Summer is upon us and that means one thing: wedding season. Thanks to the gorgeous weather and long holidays, this time of year has proven popular for years as the ideal time to get hitched. With so much to plan the Highland Chocolatier knew we could use our expertise to lend a helping hand and create luxury chocolate wedding favours to wow your guests.
Wedding favours have become an automatic “must” for couples to add to their to do list. In fact, sourcing the perfect minder to thank your guests for attending is steeped in history. The tradition can be dated back to the 16th Century when the French aristocracy would gift their wedding guests with jewel encrusted boxes which encased sugared almonds. This wasn’t just a chance to show off their riches, but from the belief that sugar is life-giving. The bitter-sweetness of these treats was meant to symbolise the bitter-sweetness of the wedding day. As one family member leaves their home to join another, even today, weddings are still full of smiling tears.
This symbolism resonated with the master chefs at the Highland Chocolatier who specialise in crafting delicacies using our signature 70% dark cocoa; the bitterness of our chocolate is paired perfectly with sweet flavours . We knew we could create delighting flavours perfect for any big day.
When looking for luxury chocolate wedding favours we know couples are looking for small gifts that will thrill their guests. What could be better than edible favours? Anything else will typically be left behind, unappreciated, but we’re confident that these divine flavours will be enjoyed before the first course!
