If you were offered a cute little crossword puzzle when entering/being seated for the ceremony, along side the program, would you think it tacky?
I thought it would be cute to do a "The New Mr. & Mrs." themed crossword puzzled handed out on cardstock (2 to an 8.5×11" page, trimmed, of course). It would give folks something to do as they wait and it would be fun and DIFFERENT.
Setting: Fall wedding, outdoors on the property of a B&B. No more than 85-90 guests.
What do you think? Too weird?
P.S. The clues are of the bride of groom, of course.

Fun idea, but if your guests are anything like me, they’ll be running late! Unfortunately, I never have much time before the ceremony to just wait. What if the guests don’t stop when the ceremony starts — would you be offended to look out and see people not paying attention? (I noticed a lot of day-dreamers during my ceremony…)
You could definitely leave the puzzles in the center of the tables during dinner… perfect for killing the time between courses or starting conversation among table guests.

Is it "you"? If I got that at most weddings, I would think it was odd but I am sure there are occassions where I would think "This is so like Punkin to do something like this!". Agree with Mrs. Pomegrante on the downside – do you want people looking at it during the ceremony? If people have to wait, hopefully they will socialize!

I think something like that would be more appropriate for brunch the morning after. I’d be too distracted with something like that in front of me during the ceremony.

Cool, that’s exactly what I needed to hear.
Thanks, ladies. Maybe I’ll put a few on the tables during the reception. It’s a buffet and they will be waiting as tables are called up.

If you have kids coming to the reception, ‘wordsearch’ or word jumble sheets would be fun too (words like ‘bride’ ‘groom’ ‘kiss’ ).
