Create chocolate wedding favours with your own personal message
Favours – what to pick
A wedding favour is a custom which dates back many centuries and is traditionally a way for the bride and groom to show gratitude to their guests.
Originally a sugar lump or other piece of delicate confectionary, wedding favours have often been associated with an edible piece of deliciousness for the guest to savour.
Sugar lumps are not quite the luxury nowadays than they were back in the 13th century so it takes a bit more imagination to think of something which oozes sophistication but it still quite fun.
Although you could give out any kind of sweet, chocolate is a class above and offers the opportunity to not just enjoy a scrumptious goodie, but also a way of providing your guests with a personalised keepsake of the day.
It’s not just what’s inside that counts
Whilst having a little mouthful of creamy chocolate is likely to go down well with your guests, it’s not just the contents that will hit the spot.
The wrappers on most standard chocolate bars are less than inspiring but wedding favours offer a range of designs cleverly created to match your big day. Whether you want champagne glasses clinking, a quirky cartoon groom and bride or even an Indian inspired design, you can pick the perfect wrapper to complement the theme you have picked.
And what’s really great is that not only will you get a pretty package, you can also add a personalised message. With the option to add words to both the front and back, you can capture your names and the date plus include a personal note to your guests.
This option is perfect if you don’t have time to create your own bespoke wedding favour completely; just pick from the range of wedding chocolate bar designs available and add your own words. Simple!
Create your own
If however, you like the idea of having a personalised chocolate wrapper but want to take things even further, you might want to consider a fully bespoke chocolate wedding favour.
With this option, not only can you add your own personalised message to the front and back, you can also design the entire wrapper.
Perhaps you want a photograph on your wedding favour, or maybe a picture that you particularly love. If you are feeling especially artistic, you might even want to add your own drawing or artwork!
All you need to do is provide an electronic image – usually a jpeg file – of good quality and you could see your creation come to life.
If you are designing your big day down to the very last detail, having such a personal wedding favour for your guests will really make it an extra-special occasion. Once they have eaten the chocolate, they can keep the wrapper as a memento of the day!
