I heard of this maybe once before, and I thought it was such a cute idea I knew I wanted to do it. For anyone that doesn’t get what I mean, I just want to place a little card at everyone’s seats with a little quiz about the bride and groom. I think it would be a good conversation starter and everyone might get a kick out of it!I’m trying to come up with a couple fun questions and I’m stumped – mostly because I don’t want them to be so hard that no one can guess at all! This is all I have:
What year did Mr and Mrs mee/ or how long have they been together?
How did Mr propose?
What questions would you put on your quiz?

What is Mr’s Middle Name
What is Mrs’s Middle Name
Where did they go on their first date?
Where are they going on their honeymoon?

I wouldn’t, it seems like a pretty dumb idea. I’m a grown woman, I don’t need to be “quizzed” when I’m at a formal event.

I don’t think it is a “dumb” idea, I just question why it is needed. Are we at such an attention defecit point that guests have to be entertained with quizzes to keep them involved? I honestly believe that just attending your wedding should be enough without the extra stimulus needed. It just seems a bit gimmicky to me, and not what the wedding is really about.

Maybe instead of a quiz you could put random awesome facts about you two or things people noramlly wouldnt know about you! Almost like the surprise of a Snapple top! And you can repeat them, they all dont have to be different or the same!

In my experience, I’ve been quizzed at showers before, but not the wedding!
However, I heard from a friend who attended a wedding where if a table wanted the bride/groom to kiss the MC asked them a question about the bride, groom or them as a couple 🙂 and someone at the table had to know the answer for them to kiss.

@Yankee Fan Bride: While I agree, she wasnt asking our opinions on weather or not she should do it. She was asking for question suggestions.

@Yankee Fan Bride: I don’t know, Fiance and I both really like games and trivia and I thought it would be a nice way to incorporate that. I’ve seen weddings with crossword puzzles and I think theyre great!
@Belle2Be: quiz was maybe the wrong word to use, more like trivia. It’s not like you’re being graded on it.
@CupCakeMeg: This is a good idea too, thanks! 🙂

I think this is a totally fun idea.
I was thinking about making Trivial Pursuit style cards for our tables (I am a Trivial Pursuit junkie…I own like 8 different editions). We have to kill some time in between the wedding and reception because Fiance refuses to have a first look and the wedding and reception are at the same place.
I plan on doing the categories off of the original Trivial Pursuit game: geography (blue), entertainment (pink), history (yellow), arts and literature (brown), science and nature (green), and sports and leisure (orange).
I’m thinking about these as some of the questions:
Geography: What city was button/fi’s college in?
Entertainment: Who is button and fi’s favorite comedy team?
History: How old were button and fi when they first met?
Arts and Literature: I could probably come up with 1000 questions for this category because I have two degrees in literature. The easiest one would be “What does button have her college degrees in?”
Science and nature: still working on this one, but Fiance is a chef, so something related to cooking and science.
Sports and leisure: What sport were button and fi participating in when they met?

@buttontoes: yay! another trivia fanatic. These are all awesome I love this idea! I came up with the “how old were they when they met” but I felt like i had to scrap it because our relationship bordered on illegal when we first met, lol! (16 and 19, nothing heinous :D)

I have played something similar to this at bridal showers…. but I also read about something like this at a rehearsal dinner, a bonding way to bring the two families together… give them something to have in common. Two teams or something and questions … someone reading the questions. That way both families get to know each other.
I like the idea of doing it at the wedding too!

One sort of ‘get to know you’ we did in college was a game where you had the facts and someone else was that person. Maybe you can make little cards, some with questions and some with the answers, and the guests can get to know one another while trying to find their ‘match’ at the table. You can give them one card that just has multiple Qs and As on it to prevent clutter.
I think the trivia thing is fun, and good conversation starter. Maybe other Qs like favorite sports team, best date ever, worst date ever, etc etc. Just silly little things that those who may not know your birthplace like Auntie Kay can still make up funny answers and get in on the chit chat.

I was going to try to do something about the guests at that particular table. Some of us will be attending weddings where we don’t know a bunch of people or just aren’t the dancing / social types. Gives those people something to do. I’d do some multiple choice questions where the most ridiculous answers are the right ones. That might be interesting. you could start by making a list of interesting things about each other (separately and as a couple) and pulling from there.

@katsupgirl: ah i like that one! Multiple choice is a lot easier on everyone as well, I bet we could come up with some funny stuff. Thanks!
