Forgive the Miss Piggy moment, there, folks.
I am currently eyeball-deep in ideas for kissing games. No, not for my own personal use — I don’t need games for that, do I, B.E.? — but for the upcoming nuptials. I don’t know about you, but I’m SO not a fan of the clinking of glasses to get the bridal couple to kiss. So I’ve gathered together a few ideas of alternatives.
- Hershey’s Kisses — in this one, you fill an opaque bag with two colours of Hershey’s Kisses. When a person wants the bride and groom to kiss, they come up and select a kiss from the bag. If the kiss is silver, the bride and groom kiss. However, if the kiss is red (or whatever colours are available), the guest must then go back to his/her table and kiss someone there.
- Kissing Die — with this one, you create a large, soft, six-sided die. You put a pair of lips on 3 sides, and the numbers 1,2, and 3 on the other sides. The guest rolls the die and if it lands on lips, the bride and groom kiss. If it lands on a number, for example, two, the guest must then go and find two other guests to kiss.
- Putting Green — here you set up one of those hole-in-one putting greens on the dance floor, and guests must come up and try to score a hole-in-one. If they do, the bride and groom kiss. If the guest misses, he or she must go back and kiss someone at their table.
So far, I’m leaning toward 1 or 2. I’m going to hunt for some more ideas, too. I’ve done the “sing a love song” one before, and I’m not so keen on the trivia ones. I’ve also seen the “donation to charity” one — where a guest must put a monetary donation in a glass jar to get the bride and groom to kiss… but I’m not sure I want people to have to shell out more cash (especially those who have travelled a long way to get here).
Any suggestions from those of you out there in cyber-world? I’m happy to hear ‘em all…!
