For guaranteed delivery time, the earlier the better. We ideally would love at least 3 months’ notice. This is so we can have your order scheduled to be made fresh right before your required dispatch date and ensure we have all the embellishments/papers etc received and available for your order.  You do not need your final numbers/names at that time, we will just use an estimate at the time of booking and will confirm the numbers/names closer to the date (usually about 3-4 weeks before the required date).

A great question that comes up all the time! We make beautiful personalised wedding rock candy with names and require at least 3 weeks notice. Due to recent Covid-delivery delays, I would allow an additional 2 weeks. Good luck choosing your bombonieres! How exciting!

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.

YAY! Wedding Favours would say that your bomboniere can be ordered anytime from 1 month to 3 months in advance.

It all depends on which bomboniere you are choosing and if the gift is custom made or off-the-shelf.

Even if it is off-the-shelf, it still needs time for the branding and also to secure the blank stock.

Sometimes it is tough to order so far in advance.

I always suggest to over order the quantity of bomboniere over and above the expected guest count. With the extras, you can gift as a thank you to your; celebrant, photographer, car driver, flower arranger, reception venue host, hairdresser, make-up artist etc who are apart of your special day, but don't get to be at the reception.

If the gifts are personalised with guest names, that makes it a bit harder for timing while you await the RSVP's. But even still, ideally allow 4-8 weeks in advance. That way you can cross it off your 'to-do' list as early as possible.

Our usual lead time is five business days once a decision is made on what you are wanting.  Please also allow sufficient time for delivery, which will be dependent on the delivery method (or pick-up) option chosen.

In order to ensure that we can provide exactly what you are after, and to ensure stock levels, we require a minimum of 12 weeks' notice :)

3 months in advance is a good timing that would cover up any possible delays related to custom printing.
