The Shoe Game

Bride & Groom - - A RE­CEP­TION TO RE­MEM­BER -

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.
