Ideas for guests to get to know each other?

Recommended Posts

I went to a destination wedding last year and the bride and groom had a hilarious game that really helped the guests at the party get to know each other...almost like a grown-up "ice breaker." I am looking for suggestions of games/activities that other brides are doing that will get the guests opened up and interacting...

 

Thanks!

We're listing an interesting fact about each person and you have to ask around to find who it is. Some examples we have: This person has photographed Bill Clinton. This person was in Aruba when Natalie Holloway disappeared. This person was valedictorian in high school.

 

We'll have a prize for the person who gets all of the answers first. When FI and I were starting to work on this, he didn't know mine! We'll have to ask some people to come up with one themselves, but I think it'll work out well.

We aren't doing anythin cause everyone already knows each other and gets along, etc. One of the girls made funny buttons/pins to put on the table. they had random sayings for conversation starters they were very cute

Good question about ideas to get to know each other, I too will be watching for more suggestions. Our future son in law is from Nova Scotia & we haven't met some of his extended family yet so it may be awkward at first, but hopefully everyone will get along well .

We are doing a meet the greet booklet with everyone's headshot. Just be careful I found this idea on here however it has been a huge pain amongst some to get the photos and why we want them they think its sillyhuh.gifhuh.gif? I think its a great idea!

I remember reading about the buttons/pins, and thought that was a great idea! I tried searching for it but cant find anything...anyone remember who it was that did that?

Two truths and a lie is a great one!

 

It goes just like it sounds. Each person tells everyone else two truths and one lie about themselves, it is then the job of the group to guess which one was the lie. Ends up getting pretty silly, but you learn a lot of conversation starters in a little bit of time-- also, I find everyone tries to one-up one another, so the truths and lies get pretty interesting.

I actually bought a few sets of this wedding trivia game I found online on ebay. It's only available in the UK. I figured I'd put a set at each table so everyone can play....it's kind of like a pop culture trivia game but all questions are related to something romance related...
