We are gearing up for spring weddings and we are often asked for something (anything!) in chocolate.
One of our favorite wedding ideas is to create a chocolate shop, as a sweet and memorable touch to end the event.
We suggest setting up trays with the bride and grooms favorite truffle flavors, offering no less then 6 flavors -to ensure there is something for everyone! Each truffle should have it’s own tray, labeled with a card in front (as you would see in a chocolate shop). Of course you can go with the traditional truffle names – or create fun truffle names from the wedding theme, the bride and groom’s favorite things, etc. Remember to get a great selection – of milk and dark chocolate truffles…we also like to include at least one white truffle. Try to shop local, for handmade fresh truffles where the chocolatier uses local ingredients. *
The boxes, the bags – the memory of your wedding! Personalized and reflective of the bride and groom – the boxes/bags should be at one side of the table. Each guest gets a box – and then selects their 2-3 or 4 truffles to take home. The box/bag should be personalized either embossed, with a sticker – or a ribbon to remember the fun evening. Another great idea is to have a card, with the ribbon going through it, with a little thank you and the date of your wedding. As for the boxes, there are se many beautiful boxes out there – or you can create your own!
* Note: For winter weddings we also like to suggest creating s’mores or hot chocolate packages.
Have fun! Be creative – and with fresh truffles – it is sure to be a memorable finish!
