My fiancé and I love the game of Scrabble. How could we incorporate that into our wedding?

by DIY wedding planner on December 10, 2011

Any ideas for using Scrabble pieces at the wedding reception? What kinds of things could I make with the Scrabbble pieces to use at the wedding? I’m having a DIY wedding so I want to do something with the Scrabble pieces.

Get several of the cheap cardboard Scrabble games to play at the reception. As people leave they can take the games with them. Maybe you could even make sort of a tournament out of it and have a special or funny gift for the winner.

If you’re making your own cake spell out your names with Scrabble pieces on the cake. Or you could buy a pre-made cake and attach them too. Hot glue foil or wax paper to the back so the stain in the pieces won’t bleed into the frosting. If you’re using a tiered cake spread out the letters and/or words and get creative.

Have cupcakes &/or the cake with the scrabble pieces in the icing. Maybe have it spell out something if you’d like !? (:
& Try getting something that pertains to the wedding , custom made with the idea of the Scrabble theme In mind.
And , when you take the professional engagement/Wedding pictures, use the game as a prop, or something like that.
It’d be nice !

Centre pieces? Or place cards where you use the letters to spell out people names?

You could hot glue some together to make a staircase and top “landing” for a bride & groom cake topper to stand on. Glue tiles on a Scrabble board interlocking your names and words like love, wedding, mister, mrs, etc and hang it on the wall behind the gift table. Use large square cardboard (or craft foam in wedding colors?) and paint on “Mr. and Mrs. _____” (or just your first names), like Scrabble tile letters, punch a hole in the top of each and string across a long ribbon. Attach it to the front of your table at the reception. Maybe even with two “tiles” on each end saying “Double Score!” I also like the idea mentioned above about using travel Scrabble games as favors on tables. You could print a little tag for each that looks like a scorecard with both of your names and the wedding date. Another idea is to make square, flat cookies and ice them with tile letters spelling out your names and even make them with score numbers incorporating your wedding date. Place them at each setting. Oh…don’t forget: MARRIED is a 7-letter word!

You have gotten some good ideas here.

Perhaps stage a scrabble game in the works. The “game” could have the words like: Love, commitment, wedding, marriage, forever, honeymoon, bride, groom, rings, tuxedo, unity, future, honor, respect, loyalty….you get the picture. Set the game up and glue the pieces to the board and perhaps have letters set up in the tile holder for the next play.

Place this on the gift table or hang it on the wall. After wards, turn it into a shadow box to hang on your wall at home as a keepsake.

On the head table, glue the tiles for the words “Bride” and “Groom” on tile holders and use as your whimsical place cards.

As others stated, something done with tiles on the cake is a must!!

I am a huge scrabble fan and know my way around the scrabble board!!

- use them on your placecards
- for favors, make large Scrabble tile cookies with your initials and wrap them in cellophane
- have games set up around the room for playing or design your own HUGE Scrabble board for everyone to play on at once
- instead of a guestbook, have people write their wishes on the Scrabble gameboard, but glue your names and date tiles in the center for people to write around
- you could make napkin rings from florasatin ribbon and glue letters on them either randomly or in words
- use Scrabble-type fonts on your programs
- cupcakes with tiles on them
- a grooms cake that is an actual replica of a Scrabble board (so cool!)

Here are some pictures:;_ylt=AldPPHGU60TEcZdCFzm.D_2bvZx4?p=scrabble+cake&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-701;_ylt=A0PDoX52ZClO7lYAZPmJzbkF?p=scrabble+wedding&fr=yfp-t-701&ei=utf-8&n=30&x=wrt&y=Search

Good luck!!!

What a fun idea!

1. Instead of place cards, glue Scrabble pieces together to spell out names. (This is also a fun idea for Christmas ornaments!),r:17,s:0&tx=93&ty=81

2. Make your cake monogram out of Scrabble pieces.,r:19,s:0&tx=56&ty=36

3. Make napkin rings out of some ribbon or twine with the Scrabble piece for your last name initial on top.

4. Use images of Scrabble pieces on your save-the-dates or invitations. Maybe you could spell out, “{Brides’ name} and {Groom’s name}” in one direction and then the date in the other direction.,r:2,s:0

This website also has some neat ideas:

Are there any other games you like? If you two are just board game people, maybe you could incorporate more than one game. Just remember, a little goes a long way… too much will look cheesy.
