Make Matrimonial Quiztory: Add a Wedding Crossword to Your Big Day!

By Jesse LaVancher


Are you looking for something unique to incorporate into your Big Day that’s both personal to you and fun for your guests? Consider a wedding crossword puzzle! Ok, I know what you’re thinking: This sounds fun… but when would I use it and how would I make one? There are a number of ways you can bring the fun of a homemade crossword puzzle to your wedding.

1. With the Invitation

Most people receive a wedding invitation, put the date in their calendar, send in their response and then leave it at that. With a homemade crossword puzzle, your guests will feel an extra sense of excitement for the wedding. What other fun activities will there be on the big day? What delicious food will be served? Give your guests hints with a fun wedding crossword puzzle.

2. On the Program

Almost all weddings have a bit of wait time at the beginning of the ceremony. Place a small crossword puzzle into your program to give people a quiet activity to enjoy while they wait for the main event to begin. Fill the puzzle with clues about love and marriage or give special clues about the bride and groom and the ceremony about to take place. What fun!

3. As Conversation Starters

Whether your guests are old friends from school or new friends meeting for the first time at your wedding, a wedding crossword puzzle can get the conversation going. You can give each table or guest their own unique crossword with specific clues and memories, or you can make a general crossword puzzle for everyone to enjoy. Then watch as your guests begin to bond over shared memories and make new ones of their own!

4. As Wedding Favors

Wedding favors can be tricky. You want to give your guests something to remember the day, but not something that ends up cluttering their homes. A crossword puzzle commemorating your event fits the bill. Remind guests of the songs played or of the decadent cake served with clues they will remember years later. You can even pair the puzzle with monogrammed pencils and a small eraser or pencil sharpener. Top it off with a picture of the couple on the back for a complete package.


If you haven’t proposed to your special someone yet, homemade crossword puzzles make for a great engagement story, too!
