You may be better off with “hello, my name is” stickers. I don’t think it’s cold. You could decorate them with wedding stickers or get different colored pens in your wedding colors. Maybe pre-write names and their relationships to you/FI and tell everyone to pick theirs up at the dinner when they get there.

That is much less expensive, less time intensive, serves the same purpose, and everyone can wear whatever they want. I’d have a hard time getting my mom to wear a Mother of the Bride t-shirt, and she would never get to wear it again (except maybe around the house)

I would just go with just introducing everyone to one another. Simpler and doesn’t require nametags. 🙂

I would just introduce one another. People have been to parties and social gatherings before where they don’t know everyone. They can do it here too.

I’d just rely on normal introductions and mingling. I don’t really think nametags or shirts are necessary.

How many guests do you expect at the rehearsal? It could be fun to design and have printed a sort of “facebook” for everyone (if you have nice photos of everyone)! A nice photo plus a sweet blurb about that person. Would be a cute conversation starter, a nice keepsake, and help everyone remember names! A good old fashioned “family tree” (more chic of course) could also work! You could have it printed and framed at the entrance.

Have fun!

Could you play a fun game to introduce everyone.  I am planning on doing a game for everyone at my rehersal.  Maybe you could somehow tie that into introducing everyone. Like  a scavenger hunt sort of thing or bingo?

I think you’re over thinking it. Everyone that’s there will realize its time to meet everyone else. I’d stick to your typical mingling and introductions.
