Are you flying off to a special destination for your wedding? It might be so you can keep it small or it might be a central location because you have family all over the world. What ever the why is, there is no reason you can't still indulge in some wedding traditions.
Many brides feel it's all to hard to arrange a beautiful bomboniere or wedding favour for their destination. Or they find their options very limited if they are bringing them from home. The other common concern is they are more expensive if sources in the destination country/ location. I'm here to tell you it is easier than you think and you have almost as many options as someone having their wedding at home.

Chocolate! Everyone loves chocolate (ok yes there may be one or two people who don't but we can't please everyone).
Custom chocolates or bonbons are magical because they can be almost any colour AND flavour! You can have just chocolate or pair with cookies for even more versatility. Have a look at our chocolate gallery to see more colour options
