Not a paintball question....Where can I find a confetti spreader?

Hi everyone

I am helping a friend with her wedding soon and she want a confetti spreader that can throw out 1" confetti (cannot be a canon or use a compress air source since those are too loud).

I keep seeing this one on youtube:

UFO Confetti Spreader - YouTube

But I can't seem to find it anywhere locally or in the US.

Is anyone aware of where I can find one? I need to be able to mount it on a build-in truss system so it cannot be too heavy.

Thanks

Thanks

I already tried those. The first 2 can't handle 1" confetti, anything beyond the super small confetti will jammed the machine.

The third one, I saw, but I am not sure, it seem to suggest small size confetti too.

Thanks for the suggestion everyone, this is going to be mounted 14' above the ground without much of a hiding spot. The confetti is suppose to go off during the couple's first dance so it have to be as discrete as possible. The rest of the light around the room are connected to a DMX controller so that I can dim them during the first dance.

I need something that can be control remotely (wired or not).

How about a simple idea? Take a large piece of tissue paper and add the confetti into the middle, gently fold it up, attach a piece of fishing line to the bottom so you can just rip the paper open and let the confetti out?
