    Eh, I think that would be kind of weird. People can introduce themselves.

    No, I would not wear one. It’d feel like an awkward work thing or convention.

    I think it’s pretty creepy when people can walk up to you and be like “Well helloooo (glances down and stares at chest) MadTownGirl! Great wedding huh?!” so my vote is no.

    NOOOOOO way.  I hate, hate, HATE nametags and would NOT wear one!

    Everyone will have nice clothes on and you will have them stick or pin something to their outfits?!  No way!!!

    Noooooo.  I would definitely not do nametags.  I feel like it would give it a strange “work function” feel.

    If you want to mix things up between the sides, an easier way would be to arrange the seating chart accordingly πŸ™‚

    Haha. I would personally never do it! And I think I would feel odd attending one that did. I totally understand the logic of it, but it seems a little cheesy to me. Too much like a high school reunion or some sort of awkward dating function. I think you should just let guests mingle amongst each other and get to know one another that way πŸ™‚

    I would not like it if a guest handed me a name tag.  I’m not going to be hanging out with people I don’t know at a wedding anyway!

     

    But–keep going with the crazy wine-induced ideas!  It could lead to something πŸ˜‰

    Nope, no one wants to stick or pin something on nice clothing. People are more than capable of being introduced to eachother w/o the weird “Hello, my name is…” sticky. Chances are, no one would wear them anyways.

    It’s a really thoughtful thought on your part, but as a guest, I wouldn’t want to wear one. I hate wearing nametags even at functions when you really should, and I definitely wouldn’t want to wear one at a wedding.

    Firstly, I wouldn’t want to get dressed up and then have to put a name tag on, secondly, I would expect people to introduce themselves or be introduced by shared aquaintances.

    I’d say no, too. I think if you’re having assigned seating a lot of people will get to know each other at their table or while talking and dancing. I think having name tags feels too much like a work event or convention or something. Once people have a glass or two of wine I’m sure they’ll open up and introduce themselves πŸ™‚
