We all know, a boring wedding is every former bride and groom’s worst nightmare. If the countdown to your wedding is on and your big day is finally on the calendar, and you want to make sure that everyone has a great joy at your special event, get some fun, creative ideas to be the best host in town. In addition to delicious food, flowing drinks and a killer playlist, some couples like to get the party started with a few fun activities.
If games sound like a fun idea to you, have it at your wedding! Check out the 7 most amazing and fun games to keep your guests engaged and entertained during your wedding day’s downtime:
WEDDING SHOE GAME
To get your guests more involved, and to help them know the bride and groom better, one popular game is the Wedding Shoe Game. In this the bride and groom are seated in chairs back to back, shoes are removed so that the groom holds one of his own and one of the bride’s, and vice versa for the bride.
Then someone asks silly questions like “Who has a better shower singing voice?” or “Who is more likely to fall asleep during a movie?”
Just in case you do not like the thought of using shoes, you can use flags or something similar.
DRESS UP PHOTOBOOTH
Create a DIY photo booth filled with fun props for your guests to take selfies and group shots in. You can make it silly with boas, over-sized glasses, and mustache sticks, or keep it classy with pretty flowers, ornate frames or signs that commemorate the wedding date. You can even make a giant cardboard Polaroid cut out
Who doesn’t love the classic block-stacking game Jenga? Since marriage is also all about balancing, we can say that no game can best represent a marriage than Jenga.
You can also use a large, outdoor-sized version as a wedding game and include “Did You Know” facts about you and your partner on each block for a personalized touch.
CHINESE FORTUNE STICKS
Place a box of these by the guest book or one at each table. Guests get to draw a stick out to reveal their fortune.
WHEEL OF FUN
To encourage major guest interaction, consider creating a custom wheel of activities that can be spun. This creative option includes details like “Pick a Couple to Kiss,” “Show Us Your Best Dance Moves,” and “Bride and Groom Kiss.”
A poker station is usually a big hit with the gentlemen.
Adult guests can be slow to the dance floor, but that is where kids can come in handy. Gather everyone around for a kids dance-off. Have kids dance together, or pair up an adult and kid to challenge one another to the best moves.
Even though this idea is gaining popularity, many are divided on this topic. Some think it is great to get the crowd involved, while some think that there is no need to add embarrassment to the day.
But, always remember that each part of your big day is special, and you as the bride or the groom are going to remember it differently than everyone else. So, make the most out of it and enjoy your day to the fullest!
