Wedding chocolates: a sweet alternative to wedding cake


Weddings have undergone a transformation in recent years as more and more couples have found ways to make the occasion uniquely their own. In the latest BRIDES American Wedding Study 2016, Condé Nast revealed several ways newlyweds are bucking old traditions:

  • Couples are less likely to use traditional wedding vows, opting instead to write their own.
  • “Buddymoons” are on the rise, with couples inviting friends and family along for the post-nuptial vacation.
  • Couples are more focused than ever on personalizing their wedding to suit their personal style.

These trends make sense if you’re not a cookie cutter couple. Why force yourself to fit the traditional mold?

For those looking to step outside the norm, make your wedding stand out with chocolate desserts that delight and surprise guests instead of a cake. If replacing the cake isn’t an option you’re interested in (I mean, who doesn’t love wedding cake?), try thinking about replacing the Groom’s cake or wedding favors for your guests with chocolate.

Why Chocolate Over Wedding Cake?

Chocolate offers a fun alternative to a wedding cake for a variety of reasons:

  • It’s gluten-free, so you or your loved ones with a gluten sensitivity don’t have to skip out on dessert.
  • Delysia Chocolatier uses local ingredients and is responsibly sourced, so you’ll please your conservation-minded guests while simultaneously supporting local businesses.
  • Chocolate offers a big punch in a small package, allowing your personality (as individuals and as a couple) to come through in flavor. At Delysia, we take pride in creating innovative flavors and would love to customize something specifically for your event with you in mind.
  • Chocolate is more versatile than cake – you can display it as a table centerpiece, serve it at a dessert bar, or include it in your favors.
  • Best of all, you can share a box of chocolate truffles at each table. This gives guests an opportunity to pick and choose while talking amongst each other, encouraging a communal experience.
