WEDDING FAVOURS - TIPS AND IDEAS
Wedding favours or bomboniere are small gifts given to guests as a wedding-day memento. The origins of this simple yet meaningful tradition lie in the decadent era of the Italian Renaissance, where wealthy families would bestow gifts upon their guests.
These days, there are so many different styles and types of wedding favours that it can be difficult to know where to start. Many brides like to coordinate their wedding favours with their wedding theme or colour scheme, particularly as the gifts are traditionally placed at each table setting or beside each place card at the reception. This way your wedding favours can be a delightful addition to dressing up your reception tables.
There are so many things that make for a memorable wedding favour including miniature pot plants, packets or seeds, small bottles of wine or spirits, photo frames, charms and hand-made ornaments. Brides and Grooms are also embracing DIY when it comes to their wedding favours. Many couples are getting busy with their hands to create home-made jams or chutney, fudge, cookies and even candles or soap. If you're more of a crafter, head to the DIY section of our website to see what you can craft up for your guests.
Bomboniere can be as unique as you and will be one of the ways your day is remembered. So get inspired to find the most wonderful way to give your guests a favour.
