The Luxe Life | Satisfy even the mightiest sweet tooth with these utterly decadent Lowcountry treats, perfect for favors and dessert spreads 



Sweet Talk (; Satiate cocoa cravings with handcrafted chocolate bars from North Charleston’s Sweeteeth. Chocolatier Johnny Battles recommends the salted caramel (his most popular flavor) and the peanut butter and chipotle (its hint of spice will heat things up). Order 100 or more to receive a 50-cent discount on each.

I Do Dec-Layer!
Bring the 12-layered “ultimate coconut cake” to your reception by ordering them to-go from Peninsula Grill. For a unique display, arrange the rave-worthy treats on stands of various heights ($100 each; serves 16).

Praline Dream
River Street Sweets has provided Charleston with their deliciously addictive pralines since the 1980s. Hire their chefs to make and serve the treats at your reception ($2,000 for up to 150 guests). An added bonus: newlyweds get a goodie bag to take on their honeymoon.

Show Me the Honey
Send guests home with a sweet favor from the Savannah Bee Company, which makes their Charleston Honey  from flowers gathered on the Ashepoo River. Three-ounce jars are $6; 12-ounce are $15.

Box Set
