    @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.

    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.
