5. Propose marriage on a Chicago Chocolate Tour
We have had several couples get engaged to be married on our chocolate tours! We customize the tour for you, and this could range from having us pick up the ring in advance and tuck it under a specially marked truffle on a silver tray, to having a flash mob appear and sing "your song" before you pop the question! Some additional details are at www.chicagochocolatetours.com/bridal, and once you are engaged we can take care of the bachelorette party with a chocolate tour or a cupcake tour! Engagement tours are $40 per person for a public tour, or $120 per couple for a private tour, plus any extras that are selected, such as singers or flowers. And, if you get engaged with us, you and your spouse can then take a free tour with us every year to celebrate your anniversary!
