Wedding Reception Fun

After all the stress and excitement of the wedding ceremony is done, the wedding reception is the time to celebrate your newfound nuptial bliss and have fun with those that you chose to share those moments with. Below are four fun games and activities to ensure a great time for you and your guests on your big day.


I-Spy Scavenger Hunt

This fun and interactive game is a creative way to capture great candid photos and memorable moments at your wedding. Have your guests use their smartphones or digital cameras to snap photos of the scenes listed on the scavenger list. Be sure to include a number or email address on the bottom where guests can send the photos.


Question Booklet

At each table leave a small notepad with one marriage related question on it and a few pens. This way guests can give the new couple advice or input on various marriage topics. Questions can include: What should we name our first child? What should we do on date night? What's the secret to a long and happy marriage?


The Shoe Game

This entertaining game is a fun way to involve all your guests as you and your spouse see how well you really understand each other and your relationship. Begin by placing two chairs back-to-back on the dance floor. Then the couple sits in them and removes both of their shoes, and trades a shoe with one another so that they’re holding one of each. Then, have a designated person ask a series of questions about marriage in general and about the couple specifically. After each question, the couple holds up the shoe of the person they think has or is the best answer to the question. For example: Who will do all the cooking? Who will spend the most money? Who is the softy in the relationship.


The Perfect Pairs Game

This game is perfect if you want your guests to mix and mingle. Find-your-match is another fun and interactive game to get your guests up, moving, and getting to know one another. Each card will have the name of one half of a famous couple; it is your guests’ job to find their match by the end of the night. Be sure to explain the rules at the beginning of the night

I hope these suggestions provide great icebreakers for your reception or even inspiration to create your own. Happy celebrating!
