    @mjwyatt84:  I think the shoe game is really fun, but just make sure it doesn’t go on for too long. Not everyone wants to know every single intimate details of your lives. Otherwise, go for it!

    Yep, we had this at our wedding.  My mom made it up so it was pretty tame, and not too detailed, and maybe 12 questions long.  The guests seemed to think it was fun.

    i think it’s a cute idea, but at the same time i think it’s really weird for a reception. i feel like games should be reserved for bridal showers and bachelorette parties, not the actual wedding itself. i personally wouldn’t want to sit through that at a reception- guests are there to eat, drink, and dance!

    I think it’s super cute but I’m worried about you not having enough time for it. When would this take place – after dinner but before dancing? Are you doing an engagement party?

    I’ve been to weddings where this was done and never enjoyed it. Seemed that most guests tuned out. So know your audience. Lots of people would enjoy it, and lots wouldn’t. Know which group your guests are in.

    Maybe it would be better suited for the rehearsal dinner?  It’s a cute idea.

    I’ve been to at least 3 weddings that have done it.  It is pretty cheesy but it also gets lots of laughs.

    I’ve been to one wedding that had it and it was super fun to watch. I think they had about 10-15 questions and it only took about 10 – 15 minutes to play. Most of the time was pausing for laughter from the guests.

    My friend who had the shoe game said that games of this sort are a big part of asian weddings, so it was expected at her reception that there would be games. They actually had another game where they blindfolded the bride and they had 6 guys (her husband + 5 friends) roll up their pant leg and she had to feel each one of their calves and determine which was her husband. This one was also funny!

    @mjwyatt84:  We are having a very untraditional wedding reception with no garter, no father daughter dance, no bouquet toss, etc. My Fiance actually found this game online and suggested we do this. So, it’s in our program! My Fiance is a super jokester so, I think it will be a lot of fun! I have my sister, my Maid/Matron of Honor, coming up with the questions and giving it to our emcee so, our responses will be genuine. 🙂
