During most wedding receptions, you may hear the clinking of glasses at the tables to encourage the bride and groom to share an intimate lover's kiss. Over the years, this tradition has changed to embrace the spirit and personality of the new couple. Various games and acts are required to get the newlyweds to share a kiss for their friends and family at their wedding reception.
At each place setting for the guests, supply a small silver bell with a note attached to encourage them to ring the bell to get the bride and groom to share a kiss for the crowd. There can be one larger bell for each table or smaller bells for each guest to start the game themselves.
Sing a Tune
Guests stand and sing a song. The most common way to play this one is to have them sing a song with the word "love" in the lyrics and the bride and groom will kiss every time the word "love" is sung; guests can also sing a TV show theme song or change the lyrics to a popular song to reflect the bride and groom in some special way.
Share a Memory
At the reception, have a microphone available, preferably near the DJ. If a guest wants the bride and groom to kiss, they can come up to the microphone and share a memory of the bride or groom. This memory can be either a heartfelt story or a funny joke about one of the newlyweds or both.
Hula for a Kiss
Have a hula hoop available. For the bride and groom to share a passionate kiss for their guests, one individual will need to hula hoop for 30 seconds straight. This is a great way for the wedding photographer to snap some candid, fun photos.
Roll the Dice
Create a dice with an image of lips on two random sides. If party guests roll the dice and it lands on a kiss image, the bride and groom must kiss. If it rolls on a side with a number, the guest needs to count that many seats to the right and kiss that person at the their table.
Make a Donation
Pick a charity that the bride and groom would like to benefit. Each time someone wants the bride and groom to kiss, a guest must put money in a donation jar. The larger the donation, the longer and more dramatic the kiss.
