Fun wedding games that are centered on your wedding are the best kind of games to play.
We’ve all been to receptions that are standard and boring – we welcome and celebrate the new married couple, watch them dance, and enjoy cake with them.
But creative couples often enjoy coming up with fun wedding reception games that include the entire guest list.
We can all say we have been to wedding receptions which are fairly boring and forgettable. The standard reception has now become a kind of drinking and dancing celebration to welcome and celebrate the newly married couple.
If you want your wedding reception to be unique and remembered because it was better than other wedding receptions then you need to think through what you can do to bring everyone together.
A great way to do this is to come up with some great games for the reception.
The reason for using games at a wedding reception is that they are a great way to get people out of their chairs to meet and interact with the other guests. They break the ice as individuals who might not know each other have fun together. They are also a way for people to feel really part of the celebration, not only observers.
One fun and active game that can be played by all your guests, including grandma as well as the young children, is “want it now”.
In this wedding game, you designate a master of ceremonies (if you have a DJ for your wedding reception, this person can serve as the DJ). The MC will have a list of “wants” prepared before the reception. Everyone sits at their tables, and waits to hear the command. The MC says he wants a person with painted toenails. All the women with painted toenails run to the front of the room, toward the MC. Each time a table sends someone to the front first, they get a point.
Points should be tallied during the course of this game and prizes awarded at the end of the game. Be sure to have some obvious “wants”, as are the painted toenails, or a man with a mustache or a child with a pink dress. But also include some surprises, like “a man with a brown purse” which will require a man to find a woman at his table with the brown purse and run up to the front of the room with that.
WEDDING GAMES ARE FUN
Another fun wedding reception game that includes all your guests is musical chairs using men as the chairs. All the men line up and kneel on one knee. The women begin playing the game of musical chairs, but when the music stops, they must find a knee to sit on. No “chairs” are removed during the version of the game, but instead people are eliminated when either the man falls down when the woman finds his knee or when the woman falls down. Both are out either way, and if both fall down, they are also both out then (as well as perhaps a bit bruised). This is a fun game that often brings on gales of laughter and adds to a relaxed reception atmosphere.
There is no doubt that well-chosen wedding reception games can make a wedding reception go with a swing!
