    I agree, maybe making your own in the best option.

    I know those gormet carmel apples are about (or more) than $5 where I am from, so that to me is breaking the bank. Unless you have the means to do that, or have a small guest list them maybe its plasible.

    Another thing is, as much as I think the idea is cute…it might be a bit…messy. I mean all those people dresses up chomping on a carmel apple (which I always find to be a feat) and sticky.

    Just somethings to keep in mind.

    Maybe if you’re really set on the flavors of the caramel apples, maybe you could so something like a favor of a caramel apple lollipop (I love them) and less mess – like these ones: http://www.southwestcandy.com/Tootsie_Roll_Caramel_Apple_Pop_P303.cfm

    good luck!

    Mmmmm, caramel apples…  There’s this place, I’m not sure but it might be a chain, that makes amazing caramel apples in Denver, Daffy Apples.  Here’s their website: http://www.daffyapple.com.  They use like real ingredients and fresh apples…  mmmmm….  Anyway, looking on the website, it looks like you can get them for under 2 bucks an apple.  Not too bad.

    Ha! Yes!  We were in Bed Bath and Beyond, and they had a sample out!  Ew, so many bodies have probably tried it on!  haha

    i love the idea and think it would be too cute! i wouldnt break the bank with the gourmet ones, try to find some cheaper ones. and a way to keep it cleaner is to make sure they are wrapped in some kind of cute plastic and maybe have some wetnaps if you plan on distributing them before the guests leave.

    we’ve consideredt his idea as well, but not set on it. I love it! Do you have any pumpkin farm or orchards near you that you could purchase them far, they will likely accommodate a good price for a large mass order.

    Cute idea, but I don’t see how you could pull it off without some serious labor to make them yourselves or else some serious cash. I’ve never seen them costing less than $5 apiece. If you were having a smaller wedding I would say this would be feasible, but I don’t think it’s economical for a wedding of your size. Alas!

    in response to chelseamorning — that is why I suggested getting in touch with a local orchard or farms. We have a cider mill near my home town and they offer 3/$6, and would likely offer an increased discount for over 100. They are the best candy apples I’ve ever had!

    OMG I LOOOOOOOVE caramel apples. Not candied apples though…yuck. Either way (gourmet or home made or whatever) you can’t go wrong.

    Try http://www.daffyapple.com.  Their caramel and candy apples are a little over a dollar a piece.  Very reasonable!
