What livens up a party more than a fun and entertaining game that brings everyone together? Wedding games are a perfect way to keep your guests on their feet and laughing the night away.
Here are the top 10 best games to play at a wedding:
1. The Shoe Game—This one will for sure get you and your guests laughing. The object of the game is for the bride and groom to guess which one of them is more likely to relate to certain questions. Take two chairs and sit them back to back in the middle of the dance floor. The bride and groom sit facing away from each other with one shoe from each of them in either hand. When the MC asks a certain question, such as, “who wears the pants in the relationship?”, the bride and groom each answer by raising the corresponding shoe in the air to whoever they believe wears the pants in the relationship. Everyone gets a good laugh and its fun to see your partner’s answers.
2. ISpy- This is a great game to get your guests involved and taking pictures. If guests would like to participate, had out disposable cameras with a checklist of things they need to snag a quick pic of. The list can be as funny or serious as you decide to make it. Examples of pictures your guests need to capture are the wedding cake, first dance, group photo at the table, someone making a funny face, a new friend you met, and a creative selfie.
3. Guess Who, Bride or Groom?- This is a more casual game you can have on the tables at your wedding for guests to partake in. Set out pieces of paper with character traits that the bride and groom can relate to and guess who said or did what first. For example, who made the first move? Who is a better cook? Who spends more money? You can reveal the answers in a fun way later in the night and offer a prize to the winner who got the most correct answers if you choose.
4. Flip Cup- If alcoholic beverages is what keeps your friends entertained this is the party game for you. Separate into two teams, bridesmaids vs. groomsmen or whatever you please and get a long table with party cups filled partially with your drink of choice. One team member from each side of the table start the game by finishing their drink and then placing their party cup on the edge of the table facing up. While using one or two fingers you must flip the cup until it has successfully flipped and is now facing down. As soon as the team member in front of you flips the cup to face down position, the next team member can begin drinking and follow the same procedure. The game finishes when one team has successfully flipped all of their cups before the other team.
5. Wedding Guest Bingo- This game acts as a wedding guest scavenger hunt. Make a bingo sheet for guests to accomplish by going around the wedding reception and finding certain people to sign their name in order to check a category off. For example, one square on the bingo chart could be to find someone who is left handed, was born in November or is related to the groom. The first person to complete their bingo chart wins.
6. Wed-Libs- Another fun and lowkey game that can be played by your wedding guests at their tables. Wed-libs is just like mad-libs but wedding edition. Come up with a creative and funny story with fill in the blanks for your guests to write in adjectives, verbs and nouns to create their own wedding story for you. Get creative with it and everyone will be sure to get a good laugh.
7. Cornhole- If you have a big outdoor space at your wedding, cornhole is a classic game that your guests will be sure to love. It is very easy to get a customized cornhole set with the bride and groom’s initials or last name on it and it will look perfectly wherever you put it.
8. Giant Jenga- Jenga is another classic game your guests will love. Big jenja pieces can also be customized and bought ahead of time to be set outside for guests to play over and over again. This is a great one for adults and kids to play together.
9. Date Jar- This one isn’t so much a game but rather an activity for your guests to be apart of. Set out a jar at the gifts table or bar or some other stand guests will go up to where they can write out date ideas for the newlyweds to complete. It’s always hard to find new things to do but after your wedding you’ll never run out of ideas again!
10. Photo Booth- An old fashioned photo booth is a great way for your guests to take pictures and have a souvenir from your wedding to take home. Be sure to buy A LOT of film strips, this will definitely get used. Set out some props and make it fun!
