The Shoe Game
You’re sure to get the party started with this fun game! During your reception place two chairs back to back for you and your spouse, then trade a shoe so you’re holding one of each. Your MC then asks a series of questions, such as ‘Who said I love you first?’, ‘Who is the better driver?’ and ‘Who is more romantic?’. Hold up the shoe of the person who you think answers the question! Have your bridal party come up with the questions beforehand, and encourage guests to get involved for a memorable event!
Wedding-appropriate activities will keep your guests amused while you’re away having photos, or provide some fun later in the evening. Lawn games such as pétanque, bowls or oversized chess and Connect Four are perfect for a spring or summer wedding. During the cooler months, get your guests interacting with indoor games such as a table-vs-table quiz on the newlyweds, a wine-tasting lesson or a ‘murder mystery’ game.
‘Icebreakers’ – where quirky questions are written on the back of place cards – are brilliant to bring together guests who’ve never met before, or ask them to fill in the blanks of a Mad Lib on the back of your menu.
‘I Spy’ is another light-hearted activity requiring your guests to take photos of specific parts of your wedding, such as their favourite decoration, the best or craziest dancer in action or the dish they enjoyed the most. Provide disposable or Polaroid cameras, or ask guests to hashtag their photos online.
