Is anyone doing this?

Recommended Posts

We also aren't doing the bouquet/garter toss thing... and I like your idea about honoring the married couples... but out of 31 people we only have 4 married couples! If anything I'd rather not do anything that might alienate people (mostly the singles!) But our dance is only 2.5 hours long so I wonder if we even need anything? I hope not because I'm running out of time and brain power!

Another idea I've heard of (and we may actually do) is while the guests are seated, you have the DJ or MC ask questions about the bride or groom to guests, like true or false questions. Guests work together at each table to answer the questions (kinda like a game show). The table who can answer the most questions gets a prize or something like that. Just a thought.
This same idea was used at my brothers wedding except if the table or person got the question right, the bride and groom had to kiss....if the question was answered wrong, the bride and groom got to choose who that person or table kissed. It was quite a bit of fun, especially when a table of my brothers single male friends all had to troop over and kiss my mum!

Oh my gosh barbigirl that is HILARIOUS!!!

I'm loving the idea of not doing the garter/bouquet toss...Thatâ€s always my least favorite part of any reception lol! So thanks to everyone for offering alternatives!

I don't believe in either so will not be doing them. Haven't really thought of replacing them with something else, I was just going to forget about it. But now that you have mentioned it, it maybe good to come up with something. Thanks!

We aren't doing the garter/bouquet toss either. I love the last dance idea! I really want to use that idea. But I too don't want to allienate the singles, is there an alternative for the single people?

Instead, we had all the married couples out on the dance floor for a special dance and then the DJ periodically eliminated the couples by how long they've been married. First was, "if you've been married for less than a day, leave the dance floor." Obviously, that's the bride and groom! Then less than a year, five years, ten years, or however, customized to however many couples you have. The last couple on the dance floor is the longest married. We had a special bouquet made up for them. It was a beautiful way to honour those who have been married for such a long time instead of putting spotlight on the singles. :oÞ And everybody loved the idea. People still talk about that from my wedding.
i like this idea..

you can also do the "is he my husband?" game
where you blindfolded her and placed her in front of several men. let her choose which one is her husband by touching his face or any part of his body..

We plan on doing the bouquet/garter toss, depending on how many single guests are attending.

 

I'm not sure we'll have enough time for games throughout the reception though... especially if we do the bouquet/garter thing... plus, I think most of my guests won't really like games to being with.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
