Give your Bomboniere the DIY Touch!



Seta Marrone - Chocolate Brown Favour Boxes
In the ever-evolving effort to personalise your wedding, sometimes do-it-yourself (DIY) wedding bomboniere and other wedding accessories are the best option for a truly unique wedding. They are also a great option for cutting costs while still creating a memorable event. With a little creativity, DIY favours can add the bride and groom’s personal style to the wedding day and give guests a little piece of that special day to take home.

While wedding favours are often added as a complement to an already developed wedding theme, they can also be a great starting point for designing a wedding theme that’s truly all your own. 

Mini Treasure Chest

Maybe the bride and groom really want a wedding theme that most would consider daring, like a “Pirate/Love on the High Seas” theme. A great DIY wedding favour idea is to get mini treasure chests and fill them with treats that look like treasure.

Contemporary "Heart Strings" Playing Cards

If you do not yet have a theme, but know that you love the idea of having favours with your favourite inspirational quote on it, consider something that your guests will use and read often. Remember that almost anything can be personalised, so whether it’s a deck of cards, a magnet, or a set of coasters, a little time and effort can transform anything.

Another DIY wedding favour idea that is both fun and cost effective is to bake your own goodies. Throw a little cooking get-together the week before the wedding and invite a group of friends and family-members who love baking. Typically you will be surrounded with people willing to help, so don’t be afraid to accept it. The only other thing you will need, other than the baking goods, is several packs of wedding favour containers. End the baking party with an assembly line for packing and sealing the favours, followed by decorating the favour containers to match the rest of your wedding accessories.
Personalised Ribbon

You may even want to personalise your wedding accessories and favours with the couple’s monogram and wedding date. This is a very easy DIY project that can be conquered in little time. Simply choose the personalised stickers, tags, or satin ribbon that matches your wedding theme, and add them to your wedding favours for a special and stylish touch

Always remember that there is no right or wrong way to personalise your wedding. There are literally thousands of DIY wedding accessories and favours to choose from, and with the many ways to personalise them the possibilities for a unique wedding are truly endless.
