Brides and grooms often struggle to find the perfect way to thank their destination wedding guests. When you have a destination wedding, it’s almost guaranteed that those present at your nuptials are some of the people you care about most in the world. After all, they’re the ones who spent their hard-earned cash to make the trip.
We have a sweet idea for a favor your guests will love. We at Destination I Do recently got some chocolate bars in the mail – much to our delight. However, these weren’t your average chocolate bars. The chocolate from Chocomize.com is completely customizable. You can make the cocoa favors for your guests as specific or basic as you would like.
Is Aunt Penny’s favorite ice cream Cookies N’ Cream? Then gift her with a “Cookie Bar” ($5.45) as a "thank you" for being there on your most special of days. This confection has a white chocolate base, Oreo pieces and chocolate covered cookie dough pieces.
The ring bearer and flower girl often create the sweetest moment of your ceremony. Thank the kiddos with an over the top “Candy Bar” ($5.80). They will squeal with delight at the site of this enormous milk chocolate bar covered in gummy bears, chocolate candy and Nerds.
If there isn’t a treat that fits your taste in the pre-made bars then you can simply create your own. Online you can choose any 5 of over 100 toppings. Chocomize has various nuts, dried fruits, herbs & spices, candy and decorations to choose from. Some of the more unique options are bacon, crystallized rose petals, mini chipotle peppers, curry powder and dried goji berries. Don’t be scared, there are lots of more common toppings to choose from as well.
Besides hand picking your toppings, you also have the option of adding an edible image or a custom label to your Belgian chocolate bar. The bars can be designed to fit any budget and the turnaround time is surprisingly quick – most orders are delivered within a week. Chocomize does offer discounts for wedding orders and bulk purchases.
Interested? Great, because Chocomize is offering a special discount to Destination I Do readers. During checkout enter the code “destinationido” to receive 10% off your total purchase. Because we’ve seen the chocolate bars in person, we can say that they are well worth the price. The bars are about twice the size of a standard Hershey Bar and they come in adorable packaging which would be easy to ship or carry along to your destination wedding.
