Ooh I think that sounds lovely and very sophisticated! I’ve never been to a wedding that has done this, but I have been to ones that had wine tastings, and I think that tastings in general are very sophisticated.

I would think that the chocolates would be paired better with various licquers which are sweetened with various fruits, cream, chocolate, etc (think Bailey’s). But this may not come with your bar. You might want to talk to your caterer about how much this would add if it is not. Bailey’s is ofter served in little chocolate shot classes, which I think is really elegant – and you can eat them after finishing your sample of Bailey’s. I can really recommend pairings, but I’m sure you could go to a gourmet grocer or boutique liquor store and ask them. Since they sell it, I’m sure they would have great suggestions.

In terms of decor, I might present the chocolates and liquor/liquers on copper trays since that is one of your colors, simply because I LOVE the combination of copper and chocolate colors. Then maybe add in your other colors as accents on the bar with small flower arrangements or ribbon. But I don’t think you will need a lot of decoration if the presentation (beautiful bottles of liquer laid out, chocolate tasting cups and an array of lovely chocolates) is done simply and elegantly.

Sorry I couldn’t offer more help, but hopefully this is a start. I’d love to hear how it turns out!

I don’t think it is tacky at all to give guests the option of taking some home along with a book on pairings – I think it is a lovely idea. You can set out pretty bags that compliment the decor. I think it is a very unique favor idea and your guests will love it!
