They could double as the placecard.  As much as I hate having to carry something around during a cocktail hour, that might solve the issue.  People are less likely to steal something with someone else’s name on it??

Just place one at each table setting. People won’t be rude enough to snatch them from someone else’s seat. Maybe from an empty spot at an empty table, but that’s not really a big deal. I really like candy coated almods and usually grab a spare box from an extra table to munch on when they present themselves.

Are they already packaged into some sort of pretty box, or are you boxing them yourselves into sets of two?  You could use them as your escort cards, with their name and table numbers written (prettily, of course! :)) on the top.  Although if they pick them up during cocktail hour, that might be a little awkward for carrying around with drinks… in which case I second the at each place setting idea.

If you don’t want to go with the comments above and would rather have them near the exit, I think the best plan is to just have some extras.  You’ll have people that will take more than one, you’ll also have people who don’t take any, so you may come out even.

If you put one at each table setting, would your guests really steal other guests favors? Lol. This would be so funny to watch. Like on a hidden camera.

If it were a non-perishable gift, I’d say buy extras, that way you could always return the unused ones after the wedding.  But it sounds like these are perishable, packed on the day by the shop in those little boxes?  It sounds like you’re just going to be stuck with buying a few extras, if you want to have enough for everyone on the night.  Not everyone is going to take one, but you want to be prepared just in case…

It if were me, I’d probably buy extras just so I can have the yummy chocolate to take on my honeymoon.  🙂
