How much do bomboniere cost?

Thank you for your question.  It really depends if you're happy to assemble your own bomboniere or pay a bomboniere business such as ourselves to provide the gifts for you.  We offer both options. For example we offer DIY supplies including empty small glass jars starting from $1.00 each (discounts available too for larger quantities).  These are great for filling with lollies, homemade jam or honey.  They are preserving jars and are food safe.  We also sell personalised labels and tags separately for decoration.  We also offer personalised lolly jars or decorated clear boxes ranging from $3.60 to $6.20.  Hope this gives you an idea on what bomboniere would cost you.

Cheap bridal party thankyou gift ideas?

Hi Rebecca

The most affordable option for bomboniere (take home gifts) for your bridal party guests would be to assemble your own as opposed to paying someone to make the gifts for you. We offer both options.

Little lolly jars are always a hit and there is a huge choice of confectionery these days from mini musks, mini jelly beans, rock candy, candy coated chocolate beans (M & M's) and more.  You can often purchase these in 1kg or 500g bags from confectionery suppliers.  Or if you know someone who is a great cook and can make homemade jam you could provide jam favours?

We sell empty small preserving glass jars ranging from 40ml to 190ml.  A great choice of lid colours too including black, gold, silver or white. Our 40ml jars are priced between $0.80 each and $1.00 depending on quantity required. We also sell personalised tags and labels.

Hope this helps!

is it worth giving bomboniere if only half takes theirs home?

Thank you for your question.  It's a very good point and I am sure this is common too and happens at many weddings. Unfortunately some guests may just naturally forget so just something you can't control I'm afraid.  If you choose something edible then some guests may open and enjoy eating their treats during the night.  I have only seen sugared almonds wrapped in tulle left behind at some tables before but if you offer chocolates or lollies I am sure most guests wouldn't forget them!  We supply Jelly Bellys in personalised jars which allows guests to enjoy them during the evening and also carry home.  Any wasted bombonieres can always be re-gifted to the venue staff, photographer, etc.

Best of luck!

do i have to give bomboniere?

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

Thank you for your question. It's certainly not compulsory to give bomboniere to guests.  I have attended many weddings and there was only one wedding I can think of where they chose not to give bomboniere. It was a very elegant and expensive wedding so it didn't really matter as the guests were treated to a delicious 5 star 3 course meal in a beautiful setting.  I think if your budget will allow it, it's a nice idea.  You can spend anything from $1.00 to $10.00 and still find something nice to decorate the tables with and a little gift for your guests to take home.  Chocolates are always a winner for all ages and genders.  We have quality 25g embossed foil wrapped heart milk chocolates called 'Romeo Hearts' which are a decent sized chocolate (like having a small chocolate bar) and look lovely placed on the tables just as they are. For $1.30 per chocolate (available in pks of 50 pcs) it's an affordable option.  Your choice of gold, silver, red or pink embossed foil.  The chocolate tastes delicious and we source them from a local chocolate manufacturer.

Otherwise our affordable personalised mini honey jars are popular for all ages and genders. Most people love honey!  We can offer little personalised jelly bean jars for the children too.

Hope this is helpful.  Regards, Kelly

how much per person should i spend for wedding favours?

Thank you for your question.  It's a personal choice really and depends if you have a budget for bomboniere. I find with smaller weddings eg 30 guests, brides can afford to spend $5 to $6 per gift as the overall total spent on bomboniere is reasonable.  However for larger weddings most brides who have purchased with us spend around $3.75-$4.00 per gift.  Our mini personalised honey jars are very affordable and a practical size for ladies to place in their handbags. They are $4.00 each for less than 100, $3.75 for 100-299 or $3.50 for 300 or more guests.  If you like the sound of 'mixing it up' we also offer mini personalised Jelly Belly jars in the same size jars as the honey.  These are $4.20 each and look great mixed together with our honey jars on the tables.  We can source many different delicious flavours available in single colours if you have a colour theme.

Hope our response has been helpful and please don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of any further assistance.  Regards, Kelly

what can i give guests that doesnt cost too much? and can i give them collective gifts for families

Thanks for your question.  The most affordable option is to assemble your own bomboniere. We sell a range of small glass jars in different shapes and sizes (eg round, square and hexagonal).  They are great for filling with your favourite type of confectionery.  Our jar prices range from $1.40 to $2.00 (discounts offered for quantities exceeding 50). We also sell clear bomboniere boxes from $0.80 each.  Discounts offered for 100 or more. In addition we sell personalised labels and tags in kraft or white.  If you would prefer all the work to be done for you, consider our mini round personalised honey filled jars for $4.00 each!  Discounts offered for 100 or more.

For family gifts we suggest a larger jar with generous amount of confectionery. Our jars are also suitable for filling with homemade jam or honey. They are food safe preserving jars and great quality.

Good luck with your decision.

Warm Regards, Kelly

I dont want to gift my friends and family candles, are there any other bomboniere options?

nothing cliche or expensive please

We suggest edible bomboniere and ideally something that would suit everyone (all ages).  Our most popular and affordable gift is our personalised mini honey jars. If you require less than 100, they are just $4.00 each including the personalised label of your choice (which we apply on the jar for you).  We source the honey jars from a reputable honey supplier in Australia.  The round mini jars are filled with 42g of Australian Yellow Box honey (delicious).  The quality and presentation of the honey is very good as well.  For quantities of 100 or more we offer discounts.  We deliver the honey jars to Australia-wide (except WA as unable to send honey due to quarantine laws - we can suggest other options for WA brides).  We package the honey jars extremely well.  Please view our page under the Bomboniere category for picture examples. We also sell empty small glass jars (so you can fill with your own lollies to save cost), personalised labels, personalised tags, hessian gift bags, coloured gift bags, confectionery and more!

Best of luck with your decision!

How do I give the bomboniere to my guests if I'm not having tables?

My venue is only small and cocktail themed. Should I make a little table for it near the exit? I don't want it to be tacky.

Hi Gracey. The most popular option would be to display your bomboniere on a small table (perhaps near the cake table or near the exit door). If you choose attractive looking gifts (especially if they are colour themed) you may want to make them a feature at your venue. Your guests will notice them more if you display near the cake table. If you had small boxes or honey jars for example you could even display them in a tower and build them up to stand out. I have a few photo examples of how you can display bomboniere in a group if you want to see some ideas. One bride had a vintage style wedding and displayed her lolly jars in an old wooden cupboard with the doors left open (and chalk board saying - 'please take one' and then a 'love heart' with initials of bride and groom). If you decide to have them near the exit door then either someone should hand them out or someone could make an announcement with a microphone so everyone knows to take one. However some guests may forget so best if someone hands them out. If you are having the cake as dessert, perhaps the waiters can hand around the cake slices and bomboniere at same time. So perhaps think of a gift that's quite small and elegant. Hope this helps and best of luck!

What are good bomboniere ideas for the male guests?

We are unsure what to do for the male guests.

Our affordable Mini Round Personalised Honey Jars and Jelly Belly Jars are popular for both Male and Female Guests. We also sell a range of small glass jars empty in different sizes if you wish to fill with nuts, mints or other confectionery that men might enjoy. Personalised Labels and Tags are available for purchase separately. We also sell hessian bags in a range of sizes if you wish to package a small gift for the men.

How much do people normally spend on bomboniere?

Brides can save money if they are happy to assemble their own bomboniere eg confectionery gifts. If they are happy to source the supplies themselves, they may only spend $2.50 - $3.00 per gift. In my experience, for those seeking professionally assembled bomboniere (where we do the work for them) I find people can afford to spend more per guest is having a small wedding eg 30 guests. So they might be happy to spend at least $5.00 per gift. For weddings exceeding 80 guests I would say the average spend would be around $4.00- $4.50. Larger weddings exceeding 200 guests usually like to spend less than $4.00.

What is a bomboniere?

What is a bomboniere? How are bomboniere different from wedding favours?

A bomboniere is a small gift (also known as favours) which are given to guests attending a special event eg Wedding, Christening etc. It's a way for the hosts to say thank you for their attendance and for sharing their day. Also makes a great decoration for the tables.
