Confetti fall into Adminstration

Confetti in Administration

Wedding giant Confetti have gone into administration today and its network of 5 high street stores are to close.  This came as a bit of a shock to us as the Confetti website has been around for as long as we have been in the wedding business (since 1999) and has seemingly grown from strength to strength.   Confetti started life as a wedding web portal and had a major revamp of its website last year which I did criticize on this site.   Lots of tweaking over the last year has however brought the website back on top again and it now must be sitting in the favourites bar of most bride to be’s as a useful planning and accessories resource.

It is no surprise that the wedding industry has taken a particularly bad knock during the recession and I guess having 5 prominent high street stores made it more difficult to cut its operating costs.  48 of the 94 jobs are going and the remainder will support the web store as it seeks to find a buyer.  It will be sad to see Confetti go completely and I hope somebody comes along to snap one of the leading wedding brands up.  If it is rescued I imagine that any taker will be much more cautious to turn a successful online store into a bricks and mortar one again.
