Congratulations on your first wedding cake order! In my opinion it is better to make it out of gumpaste and you would need to run a floral wire threw it for more support. I would say to let it dry out as long as possible maybe a week or more if you have the time. If you must make it from fondant knead in some tylose(CMC) so it may harden better. Good luck!

i would also cut it out of gumpaste one week ahead of time to let it dry hard,but i usually use a lolly pop stick or a wooden dowel and "glue" it to the back with some melted chocolate,let it dry for a couple minutes, and stick into cake.

I would do the same as prior poster. I would also make two hearts and "glue" them to each other on the stick so to hide the stick and give it a 360 feel, jmo.
