10 Unique Ideas for Wedding Bomboniere


Bomboniere, also known as favours, are small gifts given out to your guests on special occasions to thank them for sharing your special day. Traditionally, wedding bomboniere included five Jordan almonds (a type of sugared almonds, also known as confetti) which symbolise health, wealth, happiness, long life and fertility. The bitterness of the almond against the sweetness of the sugar coating symbolises the bitter sweetness of marriage.

Whilst the tradition of giving out wedding favours is a very old one, modern brides are searching for new and unique wedding favours to show their thanks to guests on their big day. Modern wedding favours tend to complement the theme or season of the event or the couple’s interests.

When you spend so long planning your wedding to suit your own tastes and ideas to have it be unique to you, why wouldn’t you want your wedding favours to do the same? Our wedding shop has everything you’re looking for - so let’s look at some unique bomboniere ideas.

 1.       Bird Cage Tea Light and Place Card Holders

Continue your love bird theme with these beautiful Birdcage Candle Holders which can also be used as a place card holder for your reception table.

These are a bomboniere which your guests can keep and use for years to come. Each bird cage comes with a tea light candle with a pop-open door to place the candle inside, along with a “perch” for keeping your place cards held in place.

These beautiful bombonieres would also suit a garden themed wedding and would perfectly compliment a vintage themed wedding with their elegant charm.





 2.       By the Sea Lighthouse Tea Light Holder

Continue your beach themed wedding into your reception with these Lighthouse Candle Holders. Light the tea lights to create an ambient glow or rest your place cards against them to “light the way” for your guests.

These Lighthouses continue your beach or summer theme without being tacky and are a keepsake for your guests to remember your special day.









3.       Fortune Cookie Wedding Favours

Send good fortune to your guests with these charming bomboniere which also double as a place card holder.

Each comes with a thin name card so that you can slip your guests name into each fortune cookie favour (perhaps with a secret message too!). Perfect for an Asian themed wedding.









4.       Funny Wedding Favours

Often the moments we remember are the ones that make us laugh. These Bride and Groom toilet paper rolls are the perfect wedding favour for the lighthearted couple and will definitely have guests talking about it for years to come! Pop them into the bathrooms at your reception or into hotel welcome bags for out-of-town guests or if you’re having a destination wedding.












 5.       Warm their Hearts through Their Bellies
If you’re a Bakerella Bride (or gourmet groom!), this is a perfect wedding favour for you. Tie a thank you note to these adorable heart shaped cookie cutters and treat your guests to a bomboniere that is useful and shows off your passion.










 6.       Send your Guests Home with a Wish

Buddha is the symbol of happiness, contentment and prosperity so these Laughing Buddha Place Card Holders are the perfect favour to send home with your guests. Doubling as both a favour and place card holder, these happy Buddhas are the perfect keepsake for Oriental Themed Weddings and are guaranteed to put a smile on your guests’ faces.









7.       That’s Amore
