@jenilynevette:  There was another bee on here that had a kissing menu.  Basically, if the guests wanted to see them kiss they would have to sing a song, or quote something.

@jenilynevette:  our dj has a list of a few different options; clinking the glass, animal sounds, hula hooping, or singing a song with the word love in it. I have no idea which one we are gonna go with..

I find that the “Kissing On Demand” thing quickly deteriorates into a Bride & Groom vs the Guests situation…after a few cocktails and dinner, we, as guests are anxious to make you, the Bride & Groom, regret ever giving us this kind of power… and we will do this one of three ways…

1.  By waiting until one of you is literally across the room, start mooing or whatever the hell you said to do if we wanted you to kiss, watch in amazed horror as one of you leaps and bounds across the hall which has become an obstacle course of waiters, centerpieces, small children and your Aunt Ida’s shoes…only to crash into each other, breathless, pissed of and possibly covered in Hollandaise sauce sporting a sprained ankle.

2.  By hooting and hollering every time that you do kiss to the point where you and your new spouse suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for three months after the reception every time you even THINK about kissing….

3.  By demanding satisfaction in the event of a kissing failure, because we totally waited until one of you was in the bathroom, along the lines of virgin sacrifice, cake toss event or champagne flute relay race…

I advocate every bride do as she likes at her wedding and reception, but do so, informed!

@jenilynevette:  As a guest, I would probably be more interested in the whole thing if there was some sort of reward in case of failure to kiss….pie the guest of your choice…a gift basket…dance with the bride or groom…something, I mean, as far as a game goes, it kinda sucks for the guests…we get nothing for winning…that might be a way to spice it up, even with bells.

@MrsWBS:  Same. It’s ridiculous, but maybe I’ve just been to too many weddings where guests are obnoxious with the clinking/ringing/etc. Yuck.

I do like the menu posted above, though.

I’ve been to quite a few weddings where you had to sing a song with “kiss” or “love” in it.  One of the more creative ones was to recite a nursery rhyme parody about the bride and groom… it produced some pretty funny ones, and required enough thought that only a handful of people did it, or a whole table would collaborate on one.
