Flutter? Maybe Not So Much.

Mr Frenchie, Mama Frenchie, and I visited the winery on Saturday to meet with our potential florist (which I will tell you about soon). When we were there, I thought it would be a good idea to make sure we were allowed to do a toss. Annie (the coordinator) wasn’t sure if confetti would be alright with maintenance, but we are definitely allowed to do a toss with flower petals.

So, this fluttery goodness may not be in our future…



… but at least our dream of a toss is coming true. YAY! — I’m just so excited!

Also, since we aren’t having children in the wedding, we have found a way for Mr F’s cousin and my younger cousins to participate… if they’re up for it. I’m going to make paper cones (a future DIY project) to hold the petals (hopefully fluttery confetti) and put them in a basket for easy hand out. Hopefully the young ladies will be excited to hand these out to our guests as they arrive to the ceremony.

Are you giving the children in your family roles outside of the traditional wedding party roles?

    Have you looked into eco-fetti? It tosses like regular confetti, but disolves with water (making it acceptable to most vendors). Just a thought…

    Silver lining: Not as much work cutting up/creating your little fluttery pieces of paper. Will you use actual petals, or something similar?

    That’s a great way to have give kids something to do – how cute will they be with their cones of flower petals, too?

    ahh – rachwest beat me to it! There are several different type of eco confetti. Some of which just needs the sprinklers or a hose before its all gone!! Its relatively new, so your venue might not know its an option.

    Have you looked for non teeny tiny eco-fetti? It’s really hard to find. If anyone knows where to get some, let me know!

    @ doctorgirl: I went to yahoo and typed in eco-fetti and I came up with this website: http://www.confettistationery.com/productcatalog/productdisplay.asp?category_list=102
    they have eco-fetti that didn’t look too tiny and the price was $8.90 for a bag containing 3 cups of the eco-fetti. That was the only site I found so far. I hope it helps!

    When I was reading the contract to our reception venue and it said “no sparklers”. I put the brakes on signing it until our coordinator assured us that we just had to make sure they were outside (stored, lit, used from start to finish-they couldn’t be inside at all!). I guess it made sense because it is a historical building that they don’t want to burn down!

    I’m doing flower petal cones and have had my junior high-age cousins help me make all the cones and the two youngest will be holding the baskets full of them for our guests!

    It’s a great way to get family involved!
