YAWT: Making the couple kiss...

You know how, at most weddings, the guests can make the Bride & Groom kiss by:
  • Tapping their cutlery against their glasses or plates (annoying!)
  • Telling a funny story about one of the Newlyweds (kinda boring)

Can anyone suggest any other ways? All suggestions are welcome

The last few weddings I've been to, guests have had to sing a few lines from a song with the word love in it for the newlyweds to kiss.

i absolutely hated the tapping of the glass thing at my wedding. i nearly punched my mom's side of the family because they knew i hated it and they kept doing it anyway.

I stand in between them. Since I'm so kissable myself, it's inevitable that both bride and groom will lean in to give me a peck on the cheek. At that point, I back away, and they connect!

I never heard of that.

I guess I have been lucky.

Chinese wedding receptions @ dinner usually tap chopsticks on plates.

it's a tradition.

I've never been witness to anything other than the clinking.

Re: YAWT: Making the couple kiss...

Yea, the singing with the word love in the song was a good one and done at our wedding. When people started tapping glasses the DJ made and annoucement that instead folks would need to put forth a little more effort and stand up and sing some songs (once a song was sung, that was it, no repeats). My wife and I didn't know about it, but we loved it.

This was done during dinner which was good because we just had classical music playing low in the background and the DJ could easily recognize that a group was about to sing and could cut the music and get everyone to pay attention. It also made the waiting between courses (the most popular time people were singing) go nice and quick.

At my first wedding, we made people sing the theme songs to TV shows.

When did wedding receptions turn into American Idol?

At my cousins wedding they had to tell a joke.

At my friend's wedding they had to donate to the bride's chosen charity.

I think they should have to buy the bride/groom a lapdance.

This I like. I am getting married in a year, and if any one of her stupid family starts the class clinking bull shit I am going to throw things at them.

Why not just make out non-stop during the reception. Then people won't have to perform like chimps to get you to perform like chimps.
