Ideas for DIY Wedding Favours & Bomboniere


If your budget is tight, gather your bridesmaids together and plan a DIY favour party!  There really is no reason why you can't create something spectacular yourself with a bit of crafty and thrifty thinking.  Here's some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Seed packet wedding favours are a cheap and cheerful choice. These favours suggest new growth and blooming love, just as the wedding marks the beginning of your new life together and the growth of your family.
  • What's a wedding without love songs? Burn CDs of your favourite romantic songs, including the song you've chosen for your bridal waltz and pop on a gorgeous personalised CD cover.
  • For the culinary couple, try hand made recipe books complete with the recipes you've enjoyed cooking together.
  • Sweet treats as always a hit. Guests appreciate the personal touch of homemade jam presented with ribbons or raffia; or bomboniere chocolate hearts or shortbread cookies frosted with your monogrammed initials. Remember: it will take time and energy to make this happen, so call on friends and family to help.
  • There's nothing that says ‘warm and cosy' like a hot cup of hot chocolate and winter wedding guests will love little bottles of powdered hot chocolate. Buy cocoa powder in bulk, or make up your own recipe, and then pour into cute bottles and tie with ribbon.
  • Lolly buffets are a delightful and inexpensive favour option. Guests love browsing along the long table of sweet treats and filling their own little lolly bags or boxes.
  • Consider making a donation to a charity. Print out cards, or bookmarks, which tell them that you've donated money in their honor. Or buy a lottery ticket for each guest and hope that someone wins big on your special day!

Regardless of how much your favours have cost, it's important to wrap them up with style!  Packaging can be bags or boxes, tissue paper, coloured wrap or fabric.  Pink Frosting has a beautiful range of wedding tags, bags and boxes, personalised ribbons and other decorations. Perfect for either the done-for-you or the do-it-yourself bride - let your imagination run wild!
