Need some help with confetti etiquette! (confettiquette?)
We haven't decided on a venue yet, but the places we're looking at are all outdoors, like forests and heritage gardens. I'd love to have confetti- it's fun, it's old-school, and it makes for great pictures!- but not at the expense of hours of tidying it up or ruining the natural beauty of a place.
I've heard that paper confetti, biodegradable confetti, rice, etc. are all more environmentally positive ways of doing it, but I don't want to spoil any wilderness for the tourists and dog-walkers who visit the area in the following days. Using real flower petals might be a really great option, but I've only ever been to weddings with paper confetti so I've no experience with whether flowers actually work as confetti! It will hopefully be an October wedding, so other Autumnal foliage-type alternatives are welcome suggestions
Have any of you used confetti at outdoor weddings? And are real flower petals as good as they look in the pictures, or just a nuisance to throw?
