its a wisconsin tradition that the guests can instigate mandatory kissing just by clinking silverware against their drink glasses.  or to put a bit more of a creative twist on it, I attended a wedding where the couple had to kiss every time a table-full of guests stood up and sang a song with “love” in the lyrics … that led to a lot of laughs and general good humor at the tables while guests tried to come up with songs that hadn’t been used yet.  and it was pretty funny to have impromptu karaoke versions of love songs sung by semi-sober friends and relatives!

I was in a wedding once where the DJ had a list of all couples who would be in attendance… so every time the masses “clinked” their glasses at the bride and groom, the DJ would announce the names of a couple on the list and ask THEM to stand up and kiss.  The bride and groom had to “mimic” the type of kiss the couple did. (it was super cute- some people really got into it and “dipped” their partner, others kissed on the cheek, I was across the room from my FI when our names came up so we the whole slow-motion movie type deal where we skipped over to each other with our arms apart and he swung me around and planted a quick kiss) 

This worked out really well… it took some of the attention off a shy bride and groom, made for a LOT of laughs before the dancing started, and discouraged the “non stop clinkers”

Ugh, I’m dreading the clinking of the glasses! I’ve never been to a wedding where guests have clinked at least 10-15 times. It gets so old. 

I like @noodlefish’s twist on it, though!

A wedding I went to did little bells on the tables.  They were really tiny which was nice because it wasn’t as loud as the “clinking”

I love noodlefish‘s comment! That’s fun and incorporates the guest into the wedding. I’m all about that!

This probably won’t apply to you, but my good friend is getting married this August and is placing “duck calls” at everyone’s setting.  Instead of clinking glasses, we’ll be using duck calls.  Haha  Her theme is a “woodsy-hunter-camo”-y though, so it totally works.

I like noodlefish’s idea too.  I might have to incorporate the kissing couple thing for my reception too.  πŸ™‚

I went to a wedding once where couples had to stand up, kiss, and the Bride and Groom had to imitate them.  It was pretty funny when the Grandparents start doing dips or passionate kisses, and they have to copy them! It made for an interesting night! πŸ™‚

I’m totally using the couples kissing thing at mine… as soon as my friend came back from her honeymoon, she had an email saying

 

“can I steal your kissing game???

_ yes! πŸ™‚

_ no! πŸ™

_ or maybe :/

 

She actually said it was her DJ’s idea. It worked out really well. If anyone tries it out before Nov. report back! lol πŸ™‚

It seems as though I am in the minority, but I just saw the title and had to open this post right away because I cringed. I was at my cousins wedding where they did a kissing game of like some of the bees mentioned. This was 10 years ago and it still is disturbing. People are still talking about this and not in a good way. So I would just judge your guest first. But pulling couple up to make out in front of the guests so the bride and groom can immitate them was definetly not the way to go at least with the wedding that I went to. Please think carefully about this.

I think denverbirdlets idea is actually really cute.

Since we are both golfers we are setting up a ramp with a golfball hole in it. We will have a couple putters on hand and some colored golf balls (To match our theme). Whenever anyone gets a hole-in-one we will kiss (and they can make a little speech if they want).

Oh my cousin did one where if you told a story about the bride or groom (or them together) then they would kiss. It was fun to hear all the crazy childhood stories and sweet memories from their friends and family!

I’m not a fan of the “Kiss Mimicing” one since I have been to two wedding that did it. In one the guy licked the girls face and put his tongue up her nose (gross, and yes they mimicked). Then in the second one the girl simulated giving the guy a “fun time” by repeadtedly kissing his pants in that area while pulling her head back everytime. It was SO inappropriate and disgusting. Luckily the DJ cracked a joke and that ended the game.
