World Chocolate Day

by Lauren J Sharkey

July 7th is World Chocolate Day and we couldn’t be more excited!  No one loves chocolate more than we do, especially when it comes to weddings!  Here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate chocolate on your big day:

INVITATIONS/SAVE THE DATE

1. “For Richer For Poorer” Save the Dates ($1.99 from LittleIndieStudio)

Even though these are labeled as wedding favors, you could also pop them in envelopes and send them out as your save the date!

A creative way to ask your guests to mark their calendars!

For the toppers, try these hot air balloon toppers from StudioIdea (12 for $6.90):  (Obviously, you may have to shorten the sticks, or ask if they can shorten them for you.)
