The Confetti Shower

After emerging from their wedding ceremony as man and wife the happy couple are usually showered with confetti by their guests.

The wedding photographer will standing ready and will be able to capture a stunning image of bride and groom being showered with confetti.

Today we use paper or metallic effect confetti as well as dried flowers. Traditionally though, Confetti is the Italian name for sweets, which in Italy are thrown over the couple as they emerge from the church. Before the use of paper confetti the happy couple was showered with petals, grain or rice. This was to bestow prosperity and fertility on the bride and groom.
