Let's Get This Conversation Started!

This is the last thing you want to see at your wedding reception. 

Keep things interesting – have fun questions on the back of the table number card (silly questions like “What Netflix series do you watch?” or “What’s your favorite thing to do here at the lakes?”).


TheKnot.com offers the idea of drink tickets with prompts. For example, find someone wearing purple and ask them where they went for their last vacation. Or have tags on the glasses!


WeddingBee.com gives the idea of a treasure hunt – or something like the Amazing Race. Someone wrote, “At our wedding, the groomsmen kidnaped me in the middle of a toast. The DJ took over after receiving a list of demands from the groomsmen to get me back.” She explained how one clue was to get kisses from grandmothers. To Okoboji-ify this idea, have clues be about different parts of the lakes and the people searching has to answer. 

There is also a company that is specific to this type of thing – Table Topics. There are multiple editions and I’m sure there is something for your wedding!
