I was at a wedding that did this!! have to admit it really was cringeworthy (well, this particular game anyway, I really like the idea of some more low key ones - would be nice) It was basically a quiz show about the bride and groom :-8 This guy got up with the mic and asked a series of questions about the bride and groom e.g. "where did x and x meet?" "was it A. such and such a place, B. ... (and so on)" then "where did x and x go for their first date" and more multiple choice answers - oh God I blush for them when I think of it!!. Anyway, whoever (put their hand up) and answered correctly got a prize e.g. bottle of aftershave, bottle of wine... horrible, IMO!!!

Oh no it sounds like a lot of work - for whatever unfortunate has to devise and organise the games and even more for the guests.

I would hate to have to participate in one of these games as a guest at a wedding. Def won't be organising anything like that for my big day !

i like the idea of having somethin, but dont want any cringy stuff, or anythin that has to stop the day for guests etc like that. I was thinking of buying these for the tables, just for fun or to help guests mingle if they need it, but wouldnt have to bother with it if they dont want to? http://www.onlineweddingshop.co.uk/prod ... x_60_cards

Fcuk no! Quizzes are something you do for charity or when you're waiting for a train. It would be like admitting you think your wedding is dull, dull, dull.

I would love to do this at my wedding, I remember being at a wedding when I was younger where they played games and everyone got into the swing of it, only problem is I cant remember what the games were. Any ideas?

i was going to get trivia boxes too just for the people amount the table to do.. they might look at it funny at first but it'd get the people at the table mingling together and might give them a bit of a laugh was what i was thinking.. i saw one marriage advice 101, where everyone writes down a tip for the bride and groom, and the best and funniest win a prize.. i don't know though..
