Bomboniere or Wedding Favours are small gifts given as a gesture of appreciation to guests from the bride and groom during the wedding reception,
usually placed on the wedding reception tables near each guest’s name tag.
They can be edible, wedding themed, or a practical gift, and kept as a wedding keepsake.
Wedding Bomboniere and Gift Ideas
Edible wedding bomboniere:
Candy and chocolate bomboniere such as; sugared almonds, chocolate hearts, personalized chocolate, confectionery, and candy filled jars, tins and boxes.
Practical wedding favours/bomboniere and giftware ideas:
Crystal or glassware favours, disposable wedding cameras, salt and pepper shakers, soaps, paper lanterns, bottle stoppers, cupcake holder favours, candles, mini photo frames, key rings, silver items, coasters, bookmark favours, coloured themed favours, organza or satin gift favours, or decorated unique favour boxes made of tin, paper or glass.
You can select bomboniere to match the colour theme of your wedding; such as a coloured organza bag of sugared almonds, or a coloured or ribboned favour box with treats, chocolates, or any gift within.
You can also add your creative touch and diy. You can easily source organza bags or favour boxes from local stores and fill them with a gift that reflects you and your grooms personal tastes and individuality. Alternately, use wrapping paper and ribbon to wrap your gift.
Another trend is the ‘candy bar’ which can be used as your bomboniere, or in addition to your wedding favours, where your guests can fill their own containers with edible candy treats beautifully set up on a table at the reception.
You can’t be everywhere at once so make sure all the best informal moments are captured on your special day by having a disposable camera on each table for guests to use.
Bridal Party Giftware
Buying the members of your bridal party a gift is common practice in Australia, and shows your appreciation of their contribution to your wedding. The type of gift depends on the recipient’s age, sex, personality, interests, and your budget.
Giftware ideas for your maid of honour and bridesmaids,
and the mother of the bride and/or groom;
Jewellery; such as earrings, a necklace, or a bracelet to complement their bridesmaid outfits, or gifts such as; shoe clips, purse mirrors, bath salts and soaps, cosmetic bag, jewellery box, or engraved wine flutes or champagne glass. The list is endless and you know what your friends will love.
Giftware ideas for your best man and groomsmen,
and father of bride and/or groom;
Pewter mugs, Stein glasses, beer glasses and mugs, a hip flask, cuff links, a watch, money clip, bottle opener, coaster set, key chain, bottle stopper, pocket knife, business card holder, personalized shot glasses, wallet, engraved pen, golf gifts, can cooler, bar gift sets. Many gift selections can be personalised; either printed, embossed, etched, or engraved.
Giftware ideas for your flower girl;
A piece of jewellery to wear with their outfit will always go down well with your young flower girl, or maybe a embroidered fluffy toy, a jewellery box, or an engraved keep sake.
Giftware ideas for your page boy;
A page boy gift must be one of the hardest to find; maybe an embroidered teddy bear or soft toy, sweet treats, or an engraved keep sake. Better still, give him and engraved keepsake as well as a toy car – that way you wont disappoint him with something that he doesn’t really want, as all little boys like their toy cars.
We hope you can use some of these ideas when planning your wedding.
