Our guests conspired against us to make us play the following games:

– Line up a bunch of male guests plus the groom.  With her eyes closed (can’t use a blindfold or the makeup will smudge!), the bride must touch each of their legs to guess which one is her groom’s.  

-Line up a bunch of female guests plus the bride.  With the groom’s eyes closed (or with a blindfold if available), the groom must touch each of their hands sans jewelry to guess which one is his bride’s.  My hubby’s brother actually sat in on this activity, which made the game super hilarious!

Other popular ideas include:

– photobooth

– interesting table names that will spur conversation

– candy buffet

We’re going to put out cards for a photo scavenger hunt.  I think the cards were originally meant for disposable cameras the bride and groom supply and collect at the end of the night, but we alterred the poem so people can use their own digitial cameras.  Plus, we’re hoping some of the photos the cards suggest will prompt people to perform these activities (like crazy dancing or telling us funnywedding advice)!

Anyway, you get the idea, and you can ask me if you want the template.

Mrs. Spring: this is a great idea! and a sneaky way to get pics the photographer misses! I wanted to have cameras for the guests to use but never thought of a cute way to get guests to use them. THANKS! 🙂

We’re having crossword puzzles with trivia about us, including instructions for guests to ask each other for help with the answers.

Miss Kitten (I thnk?) posted about quiz cards that looked really fun.  I believe they’re scattered around tables during cocktail hour.  🙂
