Bomboniere are favors for Weddings, Baby Showers, Baptisms, holy Communion or Anniversaries.

Bomboniere is an Italian and Greek tradition, which is spreading across the world. Bomboniere are the traditional keepsakes given as gifts to guests in appreciation of their attendance. They can also be incorporated on the table settings or distributed from a decorated basket or in a candy bar. While their most popular use is at weddings and christenings, they can also be given at First Communions, Birthdays, Silver/Gold Anniversaries, Dinner Parties, Christmas and many other social gatherings. Each bomboniera has  at least 5 sugar almonds called “confetti” which represent: Health, Wealth, Happiness, Prosperity and Long Life.


Wedding Favors

Giving a favor is a joyful gesture, expressive of your gratitude and happiness for your guest’s presence on this special occasion. The best wedding favors are exercises in elegant simplicity, beautiful things that are not too taxing to plan, make, or fit into the budget. They are among the wedding's most appealing elements and one of the easiest to personalize. Alomost anything can be a favor, as long as it is pleasing, portable, and available in multiples.

What To Give

If you have chosen a theme for your wedding, you can carry it through to your favors as well. You might give a small bottle of the local oil or the local liquor with a label with your names. Also a typical manufactured product such as a small ceramic (for example a wine stopper, a cup..) can be a nice favour and easy to transport on the plane.

Their meaning

Wedding favors can also be symbolic. Consider the meanings of various items when looking for ideas.

Rosemary is one of the favourite ingredient to use in favors because of its fitting history. Shakespeare once wrote, "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray you, love, remember".

Your guests will recall your wedding day fondly whenever they use little jars of sea salt flavoured with the fragrant herb and sealed with a sticker bearing your monogram and the wedding date, or small bottles of rosemary-infused olive oil.


Instead of tangible favors, some couples chose to make donation in honor of their guests to a favourite charity. An elegantly printed card or scroll can convey your gift to your guests.

Children’s favour

For kids would be nice for example at each child's seat leave a small pouch filled with paper dominoes or playing cards, fancy paper to doodle on, lollies and coloured pencils to keep them entertained. If you've invited only a few children, you can personalize canvas tote bags to hold their goodies by cutting out felt letters and hand-sewing them to the bags.


Favors that include candy or other perishables should be prepared shortly before your wedding so they stay fresh, but all other favors can be assembled and wrapped well in advance.

Bags are a great way to package small favors, and they provide a convenient way for guests to carry their goods home. Little bags are available at craft stores in translucent glassine and in just about any color you can imagine. Fill them both with candy or cookies, fold the tops over, and punch two holes in the cuffs. Handmade bags of wool, felt, or velvet will take a bit more time and effort on your part but can be made in advance and are bound to be reused.

Functional Favors

With a little creativity, your favors and seating cards can work as one. Place small favors, such as tiny soaps or hard candies, in boxes, and wrap them in decorative papers. Print guests' names and table assignments onto white adhesive-backed paper, cut out, and affix to the top of each box. Arrange the favors on a table in alphabetical order, so that guests can easily find their names, along with their charming little gift. 

As an alternative, you can incorporate the favors into your table settings. A diminutive favor in a pretty box or bag can greet guests as they sit down to dinner.
