what a brain buster choosing the right bomboniere/favour can
be. By the way, Bombonieri is a term used by many European cultures
and has become a pretty mainstream "wedding" word
that means the same as Favour. Why spend big money on something
that probably won't be used. Now, it's not law that you have
to give favours, it's just a nice way of thanking your guests
for coming. It's not necessary that your favour be a souvenir
that lasts forever. For example, if you are using potted plants
to decorate your venue, buy a few extras so that your guests
can take them home. You could attach a small thank you card
to each plant beforehand.
Do us a
small favour and go to a "dollar store" first, just
to see if something catches your eye. If you are having a themed
wedding, it's an added touch if the Bombonieri matchs your theme
or if the wrapping matches your wedding colours. Here's a list
of some ideas, with more to come.
the suggestions below can be used for both showers and weddings.
You can give one favour per guest or per family. You can give
more then one favour. You can monogram it or leave it generic.
You can make it or buy it. Have the company wrap, tag and decorate
it or you can do it.
Because of liquor by-laws, ask your reception venue if you can
give wine or other alcohol as favours/bomboniere. Some allow
it and some don't.
