All the chocolate can be expensive. What about making a donation to the University of Florida athletic department in lieu of favors? They might be willing to send something to you for your guests.

For one my sister is currently a gator and I love this idea! It is a little personal touch you can add to the wedding… I say wrap them and make cute tags then put them in a cute basket with a sign in a frame next to it or something… You do not need a favor but they are edible and I am sure people will think they are cute. You cant go wrong with edible favors at all… Some might take a few 😉

Buying them at Michaels with a coupon wouldnt be too expensive…

@LRin2011: I think that would be great. You could hang them from branches for people to grab.

It might take a lot of time depending on how many molds you have.  I think it’s a cute idea and I woudln’t worry about it looking cheap.  I’ve received some fairly weird plastic doohickies at wedding that I’ve had no idea what to do with but I’d know exactly what to do with a chocolate pop.

I second the charitable donation idea. I am in the Chi Omega Sorority so we are making a donation in the name of our wedding guests to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, our national philanthropy. A great thing about this is that you can really cater the amount of the donation to fit your wedding budget and there are no last minute costs for extra ribblon and celo bags. There’s also no work time involved.

Plus if you put it in perspective you can make a donation to a good cause or give each one of your guests a sucker…ya know.

Also, I might add, donate it to a scholarship program for the University. The althletic department has tons of money in the University’s budget as it is.

It’s not too heap of a favor, but you could easily do a donation instead. We’re doing a donation and it’s for a good cause!

@LRin2011:

It is great that you remember to incorporate elements in your wedding that are about you and your future husband.  Go for it!

Displaying suggestions:

1. Foam (find at Michaels or any crafts store)
2. Moss (to cover the foam when all lollipops )
3. Any jar or containers that you wish to stick the foam in

Buy round pots or rectangular plates and place a foam ball, square, or rectangular  shape one (cut to your desire) and stick them in there.  However be precise when you are ready to stick them in because if you wobble them in the lollipop will be lopsided since you created to big of a hole .  I speak from experience for my nephews birthday we did Elmo chocolate lollipops and the first foam got destroyed because I keep inserting and removing the pops and  jamming them in.

Buy MOss to cover the foam you utilized makes it look swampy (so that the Moss does not leave when your guest pick them up  HOT GLUE the moss to the foam
