Box of Demarquette Chocolates

Demarquette Fine Chocolates – Product of the Week

If you are looking for a wedding favour to wow your guests then take a look at Demarquette chocolates. If you love chocolate, and let’s face it most of us do, then you and your wedding guests will love the Demarquette chocolate range.

Demarquette – Fine Chocolates is a family run business founded by British born Master Chocolatier Marc Demarquette in 2005. They specialise in the artisan production and sale of luxury hand-made fine chocolates and are winners of 5 Gold Medals – 2009 Great Taste Awards.

The Great British Orchard - Fruit Caramel Creams - Demarquette Chocolates

The Demarquette chocolates that we sampled were ‘The Great British Orchard – Fruit Caramel Creams’. The design of these hand-made chocolates is exquisite, with each half sphere-shaped chocolate hand-painted with a marbled effect on the outside, like nothing we have ever seen before. Each chocolate is made with milk or dark chocolate and filled with a creamy caramel made with Hampshire and Cornish cream and fresh & ripe fruit, giving an amazingly fruity taste.

Box of Demarquette Chocolates

The Great British Orchard range come in a beautiful red presentation box with the British Isles on the front and are tied with racing green ribbon. If you are having a traditional style or British-themed wedding, The Great British Orchard range would be perfect as favours for your guests. You could have a little stack of these chocolates on each table for your guests to enjoy with their coffee after the wedding breakfast.

At £16 for a box of 12 or £36 for 36 you’re probably not going to give your guests a box each, but you could always split the boxes and give each guest a beautifully wrapped individual chocolate.

Demarquette have a wide range of hand-made chocolates that would really wow your wedding guests. For more information about the Demarquette range take a look at their website www.demarquette.co.uk.

Biscuiteers Heart Wedding Favour Biscuit

Biscuiteers Wedding Favour Biscuits

If you are looking for wedding favours but want something different from sugared almonds in pretty voile bags, well we have the perfect alternative.

Everyone loves a biscuit, so how about giving each of your wedding guests a beautifully iced biscuit that they can enjoy with their coffee after your wedding breakfast?

Biscuiteers Wedding Favours

Biscuiteers wedding favours are traditional baked biscuits in either vanilla or chocolate flavour and come in all shapes and sizes, from letters to hearts, top hats to bouquets of flowers, and the team at Biscuiteers can even make personalised biscuit favours, bespoke to your wedding.

We were lucky enough to try some samples of the Biscuiteers wedding favour biscuits and we have to say, we have never tasted biscuits so good!

Biscuiteers Heart Wedding Favour Biscuit

We were sent biscuits in the shape of a wedding cake, dove and a heart, all of which came in the most beautiful packaging. The wedding cake was in a clear cellophane bag tied with Biscuiteers ribbon, the dove was in a beautiful box with a clear lid so you could see straight in, and the heart, well…this got us all excited! It came in one of the Biscuiteers’ stunning white gift boxes and it was beautifully presented, wrapped in tissue paper – it had us in great suspense at the anticipation of what was in the box, and there was this beautiful heart shaped biscuit with gorgeous floral icing on the top.

The hand-iced biscuits look so pretty that we didn’t know if we should eat them or keep them…although temptation got the better of us.

Biscuiteers Presentation Box

Forget petit fours, get your guests talking over their coffee with one of the Biscuiteers’ fabulous wedding favour biscuits.

The Biscuiteers wedding range start from just £2.75 per favour. For more information visit the Biscuiteers website www.biscuiteers.com

Pretty Pink Toes Heel Stoppers

Heel Stoppers from Pretty Pink Toes

Ladies, how many times have you bought a gorgeous new pair of shoes for a wedding or other event and have ruined the heels the first time you have worn them when you’ve walked across a lawn or field and sunk into the grass? Not to mention the fact that you look pretty silly as you try in vain to stop yourself sinking, either as you walk, or while you stand to smile for photographs.

Well your problems have now been solved!

Pretty Pink Toes Boutique have a wonderful product called The Heel Stopper. Clean Heels flexible Heel Stoppers are designed to fit onto stiletto heels to stop you sinking into mud and grass.

Pretty Pink Toes Heel Stoppers

I have been playing with a pair at The Wedding Community this week and I have to say they are amazing! Simply pop them onto the heel of your shoe to prevent your heels sinking into grass. They also help protect floors on cruise ships, yachts or wooden floors.

Heel Stoppers come in three different sizes:

  • Petite – approx fits heel widths 0.5 to 0.7cm
  • Small  – fits heel widths of 0.9 to 1.2cm
  • Medium –  fits heel widths of 1.3 to 1.6cm (This is the size I tried out which seems perfect for the majority of my shoes)

The Heel Stoppers come in different designs, from clear or black, to fancy glitter ones embellished with Diamante Hearts, Ivory or Silver Hearts, Mother of Pearl, and Teardrops and Pearls.

Prices start at just £4.99, and all Heel Stoppers come in a pretty voile bag. They really are a must for all brides and female wedding guests who love their shoes!
