    So our pre-wedding AHR is next Saturday and I have to finalize with the DJ plans to give away the centerpieces. We've narrowed it down to two options....or 3 if you really want to take my fiance's suggestion for a chugging contest seriously.

    #1. trivia quiz about us (by table) This is only for his side of the family and I haven't even met many of them so I was going to put a short story about us by the guest book and it would contain the answers to the questions.

    #2 tell each table to assign captains. The captains are then responsible for getting the table guests up to dance. In the end, it's the captain who takes home the centerpiece.


    If you've got another good idea that will be entertaining and guests will like, throw it at me!

      Although the chugging contest sounds classy... I voted for the trivia. I think that is a cute way for the guests to get to know you.

        Ahaha um yeah, I don't think the older guests would appreciate it so much (and it IS a formal event). Yet his family members ARE big drinkers...

            Oh yeah, It's vases with rocks/shells in the bottom, filled with water and flowers then a floating candle on top. I think my FMIL also picked up some smaller vases to do this with too. I know it's not a great centerpiece to take home but this is taking place in Canada and we live in the states - we can't take them home and I know my in-laws don't want all of them.

                    Well, this is how we are giving ours away. Whoever's birthday is closest to our wedding date will take home the centerpiece. We thought it would be a fun way for our guests to interact and it is a totally fair way to give them away.

                    I can't take credit for the idea though, it was my FMIL that thought of it.

                    Good Luck!

                      I was just at a wedding and they did the closest birthday also. I thought it was really cute. It got everyone at the table talking.

                      Of the choices, I vote for the dancing. I think it's a good way to get the party started!
