The dating game goes wireless
Artists at Work Bring out the hidden creative talents of your guests with this fun game called “Artists at Work”. Other ideas: Hide a trinket under one chair at each table; place a special sticker under one plate at each table; first person to sing at each table; first person that used the bathroom at each table…and the list goes on, but you get the idea.
I found this game originally browsing youtube and it works great for weddings, anniversaries and engagement parties. Raise the laughometer with this simple yet fun game of “Marriage Advice 101”. Give each a sheet of paper and a large tip marker (allowing seated guests to see the final products). Gather a group of willing guests who will instantly be transformed into the next Picasso. Fancy twist: During this segment of the night, why not also pay a special tribute to both sets of parents with a little video montage of their lives? This is a simple wedding game aimed to help the bride and groom give away their beautiful centerpieces to the guests. When did the bride and groom kiss for the first time? ), the most loving couple, the most active couple, and any other couples you admire.” Sometimes you’ll see some great hesitation faces like their really not sure, or even better when you ask a question like… Sometimes the bride will put up her shoe, and the groom will put up his. Guests will have to do a little moving of their own in this wedding game we call, “Shake Shake Shake”.
The point is to have fun and enjoy the entertainment (and to get the bride and groom to kiss, of course)!
Have the groom then sit in the other chair facing his groomsmen and remove both of his shoes as well. Have the Master of Ceremonies (MC) announce this brave feat of strength as he piggybacks his new bride around the reception hall, symbolizing their new journey together as husband and wife. Safety comes first, so please prepare accordingly if you plan on using this game!
Trade one shoe each so both the bride and groom have one of each of their shoes. 3) Who spends the most time getting ready to go out 4) Who is more into their looks? Another possibility: Tell the groom he must get from point A to point B in the reception hall with his bride but her feet can’t touch the floor!
Set two chairs back to back in the middle of the dance floor. Provide guests at each reception table with index cards and pens.
Ask the bridal party to stand about 10′ in front of the chairs… Their task: to come up with the best marriage advice they can give for the newlyweds. Award gifts for “The funniest advice given”, “The best advice given”, and any other category you can think of.
To celebrate the beginning of your new journey with your husband, why not celebrate the triumphs and ‘bests’ of your guests? Give a lavish gift to the couple that has been married the longest (is that not inspiring?
