Can I use your confetti at my venue?
Unfortunately at some churches and venues, confetti is not allowed to be thrown. Check with your venue first and let them know that our petals are natural, 100% biodegradable and dye-free.
Why choose Pretty Petals real petal confetti?
With more and more wedding venues prohibiting the use of man-made, wedding confetti, freeze-dried petals have become an increasingly popular choice instead. Freeze-dried petals are an eco-friendly, 100% biodegradable alternative to man-made, wedding confetti.
The freeze-drying process is environmentally friendly and does not use any chemicals, therefore producing stunning, soft to touch petals that will not wilt, go wrinkly or go brown and this helps them keep their shape. Each delicate petal is light, perfectly formed and will float down gently once thrown, perfect for creating a magical confetti moment on your special day.
Freeze-dried petals should not be stored in a freezer. Simply storing them in their original packaging, away from extreme temperatures and away from direct sunlight, will be fine. All our petals can be pre-ordered weeks and months in advance of your wedding or special occasion and we will then despatch them to you nearer your date. This is usually 4 weeks before the occasion, but we will arrange this with you first.
So what is freeze-drying?
Freeze drying is a method of preservation which maintains the natural shape and color of the petals without the use of any chemicals. Freeze drying is accomplished by a process called sublimation, that requires special freeze-drying equipment.
First freezing the petals at very low temperatures of -20 or so for 24 hours whereby the moisture is taken out of the petal. The processing time varies depending on the petal but a timeframe of 14 days is about right from harvest to the finished product and of course the shape and natural colour of the petals are maintained, making them long-lasting.
Can I get samples of your confetti before ordering?
We offer a sample service within the U.K. You can order your petal samples here and all petal samples will be sent using 2nd class post, so please allow 3-5 working days for delivery.
