Put really pretty bells at each table – – they have to ring the bell!?!?!?

EDIT = this idea might be totally lame….since its up I don’t want to delete it though, HAHAHHAHAHAAHAAHAAHAA

I have seen the bells. People did it a lot at the beginning of the reception but then it slowed once everyone started eating and dancing.

I guess I’ve never been to a wedding where they had a “thing” to get the couple to kiss.  Warning though, my sister said at her friend’s wedding the bells got so annoying she was ready to get the hell out of the reception at the end of the night 😉

I was at a wedding where as guests, we had to sing a song as a table with the word “love” in it, and it was a blast! It was awesome to get together as a table (especially if you aren’t that familiar with the other people at your table) and to come up with fun songs with the word “love” in it. You could even do it with the word “kiss” which would probably be trickier!

At my uncle’s wedding, guests were required to get up on stage and sing a song with the word “Love” in it before the couple would kiss.  We are a musical family, but it might actually cut down on the amount of kissing due to embarassment!

It’s fun though because everyone can think of one song and our smaller cousins got up and sang the Barney song, which sounds annoying, but was very cute from the small kids.

A friend of mine also did the bells. She used them as her seating card holders too though…I think the novelty wears off after a while.

We are huge sports fans so I am thinking about ordering thunder sticks. (the blow up sticks you get at sporting events) I’m gonna have our names and wedding date printed on them, and drape them over the backs of the chairs for guests to blow up and use 🙂

The other day on SMP I saw someone who made those ribbon wands and put them in a jar that said “Wave for a Kiss”.   At least that would be quieter than bells! 

I once also saw a kissing tree.  Kind of a similar idea as the singing, guest go over to the tree and choose a slip of paper that is attached and perform some action to get the bride and groom to kiss.

Oh boy..we ordered cute little bells with that common phrase about “Ring the bell for a kiss for a lifetime of marital bliss….”  Now after reading all your comments, I’m not so excited about this. Oh well! If the bells become super annoying I’ll just ask the DJ to play the music louder!!

I love the idea of having all the tables sing. I just don’t that many people coming would want to participate-otherwise I would definately do that!

I was at a wedding where the tables sang a song and it was absolutely hilarious… People still talk about it as one of the best parts of the reception (and this was even one of the craziest weddings i have ever been to!)  I would highly recommend it since everyone got way involved and had a blast!

i would do it myself but my future brother-in-law had it as his wedding and since we will have many of the same guests i want to come up with something more creative

My friend’s wedding had three options:

1) Sing a song with “love” in it

2) Hula hoop for ten seconds

3) Put any amount of money in a “Newlywed Fund” jar to help the happy couple start off married life with a little extra cash.

The emcee, while explaining these options after the first people started clinking their glasses, demonstrated all three at once 🙂

I went to one wedding where you had to show them how it was done. So you had to go to the front of the room near the head table and kiss someone (your signifant other etc) and the bride and groom would have to copy your kiss. So if you give you SO a peck the bride and groom would give each other a peck.
