So Mrs. Kitten posted her idea about this a while ago. Moo cards let you print a different “image” on one side and the same image on the reverse side. I want to make these cute cards to have sitting around for our cocktail hour. We have a mixed crowd, I hope it stirs up converstation!
So, I was hoping the hive could help me come up with some good trivia questions that I can use. I want to stick to trivia about Tallahassee (where we are from), FSU (where I go to school), Melbourne/Indialantic (where the wedding is, and where I grew up) and the Brevard Zoo (reception venue). Also, any general wedding trivia could be fun. A few questions I have so far:
- What is the population of Tallahassee?
- How many animals are in the Brevard Zoo?
- What is our dogs name?
- What breed is our dog?
- What is the FSU mascot?

I was inspired by Mrs. Kitten’s trivia cards & made them too! I did some searches online for wedding trivia, however a bunch of ours were tirivia about us, like what is our favorite holiday? What is FI’s favorite movie? Where did we get engaged? ect…
We put a few on every table & had some at the bar. We actually made 4 copies of about 50 questions. They turned out pretty nice! I made them in colors matching our scheme.

How about old wedding tradition questions? Or little “did you know…” one-liners.
A wedding I went to found the origins of old funky traditions like how wedding favors used to be slices of cake given to the ladies. They were supposed to go home and put the cake under their pillows and dream of their future husband that night. Okay, I may have totally jacked that one up but we read those at the table and were all immediately thrown into conversation about how some of the old stuff just doesn’t make sense anymore.
Or how about a question with a specific numeral answer and the guest who guesses closest wins a prize? For example there is a tree at our ceremony location that is like 1326 years old (according to the forest service). Folks could guess how old it is and the closest person could win a frame or whatever.
If it’s for cockail hour, maybe you could ask wine/beer/liquor questions? Like how many grapes it takes to make a bottle of wine? Or what year the first margarita was made.
What’s your theme? Mine might be candy (I LOVE sweets). You could ask when people think Twizzlers/your fave candy were first made. I’m Chinese and he is Czech, so it would be funny to ask how many pounds of candy per capita the Chinese eat compared to the Czechs. Or if you have a flower theme, ask how many varieties of roses currently exist or how long it takes to breed a new color of calla lilies.
I know these are random but maybe they will help? If you can incorportate other wedding day elements into your questions (a question tied to your flowers, or the favors, or the background of the guests), I think it would look really tied together and professional!

I’m planning on doing something similar and attaching fun facts to the favors or escort cards or somewhere…maybe cocktail hour would be a better idea though. You could look up some old timey wedding traditions:
Italians give out candied almonds to signify the sweetness and bitterness of marriage. They give out 5, and each one means something, but I forget what exactly.
Until Queen Victoria wore a white dress, royalty always wore a silver dress and peasants just wore their best dress whatever the color.
The reason the groom & groomsmen stand on the left is so they could draw their swords easily if they had to fight the bride’s family
You can also include stories about you and FI. I know if I included a story that included my grandmother she would be so excited!
