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.
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:
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
