Ideas for Your Bridal Dance

Playing Trivia at Your Wedding Reception

Some people are naturally gregarious and have no trouble connecting, others may choose not to join in any icebreakers … choice is important.

Games for the Reception

More Wedding Icebreakers!

(see cautionary warning on previous blog!)

I attended one wedding where we were given the lyrics to Elvis Presley’s song, Love me Tender. During the ceremony most people joined in and sang. The song sheet had prompts for just the women to sing a chorus, and then the men, and then together. It was awesome.   ... read more

Games and Icebreakers for Weddings

Wedding games and icebreakersGames and icebreakers for weddings can be lots of fun… our family has always loved playing games however there is a cautionary warning, not every guest will want to join in. Some will hear the word, ‘game’ and make a bolt for the door. Others will groan, but despite themselves will have fun!

Of course, they are fun things to do that don’t necessarily involve ‘playing a game’ like the cootie catchers or as I knew them the ‘fortune tellers’. Do you remember them from primary school?  ... read more
