Ice Breaker Games for AHR?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Just wondering if all you wonderful creative ladies might be able to help me out with some ideas for ice-breaker games at our AHR?

I am thinking of playing some games to get our guests more into the party mood and mingle a bit more with eachother.

We're having a beach/tropical/Jamaica theme so it would be really great if I could think of a game to incorporate the theme, I am thinking something involving Bob Marley songs, or maybe making someone wear a rastafarian hat.... any ideas?

This isn't Bob Marley or hats BUT I use to play this game as an ice breaker in high school. You break people up into groups. You give them a word like Love or Ocean or whatever and they have to come up with a song that has that word in it and sing at least so many lines. You keep going around until one group can't come up with a song. It is fun because it is a bonding thing getting people to work together and better yet sing together lol

Here is an idea if anyone in the future is looking for one. We are going to greet every guest as they arrive with a lei. Once everyone has arrived, we will announce the rules of a little game we'll play. If anyone hears someone say the word "no", (And it can have the meaning of no or "know"), they get that person's lei. So you will get a lot of people trying to trick others into saying the word "no"! The person with the most lei's at the end of the night will win a prize - in our case we'll be giving away a bottle of Appleton Rum!

I remembered this game from a Christmas Party I went to a few years ago and we had used beads then. It was a lot of fun and really got people mingling! cheesy.gif

In all honesty I am not a big fan of games, I think a few drinks in everyone will relax and havee fun without the games. I am the wrong person to ask however, because I really hate being asked to play games, it makes me feel like I am at a kids party, jmho, I also find it awkward getting them organized. Now ask me about drinking games, and I will have a whole other opinion, hehehe:)

I concur with Kelly. I hate to say it but I'm one of those people who roll their eyes and try to hide under the table when there is game playing. I find music and alcohol are wonderful social stimulators. lol. Are you having a DJ? they are usually well versed in getting the party started. BTW this is all my humble opinion. I may just be socially retarded. lol.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
