Going Green: Using Flower Petals and Cut-Out Leaves as an Eco-Friendly Confetti Alternative

When it comes to wedding traditions, throwing confetti as the newlyweds exit the ceremony is definitely a favourite. It adds a touch of fun and celebration to the occasion and makes for some great photos too. However, traditional confetti made from paper or plastic can be harmful to the environment and can take a long time to decompose.



Thankfully, there are alternatives to traditional confetti that are eco-friendly and can make for even more stunning photos. One of the most popular alternatives is using flower petals or cut-out leaves.

Using flower petals as confetti is not only environmentally friendly, but also adds a romantic and natural touch to the photos. You can choose the petals of your favourite flowers or those that complement your wedding colours, and have them scattered around the venue or handed out to guests to throw during the exit.


Another option is to use cut-out leaves. You can choose leaves that match your wedding theme, like palm leaves for a tropical wedding or maple leaves for a fall wedding. Add a bit of DIY to cut some wedding costs by cutting them out in different shapes and sizes and have them handed out to your guests to toss. The result will be unique and whimsical photos that you'll cherish for years to come.


In addition to being environmentally friendly, flower petals and cut-out leaves are also great for photos because they are light and easily caught by the wind, creating a magical effect. And since they are natural, they won't stain or damage your wedding attire or the venue.



If you want to take your eco-friendliness even further, consider using dried flowers or even biodegradable confetti made from leaves.


In conclusion, using environmentally friendly confetti alternatives like flower petals or cut-out leaves is not only kind to the planet but also makes for beautiful and unique photos. So, why not add a touch of nature to your wedding and have your guests toss some petals or leaves during your exit? Your photos and the environment will thank you for it!
