I've been trying to think of a fun way to keep my guests entertained during the reception and also something to break the ice and get everyone to talk and interact with each other at their tables. I came across the idea of wedding mad libs from a wedding featured on Style Me Pretty and I think it's so fun and clever. I used to love doing mad libs in high school and if you have a fun crowd they can be hilarious!
If you aren't familiar with mad libs, basically you place a list of fill in-the-blank words (nouns, adjectives, verbs) on one side for your guests to fill out. The sillier the words the better! Then you flip the page and fill your words into the blank spaces in the story on the other side. Usually the words are ridiculous and make the story really funny. You could read the best ones aloud on the microphone during the reception and then keep them to look back on for years to come!
You can find these online and purchase them, but I think it would be better to make your own! I plan to make use of the graphic artist in the family (AKA, my sister) to help me put something together. Then I'll place one at each table during the reception and let my guests have fun filling them out together!
What do you think of the idea? Fun or cheesy? I'd love to hear your opinions! XOXO
