This sounds like a great idea!  Altho, with some alcohol and mad libs, you could get some interesting responses.

Based on your other posts on WB, I’m assuming I can be honest with you and you won’t think I’m being “snarky”…

I saw this at a wedding about 2 years ago.

I didn’t do it.

Why? Because I’m lazy and didn’t want to take 10 minutes to fill the damn thing out. And I just wanted a glass of wine and some food–I didn’t want to “think” about what to write for Mad Libs. And I don’t like word games (never have..I hate crossword puzzles too!).

Apparently most people didn’t fill it out or didn’t fill it out properly and the bride was pissed.

What about having cards that people can write regular messages to you both and also have the Mad Libs? That way the people who don’t want to do the Mad Libs can still write you a message, and you can use both for the scrapbook.

I would have to be very bored to fill this out at a wedding and I usually like puzzles and that type of thing but not at a wedding though. A reception is a basically a party, people are in their party mode and dont want to spend time “thinking and writing” puzzles at a party.

Why don’t you just put them on the tables everyones place setting? Have a traditional guest book and then have this as a little extra. Have a box on the table for people to put them when they are done. If I was sittign down waiting for the party to start, I’d totally do this. I think it’s adorable!

My friends did a MadLib on their RSVP cards and the majority of people filled them out and they got so many compliments on how fun they were.  They included the noun, adverb, verb, etc on the cards and some people filled in serious advice while others filled in silly advice while still a few others did it like a true MadLib (asked another person for random words and just plugged them in).

That said – I would never fill one out while at a wedding reception.  I’m going to be up dancing, eating, drinking, and socializing – not filling out a puzzle/card.

I’m going to do mad libs for our RSVPs and then hang them on a twine clothesline by the bar for people to read what others wrote in. I’m hoping that we get some good participation! Good luck!

I went to one where we did this at the couple’s shower. I liked it better in this atmosphere, considering the wedding reception was more formal. This way, they kind of got both the funny (from the shower) and the “serious” (from the wedding.) I prob wouldn’t have filled them out at the wedding either, but at the shower I was game.
