Q: What is a bomboniere?

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

A: by Kelly Beans Bomboniere

“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. Bomboniere also makes for great decoration for the tables.”

Q: How much do people normally spend on bomboniere?

A: by Wedding Honey

“It varies a lot however under $10 is reasonable in our experience. It also depends so much on your budget and the number of guests at the wedding. The most important thing is to feel that you are getting value for your expenditure and that you are happy with the style and uniqueness of the gift. That it feels right and is not something given out of a sense of duty.”

Q: 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.”

A: by Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes

“At many cocktail style weddings, our cookies are taken around on platters by the wait staff to offer one to everyone. Or you could have a separate table set up with your chosen bomboniere – with a cute little sign. If it’s done properly, it won’t be tacky.”

Q: What are some good bomboniere ideas for the male guests?

“We are unsure what to do for the male guests.”

A: by Aussie Wedding Shop

“Your choice of bomboniere for your guests is your way to say thank you and there are a few way you can go about this. Firstly, should your budget not stretch for individual gifts for everyone, perhaps one thoughtful favour per couple may be for you, particularly if you’re choosing a slightly more dearer option.

Another great idea is to provide each guest the same bomboniere of your choice, whether that be a practical, edible, live, or decor option.”

Q: I don’t want to gift my friends and family candles, are there any other bomboniere options?

“Nothing cliche or expensive please.”

A: by Aussie Wedding Shop

“There are endless ideas for your wedding favours. Perhaps you’re following a wedding day theme or colour scheme, or adore edible treats tucked into small contemporary boxed or bags. Go natural with seeds, plants, jams, or honey. If you’re a practical bride, you may like keyrings, bottle openers, glasses, or even better, have place card holders at each guest’s table sitting. They look fabulous on the night and are so useful to hold photos or notes for years to come. The gift that keeps giving!
