Hmm..sounds like fun…But I photograph a ton of weddings a year, and I’ve never seen anyone do stuff like this at weddings.  I’ve seen DJ’s interact with the guests at weddings, but not to this extreme.  I don’t see this going too far or being a big hit, And if I were a guest, I would probably laugh and not participate.  sorry.

@shelbeysweet:  I’m sure you know your guests, but I would get crickets if I tried anything like this.

As a lady who would show up to a wedding in dress and heels, there is not a chance I would be running around like a child at a picnic begging strangers for a lipstick and then racing to get a chair. 

I suspect you will get mainly children participating (if you are having kids at your wedding).

I think as long as you allow people to opt out it should be fun. I would not participate but that just me I’m sure you have guest who will want to and those who will not.

As a previous poster said (you know your guests (but I would have no interest in participating. I have never been to a wedding that involved games.

I think it sounds neat! Im sure there will be some people game to play.

The last wedding I went to had a scavenger hunt for the kids and I can’t lie, I was ready to jump right on in!!

We’re having an outdoors lunch reception and we’re choosing to do lawn games. We’re DIYing all the games (giant jenga, twister, giant x’s and o’s, and ring toss) in our wedding colours of blush, ivory, and light gold. We wanted to include games at our reception, but not put pressure on our guests to participate. This way they can go over to the games if they want (I think it’ll be mainly our cousins and younger guests) and they aren’t forced to particiapte. I think as long as you allow people to opt out then it’ll be fine. I really hate games like musical chairs where the spotlight is on me, so I wouldn’t participate (especially at a wedding), but you know your guests best and I’m sure they’ll have a great time.
