Send your guests on a digital scavenger hunt by creating a list of 20 wedding moments for them to capture with their phones, such as the newlyweds kissing; someone cheers-ing; a group selfie; etc. Not only does this give your guests a fun activity, but you'll also end up with even more pictures at the end of the day. Up the stakes with your photo scavenger hunt by turning 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. Would you like to include this?
The Wedding Shoe Game is a popular reception activity that tests the couple’s knowledge of each other. From who is the funniest to who is the best cook, the newlyweds will have to answer a variety of questions without seeing one another’s answers. Would you like to include this?
If you are going to include this game would you like to use your shoes or the Barbie and or Ken wedding dolls I have?
Included in this game are the couple and two of the wedding party. The players are forced to reveal secrets you didn’t know they had. This can be an extremely hilarious game for the players and guests watching. Would you like to include this?
At each guest's seat, leave a cute sheet with some trivia questions about the two of you—they could be multiple-choice, true/false questions, or fill-in-the-blank. Guests can fill out the questions whenever they like, and before the end of dinner I can read off some of the answers. Whichever guest gets the most answers correct at their table can take home the centerpiece. Would you like to include this?
A great way to get stories flowing! To play i will announce a series of hilarious questions, prompting the audience to sit down or stand up for “yes” or “no.” Each table ends the game knowing new, interesting facts about their dinner companions and the newlyweds themselves. Would you like to include this?
Leave a collection of advice cards on every table and I will encourage your guests young and old to provide you with great advice for your marriage. Would you like to include this?
Keep things exciting for years to come! Set up a fun spot for guests to suggest date night ideas for all your years together. Would you like to include this?
Interactive dancing games are a great way to break up the last several hours at the end of the night. During one particular song, get all guests, selected guests or wedding party up on the dance floor to show their craziest moves, only to freeze when the DJ abruptly stops the music. The couple can then choose the winners after several rounds. Would you like to include this?
A great way to get your DJ in on the fun is to incorporate a game of Name That Tune into the dancing portion of the evening. As the DJ plays a short portion of the song, the crowd has to guess the song. Vary the songs throughout generations, and even include the kids in on the fun. Name the tune first for a prize or a special place on the dance floor! Would you like to include this?
Puzzle-loving crowd? Create your own crossword for your guests with hints and questions from your relationship. On each plate setting, include a small crossword puzzle with hints and answers that showcase favorite tidbits from the newlywed’s history. Include “where we first met” or “where partner 1 grew up” as some fun examples. This crossword puzzle game also gets the table guests chatting and making new friends. Would you like to include this?
Guest books come in all forms now, why not make yours interactive for the rest of your marriage? Set out a Jenga tower with instructions to write a message on the block itself. Guests can either play the game as they write, or build the tower up from the bottom. Play with the message filled set after the wedding or arrange the blocks in a large picture frame as a unique collage. Would you like to include this?
Helping a wedding table bond is not always simple. Add a little competition to the mix by challenging each table to rush the dance floor when a particular song plays throughout the night. The best show of silliness or grace wins the dance competition at the end of the evening. Would you like to include this?
Have a collection of balloons throughout the reception space or in a festive pattern attached to aboard. Instruct each guest to pop one balloon each. Every balloon includes a secret message, instruction, or a prize! Reward a few lucky poppers with first dibs at the dessert table or a champagne toast of their own. Would you like to include this?
What’s just as fun as cutting into a wedding cake? Whacking a wedding-cake-themed pinata filled with lots of delicious candy! Choose an elegant or completely silly pinata to shake things up during the dessert. You will be blindfolded to see who can break through the pinata to release all the goodies inside. Be sure to include bags or small to-go boxes for all the big and little kids to gather their treasure. Would you like to include this?
Want to encourage mingling among your guests? Another wedding game's ice breaker is Bingo. In this version, guests don't sit and mark off a card as numbers are called. Instead, they have to take their card around to the other guests to find someone in the room who can claim "That's Me!" given the clue provided, and then make it official by writing in their initials. When creating the cards, try to avoid being too generic with descriptions and think about unique clues to describe your guests. Would you like to include this?
Test your guest's mushiness and see who can be first to match the saying or song to the correct romantic film they come from. Would you like to include this? 
Want to give guests another way to be engaged in speeches then supply each with a speech bingo card. They then need to listen carefully during the speeches. If they hear a phrase listed on thier card spoken they need to mark it off. When guests have all items marked off and shout bingo, they win. Would you like to include this? 
Find the guest bingo is a great way to get everyone at your wedding mingling. Give each guest a find a guest bingo game card and watch as they find a person to match each of the clues. The first guest to shout “Bingo” wins! Would you like to include this?
Give each table a Guess the meaning from the emojis listed card. Whichever table has the most correct answers is for sure a Generation Y, or Millennials Generation Z, even if only by the heart. Would you like to include this?
Personalise your wedding table numbers with two facts, one true and one false. The guests at the relevant table have to discuss which fact is fake before you reveal the answers during the speeches! This is a great way to get your guests chatting and laughing together. Would you like to include this?
This is a great idea if you’re on the hunt for creative wedding table name ideas! Name your tables after your favourite songs and put a notice on each table revealing that they have to get up and dance when their song is played. This is a great way to make sure the dance floor is full when the evening party gets underway. You could even award prizes for the best dancer from each table and for the keenest to get on the dance floor! Would you like to include this?
Pop a kissing menu on each table and watch as the requests roll in. The Kissing Menu Game is sure to crack a few laughs among your guests particularly if they go for the conga line or Macarena options! Would you like to include this?
Give each guest a Mad Libs card complete with blank spaces for them to fill in, you may be surprised with what they come back with! Mad Libs will definitely give you a giggle after the wedding day and will be sure to make your guests laugh between courses. Would you like to include this?
Guests stand in a row with thier back toward the newlywed playing the game. The other newlywed stands amongst the guests. The newlywed playing then needs to feel the bottoms of the people in the row to try and find her new spouse. Really fun game later in the evening. Would you like to include?
Select one guest before the game to be the "victim" and select 6 other people to be in on the game. It will be explained that the table making the most noise for the best dancer will be the winner. I will then give each person an eye mask so that they will be blindfolded for the game. When the victim has the blindfold on the other 6 people will leave the floor and the music will start. Watch as the "victim" groves thier moves over the dance floor. After the song finishes the "victim" removes the eye mask exposing the joke. Would you like to include?
