Well you all know this isn’t a real wedding its just the wedding of my dreams after 20 years of marrriage.
I really want something unique to cary down the the aisle with me. so now I am just searching for just different ideas of what some of you have seen carried. I have seen the broach bouquets, LOVE THEM! and am considering them, but I dont know, I may want something different, and this is what I was thinking but I have NO clue if its possible…
I would like a bouguet of candy flowers… that look like real flowers… so right after we renew our vows we can feed them to eachother (no cake cutting here) but do any of you know if this is possible. I would love them to perhaps be in different colors of chocolate. (they will hold up, the vows wont take long, its going to be a short and sweet ceremony). but I want them to look real, so its a complete surprise to people.
Has anyone heard of this?

They make chocolate roses in many different colors that look like the real thing. They are even on green stems! The ones I have seen have foil on them to make them different colors, but you can easily make these yourself and dye white chocolate in candy molds

That’s a great idea! I wouldn’t suggest chocolate though, don’t set it down, don’t touch your dress, basically don’t touch anything with it. Chocolate is brittle in small details like flowers and Chocolate is messy. Your body heat alone will be warming it up. Just be very careful. I think it’ll be too much to worry about.
I would try fondant flowers, or sugar flowers instead. Fondant is pretty easy to work with. It’s a lot like clay. And a baker should be able to help you out with the sugar flowers.
If you really want chocolate, don’t listen to me. I always think of worst case scenarios to make sure I’m prepared for the worst. Do whatever will make you happiest!
