So I'm doing something a little unusual at my upcoming wedding. I am going to do a scavenger hunt after the 1st dance as a little bit of an ice breaker. Hopefully it won't turn out a disaster. My goal is just to get people to mingle - so it's not one of those all my friends/families on this side and then all of his on the other.

So this is where I need everyone's help. I need ideas for questions to find answer to, not looking for objects. They need to be people related questions, i.e. find someone who likes chinese food, find someone that is wearing red. I need enough questions so I don't have to have a lot of duplicate questions on everyone's page - so I don't want to have the chinese food question on everyone's page. I am after variety - but common things.

I will put rules in that no one can list themselves and they can't just list people that they know would have the answer to that- they acutally have to seek someone out. At the end of the hunt - I will collect all the papers and award a prize to the most answered (if there is a tie then there will be a drawing).

Thanks in advance for your help!!

P.S. To those of you that gave me all of your opinions on my wedding dress in a previous post/poll - Thank you!!! I did end up choosing the black dress and it is absoultely stunning/breathtaking.

Find someone who has been on television. (doesn't have to be in a starring role--interviewed as part of a news story, in the background, etc.)

Find someone who has a pet other than a dog, cat, bird, or fish.

Find someone with more than 6 children.

Find someone wearing a watch (amazingly few these days!).

...who came from farther than 500 miles away.

...wearing purple.

...who likes liver. (OK, maybe not this one!) icon_smile.gif

Find someone who can say good morning in at least 5 languages

Find someone who can see blood without fainting

Find someone who can name at least 5 bones in their bodies with their medical name

Find someone who can do a cartwheel

Find someone who can touch their toes with their lags straight

This is fun

Someone who's wearing contacts
Someone who goes by their 'middle' name

This sounds like a GREAT icebreaker. I think it would be loads of fun at any sort of mixed crowd party.

Here's one - find someone who was married in a Las Vegas casino/wedding chapel.
