@lovelynners:  We’re thinking of doing kissing wands with streamers and little bells.  I don’t want people clinking the glasses and our crowd isn’t really the sort that would respond well to a game.

If I don’t provide something, the guests will clink the glasses (They do at every single wedding I’ve ever been to) and I don’t want to have to pay for any broken glasses if someone hits it too hard. So we’re going to put one bell on every table.

@lovelynners:  I went to a wedding where the couple made people get up and tell a joke if they wanted them to kiss. It was fun. 

I saw another idea where guests had to come up and kiss and then the bride & groom would imitate the kiss! I think that could get out of hand, but it pretty funny.

Another idea was to flip a coin. If it was heads, the bride & groom kissed. If tails- the guest had to kiss someone. 

Personally, my Mexican family will just be chanting “Beso!” all night. I may or maynot listen to them.

@MagPie0829:  I feel the EXACT same way. How the idea ever got started that the bride and groom would want to be interrupted throughout the night when trying to spend time with dear family and friends (many of which they don’t see often) by “forced” PDA at their own event I will never know. Different strokes to different folks, but I plan on politely declining the first attempt (should it happen — I don’t really see our circle being the types to try it anyway) and then hoping it doest happen again….

@lovelynners: Is this question for your wedding or a wedding you’re attending as a guest? If it’s for you and you want this, thats great and i hope you find a creative way you like. But if it’s for others I think I’d want to confirm that the couple for sure wants this. I would be especially perturbed if someone brought a “creative” way of doing this to my wedding without running it by me first!!

Hmmm I may actually tell my wedding planner to be on the look out and be ready to gently discourage this practice if needed just in case. It would really annoy me.

@MagPie0829:  often around here, not agreeing with the OP or majority and/or using any words that have a remotely negative connotation can get you branded rude. I wouldn’t worry about it — isn’t the whol point of coming here to read many different opionions and spark thought you may not have otherwise had? At least that’s what I come here for. But then again I don’t get personally offended when people don’t agree with me.

The OP even said “Or none at all?” imply she is open to responses that may include feedback from the side that isn’t into the kissing game stuff.

One wedding I went to required a donation to their favorite charity for them to kiss. At one point the grandfather did a donation to make our friend, the brother of the bride, kiss his girlfriend who was a bridemaid. Another wedding I went to made you answer a quiz question about the bride and groom. I’ve also seen where you have to stand up and kiss your significant other before the bride and groom would kiss. FI (who was my boyfriend at the time) and I spent the whole night arguing with my aunts and uncles refusing to do it.

@lovelynners:  To actually answer your question…I had a friend who put 2 bells on each table with a cute poem attached.  I can’t remember the poem exactly, but it basically let people know that if they ring it, they kiss and take the bell from you. Not many people actually ring the bells anyway!

We are having a “kissing menu” at every table with 5 different ideas for them to do to get us to kiss…a few of them are risky/embarrassing so I know they won’t be done.  We were just thinking of ideas to get us interrupted less. 😉
