DIY bomboniere boxes are a great way to add a splash of personality to your wedding and save money! While bombonieres are typically small tokens that a couple give wedding guests to show their appreciation and affection, bombonieres and the box it’s displayed in come in a variety of styles and designs to suit different price ranges.
Different Types of DIY Bomboniere Boxes
A traditional favourite that’s still extremely popular, standard cubed DIY bomboniere boxes come in a plethora of sizes to fit a selection of different gifts. Including a separate lid that either lifts off entirely or just flips open, these two-piece boxes are usually available in white cardstock which makes a great canvas for your DIY design elements or in clear PVC if you prefer to let your guests see what’s inside immediately.
While the standard shape is popular, there are other types of DIY bomboniere boxes that have been crafted to suit unique wedding styles. Pillow bomboniere boxes are a cute way to package something light like a scarf or personalised candy and have openings at both ends that need to be squeezed gently to reveal the favour inside. Unique DIY box designs resembling take-out boxes in heavy cardstock have also become trendy in the wedding circuit and are used to package anything from fortune cookies to jars of homemade jam.
When adding embellishments and decorating your DIY bomboniere boxes keep your wedding theme in mind for a streamlined look that’s simple without being overcrowded. Experiment with unusual design elements like leaves for an autumn wedding or exquisite embellishments such as brooches, starfish clusters, buckles, buttons, sequins, glitter and pearls that suit a variety of wedding themes. Fabric swatches, lace bands and ribbons are fabulous elements to weave into your DIY design concept for an exquisite touch of elegance!

DIY Bomboniere Ideas
While personalised chocolate bars and sugared almonds are popular alternatives, they’re quite boring and standard! Give your guests something personal that’s more likely to be treasured than popped into the bin such as the dry ingredients for two cookies in a bomboniere box accompanied with a handwritten copy of your all time favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe or any other family recipe.
A bomboniere buffet is a trendy option that lets you cut costs by displaying both cost-friendly items with a few lavish options that guests can help themselves to before leaving the wedding.
