Petals

How close to my wedding should I place my order?

The petals will keep for 6-12 months if stored correctly in a cool, dark place. However, we have a delayed order system which allows you to place your order straight away and we will post it to you approximately 2 weeks before your wedding.

How long do the petals last?

The petals will keep for 6-12 months if stored correctly in a cool, dark place.

Are the petals biodegradable?

All our confetti are 100% biodegradable which is often the only type allowed by venues.

Can the petals stain?

We cannot 100% guarantee that colour will not run as these are natural coloured petals, we have never had a single case of this occurring!

How much confetti do I need?

This is a guide to how many litres of real petal confetti you will need for your big day. Some mixes may alter slightly from this depending on the size of the petals.

Typically a handful of confetti is between 50ml – 100ml. The figures are an estimate depending on how you display the confetti.

 LITRES GUESTS CONES TABLES
1 10 10 6
2 20 20 12
3 30 30 18
4 40 40 24
5 50 50 30


I already have my own packaging, how much confetti do I need?

It really depends on what packaging you have. If you base it on a handful of confetti being between 50ml – 100ml depending on how large your hands are!

What does a litre of petals look like?

Petals are measured using plastic jugs as you would find in your kitchen. Single litre jugs are scooped in the petals to fill them.

We then part seal the bags and take out as much air as possible. This prevents them popping in the post as often the mail service doesn’t handle our petals as delicately as we do! It also helps the petals keep for longer if you’re not using them for a while.
