Wedding Reception Games


The bride and groom sit back to back and remove both shoes. They both trade a shoe so that they’re holding one of each.

A designated person will then ask a series of questions about the couple and their relationship. After each question, the bride and groom hold up the shoe of the spouse they think is the best answer to the question.

Here are some questions that might be asked during the shoe game:

Who will do most of the cooking?
Who said “I love you” first?
Who has more siblings?
Who made the first move?
Who is the better driver?
Who got better grades in school?
Who is smarter?
Who is more likely to get injured?
Who is more likely to be running late?
Who starts the argument?
Who is first to say “I’m sorry?”
Who will be most likely to wake up grumpy?
Who is more likely to get lost?

Who has the best fashion sense?
Who will take out the trash?
Who is messier?
Who wants kids more?
Who will do most of the cooking?
In a fight, who is most likely to say ‘sorry’ first?
Who tells the best jokes?
Who’s car is the cleanest?
Who loves who most?


The rules are that the bride and groom have to kiss when one of the following occurs (the better the performance the longer the kiss): Whenever…
* the wedding couple gets asked a newlywed trivia question by a guest
* a table sings a clip from a love song for the couple
* a guest tells a joke or does something that makes the couple laugh
* a story is shared that involves both the bride and groom
* someone gives the bride and groom marriage advice


Find out how well the groom knows his bride. Blindfold the groom and then line up a mixed bag of willing guests, ranging from young to old male and female. Let the groom make his way along the line of ‘brides’ and try to find the real bride amongst the decoys.
