I first met Ally Jones, Owner of WrapperStar when she was selling some scrumptious, edible Wedding Favours at a Wedding Fair not long after launching ITC. At our 2011 industry Awards ceremony which took place in Oxfordshire, Ally came up with a genius idea to create our raffle tickets out of Chocolate Bars – a treat that went down brilliantly with our guests. Ally received Highly Commended in the Most Innovative Wedding Supplier category and also left with a ‘Special Recognition’ Award for all her dedication to the wedding industry. Since then it has been an absolute joy to see her business flourish with her brilliant design ideas. Today it is my pleasure to hand over to Ally as she launches her wonderful new Wonka Bar designs and ideas for that Golden Ticket…
Ally said: “I’m often asked what people should give as prizes for the winning golden tickets within my WrapperStar Wonka bars. My answer is usually ‘that’s completely up to you!’ & then I share some examples of what other people have done…….
Free shots at the bar (for all university friends)
A bottle of champagne (for one lucky winner)
Forfeits! (meant to be silly & fun……nothing too horrendous!!)
But with one wedding last year, to avoid any additional spending on spot-prizes, I suggested choosing one person on each table to receive the table’s flowers… and the idea has been so well received, I’m probably printing more of those golden tickets than anything else!
After all, so much money gets spent on fresh flowers for your wedding reception & such skill goes into producing those beautiful creations, it’s almost criminal to leave them behind at the end of the evening! Have you ever witnessed two relatives fighting over who is going to take the flowers home? It’s not pretty!! My Wonka bars are a brilliant way of adding a bit more fun into the celebrations & by doing that within your wedding favour/place settings there’s no additional cost & no family arguments!”
WrapperStar designs & produces personalised chocolate bars that are stunning party & wedding favours. Based in Oxfordshire, WrapperStar’s bars are perfect for any occasion & have been delivered throughout the UK & Europe since 2008. The majority of work Ally Jones undertakes is designing a wrapper to match your wedding stationery, theme or branding, though you are equally welcome to supply your own artwork. Individually personalised, the bars can double up as your place settings too! Wonka bars can also be personalised & are now available in any combination of colours to match your event.
With beautifully designed chocolate favour bars available from as little at £1.75 each and Personalised Wonka Bars for £2.50, it’s a delicious way to delight all your guests.
So what can you use these chocolate bars for? Well literally the only limit is your imagination but here are a few ideas to get you started…
