During the ceremony:
1. Adding a place for your guests to offer some type of blessing or some words of wisdom is a great way to have your guests involved. After receiving all the responses back, have your ceremony MC read the best of the best.
You must first choose a list of questions. Or you could opt to have your bridesmaids create the list so that both you and your future husband are completely blown away when asked. At your reception (or at your engagement party or co-ed bridal shower) after a few drinks and dinner, sit back to back each holding one of your own shoes and one of your partners shoes. Then have someone ask you both a set of silly questions, you raise the correct shoe of who you think fits the answer the best and it turns into a hilarious he-said, she-said kind of thing. As you can see from these pictures.

Every great wedding has a lively dance floor, and dancing the night away with dear friends and long-lost relatives is often one of the best parts of saying “I do.” But what about guests who don’t want to dance — or aren’t able to? How can they have all-night fun at your wedding?
We have a few suggestions below for ways to keep your guests entertained all night — and reminiscing about the BEST. WEDDING. EVER. long into the future.
1. Have board games scattered throughout the room
This is a fun option to offer alongside traditional dancing entertainment: Guests can take a spin on the dance floor, then relax for a game of Chutes & Ladders, and non-dancers can make the rounds playing every game at the reception.

So you’re looking for some wedding reception games that will give your guests something else to do BESIDES dancing? (Because while some of us love dancing, some of us don’t want to dance at our wedding). We’ll, you’re not alone.
We hosted a game night wedding reception so it could be more interactive for everyone. We bought most of the prizes on sale, but still saved a lot by not hiring a DJ or band, which comes with an added cost of a dance floor and lights.
That quote from Jami and Jamie’s backyard game night wedding inspired me to put together a roundup of great games that you can play at your wedding. Ready, set, GO!
