confetti cones can be made out of recycled paper or wrapped in the wedding day itinerary for your guests, two in one! To add a semimetal touch, you could wrap your biodegradable confetti in the lyrics to your first dance song so that the memory is treasured!

Throw It All Over The Newlyweds!

A tradition that has happened for centuries to bestow prosperity and fertility to the newlyweds! Sadly, the confetti ends up on the ground when everyone hurries off to enjoy the after party. Wouldn’t it be great knowing that your flower confetti will naturally biodegrade and leave no mark on the environment?

Biodegradable Glassine Bags

Please no organza! Biodegradable glassine bags are definitely the better choice, not only are they biodegradable, they can also be printed on! You could personalise them by printing a love heart, guest names or your wedding day date, making them great wedding favours. A Day To Remember Studio has a range of biodegradable confetti and prints to choose from to put on your glassine bags!

Biodegradable Confetti Poppers

Add a pop of fun to the after party! You can buy or make your own party poppers full of biodegradable confetti. If you choose to buy poppers, try to make sure that they are made with biodegradable material or that they can be re-used after your special day.
