Throwing Confetti – The throwing of Confetti over newlyweds pre-dates Christ.  It originates from the Pagan Ritual of showering the happy couple with grain to wish them a fruitful union. These days many couples choose to make their own confetti, cutting Heart Shapes from old Romantic Novels, or books relevant to a theme is a great way to save money
