So I am just wondering what you guys think about name tags at a bridal shower??? If the bride and grooms family really don’t know each other do you think it would:
a) Make it easier for people to mingle and be more comfortable having some idea who is who
b) people are adults and they know how to mingle and can introduce themselves and no on likes wearing them
Thoughts please 🙂

@missstarling: I don’t think it’s necessary. People can introduce themselves to others. Name tags remind me of work-related activities. I definitely wouldn’t want those sticky paper name tags to be on everyone’s pretty outfits.
Also, you might want to add a poll to this question in order to get more responses

Wow I am glad that I asked! I mentioned it to my mom and she seemed to think it was really tacky! but we got a large group comming and I don’t know all of FI family that well and I was alittle scare about forgetting names!

I think if you do it, it has to be done is a really cute way that maybe ties into your wedding theme. Like the person’s first name and underneath (FI’s aunt)

@missstarling: I don’t care for name tags at social events. It gives off an awkward work convention or speed dating vibe.

I’m in the minority it seems – I don’t mind them, but I’m a bit awkward & not awesome with strangers. I also think they can be ok if done well and maybe suits the theme of the event…

I had them for the shower I hosted for my friend. No one knew anyone else. I made them myself with two line. .. name and then “I know the bride from” fill in the blank. It was a fun way to know names and show relationship to the bride. I got clip on tags to not ruin anyones clothes.

@Kiznym: I like this idea! I think it might make for a good icebreaker!

I hate name tags with a passion. I had to wear them for my FH’s family reunion, and they wrote notes on it as to who I was ‘connected’ with. I was not down for that nonsense.
But I am curmudgeonly and disagreeable about things like this. Honestly though, name tags make me think of work events and places I desperately don’t want to be at, where I have to socialise with people I wouldn’t normally exchange two words with, rather than fun happy events.
