27 Nov Help your guests to mingle with these great ideas
There is a good chance that the majority of your wedding guests are already going to know each other.
However, there is still some guests that may not have met the rest of the guests before.
This means that if you want to make sure that your wedding day goes well, then you are going to want to think about how you can encourage your guests to mingle.
So, how can you do this?
How can you help your guests to break the ice and get to know one another?
Have someone act as an introducer
Do you have a family member or friend who is happy to go up to people and introduce themselves?
Why not ask them if they would act as an introducer for your wedding day?
They don’t need to do this for the entire evening, just dedicate an hour or so at the beginning helping people to get to know one another.
This really needs to be someone who knows the majority of the guests as this will help them to make their introductions.
However, you can also help them to figure things out by offering up some info before the big day.
Now we know that this idea may seem a little on the tacky side, but there are ways that you can make tasteful badges for your guests.
You could include not only their names, but also how they know the bride and groom.
This will help other people to work out who they are and how they know you and will act as an icebreaker.
You could even make them fun, if you like that approach, as this will help to make your guests smile too.
Add wedding trivia to the table
If you are planning on having mixed tables (and this can work really well for a wedding) then one way that you can break the ice and introduce your guests to one another is to have wedding trivia on the table.
Tell your guests that they can win a prize if they work together to answer the questions, this is often enough to get them motivated.
You can include questions about the bride and groom as well as some more all-encompassing questions about weddings in general.
The idea is that they should all be able to come together to find the answers that they are searching for.
Breaking the ice for your guests is important.
Not only will this help your wedding party to really go as well as it can.
But it also helps you to make sure that you can relax and feel comfortable that they are going to have the best day possible too.
Exactly what you are going to want for your big day.
