So I’m obsessed with film scores and I was thinking of using music from our favorite movies during the cocktail hour. They would be instrumentals that are suited for that subdued cocktail hour environment.
I thought maybe I could make a game out of it and have the tables try to figure out what movie the music is from, with the winning table getting some kind of prize. It would get people who don’t know eachother talking. Or should I leave the game part out?

I wouldn’t do it. Personally I don’t like this sort of “activities” at a social event. I just like to eat, chill, walk around.

Leave the game part out. It’s not really what people are looking to do at a wedding. If you’re worried about getting the conversation started, buy a couple boxes of “icebreaker” type cards and put a small pile on each table. Ccocktail tables too. We used these: http://www.tabletopics.com/

I would leave the game part out, especially during cocktail hour, people are usually mingling, chatting about the ceremony, etc. Games like that would probably work better later in the night.

I love the idea of playing film scores during your cocktail hour, but definitely scrap the game idea. It’s your wedding-not a carnival with games.

Another one for using the music and skipping the game.

Thanks! I’ll leave out the game. 🙂
