The Kissing Tree

A friend of mine recently told me about a neat idea called 'The Kissing Tree'. I had never heard of this before, but thought it was a clever idea and had to share. I'm sure most of you know that the clinking of glasses at a wedding means that the bride + groom have to kiss. Well, The Kissing Tree is used as an alternative to this age-old tradition. The Kissing Tree looks something like what is pictured above, and on various branches of the tree, there are pre-made paper tags with questions that guests have to answer about the bride + groom. Throughout the reception, guests can head over to the tree, grab a question, and then take the question over to the DJ or MC. The MC will then read the question aloud for the guest to answer. Once they answer correctly, this signals the bride + groom to kiss. Cute, huh? I thought that this was a nice alternative to the clinking of water glasses and something that your guests will definitely walk away remembering!

Wonderful idea! I'm desperate to find a fun way to avoid the clinking phenomenon! :)
