Bubbles for confetti - another wedding idea!

bubbles for confetti
I know that bubbles at weddings are really common these days - you just have to go into Paperchase and look at the incredible range of bubble mixtures in different shaped tiny little bottles. So I'm not claiming to be doing anything new or groundbreaking here. However, having tried out a bunch of these tiny, posh bubbles, I decided that I actually wanted to stick with the old skool bubble mixture bottles from my childhood and found a load on ebay.
They worked really well and loads of our guests had a great time blowing enormous bubbles as we walked back down the aisle after the ceremony, as well as throughout the night. There were a fair few kids at the wedding, and they really appreciated the bubbles too I think.

We made sure everyone got their own bottle of bubble mixture so that they could take them home at the end of the night if they wanted to. Everyone loves a freebie! I recommend bubbles as a fun alternative to confetti that is MUCH easier to clean up, and looks really cool in photos. My one word of advice would be to have some kind of sign or little note on the programme to let guests know that the bubbles are in place of confetti because we did have a few people ask us where the confetti was, and some people didn't really understand what the bubble mixture was for - just a heads up!
