- Wedding: August 2012
An idea was sparked by another bride’s post recently on having cultural elements involving a bit of a scavenger hunt and it inspired me – but I need your feedback first.
Our wedding is being held at a campsite, on a lake. We haven’t quite figured out where exactly the ceremony will take place but there are ample hiking trails and vistas along the way (everybody has been asked to wear flats for comfort). We are incredibly goofy so I started thinking this morning that it would be really funny if me and BM’s kept the location a secret and then created a groom’s scavenger hunt to be held at the basecamp. Basically, we would pick 10 (maybe less?) people out of our guests who would hold cards that have a poem with clues that would lead him to look for me, finding me with my father (maybe my MOH) in our location on the trail that us girls choose. The hunt itself could be really quick and obvious, around 15 minutes, and the point of the cards/poems would be to allow the groom to pick people based on personal stories he’s never heard before (like that someone was a war vet, or used to train monkeys in college, someone sings in a choir, etc).
I thought it would be fun since waiting for a ceremony to start is typically kind of boring for guests and this would be a neat ice breaker for both of our familes. Too complicated for guests?
