@gm234:  Games people can play at the tables. Like madlibs or trivia about the bride and groom. Or something that each guest would fill out to put into a guestbook.

@gm234:  Anything besides multiple toasts and drawn out speeches… ugh.

in all honesty i think guests are happy enough with eating, drinking socialising and maybe a bit of dancing. dont think games or anything else needed or wanted

Drinking?  LOL.  But really – aren’t most parties just eating, drinking, and talking?  Please don’t make me feel obligated to play stupid games like I’m at a 6-year-old’s birthday party.

Most guests are happy to eat, drink, mingle and dance.  We’re going to have some advice mad libs on the guest book table and a photo scavenger hunt.  That way guests that wish to participate can and those who don’t won’t have to watch or listen to an activity they have no interest in.

@gm234: I believe that you don’t even need to have dancing to have a lovely reception. People like to socialize and with food, alcohol and place to sit, they will do that naturally!

We held our 4 hour reception at a local restaurant and didn’t have any dancing or games. I agree with other Bees – our family and friends were really happy just to eat, drink, and hang out with each other.
