Your wedding day is filled with unforgettable moments, and one of the most joyful and photogenic is the confetti moment. It’s that time when you’re showered with love and well-wishes in the form of confetti. But to ensure those confetti photos are as stunning as your love story, you’ll want to follow these six pro tips. From choosing the perfect confetti to orchestrating the ideal confetti moment, we’ve got you covered.
Tip 1: Consult Your Venue
Let’s kickstart your confetti plans with a friendly chat with your venue coordinator. Discuss your confetti ideas, understand the venue’s rules, and make sure you’re all set for those fabulous confetti photographs. Plus, it’s a great time to think about eco-friendly, biodegradable confetti for a sustainable touch. Ready to dive into the best ways to get stunning confetti photos?
Tip 2: The Art of Confetti Selection
When it comes to confetti photographs, I suggest opting for smaller to medium-sized paper confetti or delicate dried flower petals for an eco-friendly and elegant touch. Now, in the spirit of a photographer who loves a good confetti moment, remember, more is better!
Sometimes, when you use too little confetti, its impact can get lost in the bright, well-lit ambiance of your day. So, aim for abundance, and let the confetti fly!
Tip 3: Tunnel or Circle? Your Call!
When it comes to how you throw you confetti, their are a number of possibilities. You could create a confetti tunnel or a confetti circle, with both choices creating intimate moments.
Based on my experience, I’ve seen that couples with smaller, more intimate weddings often opt for the confetti circle. Whilst, for weddings with larger guest counts, the long line up of a confetti tunnel becomes the better choice (and a fun task for your photographer to navigate backwards without walking into anyone). Just a small tip – be mindful not to inhale any confetti as you make your way through; it has happened before!
Tip 4: Confetti Duty
Assign a group of your trusty groomsmen and bridesmaids to take charge of this important task. Having your team handing out confetti either side of the tunnel or circle can help speed thing sup and get everyone prepped.
Guests can grab one or two handfuls from a basket full of confetti, or they can each have their own personal pouch to open. I’ve seen that although pouches are a nice touch, many guests try and throw them from the pouch, which sometimes ends with it just falling straight to the floor. Handfuls mean that they can go full throttle with the throw and create that effect you’re going for with your confetti photographs.
Tip 5: Get Creative with Alternatives
Why stick to tradition when you can infuse your confetti photographs with a dash of creativity? Consider unique alternatives such as sparkling sparklers or enchanting smoke bombs to add a touch of magic to your photos. These imaginative choices will bring a sense of novelty to your wedding album, perfectly aligning with your wedding’s individuality.
These six tips will transform your confetti moment into a work of art, resulting in stunning and authentic photos. It’s all about combining professionalism and a sense of fun to bring your confetti dreams to life. If you have any questions or creative ideas to share, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
