Wedding Bomboniere – Ideas And Tips
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding we hope your lives together are filled with love and happiness. Choosing bomboniere (or party favours), which are the gift from the bride and groom to their guests to say thank you for attending our wedding and sharing our joy, have become increasingly popular here in Australia over the past 20 years.
Traditionally five sugar coated almonds we given to guests as a symbol of such things, as faith, hope and fidelity.
Chocolates are also a very popular choice put into small organza bags or gift boxes tied with ribbons. These chocolates are usually in a heart shape for love, however they can be whatever you wish. You may also just place a single chocolate at each place setting or perhaps two heart chocolate pointed end and will not cost a fortune to do. It is after all just a little thank you. However some brides and their grooms look to give larger gifts and hopefully some of our suggestions will be of help to you.
Being in the wedding decorating industry and having received National and State awards for our decorating, we have obviously decorated a lot of weddings, and produced a lot different bomboniere for our clients.
Little white noodle boxes embellished with perhaps starfish, shells, beads or fresh flowers such as single frangipani blooms can look wonderful and add a lot of beauty to your table. You can add a small card to thank your guests attached or perhaps their name on one side instead of a place card.
Candles are always a lovely wedding favour, and there are many choices available from champagne glass designs in their own acetate box to coloured pillar candles.
Decorating your napkins with something special such as crystal napkin rings for each place setting looks a dream on your wedding guest tables and by adding a small thank you card to these they then become the bomboniere for your guest to take home.
Silver key rings set with diamontes at each place setting in their own acetate boxes are a lovely wedding favour that can be used again and again, reminding your guests of your wedding each time they use their gift.
Your wedding cake supplier may also be able to make a small cup cake similar to your wedding cake and by placing these in clear acetate boxes. it will add to the beauty of the setting of your guest wedding tables.
Roc candy with the names of the bride and groom printed on them in clear bottles tied with a ribbon will always look gorgeous and once again add to the beauty of your decorating.
Always co-ordinate the colour of the bomboniere with the other decorations on your wedding tables, such as flowers, runners or chair covers and sashes to make your wedding look like the dream you have always wanted it to be. Enjoy your most special day.
