Yes! I love that Martha Stewart Weddings contributed some cute ideas to the conversation about how to build community and connection at a wedding (which I found via this blog).
Here's the classic Penny for Your Thoughts ice-breaker:
Get guests talking (and, with any luck, maybe over-sharing) with vintage coins that are sure to mint new friendships.
Weddings are a great chance to build community and connection among a variety of people who may not know each other.
Ask your bandleader to explain the rules: Each guest opens his or her favor box, then shares with the table an important event that corresponds to the year on each coin (e.g., "In 1996, I was named best-dressed in high school").Make It
Look for vintage coins in collectors' shops and online (try eBay). Line each box with a mini cupcake paper, then tuck a few coins inside. Last, tie each box with a ribbon printed with a message that hints at the fun to come.
What other ideas do you have for breaking the ice?
