Sad news in the world of wedding this week, as it has been announced that online and high street wedding supplies retailer, Confetti, has gone into administration. According to the Financial Times, the business - which supplied everything from table decorations to save-the-date cards - had a turnover of about £5.7 million. Despite this success, Confetti was left without a backer after the owners sold its stable of businesses to The Hut Group, who subsequently decided that it could not see a future for the wedding supply chain in its current portfolio. Confetti's administrators are now searching for a buyer. Customers are advised that all orders are currently under review, and that they will be contacted via email with an order status update. Contact the Confetti call centre on 0844 848 9696; open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday, or see for more details.
