Dec 8, 2007
Being creative when deciding on wedding reception favors can help create a lively atmosphere. The wedding reception is a time for celebration of the new couple, so why not use a play on words to create unique wedding reception favors. The following list can help you come up with a play on words that will work for your wedding. After the list is an example to help give you an idea of how to do it.

1. Think of words associated with couples, marriage, weddings, love. Also think of variations on words, like pair and pear. Use a thesaurus to help you out. Make a list of these words.

2. Think of popular sayings or twists on the words on your list. Also write down any sayings that might convey the overall idea of couples and love. Write everything you think of down even if it seems crazy or useless. You may surprise yourself with how an off-the-wall idea can become perfect.

3. Try to edit each phrase or saying down to no more than five words. You may be wanting to use it on the favors and you want to keep the length to a minimum.

4. Choose your favorites and brainstorm different things that could represent the saying. For example, for the phrase " birds of a feather flock together" you could use feathers or birds or even flowers - birds of paradise. do not worry about being too practical just get the ideas out there.

5. Choose your favorite. Make it fit to your reception. Make sure the favors will be practical. Try to have the saying you use printed on the favors or somewhere at the reception so the guests are sure to get the joke.

The following is an examples of using a play on words to create great wedding reception favors.

Perfect Pear:

The idea here is the play on the word "pear/pair". You can use the image of pears to convey the idea. Silver pear shaped bells with "perfect pear" engraved on them along with the couples names and wedding date make for a nice favor. Another idea is marzipan pears served on small silver platters. If you are looking to have fun with the idea you can give tubs of pear flavored lip gloss. You can also tie this theme into the reception by serving pear dishes and decorating the room with pear theme favors.

As you can see there is a lot of fun in using a play on words to create your wedding reception favors. It may take some creative thought on your part, but the end result is well worth it. People will be talking about your unique wedding reception for a long time. Do not be surprised to see others copy your ideas. This is not only fun, but creates a great conversation piece for your guests. Plays on words are all around, so think hard and get to work on those great wedding reception favors. It is more important than you think when you need to choose the perfect unique wedding reception favors.
