Fun to be had

3 Nov

In French weddings, we don’t have speeches or bridesmaids and groomsmen. It is a different type of weddings altogether.
But what we have however is ‘games’. Generally organised by the friends, the bride and groom (and guests) are entertained by fun games, stories, mini shows and so on.

So when I looked at the La Belle Bride‘s blog the other day and come across this wedding and these tags (below),I though of how great it would be to incorporate some sort of games or activities during the dinner. I have been to a few weddings where you  have questionnaires on the couple, and so on and it is really nice to have something to entertain your guests and have fun. But what about having something that will last the distance. A dare or a task that you get given on the night (as part of your escort card) that you have to do with the bride and groom within their first year as a married couple.

So it gets me thinking and I would love to have your input in these. I already have some ideas, all surrounding the concept of old-school communications, keeping in touch and reminding each other how important we are for each other.

Examples:
– Write a letter to the bride and groom before their first year anniversary
– Take the bride out for a cocktail
– Take the groom to the driving range
– Send a photo to the bride and groom of your favourite place in your home town.

Who wouldn’t be up for the challenge?

    How cute!!! Games break the ice and it’s always fun when everyone is laughing and having a good time at a wedding!

    That sounds like great way to help your guests give back to you! I’ve been to lots of weddings where everyone is just sitting around wondering what to do. I love the idea of a challenge for guests too – why are American weddings so boring in comparison?
