2014 Wedding Favours & Bomboniere Ideas

Sugar almonds?  Chocolate hearts?  So yesterday!  Today’s wedding favours and bomboniere are all about personality, the theme of the wedding day and doing dual purpose.  Here are my fabulous 2014 wedding bomboniere ideas to inspire your choices for your wedding day.

Yee-Hah!  A Little Bit of Country

So much of the countryside takes centre stage in many Australian weddings, and with the rustic country wedding theme becoming one of the most popular in 2014, we just adore these cowboy boot bottle openers, sure to make guests want to kick their heels up all night long.  Men and women alike will adore these favours – they’re practical and fun, as well as being a gorgeous table decoration with the swathe of lace wrapped around the design.

Nautical Romance

Beach weddings are always popular in Australia due to our climate and proximity to the world’s most beautiful coastlines.  Taking the Australian beach setting as your guide, our new range of nautical wedding favours will have guests dreaming of their own romantic seaside getaway.  Here are just a few of my favourite beach wedding bomboniere:

Set Sail Bottle Opener Wedding Bomboniere & Favours

Set Sail Bottle Opener Wedding Bomboniere & Favours

The Set Sail Bottle Openers are a wedding favour winner for me on so many fronts.  I love the elegance of the design for yachting, sailing or beach weddings and the practicality of the gift itself makes it a huge winner.  Guests will no doubt take this home and adore it at their bar – remembering the summery breezes they felt on your romantic seaside wedding day.

Flip Flop Luggage Tag Keychain Wedding Favours

If your wedding day is set to be a bit of fun in the sun, these whimsical and pretty hibiscus embellished beach wedding favours are just the trick.  I would love to receive one of these at a destination or beach wedding – it would look great hanging from my travel bags and would remind me of a wedding day in the sun.

Anchor Wedding Favour Bags

Anchor Wedding Favour Bags

Many couples like to mix tradition with modern on their wedding day and these anchor muslin wedding favour bags allow you to do just that.  These anchor wedding bomboniere bags can be filled with traditional sugar almonds or chocolates (or something more modern like seaglass, shells or customised rock candy) and given to guests in a modern way.  I love the stamping of the anchor motif on these natural bags – take me to the seaside anyday.

Place Cards as Bomboniere

I am a big fan of dual purposing your wedding decorations – why waste money on two items when you can have one work for you in two ways?  One of my favourite dual purpose wedding decorations are wedding place card holders which can double as your wedding bomboniere.  Guests will adore these miniature photo frames in many themes which can hold their names for their place card and then can be reused at home as a photo frame, or our themed place cards that make fun photo holders at home.  Either way, these place cards really pack a wedding decorating punch.  Here are just a few examples:

Wine Cork Wedding Bomboniere Mini Photo Frame

Wine Cork Wedding Bomboniere Mini Photo Frame

Perfect for a vineyard wedding or for any couple that adores wine, these wine cork place card holders do double duty as a mini photo frame wedding bomboniere for guests to take home and display.  The thoughful design including the Maison du Vin references and wine grape motif are sure to please even the toughest wine critic.

Bike Place Card Holders & Wedding Favours

Bike Place Card Holders & Wedding Favours

Ooh la la!  These bicycle place card holders make such a special wedding bomboniere for any couple who cycles, has a vintage theme for their wedding day or who are honeymooning in a cycling destination – Paris, Amsterdam, Tokyo anyone?  Such a pretty reference to a couple’s hobby and the perfect wedding decoration to get your guests excited.

Mason Jar Madness

It seems the world is abuzz with Mason Jars right now, and there’s really good reason!  These rustic jars are so versatile as a party decoration, glass for drinking and also a vintage wedding bomboniere jar.  Make Mason Jars part of your wedding day by creating a personalised mason jar wedding favour at Pink Frosting wedding shop, or using Mason Jars to hold your wedding bomboniere.  Here are a few ideas I adore.

Summer Picnic Wedding Inspiration

picnicwedding

The 2012/2013 Australian wedding seasons has kicked off and I am so excited to see a new and exciting set of colour palates and themes brides are trying out! One that has really caught my eye and I have fallen in love with is the idea of a Picnic Wedding. Summer is one of Australia’s most beautiful seasons and we love being outdoors! This charming, laid back and intimate theme has really taken off this wedding season and I have put together some inspiration and ideas on how to plan the prefect summer picnic wedding with some adorable and gorgeous extras from Pink Frosting.

Your invitations are the first part of the puzzle your guests see so why not make them special. Depending on your style there is a range of wedding invitations that suits the picnic theme, try these adorable Love Birds invitations in a range of different colours, or these fun and elegant Chalk Board invitations. If you’re going for a more vintage style picnic theme the Lace Invites in a range of colours will suit your wedding impeccably.

Wedding Invitation Ideas

With a picnic wedding your ceremony and reception are most likely going to be outdoors, which gives you the opportunity to use Mother Nature’s resources and adding a touch of style to them. You colour pallet for an outdoor picnic theme begins with crisp whites, fresh greens, lemon yellows, vibrant reds any colour that just screams out summertime! Walk down the aisle to a row of white lace parasols or hang large tissue paper pom poms along the chairs down the aisle for a garden-fresh summer feeling.  I love the feeling you get when there are lanterns and pom poms hanging whimsically through a tree! They make for such a gorgeous addition to the scenery of being outdoors.

When it comes to the table settings, this is where you can start having a lot of fun with how you want to design them! For your centrepieces give your table that real country chic picnic feeling and use these large wooden woven picnic baskets filled with flowers, home-made treats, fresh fruit vegetables and bread, the choices are endless with this, they can also double as your table numbers for guests to find.

PICNIC3

Continuing with your picnic outdoors wedding theme, send your guests home with wedding favours to match! I love the warmth these mini woven baskets give filled with scrumptious home-made cookies or anything that matches your picnic theme and they tie in perfectly with the centrepieces.

PICNICBASKET2

A picnic wedding benefits from the beauty of the outdoors, and with this the colours go to match, natural woods and leafy greens as well as red and white checks this country chic feeling will make for a cosy and memorable event.

Frangipani Wedding Decorations

Frangipani bouquet

Apart from the hibiscus, there’s perhaps no other flower that says beach wedding than gorgeous fragrant frangipanis.  Frangipanis or plumeria as they are also known are blooming everywhere along our beaches at the moment.  One of our iconic beach flowers, they make the perfect beach wedding decoration or flower motif for Australian weddings. 

frangipani-mosaic

Image credits: Frangipani wedding cake, photo by Nicole Pearce.  Frangipani bouquet and aisle decoration images from Lindsay Van Roy Photography for Brett and Erin’s wedding.  Frangipani beach aisle by Aloha Island Weddings at Simply Chic Wedding Ideas.  Frangipani link ring by Stasita New Zealand.  All stationery by Alannah Rose at Pink Frosting’s beach wedding shop.  All beach collection wedding accessories and decorations at Pink Frosting’s beach online wedding shop.

Here are our top tips for using frangipanis to theme your Australian beach wedding:

  • Bunch them closely.  Frangipanis in tight formation are simply chic.  Look at our gorgeous frangipani bouquet above – chic and gorgeous!
  • If you choose yellow frangipanis, your best colour choices for ribbons, accents, glassware, napery and decor is buttercup yellow, ivory, crisp white, black or sand.
  • Frangipanis work beautifully with massive blossoms such as fully blown roses, hibiscus or lillies.  We’re not fans of frangipanis and other waxy flowers such as orchids, but they can look lovely together if you use a master florist.
  • Generally, frangipanis don’t need foliage to complement them.  Think of the flower in its natural state – the flowers are clustered and the branches are fairly sparse.  Take your cue from the flower in its natural environment and don’t use leaves as part of your table decorations, aisle decorations or bouquets.
  • Frangipani leis are so easy to create.  It’s a fun way to spend your night before the wedding with your best girls – simply use fishing line and a large needle to thread frangipani blooms.  A beautiful favour for your guests.
  • Incorporate frangipanis into your wedding ceremony with large garlands of frangipani flowers laced together like a long leis.  Such a versatile idea – you can then loosely hang them between your chairs down your aisle or decorate a garden trelise with them behind the bride and groom.  Also, give your flowergirl frangipani flowers to toss when she walks down the aisle.
  • Create a heart using frangipani flowers for the bride and groom to stand in when they marry.  This simple but beautiful idea works a treat on the beach or on grass in a garden wedding.
  • For table decorations, choose faux frangipani flowers and either scatter your frangipanis loosely around the table, lay one on each table setting for a contemporary chic look, or use miniature beach buckets filled with starfish, sand and frangipanis (see the beautiful beach buckets by Pink Frosting above – we also used Swarovski crystal encrusted starfish to complement the yellow frangipanis).
  • You can incorporate frangipanis in your wedding theme in many ways.  Here are some other ideas:
    • Your wedding invitations – frangipanis on the beach or in a heart make a glamorous stationery idea.  Some gorgeous styles from Dream Day Wedding Invitations and Alannah Rose make a real statement;
    • Your wedding accessories – use frangipani flowers in your bridesmaid’s hair and in your groomsmen’s buttonholes;
    • Your parasols – choose a plain wedding parasol and glue on frangipanis around the centre and border to create a unique wedding day accessory for photographs
    • Your  wedding bombonieres and favours – choose a favour with a frangipani motif such as personalised candy jars (yummy filled with yellow jelly beans), flip flop candles with a frangipani toe; or a photo frame with a frangipani flower attached to the swing tag – gorgeous!

Here are some beautiful ways to use frangipanis on your wedding day:

Grey and Navy are the New Black in Weddings for 2011

Grey_Navy

Grey will be the neutral IT color for 2011 weddings. With not a rainy cloud in sight, shades of charcoal, dove, stone, oyster and shell will be incorporated into wedding colour palettes for 2011 and we just love how grey pairs beautifully with vibrant hues such as fuchsia pink, coral and teal.  

The other colour of choice for 2011 will be navy and other deep blues thanks to Prince William and Kate’s royal wedding.  Navy and all dark blue palettes complement the moody greys and also work harmoniously with white, ivory, champagne and little pops of colour.

Here are some of our favourite ways to incorporate these colour palettes into your wedding day in 2011 and beyond:

  • Navy and grey are generally darker accent colours, so choose a base colour for your wedding stationery, decorations and accessories such as ivory, white or champagne.  For example, with your wedding invitations, you might choose a white base and use a silvery grey printed text and a navy personalised ribbon as your accent colours;
  • As with your wedding stationery and accessories, for the bride and bridesmaid dresses, choose a white, ivory or champagne base and accessorise with a navy or grey accent.  The bride might use a navy blue sash with her dress, a bold shoe, or even a sapphire wedding ring inspired by Wills and Kate.  Bridesmaids dresses in navy and greys are a stunning complement to this look and for the men, incorporate the colour palette through their ties, cumberbunds and handkerchiefs;
  • Navy and grey won’t necessarily be the best main colour for your wedding cake!  Again, they make a beautiful accent with printed motifs and designs in navy or grey against the main neutral colour of ivory, white or champagne.  Two easy ways to bring colour to a neutral or simple wedding cake is with a coloured ribbon, which can be personalised for extra oomph or through a beautiful wedding cake topper.  Australia’s number one wedding shop, Pink Frosting offers both personalised ribbons and wedding cake toppers in many colours, themes and designs;
  • Greys and blues can be hard to find in flowers, although hydrangeas strike a beautiful blue and grey hue.  You might choose white lilies or ivory roses as a base, and have your navy and grey colour scheme pop through the ribbons tying the bouquets together.  Big bows in satin make a stunning statement in your chosen colour and look lovely when draped down over a simple gown.
  • For your table decorations, again use ivory, white or champagne as your base for chair covers, table cloths, and draping and accent in your colours of choice.  Navy and silver look beautiful as satin sashes against white on your reception chairs, you can incorporate a slash of colour through your table runners in navy or silvery grey and you might like to tie a big bow in satin ribbon in navy blue and silver grey around your table centrepieces and vases to tie in your colours.  Australia’s number one wedding decoration supplier, Pink Frosting, offers some beautiful wedding decorations in these colours.
  • Silver or chrome bomboniere can be found in abundance and makes a statement about your sophistication as a bride and groom.  Many of the options for silver favours can include a navy accent such as silver miniature photo frames with an attached personalised navy tag or silver bomboniere almonds encased in a navy organza bag.
Happy Celebrating!

Coral Reef Wedding Inspiration

1070-20

With Australia’s vast coastlines and beautiful coral reefs, reef coral makes a beautiful theme for a destination or beach wedding. Coral is precious because of the time is takes to grow – once it has matured it can endure even the fiercest storms and is an irreplaceable component of life beneath the sea. It is a beautiful reminder that love also takes time to grow, and as long as you take care of it the end result is incredible – and well worth the wait.

The new collection of wedding stationery at Pink Frosting in a reef coral design is the perfect way to bring this theme to life.  I am completely in love with the design which I think reflects the nature of Australian destination weddings perfectly.

Here are some gorgeous ways to incorporate coral into your wedding day.

Royal Wedding Fever Reflects in Wedding Trends for 2011

Royal Wedding Decorations

Like it or loathe it (and we love it) Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal nuptials on April 29 next year are set to reflect in weddings around the world for the next couple of years, with “fairytale bling” being the decorating style of choice.   And, the English royal wedding will create princess fever that won’t die down for some time yet!

The style we’re predicting is anything that glitters and is monogrammed will be the chic message for 2011 and 2012 brides.  The royal wedding itself will no doubt be very respectful of the traditions and customs of the royal family, but the every day take on the style of fairytale wedding will be very glittery with lots of sparkling wedding decorations and crystal and all stationery, decorations and wedding bomboniere monogrammed with the couple’s details to create a truly unique look.

Fit for a princess are dazzling acrylic diamonds, mirror bases on tables and crystal garlands dripping from high reception table centrepieces.  Wedding invitations will feature embossed monograms and gold or platinum foiled personally-created motifs.

Brides inspired by the royal wedding can style their wedding favours along the same lines by reaching for Antique Acrylic Place Card Frames, a diamond like place card frame which doubles as both a place card on table settings for wedding receptions as well as beautiful miniature photo frames for your guests to take home and Crystal Diamond Shaped Tea Light Holders which cast a twinkling glow on wedding table settings as well as make a beautiful wedding bomboniere for guests.

We hope you are truly inspired to create your own fairytale on your wedding day!

Wedding Favour Trends for 2011

9079

Many brides and grooms are planning their 2011 wedding celebrations now, and they want to know what the scoop is on the latest ideas for 2011 wedding favours and bomboniere.  The team at Australia’s number one online wedding store, Pink Frosting, lets you in on a little secret:  here are the trends in wedding favours for 2011!

The Big Trends

The big trend for 2011 will be anything inspired by royalty!  With Kate Middleton and Prince William tying the knot in April 2011, we’re predicting that anything that glitters will be the chic message for our 2011 brides.  The other trends for 2011 are eco-friendly favours, personalised favours, favours that double as table decorations and home-made of home-inspired wedding favours.  As with weddings in general, we’re seeing a trend towards the personalisation of the big day – a more unique approach to weddings that reflects the personality of the bride and groom and all of those that they love.

Royal Wedding Favours that Glitter

EB1092_large

With the royal wedding in the first half of 2011, one of the key wedding trends will be everything that is royal and anything that glitters!  Fit for a princess are dazzling acrylic diamonds, mirror bases on tables and crystal garlands dripping from high reception table centrepieces.  To style your wedding favours along the same lines, reach for the Antique Acrylic Place Card Frame, a diamond like place card frame which doubles as both a place card on your table settings for your wedding reception as well as beautiful miniature photo frames for your guests to take home, Crystal Diamond Shaped Tea Light Holders which cast a twinkling glow on wedding table settings as well as make a beautiful wedding bomboniere for your guests, and Diamond Ring Bottle Stoppers with a glistening engagement ring top make a very chic wedding bomboniere for guests. 

Edible Wedding Favour Trends

EB2131M_large1

Every guest loves a wedding candy or chocolate treat – it’s a very easy way to please your guests.  The big trend from 2010 which continues into 2011 is the Candy Buffet or lolly table, where guests can choose from a variety of candies and desserts to place in a themed bag to take home as their wedding bomboniere.  This fun trend is getting more serious and in itself has become one of the key decorations for the wedding reception. 

Home made edible wedding favours are also a key trend for 2011.  Couples may have a favourite recipe that they bottle and give to guests.  We have seen lovely home-made favours such as jams, home-farmed honey, cookies and other delicious baked treats.

Personalised candy is also a big trend for 2011.  There are many ways to make your wedding chocolates or wedding candy unique to you – personalised rock candy with your names and wedding colours, personalised labels on fun wedding lollipops are a huge hit and wedding chocolates wrapped in a personalised wrapper will make guests very happy indeed!

Trends in Beach Wedding Favours

EB2121GRN_large

If you’re hosting your wedding at the beach, the trends in beach wedding favours and bomboniere are to use beach and nautical themed favours as part of your table decorations.  Some of the favourites include the Adirondack Deck Chair Tealight Candles and Place Card Holder Wedding Favours which evoke a seaside feeling and also serve as place card or photo holders and provide a decorative touch as well as romantic lighting to a beache wedding reception, and the Castles in the Sand Tealight Candle which serves the dual purpose of being a softly romantic candle on wedding reception tables and also a sweet take-home favour for guests.

One of the big trends for 2011 beach weddings will be hand fan wedding favours to give to every guest during the wedding ceremony.  There are so many designs and colours to choose from, but the most popular are the Timber Hand Fan Favours and the White Paper Hand Fans, which match most beach wedding themes.

Australian bides know that the heat on the beach can be oppressive for their guests – sometimes year round in many Aussie locations.  For both practical purposes and because they look so beautiful in photographs, handing a wedding parasol to every guest at the ceremony and as their wedding favour is a practical and very appreciated wedding favour.

DIY Wedding Favour Trends

EB2150T_large1

Do it yourself and craft it yourself really is the theme of the moment in weddings.  We love that brides are embracing homespun traditions and their childhood loves and are hosting weddings where they play a critical role in every part of the day – from crafting the table centrepieces and bridal bouquet to asking their favourite aunt to embroider the table runners with their monogram.  Creating a personalised and home-spun wedding favour is fun – gather your bridesmaids around and make something dear to your heart to give to guests who will really appreciate the gesture.

Some of the latest arrivals for 2011 DIY favours include Heart Jewels in Diamond Clear which are diamond shaped embellishments which also make lovely table scatters for wedding reception tables, in the bathrooms and around the wedding cake.  Do it yourself brides love the Customised Bomboniere Rock Candy as it means they have a base for their wedding favours.  They can then take their personalised lollies and wrap them in cello and tie with a personalised ribbon, encase the candy in an organza bag or pop into a homemade wedding favour box.

For home made jams, lollies and other treats, Flip Top Personalised Mini Candy Jars give you a great presentation that suits the style and colour of the wedding with a personalised label.  choose

Many DIY brides are opting for cupcake favours for their guests, and the love that goes into making a cupcake makes this treat even more special.  The laser cut cupcake wrappers, cupcake boxes and cupcake decorations at Pink Frosting make giving a cupcake favour even more lovely!

Eco-Friendly Wedding Favours

9072

Couples that have a heart for the environment have many options for eco-friendly wedding favours in 2011.  One of our favourites is to make a donation to the couple’s favourite charity.  One of the key trends in 2011 will also be to give a plant, seeds or flower bulbs to guests.  We also adore the new eco friendly tote favour bags bearing a message of a greener earth and a protected environment.  Some of the other key trends are wedding favours using recycled materials and home-made favours that re-use materials from the home.

Where to Shop for Wedding Favours in 2011

No matter whether you spell it wedding favours, wedding bomboniere, bonbonniere, bombonieres or favors, at Australia’s wedding shop Pink Frosting, our mission is to bring Australian brides a unique selection of wedding bomboniere and wedding favours for your wedding day to purchase online, for delivery anywhere in Australia.  No fuss, perfect wedding bomboniere boxes, wedding favour tags, bomboniere ideas, personalised wedding bomboniere and wedding favours and unique ideas for wedding favours every single time!
