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......

 they can choose Truth or Dare, which will be in a container at the head table with the following things on them:
(I added a few answers just cause they are funny or interesting:)

  • If someone made a movie about Bride & grooms’s life, who would play them?
  • If groom had a superpower what would it be?
  • If bride were invisible, what is the first thing she would do?
  • If groom were the opposite sex for one hour, what would he do?
  • Where did groom propose to bride?
  • What kind of car does Bride have in storage?  ('76 camaro)
  • Where do bride & groom go every year for Valentines?
  • What’s the farthest state that anyone here today traveled from?
  • Where was groom and bride’s first date and how long did it last? (at a bar, 7 minutes)
  •  Name 5 things as to why the bride and groom are perfect for each other
  • Where are Bride & Groom going on their extended honeymoon? (st. lucia)
  • Who did groom ask for bride’s hand in marriage? (children & father)
  • What does the groom love most about the bride and what does the bride love most about the groom? (groom loves brides butt and bride loves grooms hands)
  • Who is groom’s television girlfriend? (alexandra from the weather channel)
  • Who is Bride named after? (dad's foster sister)
  • If groom were home alone for an evening, what would he make himself for dinner? (steak)
  • What did the bride & groom want to each be, when they grew up? (farmer & dorothy hammill
  • What are the bride & groom’s middle names?
  • What job title did the kids give the groom after they found out he lays flooring? (florist, HA)
  • Which of the guests, not including family, has the groom known the longest?
  • What’s your best marital advice for the bride & groom?
  • What states have the bride and groom visited together? (MT, WY, FL, CO, IA, IL)
  • Who in the room has been married the longest and the shortest?
  • How many tattoos do the bride and groom have combined? (15, only the bride, the groom has none)
  • After groom & bride met, who gave who their phone number, and where was it found? (groom gave # to bride and bride's son found it in her tip jar from the bar she worked at)



  • Impersonate a famous person and the room must guess who it is
  • You and your table must snort 3 times as loud as you can
  • You and your table must sing the Oscar Mayer Wiener song
  • You and your table must sing the Band aids Brand song
  • Give someone at your table a piggy back ride around the dance floor
  • Pick someone you don’t know and pinch their behind
  • You need to pick a partner and both moonwalk across the dance floor
  • You and your table have one minute to choose a love ballad and sing to the bride and groom
  • Give your best impersonation of Clint Eastwood
  • You and your table must do your best Yeehaw’s and pretend to throw your cowboy hats
  • You and your table must name the 7 dwarfs
  • Starting with …. And going around the table to the left, your table must fill in the blanks in the following story “  Bride & Groom went to ………   Where they had a lot of……. In the meantime groom spotted a……… When he was immediately ............ So then bride started…………. And she bought a …………….. bride & groom then began………… And for the rest of their lives, they………………."


(fill in the blanks)  Groom, Bride and the kids started……………. And daughter wanted a …………. At the same time, son #1 saw……….. and son #2 asked for……………. As all three kids were laughing, they also saw………………. groom began to ………….. And as a surprise to all of them, Bride brought in a ………….. And they all were overwhelmed with……………….. the end


  • (fill in the blanks) A long time ago in……………… groom was………………. When he immediately realized he was ………………… A friend of his said that was normal so groom went to ……….. and asked if it was okay. Right then groom began ………… behind a tree. His friend walked over and picked up a …………….. and told groom to………. so groom and his friend spent the rest of the day……………… the end.
???? what do you think?  We are at 260 people at our reception with 34 tables, and our friends and family are always up for gags and fun.  any other ideas? 
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.

You're one of few that I didn't offend. It's supposed to funny but no one wants to have any fun? Just punished, embarassed and humilated. Wow, if that's what I wanted to do to my guests I could get really nasty. Naming the 7 dwarfs? singing the song to oscar mayer wiener? wow. And each guest HAS a choice to be involved or not. Doesn't anyone ever get out and have any 12 year old fun anymore? Cause no one said I had to grow up. (oops, I'm almost 40)

You asked for opinions, people are giving them. A lot of people have social anxiety issues and really don't want to stand up and do something that is (for them) really uncomfortable.

Honestly, I'd probably just be annoyed with it, as sometimes these little games take a hell of a lot longer than the glass clinking and kissing, or ignore it and wonder what was happening. If someone at my table clinked glasses and our whole table had to do something, I'd probably use it as an excuse to go to the bathroom. Does that make me Debbie Downer and someone who doesn't like to have "12 year old fun"? No, it's just not my thing - and I prefer grown-up fun to 12 year old fun, actually.

I agree with some of the other posters who ask for you to remove the rule that the entire table has to do it. If someone wants to get up by themselves and sing the band-aids theme song for you to kiss, more power to them.
