As wedding budgets get squeezed with the global financial crisis hitting everyone’s back pockets, there are some nifty ways to save money on wedding day must-haves such as wedding bomboniere and favours.

Author of The Party Book and founder of Australia's leading online wedding shop http://www.pinkfrosting.com.au, Kathryn Porritt says she is a big advocate of finding tricks to save brides and grooms money by being innovative.

Kathryn advises couples to make as many items as possible for their wedding do double duty as she says it saves money and time.

One of the main areas that couples are finding is stretching them is their wedding bomboniere. Favours or bomboniere are the little gifts brides and grooms give their guests as a token of their gratitude for sharing their wedding day; and many cultures have specific traditions that are followed with giving favours such as sugared almonds wrapped in tulle or wheat and coins to symbolise fertility and wealth for the couple.

Kathryn's tips for saving money on wedding bomboniere are:

  •     Make wedding bomboniere part of the budget and planning from the beginning.
  •     Mini photo frames will delight guests and double duty as a place card holder for decorations. She suggests taking a small photo frame and using it as a place card to let guests know where they are seated and simply add a little tag or table card that lets guests know to bring this home with them at the end of the reception as their wedding bomboniere.
  •     She says DIY wedding bomboniere is a great way to save money and get creative. Brides and grooms can make a meaningful wedding favour that guests will adore - think homemade cookies, pretty hand stitched handkerchiefs, or jars of home made jams.
  •     Candy buffets are a fun way to let guests enjoy their inner child, says Kathryn. To make their own candy buffet, she suggests couples purchase apothecary jars and candy jars in many shapes and sizes, candy scoops and tongs and lots of delicious wedding candy and lollies to fill them, and fun favour bags which can be personalised and styled to suit the wedding theme, then let guests fill their bags and take home their booty.
  •     Just about everyone loves chocolate and one way to save is with edible wedding bomboniere. Kathryn suggests that delicious wedding chocolates and personalised wedding candy is a yummy way to say thanks and won't break the budget.
  •     Kathryn's big tip is to shop online for the best bargains and ideas. Wedding favours are one of those wedding must-haves that aren't available in everyday shops, so it's a great chance for couples to indulge their love of online bargain hunting and search online for great budget wedding favours and unique wedding bomboniere ideas.

Kathryn says her big non-budget tip is, "When it comes to giving wedding bomboniere, make sure your selection comes from the heart. Your wedding favours are meant to be a token of your gratitude to your guests for sharing your wedding day, so giving a gift that is meaningful to you as the bride and groom is paramount in your decision making process."
