chocolate fondue fountain for wedding - dipper suggestions?

Need suggestions for items to dip into a chocolate fondue for a wedding this weekend. So far I have come up with strawberries, small cream puffs, marshmallows. Any suggestions? Also, any tips on how to tray the dippers would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance chowhounders!

    Other hits I've seen include cubes of pound cake, madeleines, chunks of banana, chunks of pineapple and pretzels. I think just nicely arranging the dippers on platters is great. The tricky part is keeping everything neat!

      Pretzel sticks - love the salty/sweet thing! Pound cake, squares of cheesecake (may want to freeze them for stability), graham crackers, Oreo cookies.....

      If I think of any more, I'll post them.

          Other than what's been mentioned: mandarin segments, and shortbread come to mind...
