Whether you’re planning a proposal, already engaged and planning a honeymoon or just married Confetti has it all. From wedding insurance to wedding invitations, and hen party ideas to how to propose.

Discover everything you need to know about the exciting time before your wedding day, and what happens once the big day has passed.

If you’re thinking of proposing to your partner, then Confetti is the perfect place to start. We have an A‐Z guide to popping the question, as well as a guide to throwing the perfect engagement party to celebrate. Once the excitement of making the big announcement is over, you may be wondering where to start with your wedding planning. It can seem like a big task; however Confetti can break down the planning process into manageable chunks, so you’ll be walking down the aisle before you know it!

The first place to begin is with invitations to let everyone know the details of the big day. From tips on what to buy to money‐saving ideas and inspiration for making your own wedding stationery (such as your wedding invitation cards), Confetti can help you make sure that your invitations leave your guests eager to arrive at the wedding venue on the day! Make sure you arrive in style with Confetti’s guide to choosing your wedding transport.

The hen and stag parties are traditionally seen as the “last night of freedom” but the days of strippers and embarrassing hi‐jinx are in the past, as hens and stags increasingly choose city‐breaks, activity or spa days, or sporting events for their parties. We explain who is responsible for what, recommend top hen and stag destinations for globe trotting couples, and offer money‐saving tips for budget brides.

Once the hen and stag parties are out of the way, the wedding date will be almost upon you, minimise stress by making sure you’re covered with wedding insurance. The peace of mind that wedding insurance can bring you is invaluable when planning your wedding, so make sure you’re not left out in the cold in the unlikely event of a dress‐disaster or failing florist!

The honeymoon is a wonderful time to enjoy one another’s company after the hectic run‐up to the wedding. Do your research and make sure it’s the holiday of a lifetime with Confetti’s complete guide to honeymoon destinations with a handy check‐list to make sure you don’t forget a thing. If you don’t have the time or resources for an exotic beach holiday, then check out our guide to romantic breaks in Europe for inspirational trips closer to home. Before you jet off anywhere you’ll need to take care of any legal issues arising from your recent name change. Make sure your passport has been updated, and let everyone else know with our guide to financial and legal matters.

From the proposal to passport changes, Confetti has everything covered to see you seamlessly through your wedding planning journey. Find information on:
