i would check with your venue 1st, if they allow it or if there is an added charge to clean up.

In my honest opinion I wouldn’t want to ruin my love notes, I sill have Fi and mines in a box and love looking at them as years go past. Also it’s alot of work to make enough confetti, ask your hand if it feels lize siezing up, seriously crampage haha. Maybe fold them into origami?

Personally, I love reading the notes I have from SO and I’d be sad to make them into confetti.  However, he wrote them when he was 22-24, so they weren’t super immature- so maybe I just don’t have a comparable situation.  I think if you do want to destroy them, this is a sweet way to do it.  Personally, I would hang onto them.  Maybe mix the chopped up love notes with silver metallic confetti or something to unify them and make them seem more celebratory/less like old torn up notes?  Also, I think the way you cut them up is important.  They should be in very small and uniform pieces and absolutely not torn (or it’ll be like the paper litter that people threw everywhere on the last day of school).

I think you should keep them! But, you could always make copies on white paper and make them into confetti. That way, when you two are 60 years old, you can re-read the notes and laugh at how silly and immature they were, and you’ll have beautiful confetti photos to look at!

I think if you cut up your notes, no matter how silly or inane, you will regret it later. Why don’t you make copies?

I think its a beautiful idea. I recently went to a wedding where the bride and groom had been in a long ditance relationship and had saved all the train tickets back and forth to see one another – they made confetti out of those train tickets and sprinkled them on the tables as part of the decor. It was a really lovely, personal touch!!

I wouldn’t want to ruin my love notes. I keep all the cards/flower messages and everything my fi gets me. I always have.

Maybe you could photocopy them and make confetti out of those?

thinkyourideais really sweet, especially that your mother had confetti too. look around online for a smallheart hole punch. Make copies just invade you do have the urge to read them again one day. then you can decide whether to use the real or coptercopied version as your confetti. you could also save donesome confetti and potput it in a Christmas ornament later on as a reminder of your wedding day. just my thoughts! sorry I’m on my phone and can’tgobackand correct some of my mistakes without it wanting to delete everything for donesome reason.
