Chocolate Wedding Favors - Many brides and grooms take it upon themselves to distribute chocolate wedding favors to their guests as a token of appreciation. But why should the bride and groom be responsible for showering their guests with gifts? A wedding is meant to be a special day for the happy couple getting married not a day to distribute gifts to friends and family. The guests that attend your wedding should be happy for you, and not expect anything in return.
There are two ways to distribute guest wedding favors. Wedding favors can be placed at each wedding reception guests place setting to take along whenever they leave or elegantly displayed on a table near the entrance to the wedding reception venue where the bridge and groom will be toward the end of the reception. As guests say goodbye to the couple, they can thank each guest for coming by giving them the favor or telling them to take one when they leave.
Care should be exercised when going with a chocolate wedding party favor since chocolate can melt when stored in the wrong way or place. Ants and other insects might also find their way to the chocolate which is why it is best to store these in an airtight container. Handling the chocolate wedding party favor frequently can also instigate melting. Putting these in containers can help to minimize the impact of melting.
A charitable wedding favor means the couple donate their entire favor budget a chosen charity or charities instead of giving their guests those little keepsakes in pretty boxes. Many couples will choose to donate to charities or causes which are close to their hearts & then present their guests a small note informing them that instead of a wedding favor a donation of $x has been made to a selected charity.
There are many ways to donate to charity & then present this type of favor to your wedding guests. Some couples will feel guilty about not providing their guests with a little memento of the day & so will set aside a small part of the budget for a token gesture of chocolate hearts or the like. However many couples need not worry as most guests are pleasantly surprised by the gesture & give very positive feedback to the couple after the wedding. If you are considering going down the charitable favor route here are a few options for you to consider.
