Welcome to ABC/123 Episode 20 Wedding Breakfast Ice Breakers. Last week I posted about planning your Wedding Breakfast and three very basic ideas that I believe can help you make your meal more personal so that your guests feel more connected. To see that video PLEASE CLICK HERE.
For me, that’s the key to creating an amazing wedding day – make sure everybody feels connected. These are the people you’ve chosen to share the biggest party you may ever throw, so make sure they feel you really care about them. So giving a “welcome”, saying ‘grace” and playing background music that reflects who you are and creates the atmosphere you want are great places to start.
The simple ice breakers in this weeks video will help break down any apprehensions your guests might have. You are going to show them that this is a celebration and that the party has already begun so they should relax and have fun.
A simple Wedding Quiz ~ I suggest 20 questions about you (you can see examples of this in my “Real Weddings” booklet.
Pearls of Wisdom cards are another favourite of mine. Simple cards with various sentences that your guests can finish – for example “To have a long and happy marriage I would …” and “The One thing never to say is …”
Photo challenges ~ getting your guests to take photos on their phones and cameras with a list of suggested topics, or the Bride and Bridegroom going around the room taking selfies with each table.
All three of these will get people talking and having fun – even if they’ve never met the other guests at their table before.
Next time I’m going to take a look at the speeches – including who traditionally speaks, what they say, and in what order – and don’t panic, there really is nothing to worry about!
Don’t forget to check out all the videos in this series and if you have any questions or other things you’d like me to cover in the ABC/123 series Thanks for watching episode 20 Wedding Breakfast Ice Breakers.
