10 Most Popular Colours for Wedding Confectionery in Australia
If you are one of the 115,000+ couples who will be getting married in Australia this year the chances are you will have a lot of key decisions to make about your wedding. Not least in relation to the colours for wedding confectionery you will use for your bombonieres, lolly buffet or table decorations.
Modern Wedding Bombonieres are intended as small gestures of appreciation. A ‘thank you’ to guests for sharing your special day. They are also designed to be mementos that they can keep to remember the occasion in years to come. So it is important to choose a colour that suits the overall theme you have chosen.
The concept of bombonieres is thought to have originated in France some 300 years ago. People started to give a small box of sweets to guests at various celebrations. Over time the idea spread across Europe and became especially popular in Italy and Greece. Where the custom of giving 5 white sugared almonds to represent health, wealth, happiness, long life and fertility in a satin bag, gradually became a tradition.
Over time, mainly through immigration the practice arrived in Australia. Typically the sugar-coated almonds were wrapped in tulle and attached to a small gift for each guest or couple, such as photo frame or a small vase. However these days bombonieres have evolved to the point that they are more stand alone and most usually added to the table design. The content is also no longer exclusive to sugared almonds. Infact these days a wide variety of different types of confectionery products are used.
Below is a list of the 10 Most Popular Colours For Wedding Confectionery In Australia. All of these colours are available as Jelly Bellys and Foiled Chocolate Hearts. However this list concentrates on other types of confectionery.

Although black is a popular colour for wedding themes in confectionery terms it is quite limiting. It also has the added disadvantage of being predominantly aniseed or licorice in flavour which might put a lot of guests off.
