We are having a very intimate wedding of about 10 people. The first night they get there I have a dinner planned but would like some kind of activities or ice breakers for that night. Anyone got any ideas?
We are at a private villa with pool and beach but no one else around.

    Strip poker? Truth or Dare?

    How about a trivia game about the couple? Kinda like what you do at a shower. You could make cards that look like trivial pursuit cards, but with questions about you as a couple.

        Well, mine is in the Dominican and 2 of the guests are over 80, lol, so that may not work but that is a great idea for anyone doing one in Mexico, how fun!!!

          duh (sorry!) - i should try reading, or at least not watching tv at the same time.

          are you doing a slide show or anything?

          LOL, no problem, most of the brides on here are getting married in Mexico, so easy mix up. I did a slide show for my STD and am doing one at the two AHR, so I don't think I will there.

            How about a bonfire on the beach with smores? Even the 80-year old can have fun with this one too! maria Elena did this following her reception and it was a big hit!

            bingo? (OK, I was still thinking about the 80-year olds but this could be fun!).

            Salsa dancing lessons? Natasha did this at her wedding in Cabo but I'm sure they're salsa-ing in DR too!

            Tequila (or other local favorite) tasting?

            Cigar roller (I'm not crazy about this idea because I'm an ex-smoker but hey. you never know!)

            Let us know what you decide! A sunsety cruise would also be fun, or a daytime snorkeling trip... games ont eh beach like volleyball, badminton, etc...

              I was also going to suggest a "who knows the couple best" type of game.

              Or, will there be many couples there? Maybe a Newlywed type game if you can get someone to be the host. Like you are the engaged couple, then a married couple, the either a dating couple or another married couple.

              Rent a little karaoke machine?

              Since you are in a private villa, how about just a pool type party?

              Umm... I don't know what else!

              You guys have great ideas... I love the idea of a scavenger hunt, and read somewhere else on here of doing it like a photo scav hunt... so I think I am going to do that maybe over a couple of days, but have to figure out how to get instant. Hopefully they will have digital cameras within the teams.
              I really think I am going to use that Newlywed game too, lmao. We are all couples with two guys as the odd ones out. But, the funny thing is we tease them all the time that they are "a couple" because they are inseperable best friends. I think it would by hysterical to have them as a team because they would prob win, lol!
              Thanks guys, keep them coming, I am love this!
