Grown-Up Fill-in-the-Blanks
Fill-in-the-bank scrolls are a blast for guests to play with -- and provide you with a keepsake to read at each anniversary (just ask a friend to collect them all at the end of the night, and then compile them into a guest book). To make them, download our template, roll each sheet around a mini pencil, tie it with cord, and place one atop every plate.

Perfect Pairs Game
Hoping your college roommate chats up your future husband's childhood friend? Find-your-match cards are a sweet way to ensure they'll meet. Announce the rules early in the evening (consider asking a member of your wedding party to explain them). Each guest will receive a card with the name of one half of a famous couple -- and will have until the end of the night to find its mate.


Song and Dance
Here's a guaranteed dance-floor hit: Instead of numbering your tables, assign a song title to each one. When the tune plays, the whole table has to get up and get down.
