9 Custom Chocolate Wedding Trends with the Chocolate Therapist on Holly’s hot wedding tips.
Wedding favors are always delightful, and chocolate wedding favors are even better. Who doesn’t like chocolate? So I met with Julie Pech from the Chocolate therapist. Not only does she have delightful chocolates, she is the author of the book,” The Chocolate Therapist, A users guide to the extraordinary health benefits of chocolate.” She and I talked about ways to share custom chocolates at your wedding.
Custom Chocolate wedding trends:
- Design your chocolates to perfectly match your theme. Like s’mores for an outdoorsy wedding with two gram crackers, twoof our chocolate bars, four little marshmallows in between and tied them in this really cool bag with a wedding bows to tie into the theme of the wedding
- Pick from designer chocolate four pack. Choose from flavors like Raspberry, Cappuccino, Plum, Peanut Butter, Milk Orange, Lemon, Mulling Spices, Irish Coconut, Hazelnut, Earl Grey, Apricot, Sangria, Black Cherry, Amaretto, Key Lime, Maple, Dark Orange, Chai
- Choose Color themed ribbons and boxes.
- Custom theme molds. Even molds as unique as a star trek mold of the enterprise.
- Cool images on private labels that people put on the packaging like “Thank you for attending our wedding” with your name and date.
- Chocolate bars as a table gift. And these bars we can wrap with the bow and we can do a custom label on the front and we can
put our label on the back so that you’re label is really featured.
- Chocolate lollies. Some Ideas are maple and a squirrel for fall, skiers for winter, bunnies in spring, or whatever you like.
- Wine pairing milk chocolates and dark chocolates. We serve dark chocolates with red wine, milk chocolates with white wine. We also have chocolate pairings for whiskey, beer, coffee, tea, if you’re drinking you should be eating chocolate. Wedding parties can do a tasting, bring your fiancée bring your family bring your wine everybody picks out 10 to 12 chocolates and you try them with all the wines. You can bring your wines and we can pair them up with our chocolate. So that’s a really fun thing to do, it just gives you some ideas
- Gift baskets great for mother in laws or your bride’s maids. A chocolate basket with tea, coffee, chocolate.
If you can imagine it in chocolate, the Chocolate Therapist can create it! They can work with nearly any food allergy or preference. Do allow ample time for custom chocolates. Start planning 3 months in advance, and round up your final changes two weeks in advance.
Once you have your perfect chocolates, then you need to care for them. Julie recommends keeping your chocolate cool. It melts at 70 degrees, so air conditioned rooms are best for them, or in a cool place like a refrigerator on a warm day.
Budgeting for your designer chocolates is important as well. Julie is willing to work with any budget. She told me that the average wedding couple spends between $200 and $400 on chocolates, and an elaborate order can go well
over $800. Julie recommends that you set your budget then she can help make it happen.
Julie gave me a unique bridal shower idea. She offers chocolate and wine paring evenings’. It’s popular for a bridal shower or bachelorette party to come in for a wine and chocolate pairing as they’re getting started on a fun night out on the town. We do four wines with ten chocolates. The tasting takes about an hour, and you can shop afterwards if you want. The bridal showers and bachelorette parties have been really fun.
