Everyone love chocolate wedding favours and it’s no wonder. Chocolate has that universal appeal and there are so many different wedding favour options available there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets. These six reasons will highlight why chocolate wedding favours might be the best choice for your wedding:
When you eat chocolate it triggers the release of endorphins – so-called happy hormones – in the brain. Providing your friends and family with a chocolate gift means you’ll have happier guests ready to get up and dance!
The question over whether women prefer sex or chocolate may never be answered, but the fact is that most people adore good chocolate, even if only in small quantities. Although some may turn down mints, sugared almonds, jelly sweets, or other candies, it’s hard to say no to a couple of chocolates, particularly when coffee is served after the meal.
Look out for chocolate lolly pops, individual wrapped truffles, or unique wedding chocolate bars with personalised wrappers. Melted milk, white, and dark chocolate can also be turned into novelty shaped items such as tiny wedding cakes or lucky horseshoes. On top of this, chocolate can be used to bake brownies or chocolate wedding cupcakes.
Chocolate can be presented as a sophisticated present, or made into a quirky novelty treat. It doesn’t matter if you’re organising an informal garden reception, a twenties themed wedding, or a formal do at a posh hotel, there will be a type of chocolate favour that works with the style of your wedding.
A few tasty truffles or pretty pralines in a cute gift box won’t cost a fortune but will be a mouth-watering addition to your dining tables. Chocolate wedding favours are an affordable yet elegant gift.
Finally, as well as the usual milk, dark, and white chocolates, you can choose different flavours to make your chocolate favours unique. Try caramel, champagne, orange, strawberry, mint, raspberry, nougat, or coffee flavours. For children how about popping candy chocolate?
Even for the most determined chocaholic there are some reasons to think twice about chocolate wedding favours. Food intolerances and allergies seem to be more common, and if you are having chocolate favours you will need to be know if anyone is intolerant to dairy or allergic to nuts. If the chocolate is going to be taken out of its original wrapper, ensure you have a list of ingredients available at the reception.
If you are getting married in mid summer, or organising an outdoor wedding reception, chocolate wedding favours may not be your best option as there is a high likelihood they will melt before your guests can take them home. Eliminate this problem by keeping them refrigerated and handing them out as your guests leave in the evening.
