Can You Make Your Own Wedding Bomboniere?
Yes, you can absolutely make your own beautiful, simple and affordable wedding bomboniere. In this post you will find some bomboniere ideas to help you make your own.
There are ready made bomboniere boxes available for this purpose. You can buy these in a variety of colours and sizes from wedding bomboniere suppliers.
Other than the boxes you can also use cellophane bags or cut up pieces of clear cellophane squares (or circles). Place your gift inside and then tie it with a ribbon. It is easy to co-ordinate your bomboniere with your wedding theme and colours by using a ribbon in your wedding theme colours.
Be sure to match your wedding bomboniere colours with the rest of your table settings to ensure that your reception area looks co-ordinated and well styled.
Fabrics such as organza or tulle can also be used the same way as cellophane. If you like the idea of using organza then you can also purchase organza bags from bomboniere suppliers. They also come in many different shapes, colors and sizes.
Depending on the type of bomboniere you are using you may even like to use tissue paper or fancy wrapping paper to wrap your gifts in.
Some items such as lollypops may only need a ribbon around them.
If you love crafts and being creative you can make small gift tags with your guest names on them. Attach the gift tags to the bomboniere with ribbon or stick them directly onto the bomboniere boxes using double-sided tape.
Depending on your wedding theme you can also attach a flower (lavender sprig or rosebud) to your bomboniere. In place of ribbon you can also use raffia.
