The presentation of bomboniere – otherwise known as a favour – to each wedding guest is a time honoured tradition that gives you the opportunity to let your guests know how much you appreciate them sharing your special day with you. Your bomboniere is a celebration of love and friendship, and should be chosen with care.

Some couples prefer the very traditional gift of sugar-coated almonds presented in a little tulle bag, while ecologically minded brides and grooms have been known to give each guest a tree seedling to be taken home and planted as a memento of the wedding day. 

Your choice of bomboniere is very personal. If you have a charitable cause that you are particularly keen to support, do as many couples have done and make a donation to the charity on behalf of your guests, giving each guest a card letting them know what has been done. Or, if you have a treasured family recipe for a yummy jam, cookies, or some other similar treat, why not make your favours?

Cookies can be presented in pretty clear plastic bomboniere boxes tied with ribbon, while your jam would look divine in little glass jars. If your bomboniere is labelled with each guest’s name, this can make an attractive and practical alternative to reception place name cards. Ideally, your bomboniere should match your wedding theme and colours. You can achieve this either by selecting suitably toned packaging and trims, or by choosing an item appropriate to your theme.  

Below we have found a great range of bomboniere ideas designed to suit a variety of celebration styles – modern, vintage, traditional, alternative, organic, sweet, and themed – and a wide range of budgets.
