Reception ideas

I have a few games planned in between ceremony and dinner for socializing.
Thought I might add something I came up with. In this time of disruption and people being opposed to views etc, thought about providing rocks for people to write favorite verse or words on and leave them around to find or give to someone at reception they don’t know. Ice breaker. I paint rocks at campgrounds, home etc
What are your thoughts?!?

    That’s interesting but I don’t quite know if many people are going to go for it but if you want it as an option there, I’m sure some would do it

    I would prepare for only a few to actually participate. We played a trivia game at our wedding and I would say only about half to one third of the guests actually played. A lot of them didn't want to get out of their seats to come to the dance floor hence they didn't participate. It was a lot of fun even for the people who didn't activity participate because it was fun to see some of the ridiculous answers some of our guests gave and how well others knew us as a couple.

    Just let guests socialize on their own as they are comfortable. Firs day of school type ice breakers don't tend to go over well with most people. Trust that the adults can entertain themselves.

    I would not want to write a message on a rock personally as a wedding guest unless there was a station for it. I think writing messages are cute but I would find another way to do so.

    I think it might work better if you wrote the verses/messages on the rocks and then had your guests find them. It's a lot less awkward to discover something *with* a stranger than it is for one person to offer something personal and have the other person react to it.
