Truth or Dare at the reception

No, I'm not 12 and yes, I love to play tricks.  So, to lighten up or break the ice at our reception, we are going to have the guests play Truth or Dare, if they choose to CLANK THEIR GLASSES TO SEE US KISS, ugh.  Clanking of glasses is not common where I'm from but where I live now, it consumes every reception I've ever been at.  If no one clanks their glasses at our wedding *in 11 days* then this won't matter, but if they do......

clanky clanky..Collapse )
In addition to possibly doing this, we also have a slideshow for cocktail hour and a live band after dinner.  I'm hoping there won't be any shortage of fun on October 18th. 

EDIT: So maybe I'll change the name to TRIVIA or CHALLENGE.  Didn't mean to offend so many people and I'll take out the 'pinch the butt' one.  As you read through all the other ones, it is very very innocent and fun questions and challenges (singing a band aid song?) 
And yes, the 'rules' persay are going to be announced during the point the FH asks everyone to sign our guestbook and a few other things he wants to say.  I did forget to mention that, this will NOT be a surprise, they will know what's coming if they 'clink', and like I said above, if no one clinks, no worries. This also won't last ALL night long, just possibly during the dinner.  So, ignore the name Truth or Dare, I guess I found this funny and possibly VERY entertaining for those who want to participate or those who want to watch.

I am not sure I like the idea but everyone has different tastes.

I am not doing the glass clinky thing.People can clink all they like nothing is happening. I want to eat my dinner, and enjoy the reception my parents are spending a fortune on. I find the whole clinky thing annoying.(my opinion)

I find the clinky thing totally annoying too, that's why we wanted to try to make it fun and who knows, maybe I'll get lucky and no one will clink. congrats!

For the dares, take out the entire table. It's not cool to make people do something just because someone else at the table wanted the bride and groom to kiss. I like the idea, just make it so that the only person who is at risk of looking like an idiot is the one person. I would probably leave a reception if I had to do something I didn't want to do because someone else sitting at the table decided to pick a slip. But I'd laugh is just that person had to sing or go oink.

And maybe make the trivia a bit more general. Not everyone is going to know where the groom proposed. And maybe some riddles. Or make them "yes" or "no" questions about the person, which is what Truth or Dare is. But be careful that the answers won't make someone else other than the picker uncomfortable, like asking if the person who picked the slip has ever had a crush on the bride or groom.

It's not meant that way. There's a lot of humor in this if done right and by no means does ANYONE or EVERYONE have to participate. Again, Truth or Dare was the wrong wording.

I totally want to be sexually harassed by a stranger at a wedding...

This is not meant as humiliation, punishment or embarassement. Seriously? If someone at a table doesn't want to participate, so what, great, no problem.
However, if someone can't sit near this and enjoy other people having fun, then it's their problem, by no means do they have to participate. Seriously, I'm not a mean person. Looking for some lighthearted fun and don't see the harm in this. wow.

no one knows you better then yourself! Having your wedding the way you want it is ideal... Use everyones feed back and tweak it!
Oct. 7th, 2008 07:23 pm (UTC)
I will make some adjustments, thanks for the advice.
Oct. 7th, 2008 08:35 pm (UTC)
Regardless of what anyone else says, I love it!! Haha, make those people pay if they clink! If I wasn't having an already super informal reception then I would take this idea but no one would dare use traditions at my wedding!! Keep it!

clinking to kiss will take all of 10 seconds tops... playing these games... much longer.

where I am from, we clink. I don't find it to be annoying at all... Clink, Kiss, move on.

That being said, if I was at your reception, I would not enjoy playing this game. Just like I don't like it when you have to stand up and sing a song in order for the bride/groom to kiss.

I am with you! Up with clinking! Plus don't people WANT to kiss their new spouse? LOL

Groan. My cousins did this at their own wedding and everyone had a BLAST.

I think you should consider how your guests will handle it instead.

I think it sounds fun.

I would imagine that a few people will get into it and have a blast, and a few people won't care to participate, but will probably have fun watching everyone else.

We're trying to come up with some reception games, and when I posted about them on this group a while ago I got some similar responses to what you've gotten. Keep your chin up!

I went to a wedding that did something like this, but less obnoxiously. Basically, there were trivia and challenges on little pieces of paper inside balloons -- people would pop the balloons and choose whether or not to do them, if they didn`t want to, it was passed around for someone else, etc. If they chose to do it, they would announce it by clinking their glasses and then do the task and Mike and Wade would kiss. It was fun and not so embarrassing. The tasks and trivia were also more sentimental than the ones you suggest, like favorite memories and not about how well you know them.
