Should you use bulk lollies for your wedding bonbonniere?

Sugared almonds. Scented candles. Bookmarks. Mini alcohol bottles.

These are some of the “traditional” ideas for wedding favours (wedding bonbonnieres, if you want to be fancy). They’re also super overdone!

Let’s face it, you want your wedding to be unique. That extends to all facets of your upcoming reception, including often-overlooked decisions like what types of wedding favours you’re going to offer.

The problem is that a lot of the more creative ideas also happen to be crazy expensive!

Luckily, there are other options out there that let you offer a unique wedding bonbonniere… without breaking the bank in the process.

One of which is our online lolly shop

Why lollies, though?

Simple: it’s unique!

Think about it: when was the last time you went to a wedding reception as a guest and at the centre of the table were lollies?


Wedding lollies are a unique way of bringing sweetness into your wedding. Nuts, flowers, candles… they’ve all been done a hundred times before.

Lollies, on the other hand? That’s new!

They’re plain old fun

If you’re looking for a unique type of wedding favour, you can’t go past lollies. Not only are they unique, but using lollies is also plain fun, end of story.

They’re sweet. They’re colourful. And most importantly, nobody can resist them.

All of which make them the perfect candidates for lolly buffet!

There won’t be any left over

Wedding favours are meant to be taken. If they’re left on the tables long after the guests have departed, it can leave you feeling a little deflated.

You won’t have to worry about this if you choose lollies for your wedding favours.

Everyone loves lollies. If you choose to place wedding lollies at the centre of each of your tables, you can be confident that they’ll be gone by the end of the night.

On the one hand, this means you won’t be able to take the leftovers home with you once the wedding’s over. Look on the bright side, though: it also means that they were a smash hit!

The best types of wedding lollies

We can’t tell you what’s best for your wedding – a lot of it simply comes down to what you’re planning, as well as you and your spouse want.

After all, it’s your wedding!

As a general rule however, there are a couple of things you’ll want to keep in mind if you’re thinking about using bulk lollies for your wedding bonbonniere…


A lot of couples are choosing to break from the traditional wedding theme, instead opting for unique themes that better reflect their unique relationship.

No matter what theme you and your fiance choose, it’s crucial that you keep it in mind when buying bulk lollies online!

Choose colours, flavours and lolly types that are consistent with your wedding theming. For example:

  • Going for a more romantic atmosphere? Dark chocolate is your friend
  • Want a vintage wedding? Rock candy is a great (and nostalgic!) choice
  • Decided on a boho wedding? Go wild with the colours and flavours

Whatever you choose, just make sure it fits!


Are your lollies going to pop up in a little basket? Or perhaps a high tea arrangement? Whatever you choose, it’ll factor into your choice of wedding lollies.

Say you go for the high tea setup. In this case, you’ll want lollies that are compact enough to fit on a high tea treaty. That knocks out fairy floss or lollipops – instead, you may be better off with bite-sized lollies like a traditional party mix.

Can lollies be used to complement your other wedding favours?

You don’t have to go for lollies by themselves for your wedding bonbonniere.

In fact, we 100% understand if you don’t – lollies, while sweet, can also feel a little bit too simple if they’re the only wedding favours on offer.

Luckily, they don’t have to be alone.

One alternative idea that’s gaining traction as an alternative wedding favour is engraved wine glasses. You’d think that this would go well with wine or liquor – the problem however is that both of these suggestions are, shall we say, pricey.

Lollies are affordable. Not to mention, they come with all the advantages we talked about above – why not fill up your wine glasses with lollies like Allen’s Snakes Alive?

And that’s just one way you can use lollies to complement your other wedding favours!

Lolly bags

When you hear the word “lolly bag”, what comes to mind? If you’re like most, you probably think of kid’s birthday parties.

While this is what lolly bags are most known for, by no means is that the only way lolly bags can be used – if you ask us, they can be used for a whole range of different applications!

One of these is wedding favours!

Custom-printed lolly bags

At MyLollies, we don’t just supply the lollies – if needed, we can also bag them for you.

Most of the time, our custom lolly bags are used for promotional purposes. Companies and brands ask us to create lolly bags with their logos digitally printed onto the front.

However, that isn’t the only way our custom lolly bags can be used!

Our digital printing abilities are impressive – we can do full colours, allowing you to put whatever you want on the front of your wedding lolly bags.

We can even include a variable text field, allowing you to customise what each individual lolly bag says. Remember those custom-printed Coke bottles? We can do that, except with your lollies.

Bulk lollies for lolly bags

No need to spend hours filling out, tying and organising lolly bags. Our online lolly shop does it all in-house, saving you time!

Not to mention, we also save money too – go the DIY route, and in addition to the cost of buying the lollies in bulk, you’ll also have to buy the bags and something to seal them with.

Since we operate in bulk however, we’re able to reduce the cost even further, helping you save a considerable amount of money too.
