@NekoBride:  could you have a dinner or lunch the day before? at the lunch or dinner play a game like a trivia game where guests have to be in small teams and ask questions about the bride and groom and then they have to work as a team to come up with answers ……… obviously they have to go team up with someone thay haven’t met before πŸ™‚

You sure are in a pickle!

I really like @lollyQ ‘s suggestion that would help a lot for the day of you know? 

As for a reception activity my FI’s nephew and his wife had there DJ do “Which family is crazier?” activity, it was a lot of fun! 

He would ask questions such as, “Who is crazier at the zoo?” and family members and friends would raise their shoes in responce, whoever got the most shoes would win for the “craziest family” in that category. 

The questions were random, funny and even if you’re family has never done anything crazy at a zoo before you can still guess which family would be crazy at the zoo if they had a chance. It’s almost like the game “Guess who?” 

And if the people who have a hard time speaking English doen’t quite get the jist of the game they will see people raising their shoes up in the air and can just participate that way, I am sure they will be laughing no matter what because that is what others will be doing. 


I hope this was helpful!

How about a nighttime beach scavenger hunt with teams the night before, after dinner? It could be fun and helps people get to know each other. Heads up, provide flashlights πŸ™‚ also make sure the list includes the items in everyone’s language!
