I LOVE having the chance to win a prize or giveaway. It is just so fun to me. I love the idea of having fun little things for my guests to ‘win’ during our reception…but I don’t know exactly how to set up these things.
For instance, I thought it would be fun for certain tables to have the chance to win a bottle of champagne to share among the table.
Have you bees had any experiences with giveaways at weddings?
I bought a book on reception games, but they were really just games (not neccessarily easy ‘chance’ or ‘luck’ things). thoughts???
***EDITED to ADD: ***
I want these to be minimally invasive. I am shy and hate to do active-participation things. I just want these to be games of luck or chance. So all ideas welcome!!

My Maid/Matron of Honor did this at her wedding and it was so much fun!! They did it immediately following their ceremony (ceremony and reception were in the same location). They asked questions to the guests about themselves and their relationship ect and gave away little things that they like. It was REALLY fun!

I wouldn’t do it personally as I know it wouldn’t go down well in my crowd…..but I have been to a wedding that did something similar. It worked like a treat and created lots of atmosphere!!!
They did a whole series of games. It was lots of fun.

What kind of competitions would you do?.. I’m thinking of giving out presents for the Best Hat / Best Dancer etc… however I can only think of a few..
What are your ideas?
