I think lemon drops are cute, stick with your original plan!

I like the jelly beans idea because then there are a ton of different flavors!

I think jelly beans are something most people like.

How about an array of options in the boxes? Lemon drops, jelly beans, etc.

lemon drops might also stick together unless they are individually wrapped? i would go with something that nas a hard shell, like jelly beans, mike and ices, jordan almonds or m& m’s

We are doing something very similar! I bought boxes and a bunch of ribbon and just ordered my candy from candywarehouse.com. We didn’t want to do chocolate (thinking it would melt at our summer outdoor wedding) so we opted for saltwater taffy (to do all 100 boxes using 3 or so flavors would only be like $50) because we used to go to Pismo beach all the time and lived there for a summer and would always to buy taffy. I was all set to go and then dear Fiance saw that they had candy legos (essentially sweet tart type candies that you can play with) and he nearly peed his pants with excitement. So we opted to do half and half. It still only cost me $80 inclucing shipping for way more than enough candy. 

I would say to maybe get a few different kinds to fill all your boxes. Guests can pick what they want that way. I am tying the two different kinds with different ribbon but you could put them in the different boxes or something

No problem! Fiance LOVED them. So did I, and they actually are pretty tasty! I had one of the 11lb boxes (or whatever the size was) and it filled half of my boxes (50) with a bit left over, probably enough to do another 5 boxes or so. But I filled them to the top with legos. Some of the pieces are a bit small. To distinguish them, I just put different colored ribbons but I won’t be putting any other kind of labels on them. i love your idea for a cute little saying or poem though… something along the lines of “building our future together” or something! I just know that I’m going to make sure I place the legos at all the places kdis are sitting so they have something to do during the “boring” parts of the reception, like the father/daughter dance and whatnot. 

I was actually surprised that the part of this process that took the longest was assembling the boses. Filling them and putting a sticker on and then tying a bow only took me a few hours. Not too bad.
