Most Popular Wedding Games for all Age Groups


Usually wedding receptions seem to be a run-of-the-mill affair where people come, sit, eat and go. Well, given today's fascination with creating memorable celebrations, we are sure you would not want to settle for such a typical setup at your wedding reception or any other function. So, get ready to add some essence of fun and surprise to your wedding by entertaining your guests with some enjoyable wedding games (and, no we are not revealing your wedding night games here!). So, take a look.

Do you have “IT”?

To play this game, prepare a list of some obvious items that people at any party would have, like pink lip gloss, red tie, blue footwear, silver cufflinks, etc. Call out these items one by one and whosoever has the item gets a special gift. If more than one person has that item, it will be fun to see them race to the stage to claim the prize first.

Test the couples

Let your wedding be a time to test the compatibility of the other couples around you. Ask your brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts to hold their spouse’s hand and come to the stage. Make the couples stand back to back. Hand them a paper and a pen. Ask them a few questions and tell them to write their answers on the paper without discussing with their partner. Ask them questions like their anniversary date, spouse’s birth date, their favourite colour, favourite dish, etc. Then take the sheet of paper and ask their spouse to guess the answers. This will be a fun way to find out the most compatible couple in your family.

Paper dance

This is a well-known game involving couples. In this game, spread a sheet of paper on the floor, and each couple has to dance on this sheet. Trick is that they should not step out of that sheet. As the music changes fold a part of the paper that they are dancing on. As the size of the paper decreases, you will see more and more couples fumbling towards elimination. We are sure some of your single friends would not mind teaming up as well for this one.

That is my wife’s

This game is for all the husbands out there, including Mr. Groom. Ask the wives in the party to hand over one of their belonging, like their shoe, clutch or maybe a piece of jewellery. Place them all together on a table. Then the husbands have to go to the table and find their wife’s item and take it back to her. Whoever knows his sweetheart the best will surely win an exciting prize (others will be spending a night on the couch, we feel!).

Play that tune

Indians love music, and a game around Bollywood tracks will surely get them involved. For ‘play my tune’, make a list of most popular songs and ask the DJ to play only the starting part tune of the song and then stop the song. The person who guesses the correct song first will be the winner.

Guess the ingredients

We love food, don’t we? So, test your guests’ taste buds. Select some very exquisite dish from the buffet. Pass it around among guests and ask them to taste it and write the number of ingredients used to make the dish in one minute. The person who writes maximum number of correct ingredients is the winner.

With all these games you not only keep your guests entertained, but will also give them a chance to interact with each other. These games will surely add some spice to your functions. Leave your comments below to let us know which of these you will be including to your wedding itinerary.
