Concerned that guests at your wedding reception will just be staring at their cellphone screens instead of interacting? Consider trying what this couple did at their reception. On each table was a deck of cards for the guests to play with, complete with the rules to a card game popular with the bride’s family and one popular with the groom’s family.
In large social gatherings a simple deck of cards can be a catalyst for mingling and conversation. Family members can catch up with each other as they play. Guests who do not know each other can play a hand or two without the awkwardness of struggling to make small talk. A deck of cards encourages people to share favorite games and memories of playing with friends and family.
