Wedding receptions are great because it means the most stressful part is over, and it’s party time! And time for the Wedding shoe game…
During this epic celebration involving cake, food, and refreshments, games are often played in between dancing for fun.
Wedding games are a fun way to celebrate the wedding couple and give their guests a few laughs, too! This simple game involves nothing more than the bride, the groom, their shoes and two chairs. Of course, the game works with many different partner arrangements (such as bride/bride, groom/groom) and can be played at other commitment ceremonies (such as handfastings, ring-exchanges, engagements, anniversaries, etc.).
HOW TO PLAY THE SHOE GAME
The wedding shoe game is becoming ever increasingly more popular at wedding receptions. While many still haven’t heard of it, it might just be played at the next reception you attend.
How To Play:
1. The bride and groom are seated on chairs in the middle of the dance floor or venue (if the dance floor separate from the main guest area), back-to-back.
2. Both the bride and groom remove their shoes and exchange one so that they are both holding one of each other’s shoe. The bride will have one of her shoes and one of her partner’s shoes. The groom will have one of his shoes and one of his partner’s shoes.
3. During the game, a series of questions are asked, and the answer is either “the bride” or “the groom.” The bride and groom answer the questions by holding up the shoe of the correct partner as their answer. For instance, if the question was “Who usually makes breakfast in the morning” and the answer is the groom, they should both hold up the groom’s shoes.
4. The game usually lasts about 10 minutes with a series questions being asked.
5. You can either plan the questions ahead of time and have them written somewhere, have the audience shout questions (be careful with this one), ask the guests to write questions down on paper, or use a combination of all three methods (this could be a little chaotic).
Game Question Tips:
• Depending on the kind of audience present, we recommend best to keep the questions clean.
• Keep tally on how many questions they answered the same just to tell them for fun.
• If taking questions from the audience, be sure to have someone go through them to ensure they are appropriate. You can provide note cards and writing utensils for guests to write their questions down. Appointing one person as a spokesperson is probably a good idea.
• Have note cards at each table for guests to write down their question suggestions before the game to provide more time for filtering.
