Hey Bees! This is my first time posting a question and not replying with my opinion, so bear with me.
We are almost done with our planning, the wedding is in three weeks. The last thing we have to do really is put the final touch on our favors. We have a variety of hard candies (starbrites, werther’s, jolly ranchers, brach’s, butter scotches, etc.) in cute little mason jars. All we need to do is label the jars and we’re done.
We wanted to play on the “sucking” aspect (without being too dirty) and write something kind of funny on the jars. “Thanks for sharing in our special day… now suck on these” was the line that gave us a laugh. After a little consideration, we thought some people might find it in bad taste so we vetoed.
It seems that’s the way it goes with this wedding and ideas that fit our sense of humor. We come up with something that cracks us up, something we love, then we mull it over and think that some one might not share our humor.
My question to you guys is, has anyone else had this problem where they keep vetoing their ideas or should we just go with what we like? It’s especially hard to scrap ideas that we like when we’re in the home stretch and want to just be like F-IT, WHO CARES, WE’RE DOING IT. At the same time, I don’t want one tiny tacky joke to spoil the day for anyone.
My other question is… anyone got any good double entendres (not necessarily dirty) for a hard candy favor? 🙂

Personally, I wouldn’t want to have the word “suck” associated with my wedding at all.
How about “Savor the Sweetness” or something like that?

If a tacky joke is going to spoil the whole day for anyone they probably shouldn’t leave the house! I think it’s great to incorporate your sense of humor in with the wedding and the favors! I say go for it.

You could use several phrases/jokes, hoping that your older/more conservative/less awesome guests will get the “standard”/”boring” labels but keeping the “better”/”funnier” ones for your own amusement… If I noticed that the jar I picked up had a different label from the others, I’d definitely read all the labels and then pick the one I liked best.
I’ll keep thinking for the label puns. 🙂

Your first one didnt seem dirty, just a little rude. BUT at the same time, made me laugh. I’m assuming you know all the people coming to your wedding, so they should know your sense of humor and find them appropriate to you. However if your looking for other options why not something more like this? –>
Thanks for celebrating with us, we hope it didnt suck!

Maybe something incorporating “hope our wedding day didn’t suck” or similar?

@mholden: I like this idea. I personally wouldn’t want to keep a jar that said “suck” on it (yes, I’m boring), but the general idea of the favors is very cute.

@mholden: OOOOHHH! Love this idea! We could all help you come up withphrases!
“Become a sucker for Love”

It wouldn’t spoil the day for me as a guest, and I’d probably chuckle about it, but if I were in your shoes I’d probably choose something without the word suck, like @abbie017 suggested.
Too many older folks will be at our reception for me to not feel a little selfconscious about offending them. 😛
ETA- I love the idea of having a bunch of different saying, as @mholden suggested!

what do love and this candy have in common?
they both don’t suck!
(But luckily you can , so enjoy!)

Personally I think it is tad inappropriate and I have a great sense of humor. But I definately wouldn’t put that on as a label. I would just put a note thanking your guests and be done with it.

I think the “suck on this” is really funny but I also prefer the “Savor the Sweetness” that @abbie017: suggested.

Like a PP said above, you could mix it up and do a few different phrases with your jars.
What about going traditional with something like “Sweets for my sweets!”, “Sugar for my honeys!”?
I dunno…I’m terrible at wordplay. BUT, I definitely would keep the word “suck” out of it.

@lovebugfouts: I agree, I personally think its funny, but I could see something thinking I just paid X amount of dollars for a wedding gift and spent all day at your wedding and now youre telling me to “suck on this”…
