Traditionally rice is thrown at the bride and groom to bring them fertility and good luck and the word confetti comes from the Italians who traditionally threw sweets at the lucky couple, confetto.
All this, however, sounds painful and as we are always searching for eco friendly alternatives to our weddings, we were delighted to find this new product, rice butterflies which we will now be stocking in our shop.
These gorgeous butterflies are currently available in white, red, yellow, green and blue but shortly will be available in pink. As they are so lightweight they stay in the air for longer ensuring your photographer will capture the magic and give your photos the wow factor.
We love them and with all the symbolic meanings behind throwing rice at the happy couple, we cannot think of a better way to start your married life than to be blessed by fluttering butterflies!
