An Italian Wedding Tradition You Will Love: Confettata

When you plan your destination wedding in Italy, you are often asked if you want a "confettata" or if you bring your own "confetti".

But, what is a Confettata???

Elegant Traditional Italian Wedding Confettata - Our Italian Fairytale - Get Married in Italy

When we, as Italians, use the word confetti, we mean sugared almonds, and not the traditional confetti that guests usually throw after the wedding ceremony. For Italian weddings it is very popular to dedicate a specific table only to confetti.

Of course, you can have fun decorating the confettata table according to your wedding style, by adding lights and flowers as you like. In the first image, I created an elegant confettata for an Italian wedding in a wonderful venue: a medieval castle. I used old beer stain with the castle emblem as vases, crystal candies holders and elegant tealight holders. For a more country wedding style, you might opt for some wood wine boxes and corks to decorate your table. Jam jars would be perfect as vases and confetti containers, as I did in the second image.
