This might sound silly, but trust me…this is a great way to get your guests chatting and mingling. Often at weddings people group together based on whether they already know each other. Family from one side all chats together, friends of the groom chat together, friends of the bride chat and so on. But a wedding is meant to be a time when ALL your friends and family can gather together to celebrate with you. So I think it is best to try and break up these “cliques” and get EVERYONE chatting with each other.
One way to do this is to have buttons made with cute pictures of the bride and the groom. Then at the start of the cocktail reception, someone walks around passing out buttons based on whether the guest knows the bride or the groom. Which team are they on? These buttons will spark conversation amongst all of the guests. Trust me! It will be so fun!
