I have seen prizes given to the person or couple who travelled the furthest to get to the wedding.

I have also been to weddings where the MC asked everyone who was married to stand up. He then eliminated couples by asking everyone married less than 5 years, then 10, then 15 etc etc  to sit down. The prize eventually goes to the couple who have been married the longest.

Other Ideas:

Take Home the Table Centerpieces

To determine which guests got to bring home the table centerpieces, emcee asks a question. The guest who answers the question correctly, gets to bring home the table centerpiece. For example, the emcee can ask the question “Who is carrying a picture of their mother-in-law in their wallet?” The first guest to raise their hand and show proof, is the lucky winner!

Musical Money

This game can be played for the table centerpieces at a formal shower, or at a wedding reception. Have your DJ or a shower guest play some music while you tell ONE person at each table to take out a dollar bill. As the music begins, pass the dollar around the table, make the direction of the dollar bill change a few times, and then much like musical chairs, when the music stops, the action stops. Have the person holding the dollar bill stand up, and all those standing must submit to a game of “Simon Says” (this is your chance to make your friends do some really crazy things!). After the people have been put through the ringer, say “Simon Says go back to your table. Simon says give the dollar back to the person who took it out of their wallet, because THEY are the person who wins the centerpiece!!!!” Everyone will get a good laugh at the fact that these people did these silly things and STILL did not get the centerpiece… makes for great photos as well!.

Treasure Hunt – Having a table to table treasure hunt is another fun way to find out who gets the wedding reception centerpiece.


Have the DJ, bandleader, or MC go from table to table with a pre-arranged list of items that each table has to come up with. The first guest at each table to produce each requested item wins the centerpiece.

Pick items such as a lipstick, a compact, a business card, etc.
