Games for your wedding reception
May 06, 2009
While it may not be the traditional thing to do, many couples have opted to incorporate various games into their wedding reception for their guests. This may be because the majority of the guests aren't into dancing or because certain religious beliefs prohibit such activities.
So instead, try some popular wedding reception games, as a way to make your party more unique for you and your guests.
One popular game is called Switch the Shoes, which has the bride and the groom stand back-to-back in front of the party and answer questions from the DJ or from a designated member of the wedding party. The title comes from the couple switching one shoe with each other so they have the bride's shoe in one hand and the groom's shoe in the other.
The couple is then asked questions such as "Who will wash the dishes without being asked?" or "Who will walk the dog late at night?" To answer, the bride and the groom will hold up the shoe of the person they think will do the chore.
As for a game everyone can participate in, you can never go wrong with a round of musical chairs.
