As a quick last minute project (wedding is in a month), i’m going to print out some questions like 5-8 to put in a small silver bucket at each table. They would be questions that the table can answer together if they choose, which i thought may be a good way to pass an idle time and a way to get everyone talking if they don’t know each other. If people don’t do it, no biggie. I just need an idea of what questions to “ask.” Preferably ones that could lead to funny answers. So far I have
What should the bride and groom name their dog when they get one?
What should a wife never say to a husband?
What should a husband never say to a wife?
Where should the bride and groom go on their first anniversary?
Any other ideas? Thanks!

I’ve heard of things like this at a bridal shower, but not a wedding, Good luck!

I don’t know, I think your guests will have plenty to keep them occupied. I know you said they don’t have to answer, but it just seems best to let them eat, dance and enjoy the reception without having to do little ‘projects’.

“What’s your best dance move?”

Your guests will be drinking and eating with ppl, at least 1 or more of whom they know, they won’t need any ice breakers to get through a 2 hour meal. It’ll just be a waste of your time fully.

Some of our really good friends love the game of things. At their wedding they did a spin off of that game. At each place setting there was a half of sheet of paper with questions written (like what you are asking) and a pen. They said those were awesome! The responses were things everyone at a table could answer. They left the cards out all night and they definitely got more entertaining as the night went on.

I have never seen that done… I’ve seen it where each table has a trivia question, and if you know the answer you have to go up to the podium. If you get the answer right, the bride and groom kiss.
That might make it more fun for the guests.

Just break out a bunch of Cards Against Humanity. That ought to make things interesting.

I had a trifold with the menu on one side, info on the wedding party on anther and then a little quizz about the bride and groom – the answers where either “bride” or “groom” nd I had the answer key on the bottom. I heard after the wedding that people really liked it as many didn’t know all the people at the table – was a great little ice breaker.

I don’t know if we will do trivia about the bride and groom at the tables. (I have nothing against games at the tables, and I am a trivia nut!). But one thing we are planning on doing is a kind of “game” about the guests who are attending. We just figured out that we will have all continents (other than Antarctica) represented at our wedding, so we will put a page on each table to see if by the end of the night our guests can figure out who represents each continent.
