The Kissing Menu

Southern Style Weddings recently posted a really awesome Real Wedding photographed by Woodward+Rick Photographers featuring Alexandra & Jeremy who were recently married in the mountains of North Carolina. The image above is simply a snippet of the entire board chock full of amazingly gorgeous images. Of course you can get the full details of their fabulous barn encased soirée over at SSW, but I wanted to highlight an idea from the bride that was simply adorable: the Kissing Menu.

Here’s how Alexandra described this Kissing Menu:

My husband put together a great list of toast alternatives ”“ instead of simply kissing when a bell was rung or a glass was clinked, we put our guests to work. Jeremy created a mini menu that listed some fun kissing alternatives. Guests could either serenade us with a song (the “Singapore Sing”), demonstrate a kiss for the bride and groom to copy (the “Carolina Kiss”), recite a limerick about love (the “Irish Blessing”) or share some time-honored marriage advice (the “French Toast”). Some amazing talent came out of the woodwork that night, including a tag-team comedic rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” and a few kisses that we can’t copy for you here.

Isn’t this so friggin’ adorable? I’m sitting here spinning ideas around that I could incorporate into my own Kissing Menu on our big day. I love the Irish Blessing and the French Toast, as Mr. Pomegranate and I have both Irish and French in our lineage, but the Singapore Sing and Carolina Kiss don’t apply. Here’s our sample menu, with a couple custom additions at the end:

The Pomegranate’s Kissing Menu
The better the performance, the longer the kiss!

The Irish Blessing
Recite a limerick regarding love.

The French Toast
Share some time-honored marriage advice.

The Kiss Me Kate
Serenade the bride and groom with a song – preferably song and dance – of your choice.

The Embarrassed Embrace
Share a funny story involving both you and either the bride or groom.

What would you serve on the Kissing Menu at your wedding?

    I’m so jealous you get to do this. I wanted to do that too but for several reasons it just won’t work out. It’d be so cool to bring out the guests’ hidden talents though!

    My FH and I were trying to come up with something similar to this for our wedding. What we came up with is to name our tables after our favorite movies and if our guests wanted us to kiss, they had to say a line from movie that their table was named. To make things a bit harder for them, we will place people strategically, like the grandparents at the Juno table…
