Bonbonnieres, wedding favours, whatever you like to call them… this list will help you come up with the perfect idea and where to source them.
The tradition is said to have originated from Italy, where 5 sugared almonds were given to represent 5 wishes for the bride and groom: health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity.
In recent times, couples have injected a bit of fun, creativity and personality into the tradition, and now almost anything can be a wedding favour – from chocolates to salt and pepper shakers, to potted plants!
There are so many fresh ideas, online stores, and small businesses that cater to those who want fun wedding favours, which guests will love and appreciate. Here are some of our favourites.
Etsy is a brilliant starting point to find the perfect idea for wedding favours. There are so many vendors who have done this all before.

There are so many personalised options too, like lollipops, succulents, tea, glasses, salt, Nutella jars, key rings, confetti and so much more!
