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.

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!

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. ž And everybody loved the idea. People still talk about that from my wedding.
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..

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.
