For our favors, we will be putting together little celophane (or similar) baggies of hockey puck shaped gumballs. Each little puck has either the name of a hockey team, city, hockey play, etc on the front. FI played hockey growing up and he’s shared his love of the game with me (now I’m a big fan as well). Our cake toppers are a hockey player groom (wearing a tux, hockey skates and carrying his stick & helmet) and a cheering “#1 fan” bride. Obviously, we have a bit of a theme going through our reception. I want to keep that going with the favors, but I’m a bit stuck …
I’m not very creative at all, so I’m having a hard time figuring out what the favor tags should say. I was thinking something like “thanks for being our #1 fan on our big day” or something, but I don’t want it to be super long …
Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions would be muchly appreciated. Thanks so much, bees!!!

I think what you have is great. It does not have to be anything ‘clever’, just a simple thank you will suffice.

Maybe something like
“This is one face-off we both won”

“Puck you!” HA just kidding that would be awful.
“Our goalie was for you to like our wedding…we hope you had a puckin’ good time!” Sorry I couldn’t resist.
“As Charlie from the Mighty Ducks said, Goonies never say die!”
Yeah I am no help at all.

@peachacid: Hahahaha! As awful as I know I’m going to sound for saying this, there are at least a few guests I can think of that may need a good ol’ fasioned “Puck You” by the end of the night, lol.

Celebrating with you was our foremost GOAL,
This’ll taste really awesome if you SCORE a bowl.
But if SCORING’s your thing, show some self-control–
This shape represents a PUCK–not birth-control!
Um, for real though, I’ll keep thinking….

“Chew these with whatever teeth you still have!”
“Stay cool!” (get it like ice is cold? no? i guess not.)
Speaking of ice, I just found a scrapbook I made in 1994…all about Nancy Kerrigan. LMAO.

I would be much better at this if your favorite game were football! LOL
Hmmm. How about one of these:
“Your presence was the “icing” on our cake!”
“Thank you for sharing our “power play” day!”
“Thank you for joining us as we “face off” for a Lifetime!”
That’s all I can think of right now. I’ll try to come up with something better…

@BlueRhino: As a fellow hockey fanatic, I have to ask: Who is your team? And where did you find hockey-puck-shaped gumballs??

@Miss Mauverick: Detroit, baby! FI’s whole family was raised in Detroit (Dad, Uncle, Mom, etc) so they’ve been hardcore fans for as long as they can remember. We root for the Wings, Tigers, Pistons and Lions (but we’re not huge basketball fans so the Pistons don’t get as much love, haha). I never had a team or seriously rooted for anyone, so it seemed natural just to “bandwagon” along (terrible, I know, haha).
I found hockey puck gumballs on Amazon … 25lbs of it for $37 plus shipping (so I think total it works out to around $40 some-odd). I have no idea what we’ll do with the leftovers, as I’m sure there will be lots from a 25lb bag, but who doesn’t like gumballs? Should be easy to chew or give away lol :-).

“Sticks up for the happy couple!”
“A puck you won’t mind taking to the face!”
“Good puck (luck) to the happy couple!” [with this one you would have puck written, crossed out so that you can still read it, and then luck written)

@peachacid: You give me the giggles!

@peachacid: lol don’t worry the one foul word that rhymes with puck is also what keeps coming to my mind LOL
