depending if your wedding is formal or casual, maybe put a bunch of games/cards out or create a crossword puzzle with clues related to you and Fiance that people can do. If you have kids, print off some coloring pages and buy small packs of crayons…Or i’ve seen a cute thing on pinterest for the kids where you have blank cards with crayons and a tag that says “create a card for the bride and groom”

Could you supply enough champagne for everyone? I’d be cool with no cocktail hour but just some champagne and mingling.  I wouldn’t worry about thinking too hard about games, etv. I don’t think it will be utilized.

I think if it’s only 15-30 mins that people can easily just mingle.  What about offering non alcoholic drinks? Like a punch? 

We have an hour gap between ceremony and the cocktail hour.  were on a farm so we are offering a farm tour and if it rains, were putting our some board games.  If people want to, they can always drive  nearby for a coffee….Ive done this at quite a few weddings before.

Seems like such a short amount of time… maybe you could have a video and project it on the wall for people to watch, even if its just a background to mingling (just some additional passive form of entertainment)? You could film something with your FH, giving a tour of your town, or in some way related to what you do (DH and I are musicians, so I guess that makes more sense than, say, a lawyer). Or if you’re both into the same comedian or something, you could put together a compliation of his greatest bits. Those are the only ideas I have…

You could do a fun guest book that takes people a little time like this one –

We are going to have a poker table, and maybe blackjack tables for social hour to pass the time.

I think your guests should be able to handle themselves for 30 minutes of pictures… But maybe some punch would be nice?
