Shropshire Petals have grown dried flowers on the family farm for over 30 years now, but in 2005 they received their first order for dried petals, to use as wedding confetti and so Shropshire Petals was born. The team now grow lots of different varieties of flowers which are handpicked, dried and hand packed to make sure the petals are perfect for wedding planning couples. During the summer of 2018, the team and family behind Shropshire Petals harvested 850 million petals by hand!
We offer lots of display options for your confetti to match your perfect wedding, from bags, boxes, cones, pops, wands, the list goes on. You can personalise some of the packaging too, from personalised cones to personalised pops. We also offer loose confetti if you want to get creative and showcase your confetti in a very personal way. All our petals are natural, biodegradable, eco-friendly and high quality. Adults and kids will love them.
To avoid staining any wood floors, Bijou Wedding Venues have confirmed that the following colours of Shropshire Petals confetti are permitted:
• Enchanted Woods
• Pink Lemonade
• Icing Sugar
• Sunshine Kisses
We recommend providing enough confetti for at least half your guests as we find the ladies throw more than the gents, but the more the merrier. Visit our website to find out how much our Confetti Calculator would recommend for your wedding party.
Our standard delivery is 3-5 working days and we generally aim to dispatch within 2 working days for non-personalised items and 3 working days for personalised items.
Don’t worry if you’ve forgotten about confetti, we do also have a next working day delivery for orders before midday.
If your wedding is less than 3 months away you can order right away and the petals will keep fine when stored away from heat, moisture and light.
If your wedding is over 3 months away you can still order now and select Delayed Delivery, that way you can tick it off your list and we will send out the petals 3-6 weeks before your big day.
You can indeed, you can personalise your Confetti Cones, or Confetti Pops. You can design them on the website so you see what it looks like before you order. There are 19 designs to choose from and you can even upload your own design too. Add your names, choose your colours and select your confetti mix.
If I order several months in advance of my wedding, will my confetti stay fresh?
We recommend ordering no more than 3 months before your wedding for immediate delivery, but you can order months or years in advance by using our Delayed Delivery service and we will post out your order closer to your wedding day.
All our petals are dye-free so have never had a problem with colour running.
The most popular way to use petal confetti is throwing over the newlyweds, but you can also use it for scattering on your wedding tables or down the aisle too!
