Chocolate Favors

What would your wedding be without your friends and family present to share in your happiness? Favors are your opportunity to express your gratitude to them for participating in the celebration, and chocolate is a perfect way to do that. Traditionally connected with love and romance, chocolate is an edible gift that will provide your guests with a sweet memory.

Chocolate favor options encompass a wider range than you'd think. Four-piece boxes provide guests with a variety of flavors without being overwhelming. Find boxes and ribbon to compliment your wedding colors, add a personalized tag, and you have a gourmet treat specially suited to your Big Day.

Looking for something outside the box, literally and figuratively? Chocolate comes in all shapes, not just Easter bunnies. Couples looking to add some whimsy to their reception can opt for a molded chocolate that reflects their unique wedding theme, symbolizes their relationship, or simply something that will be a conversation piece for their guests.

Chocolate can also be a compliment to another favor. Many couples these days opt to donate to a charity in their guests' names. Give them a piece of molded chocolate that symbolizes your charity and make your act of generosity more memorable. For instance, a pink ribbon made of chocolate can be paired with a donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, or a chocolate dog can represent a donation to the Humane Society.

Many guests travel long distances to be present for your special day. Why not make their journey a little more comfortable with an amenity basket or bag? Ours feature chocolate covered pretzels, nonpareils, drinks, fresh fruit, and a granola bar to snack on. Filling your amenity bags with unique products from local stores is a great way to welcome guests both to your wedding and to the town they'll be staying in.

As you would with your reception menu, it's wise to keep guests' allergies and dietary restrictions in mind when choosing chocolate favors. Keep the lines of communication clear, both with your guests and your chocolatier. Many people are concerned about choosing milk chocolate versus dark. Dark chocolate is becoming more popular due to being rich in heart-healthy antioxidants, but bear in mind not everyone has a taste for bittersweet: children by and large prefer milk chocolate over dark.

Memories are created by our senses, what we see, hear, touch, taste, and smell. Why not have the memory of your wedding linked to the sweetness of gourmet chocolate?
