Wedding and party trims

Written by    Last updated: June 18, 2007

No matter what wedding or party theme you choose, we have all the trimmings you need to make your day all the more fabulous

Confetti has an amazing selection of gorgeous trims, which are decorative bits and pieces that you can use to add a personal touch to everything from invitations and to wedding reception and party tables and really help when you have chosen a particular wedding theme that you want to show off.

Whether you need a luxe roll of ribbon for wrapping around favour boxes, glamorous jewels for your stationery, or delicate butterflies to flutter across your tables and add to your overall wedding theme, we’ve got everything you need to make your event truly special. Just take a look at our trim guide.

And don’t forget, we also sell mini glue dots which allow you to easily attach your trims without ending up with glue everywhere!

How to choose your trims

Use trims in the right way and you can get a great look for your table planners, place cards, favour boxes and bags, or your create‐your‐own stationery, and we have a huge selection of trims in exclusive designs and in a huge array of colours and styles for you… but what should you choose?

Here’s some suggestions of what to use when:

RIBBON
Use soft, satin or chiffon ribbon to trim invitations, place cards, favours boxes, napkins, table decorations, or even your cake.

JEWELS
You could stick these on invitations, orders of service, menus, place cards and favour boxes for the perfect finishing touch. Think about sprinkling them on the table too!

BUTTERFLIES
Our feather, glitter butterflies are perfect for adding to place cards, favour boxes, napkins, bouquets or floral displays. For example, you could pin them into your bouquet, or even in your hair!

FEATHERS
These delicate marabou feathers are really glam. Scatter them on your tables or attach them to your place cards.

How to attach your trims

There’s no need to end up head‐to‐toe in glue and sellotape because no matter what you want to stick your trims to, all you need to do is use didi glue dots(for the smaller diamante or crystal trims) and mini gluedots for bigger trims.

These are double‐sided, sticky dots which will stick to all kinds of materials ‐ with no mess – which makes them perfect for attaching smaller trims to cards, boxes and place cards.

And if you have a whole line of trims to stick? Use a glue line!

If you are trying to attach a small, fiddly trim, use a pair of tweezers. And don’t forget to cut the end of ribbons on an angle or use pinking shears to stop them from fraying and make them look posh!

How to judge how much ribbon you need

If you have decided to use soft, satin or chiffon ribbon to trim invitations, place cards, favours boxes, napkins, table decorations, or even your cake, we have a huge selection of ribbons for you to choose from which are sold in rolls of 10 metres.
