When we shared Ariel's awesome Minglo (mingling + bingo) party idea over on Offbeat Home & Life, Homie Marina told us she used this idea with great success at one of her wedding parties…
I did this at my wedding pre-party, in a super-low-tech Word table. It was AWESOME. We chose stuff like:
traveled more than 500 miles to get here
speaks a language other than English
plays a musical instrument
willing to sing to you right now,
less than half your age
more than twice your age
It was especially awesome in mixed company.
I think it got the young folks talking to the old folks, and my family talking to his family, and local friends talking to far-flung friends. Good times.
