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!

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. Smile

@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”…
