Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Groovy Glass offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

How far in advance should you order your bomboniere

What's the usual lead time on bomboniere please?

Groovy Glass

We always advise couples a minimum of 4 weeks notice for your bomboinere.  The last thing you want is to have hold ups with delivery etc.  Our suggestion is get your bomboniere ordered as soon as you can rather than leave it to the last minute.

Bride or groom first on thank you?

On the thank you card attached to the Bombonerie, does the bride or groom go first? Similar to the invite?

Groovy Glass

There is no wrong or right here.  Entirely up to you and your partner.  The tradition is that the Brides name goes first on invites then after that the marriage its the Grooms name first.  Hope this helps.

Do we have to have favours for the guests?

Groovy Glass

This question is often asked by couples. The answer is no.  Its your day you can do whatever you want.  Wedding favours are a gesture of thanks to your guests.  Wedding favours, guest gifts or Bomboneire are the different terminolgy given.  There is a long history of wedding bomboneire that evolved with the French and then moved across to Europe.   Don't feel pressured to do a wedding favour if that's not what you and your partner want to do.   Many couples use the favour as part of the table setting for their guests, including colour themes and name tags.  These days there is a lot on offer in this area and many couples are DIY their gifts.  Enjoy your wedding planning and I hope the above helps you.

do i have to give bomboniere?

looking at options and can't seem to find many that suit all genders and interests. Any ideas?

Groovy Glass

Great question and congrats on your pending nuptials. 

Bomboniere started in France over 300 years ago.  A small box of of bon-bons was given at various celebrations including weddings & christenings, this then spread through to other parts of europe in particular Greece & Italy.  It originally consisted of and uneven number of sugar coated almonds, representing the hi's and lows of married life.  The five almonds represented happiness, health, wealth, children and a long life.  

Bomboniere has evolved over the years and you will see many wonderful and creative ideas many of which double up as the place card setting.  At the end of the day this is you and your partners special day so if you want to forego the bomboniere that is entirely up to you and your partner.

If you are looking for a gender netural gift we supply personalised glassware.  We can include your names and message on the glassware.  Feel free to check us out on the Easy Weddings website.

I hope the above explanation of Bomboniere has helped you and wish you all the very best as you plan your special day.

Best Wishes

how much per person should i spend for wedding favours?

Groovy Glass


Great question and one that is often asked.  The amount is solely dependent on you and your partner.  Depending on how many guest you are having to your wedding will utlimately set out what you want to spend.  Majority of couples work around a budget of $5.00 - $10.00 per guest.

The best thing to do is to set a budget that way you can look at the various options in the bomboneire category and see what works best for you and your partner.

Happy wedding planning.

All the best
