    I was at a rehearsal dinner where the bride and groom played, and it was a huge hit!

    Was a hit for us!  

    – Don’t make it super long, otherwise it’ll get boring, like anything else.  We had about 15 questions, and that was perfect.  

    – Think about who your guests; will they appreciate more G-rated questions, or can you slip in some PG-13 ones?  Most of DH’s family are older and more conservative, so our raciest question was ‘Now that you’re married, who will be the first to say, “not tonight”‘.  

    – Have fun with it!  There’s so many silly questions you can ask.  More then likely, your guests will think its hilarious and might even be surprised with some of the answers!  Granted, my Darling Husband apparently fibbed on a few of them to get more laughs, but whatevs.

    We played the shoe game and it was hit with our “older crowd” who did not have to get out of their seats.  People thought it was funny.  I wish I had the pro-pics and video to show you but we don’t have them yet!! =D

    @peachacid:  Hah!

    Simply put; Bride and Groom sit facing opposite directions, holding their own shoe in one hand and their spouses in the other.  MC/DJ or whomoever asks couple-y type questions like, “Who is the biggest bed hog” and the B&G each raise up the shoe of whom they think is the best answer, without knowing the other’s answer.

    @peachacid:  Took up some time, everyone had a good laugh and got some great photos and memories out of it.  So sure, “precious”.

    @CherryWaves:  Yeah, that’s the best word I could think of.  It’s definitely not my style…too much attention on the bride and groom.  It’s cute, though, and for people who like really cutesy stuff, it’s perfect.

    Awe I want to have a wedding just to play this game lol. SO thinks its seems like a really fun game to play during what would have been our reception. Maybe we’ll include it in our post elopement celebration.
