It’s no secret that at Wedded Wonderland, we’re all a little chocolate-crazy; so we understand why it’s important to include it as much as possible on your Big Day.
Like an old friend, chocolate has been with you throughout your relationships – through the fights (when you buried yourself in a 200g block), through romantic date nights (boxes of truffles), through girlie catch-ups (mixed bag of flavours) and every evening after work (best served with a glass of Cabernet).
Here are 7 less-than-obvious ways to pay tribute to your smooth, dark and rich friend during the Wedding Day.
1. The Wedding Day Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so instead of the typical champagne and fruit, why not indulge with a mocha (double shot) and a flaky pain au chocolate, served with a side of Jeff de Bruges Noir Orange?
2. In the Order of Service
If you’re handing out an Order of Service or Programme at your ceremony, consider including a chocolate bar for guests to keep their energy levels up. We guarantee that you’ll instantly up your status to #BestBrideEver.

If you and your Groom are having your photos taken between the ceremony and reception, it’s so important to serve your guests food. Consider having a mixture of both sweet and savoury canapes and keep it simple by serving plates of decadent chocolate truffles as the sweet canapes.
Create your own signature cocktail to serve at the Wedding! As a fellow chocolate-lover, you can incorporate your favourite chocolate flavour by melting tablets or blocks and combining with liquors like Tia Maria or Amaretto. Our pick is Jeff de Bruges’ N° 4 Peru Dark 65% – it’s a deep cocoa flavour with just enough bite to counteract the sweetness of the liquor.
There are so many beautiful-looking chocolates available, why not double-up and use them as treats, as well as table decoration? The Jeff de Bruges Juliettes collection can be scattered along a table runner and intertwined with vines for a rustic feel.
If you’re having a summer Wedding, consider serving chocolate soft-serve ice cream as dessert. Not only is it refreshing, but it’s a sure-fire way to set your Big Day apart from the others.
7. The Cake
Not a huge fan of traditional cake? Fear not, create a chocolate tower and let guests serve themselves by trying the different flavour combinations!
