When a couple organises their wedding, it is a priority to have their guests enjoy the day. One of the ways to do this is by involving them in the fun.
So these are seven fun games you can definitely play at your wedding as given by wedding DJ, DJam Mikolo.
This is by far one of the most recognisable wedding game. The MC asks the couple questions about their love story and personality. Questions like…Who said I love you first? Who is more romantic? Who dresses better? The couple is seated backing each other and use the corresponding shoe to answer the question simultaneously. It makes for great engagement as the audience gets to see how the couple views themselves.
Guess the lyrics
Here, the bride and the groom take turns in picking a number. The DJ then plays the corresponding song for a few seconds in which the person playing has to guess the song and sing along. The winner (Best on having known the songs) is voted by the audience.
Spin the wheels
The wheel will have romantic gestures on it which can be as sweet as reciting a love poem or as naughty as giving a lap dance. Both the bride and groom take turns in spinning the wheel and performing accordingly. It is also another way to get the audience involved as one of the options could be for the couple to pick people to perform certain tasks.
This is a great one to get the bridal party on their feet. Commonly seen during West African Weddings, the MC can list a number of popular dances( Calipso, gwaragwara, salsa, azonto) for which the DJ will be on standby to play. Members of the bridal party can be picked at random to get up and dance. Another option is for them to choose a number without knowing what they will get and go to the dance floor, pulling off strokes of dance written on the card.
Before the wedding, the couple would have discussed different aspects about themselves and their love story with the MC. This will form the basis of the Q and A which the audience will then be encouraged to answer. Virtual guests can easily play along. The couple then gets to be the judge and might even decide to gift the winners a prize. There are also situations where the trivia can be general knowledge to allow for even more audience participation. The question examples include;
- Who said “I love you” first?
- Who is the first one to have a crush on the other?
- Where was the first kiss?
- What was the first film the couple ever saw together?
- What was the his/her first job?
- What’s the first thing he/she does in the morning?
- Where did you go for your first date?
Word search puzzles
Children and adults love a word search. They are great to kill time and easy to customise. The word search can feature things peculiar to the couple like where they met, pet names, favourite items and the list goes on. Have them printed and on tables for guests to complete or even take home to finish.
I know you are thinking this is more for the kids but adult colouring books have really become a thing in recent times. A picture of the couple in form of an outline is one way to go or maybe the logo or even the bouquet. Make sure to have a pack of crayons or coloured pencils to go along with it. It would definitely make for a lovely wedding memento for the couple long after the event is over.
With these, we assure you your wedding will be fun.
So what game will you be playing on your big day? Or if you have already tied the knot, do you remember which games you played?
