Wow Your Guests with Wedding Favors They Will Love
If you are like me, then chocolate is your love language! And no one understands this better than Godiva. When it comes to your wedding favors and gifts, this master chocolatier knows the universal truth: that thank yous should taste as sweet as they feel–and that the way to the heart is with a beautifully shaped piece of chocolate. With these gifts, your only worry will be that guests may try to snag some extras! From your bridal gifts to your favors, go with Godiva for delicious decadence (and with their bulk pricing like 15% off any $200+ purchase , you can get some kind-to-your-budget savings!). Here are my favorite ways for brides to use Godiva chocolates for their wedding day:
As Bridal Party Gifts
Full size boxes to pop the question
Ask your girls to stand by your side on your wedding day with a gold 19 piece assorted box of chocolates! There will be tons of nights filled with wine drinking, invitation assembling, and bridesmaid dress shopping. A full size, ribbon-tied box of Godiva chocolates shows your ladies how much you appreciate them and how well you understand their taste(buds)! Pair the classic gold Godiva box with a little handwritten note for a (literally) sweet present.
…and to thank your ladies on the day of
You can also use the full size Godiva chocolate box as your bridesmaid gift. As your bridal party gets pretty and sips champagne on the morning of your special day, they’ll adore a beautiful gift that they can also eat! Because, let’s be real, it’s hard work getting wedding photo ready! A variety box of chocolates is luxurious and timeless–plus, with boxes as beautiful as these, you won’t have to worry about any extra wrapping the week of the wedding! Simply set them out with some cards and you’ll have some very happy bridesmaids on your hands.
For the groom and his guys
Aren’t these chocolate cigars adorable? Your groom and his groomsmen will feel like classy dudes with these Godiva milk chocolate cigars. Display them in quirky mugs or give them an elegant spin by putting them in monogrammed whiskey glasses–they’ll feel like they’re on the set of Mad Men. Or you can send them up with a beer for a guy-friendly pre-wedding activity (an IPA will pair perfectly with the chocolate). Just be sure to make sure your photographer is there because these cigars make for the perfect photo prop!
As a token of gratitude for your vendors and family members
They’ve worked really hard to make all your bridal dreams come true so thank your close family members and your wedding planner with an assorted box of chocolates tied up with a big bow (plus, you can score some points with your future mother-in-law). Attach a cute label to each one telling them to indulge in fine Belgian deliciousness! WARNING: they will probably open up the boxes right there and then.
Wrapped chocolates in sheer bags
Forget those mint almonds and give your guests something they’ll really love: wrapped Godiva milk chocolate caramels in little bags placed at their settings. This way, guests can enjoy them at their seat or stick them in their purse or pocket for at-home munching. Sheer bags let the glossy Godiva wrappers shine through and make it easy to read the flavors (after all, Godiva has so many different ones, your guests will want to know which one they get). If you want to add to the look, you can also place the bags in small boxes! These packages will be enticing in every way possible and give your favors an upscale feel.
Small boxes with ribbons in your wedding colors
One of my favorite things about Godiva chocolates is their ribbon options. These thin ribbons come in a variety of shades so you can match them to your wedding colors or order them in a hue that contrasts with your linens or place settings. You can also give the classic Godiva box a personalized feel–because they can literally be customized! You can have these ribbons printed with your wedding date or a little message of appreciation to your guests. It’ll be a feast for both the eyes and stomachs.
Assorted box of chocolates placed in gift bags
You can also use Godiva chocolates to create a stunning dessert display! What’s better than a tower of champagne glasses? A tower of glistening gold chocolate boxes, of course! You can also make a dessert display out of mix and match gift bags and tissue paper. Pick bags in different patterns but the same color scheme to make a grab-and-go station for guests to help themselves to at the end of the night. Don’t be surprised if its one of the most popular areas at your wedding!
A Godiva hot chocolate bar
Treat your guests to a late night snack by setting up a hot chocolate bar. After dancing all night long, your guests will love this velvety, hand-warming treat. Stock your hot chocolate bar with a variety of marshmallows and caramel syrup for drizzling. Everyone loves a chocolaty drink! Or, you can create hot cocoa kits to send home with each guest at the end of the night. Simply put all the necessary ingredients into a cute bag with instructions. It will warm your guests inside and out!
However you chose to use them, Godiva chocolates will make your wedding sweet in every sense of the word!
