There are many different ways to have the bride and groom kiss at the reception without using the traditional clinking of glass. Here is a cute poem that can be used in place of it:
Please no clinking of glasses or bells rung out loud,
We’d prefer something different from this lovely crowd.
We’ve filled a box with Hershey chocolates and set it aside
Near the Head Table at which sit the Groom and the Bride.
If it’s a kiss that you’re after come forward and stand,
Now roll up your sleeve and dig in with your hand.
Reach down deep and retrieve a Kiss of GOLD,
A smooch between the Bride and Groom you’ll behold.
But if you pull out a SILVER Kiss in your quest,
Then you’ll be required to kiss another guest!
