Bomboniere for your Melbourne wedding

Bomboniere is Italian for ‘favour’ and is a small gift given to the guests after the conclusion of special occasions such as weddings. The bomboniere is traditionally made from sugared almonds depending on the occasion.

Customarily for weddings, the Bomboniere normally consists of five white sugared almonds to symbolize wealth, happiness, health, fertility and long life.

For other occasions, other colours are generally used.

The sugared almonds are put into an organza bag for example an tied with coloured ribbon to match the wedding theme. Other containers or glass jars can be used also.

You are only limited by your own imagination when making your own wedding Bomboniere. Other sweet treats can be used to suit your own style and either way, it is generally a lovely thank you gesture.

You can get your Bomboniere pre made by a supplier or alternatively, you can have a fun time making your own and adding personal touches.
