Great Prompt Ideas to Get the Creative Juices Flowing
- Ask for advice from your married guests: Create a prompt for your guests asking for advice on issues of married life. For instance, how to share household chores, resolve arguments, and tips for keeping the romance alive in your marriage. Or you could just leave the question open-ended and enjoy the feedback!
- Ask for a story: Ask your guests to share their most memorable story or anecdote about the two of you. Some examples could be how they were involved in your meeting (if at all), where they were when they heard you were getting engaged, etc. Their answers will probably have you laughing well after your wedding day!
- Bucket list ideas: Request bucket list suggestions from your guests. Have they done something adventurous or meaningful that they think the two of you should experience too? Ask for those examples and add them to your own bucket list!
- Ask for family recipes: Even if you don’t love to cook, spending time in the kitchen together can be a lot of fun! Ask your guests for their favorite recipes to try at home; they may inspire you to establish some go-to meals!
- Ask about unique family traditions: Whether they’re passed down or born out of habit, every household has its own traditions. Ask your guests to leave examples of their most beloved family traditions to adopt into your own home.
