Apart from the bride and the groom, weddings are the perfect opportunity to build new friendships among your guests. This is especially true if your guests are from different backgrounds, countries, or even social groups. To jumpstart their conversation, let your event planning expert, D’Mar Banquet and Conference Center, share four exciting wedding icebreaker ideas.
1. Provide Icebreaker Questions
While we do our best to execute your reception seating arrangement according to plan, some of your guests may end up sitting with someone they don’t know. Help them strike a conversation by placing a mason jar filled with fun questions. It’s a surefire way of getting to know one another and making the event a lot more fun.
2. Place Interesting Facts about the Couple on Your Guests’ Tables
Deck your banquet halls with interesting facts about you and your soon-to-be spouse. We can put them up on the walls, chairs, or tables. We can also place them on the table napkins or table numbers. This will get the conversation going among your guests. See how they laugh at your stories and share a few of their own as well.
3. Think of Simple Yet Personalized Games
While many of your guests may love to dance during your reception, there may be some who would rather stay in their own seats. We suggest thinking of quaint yet mind-stimulating games, like a personalized crossword puzzle. You can put clues about you and your would-be spouse on it. It might encourage your guests to ask each other for help finishing the game.
4. Create Customized Pin-On Buttons
Show your appreciation to your guests by making their own pin-on button. Apart from putting their name on it, you can include a fascinating fact about them as well. This way, your guests would have an easier time knowing one another’s names and the factoid gives them something to talk about.
