Clinking Glassware is so Last Year

We can all recall sitting through Wedding Receptions full of clinking glasses {cringe}. If only I could be a guest at a wedding were the couple offered a Kissing Menu.

This fabulous idea was put together by Kilee of Happy Hour Bride and designed by Heather of We Met in a Bar [yes, I'm a huge fan of her work].

I love the idea of Guests working for the traditional Wedding Reception kissing show.

The Kissing Menu reminded me of one of my favorite DIY ideas I found on Style Me Pretty a ways back: The Kissing Tree.

{Style Me Pretty}


The Kissing Tree as explained by the Bride who used it:

The kissing tree was an alternative to the clinking of glasses. The guest would approach the tree and pluck off a matchbook (if you look closely it has an embossed smooch on it), then hand it to the MC. He would then read aloud what they had to do to have us kiss. The tasks included…answering Bride and Groom trivia, singing a love song with your table, performing a charade of a “wedding” movie, or demonstrating how we were to kiss by kissing someone else!

The best part: both options are easily altered for each couple and their guests. Options can be catered to the couple's interests and the group dynamic. I can imagine many laughs and a night of entertainment [not to mention eliminating the headaches one endures after a night of glass clinking].

That's such a great idea - I love the idea of involving your guests as much as possible. It makes things much more special and oriented around the bride & groom, as it should be!
