This is a fun idea that I saw at a wedding
Before the party make up a list of questions that you will be asking
the guests of honor. At the shower get the bride and groom to sit with
their backs to each other and instruct them to take off their shoes.
The couple then exchanges one of their shoes for their spouses. This
is when the fun begins.
The object of the game is not to win, but to see what their TRUE
opinions of the other are. With one shoe in each of their hands, you
then begin to ask the questions with them responding by raising up the
respective shoe. Example questions are: Who takes the longest to get
ready in the morning? Who drives the worst? Who hogs the bed covers?
This is really fun and the bride and groom really get a kick out of
doing it too.
Find the Hole
The bride-to-be is to be blindfolded and placed
in one corner of the room with a broom stick between her legs. The
groom-to-be is to stand in the other corner of the room (not
blindfolded) with a toilet paper roll between his legs. He is to coach
her to find him and to get the stick in the hole. She and he will say
very funny things.
Have someone write down what they say to each other and the
instructions that are given. At the end of the game, have the person
that was writing everything down, stand up and say "This is what the
bride and groom will be saying the night of their honeymoon....". This
is a guaranteed hit!
My best friend, who will be married next month,
dated her fianc� for 7 1/2 years before they were engaged. Therefore,
their friends are all the same. We are having a couples shower for
them so that everyone can join in showering the couple, men and women
I decided that the party would start with a
scavenger hunt. The bride has to find the groom and vice versa. A
separate couple will be stationed at each check point and we'll cross
their paths several times ("you just missed the groom" kind of thing.)
They both know there will be a scavenger hunt,
but no other details
How long can you hula?
You buy several hula hoops according to haw many
guests you have. For example, I am having about 80 guests and 10 at
each table: 8 hula hoops. One person per table comes up and the idea
of the game is who can hula hoop the longest. And that person wins a
prize. (Don't forget the music)
We blindfolded the bride to be and lined up
several guys. She had to feel their legs and decide which ones
belonged to her beloved. The guys kept on switching places to try and
confuse her, but she knew her man's legs! It was very funny.
What does the future hold?
This is another version of the "Madlib" game.
Instead of mad-libbing the story of how the bride and groom met, make
the story a prediction of their future. Include careers they'll have,
number of children, names of children, where they'll retire, etc. You
can see the potential for some very funny responses.
Type the story beforehand, leaving blanks for the mad lib, then fill
in the blanks at the shower. Give it to the bride when the story is
complete, and it provides a funny remembrance for the couple
throughout their marriage.
What's in the sock?
Purchase 4-5 pairs of white athletic socks.
Gather the same number (8 - 10) of items that the bride and groom will
need on their honeymoon. Hotel key, sun block, condoms, corkscrew,
etc. If the bride & groom are going to an exotic location, some of the
items can pertain to the location. Just be sure to tell the guest
where they are going.
Place one item in each sock, tie it closed and pin a number on it.
Guests must feel each sock and try to determine what is in it, then
write down their guess.
Oh, one last thing - no one can use their hands to feel the socks -
only their feet. After everyone is done, open the socks and reveal the
items. The winner has the most correct items
