Wedding Games for Reception

Wedding Games for Reception
Shoe Game
This is one of our favorite games to play at wedding receptions. The bride and groom take a
seat back-to-back in front of all their guests. The bride holds one of her shoes and one of her
groom's shoes, as does the groom. The emcee or a member of the bridal party acts as hosts,
and the couple can answer simultaneously by holding up the shoe that corresponds with their
answer. Set aside 15 minutes to play the shoe game, and include questions like:
Who said I love you first?
Who is quicker to anger?
Who made the first move?
Who has better handwriting?
Who dresses better?
Who is the better dancer?
Whose phone battery has more of a charge?
Who says I love you more?
Who is more likely to be running late?
Who is the better cook?
Who got the best grades in school?
Who do you love more than anyone in the world?
Who has more clothing?
Who is most likely to fall asleep during a movie?
Who has the better shower singing voice?
Who is the better dancer?
Who made the first move for a kiss?
Though your guests won't be playing, they'll be laughing it up as your answers reveal the truth
about how you view yourselves and each other in this silly game.
17. Create a Custom Snap Geofilter for the Wedding Reception
If you're on Snapchat, you've probably noticed that when you're at certain venues or events,
new filters will be available to you that are specific to that place or event. Those are called
geofilters, and basically, you can create one for anything. Pricing is determined by the size of
the area where the geofilter will be available. While that can add up to hundreds of thousands
for a huge arena, you can get one for less than fifty bucks if it's only being used for small area
such as wedding venue. It's only $5 an hour for a geofilter that's 20 square feet. You can design
your own geofilter commemorating the wedding. If you have social media savvy guests, they'll
be snapping away and taking advantage of that custom filter in no time!
23. Bride and Groom Trivia
At each guest's place, leave a cute sheet with trivia questions about the bride and groom (think
multiple choice, true false or fill-in-the-blank). Guests can fill out the questions whenever they
like, and later, the emcee can read off the answers. Whichever guests gets the most answers
correct at their table can take home the centerpiece.
24. Picture Scavenger Hunt
Send your guests on a digital scavenger hunt by creating a list of 20 wedding moments for them
to capture with their phones, like:
-a couple kissing
-someone taking a shot
-a delicious dessert
-someone dancing
-a group selfie
-someone crying
Not only does this give your guests a fun activity, you'll end up with even more pictures at the
end of the day. Bonus tip: turn it into a contest where you'll vote for the best photo in each
category after the wedding. This way, your guests will go for quality photos, not just quantity,
and you'll end up with better snaps. You can also instruct guests who are playing to use
your wedding hashtag and post the photos on social media to easily catalog all the fun pictures.

I Spy Wedding Game
One of the more popular wedding table games, the I Spy Wedding Game is a
win-win for guests and the newlywed couple. Similar to a scavenger hunt, this
wedding games activity instructs guests to use their personal cameras or
disposables provided by the couple to seek, find and snap pics of different
moments from your memorable day. The guests have fun doing it, and you
get to see events from the day you might’ve missed. Win-win! Below are a few
pictures to include on the guests’ I Spy Wedding Game hunt:
A group selfie
A picture of the bride in her dress
A funny face
A kiss
A sparkling drink
A tasty treat
An old-school dance move
A person laughing
A table clinking glasses
A favorite decoration
DIY Tip: Print up cards to place at each guest’s seat or create a sign or
chalkboard with the instructions. If you want your wedding photos shared on
social media, include a hashtag so you can see all the fun from your wedding
