Inspired by Hannah at A Very Gator Wedding, I used Discovery Education to put together a 12-question crossword about our relationship and wedding. The online template was easy to use, and afterward, I copied the puzzle onto a separate sheet of paper, where I created my own layout, including the questions and instructions.
Before the reception starts, our coordinator will help us out by leaving a puzzle sheet at each guest’s table setting. Then, during the meal, guests can enjoy answering questions about our hometown, jobs and honeymoon spot.
The questions will also test how much they’ve paid attention during the wedding so far, with questions about the theme, wedding party, signature drink and first dance. I’m really excited about this game, and hope our guests will be, too!
But what if someone doesn’t want to play, or doesn’t want the centerpiece? That’s totally fine. They can either give the centerpiece to someone else at the table who does want it, or just leave it with us at the end of the night.
Or, suppose someone gets stumped on a question? That’s OK, too. They can easily hit us up for a clue as we make the rounds during dinner. All in all, this is designed to be lighthearted and laid-back.
What do you think? Will you include any games or contests at your wedding?
