Weddings can run late. No matter what you do, you can always be just a few minutes behind. While you’re still getting ready your guests are sitting in their chairs patiently memorizing your program. Create a program that incorporates games about the bride and groom like crossword puzzles, word searches, or mad libs to name a few. Not only will your guests be entertained but they might also learn something new about the couple. At my own wedding, we placed a crossword puzzle in our program and our guests raved about it! For those hot summer weddings, provide your guests with a fan, complete with a pencil. You can also set one at each place setting for guests to peruse while the reception gets started. There are tons of online programs to make crossword and word searches, here is one of them.

Our StudioWed Asheville vendor, the Baggie Goose, [the source for all elements with paper and weddings related in Asheville and beyond] can also do these for you!  They are fantastic at taking an idea and running with it – and it always looks great!  You can reach them at 828.274.3333.  You can also find them on facebook here.
