Choosing Chocolate Wedding 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 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. Here at Enjou Chocolat, the most popular choice for wedding favors is our 4-piece colored boxes. Couples choose from our wide variety of assorted chocolates and truffles, as well as box and bow in their wedding colors. Add a personalized tag, and we’ve provided you with 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. Enjou Chocolat has over 50,000 molds, ranging from a miniature wedding cake that fits in the palm of your hand to a 3 foot tall, 15 pound champagne bottle that can be used as part of the dessert table. 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; letting them know with molded chocolate that symbolizes your charity makes 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 featuring chocolate covered pretzels, nonpareils, drinks, fresh fruit, and a granola bar to snack on? Brides in northern New Jersey get their amenity bags from Enjou Chocolat in order to provide their guests with a gourmet treat from a local business. 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. At Enjou Chocolat, we have chocolate suited for kosher, vegan, and gluten-free diets. 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?
