There is a game called "table talk" its a cube of cards that you can buy. They come in all different topics, people take turns picking a card and acting out or speaking of the topic/action on the card.

I think the reception will be fine... people start talking and having a few drinks and it'll be fine... don't worry everyone will be happy and relaxed

I think we all go through the same worry at some point. We end up trying to make up games and such to get people to talk and they end up getting together on their own and having a great time. So in conclusion relax cheesy.gif everyone will be fine and if they aren't you can always completely liven up the party daring people to go on the dance floor lol!

I've been worried about the same thing. We are having a cocktail party in between the ceremony and the dinner and I'm so worried that everyone will just be standing around waiting for dinnertime since not everyone drinks. We aren't having a reception so this is where we figure we will play music and just hope even a few want to dance. I'm hoping that the music we pick will inspire someone to get out there and shake it. I'm sure after all our worrying everything will work out fine :)

Do you have a 'partying' type crowd or a pretty modest crowd? I think once people start drinking it'll be fine. But to prevent that...having a DJ who'll play good, upbeat music and in your own venue will really help.

I am so worried about the same thing. I don't want people to be bored but I don't want to make people dance or play a game if they don't want. Its our wedding but also their vacation.

I was soooo paranoid about this same thing!! But trust me--as the other girls said--people will mingle and chat, and they won't be bored! Think about the wedding receptions you have been to...have you ever been bored? Sure, some might not be as exciting as others, but I have never actually been bored at a reception. As long as there are people to talk to, as well as food, drinks, and music, it will all be fine! We brought a game for our guests to play during our reception, but it really wasn't needed. By the time we ate and had some speeches, there was no time left. I know it's hard to take our word for it, but trust us past brides...your reception will be awesome!!!
