I am having 2 receptions, as our families live thousands of kms apart and most were not able to travel to one location.
My mom is planning the following game for the second reception, and we’re looking for a few more ideas, if y’all could be of help!
The game I thought of is “est”
1. Who has been married the longest? Have everyone over 25 years stand and sit down by yearly increments till one couple left. bottle of wine and glasses gift.
2. Who has been married the shortest? Not including you two. Under 5 years and down… bottle of wine
3. Longest honeymoon? 10 weeks and down picture frame
4. Shortest engagement? 10 weeks and down cook book
5. Bride born farthest away? 2000 miles and go up by 500’s cook book
6. Most guests at wedding reception? over 100, go up by 50’s TBD
Many thanks in advance!

What about doing something a little more interactive? Like “who has the best story to tell about the bride/groom”, or “who can use their centerpiece in the most creative way”. That way it will include people who have never been married and bring a little life to the game instead of just ‘stand up … then sit down … then get a prize’
Are you playing any other games? I’m in the same boat (planning a second ‘other home’ reception 2000 miles from where my wedding was) and am on the lookout for good wedding party games!
Another good one is the shoe game: bride and groom sit back to back with their shoe in one hand, and their partner’s shoe in the other. Someone calls out questions (like ‘who’s the better cook’, ‘who has the wackiest family’, etc.) and the bride and groom raise either their show or their partner’s shoe up in the air for who they think matches that description in the relationship. Definitely a fun one!

photo scavenger hunt – my friend had those disposable cameras on each table and a list of required photos, each with point values. for example, groom kissing bride 5 pts, guests toasting bride, 10 pts, bride’s parents in same shot, 20 pts (they were divorced). it was fun and the end there was a prize to be shared by the whole table who won. plus they got a bunch of fun pictures out of it.
you could do something similar with trivia about the bride and grorom.

Youngest guest? (if you’re having children)
