For many people who are trying to figure out what to use for wedding favors the different varieties of chocolate treats can be excellent choices. A delightful assortment of gourmet chocolate truffles can be a perfect choice for the reception and since there are many manufacturers that offer a diverse selection of choices in the color of the boxes and ribbons it is easy to find a matching or complementary color to that of your theme. The foil covered variety of chocolate wedding favors can bring an added element of style and class for gift bags and can be found in all kinds of shapes and sizes such as hearts and stars.
Again, these can be found in a wide variety of colors as well to go along with your chosen colors for your wedding. Many makers of chocolate wedding favors offer specialty themes such as poker chips, coins, and even playing cards and in specialty flavors like peanut butter filled or mint. One choice that I have seen recently that was a huge hit was the personalized candy bar. These come with a customized wrapper that can have the bride and groom's names, wedding date and other information imprinted on it.
You could even have members of the wedding party have their own, although it is expensive to get the individual printing like that. Some companies actually offer the option of embossing the actual bar with a wedding themed message which can be very special for the couple and they are offered in milk chocolate, white chocolate, or dark chocolate. You can find molded wedding favors in chocolate in a wide variety of themes that will suit just about any idea a bride can come up with. Indeed, if there is a mold of an item a chocolate maker can and will put the confection in it.
I have seen such themes as casinos, castles, and even dolphins for a beach wedding. Other unique wedding favors I have seen of note are tiny chocolate wedding cakes complete with monogrammed truffles and fondant icing, cookies shaped like wedding cakes, and pretzels dipped in delicious gourmet chocolate. Within each of these are diverse selections as well such as animal designs and poker chips. The packaging available can be fun to with some companies offering them in boxes made to look like tuxedos or bridal gowns. A recent innovation that is a big hit is a customized cake or cookie with an actual photo of the bride and groom.
My wife had a groom's cake made for me of a computer screen due to the fact that we met online and as a tribute to my career online. With this new technology you are limited only by your imagination.
