Looking and feeling good have become hugely important in our lives, and are a top priority in the lead up to a wedding - so why not do both in real style on World Chocolate day (Friday 7th July)? Strip is known for a particularly indulgent and unusual chocolate treat: their chocolate-scented wax - so if you're undergoing the fate of waxing, whether it's your legs, underarms or somewhere a little more intimate, you may as well do it smothered in something you love! They also have chocolate themed rooms at each of their 6 locations (Soho, Chelsea, Notting Hill, One New Change, Islington and Loughton) so you can really immerse yourself in luxury.

When it comes to planning the big day, it’s the little touches that make all the difference, and what better little touch than some indulgent chocolate! Once the venue’s booked, the invitations have been sent and the band’s been booked, it’s time to start focusing on the fun stuff – food!

 

While a catering company can take control of the three courses, why not treat your guests to some Montezuma’s truffles as a little extra. With so many flavours to choose from, there’s plenty of ways you can incorporate them into your special day!
