5 original wedding games


5 original wedding games

I am a faithful advocate about weddings to be a special day for the lucky couple. You don’t have to organize them just thinking about the guests, but that doesn’t mean that the wedding has to be bland. I’m in favor of having fun and turning your wedding into a party where everyone participates, has fun and is comfortable. That’s why I would like to help you in planning this party with 5 original wedding games.

Don’t forget the great classics such as the handkerchief, the sack race, the limbo, etc. But I think that with these 5 wedding games that I bring you today, your day will be an original wedding with a rustic touch, which you already know I love. Some are games for the newly married couple, others are for the guests in general, and I have even added one especially thinking about the little ones.

1. Questions and shoes

The first of the wedding games in this post is what I have called “Questions and shoes“. It’s one of my favorites, and I think it can be super fun and make your bohemian wedding an unforgettable party for the funny situations that can occur between the couple. Remember that what I explain here is a proposal, so the best thing is to personalize it to your liking!

To play you’ll need:

  • Two chairs
  • Groom and bride’s shoes
  • A volunteer to read the questions out loud
  • A list of varied questions focused on the main couple (I’ll give you a few examples below)


  • Put the chairs in the center of the room
  • The list must begin with “Who is the one that…” That is who is most likely to do something or who was the first one on it
  • Both the groom and the bride have to have one shoe of theirs in one hand and one shoe of the other in the other

How to play:

  • The happy couple sit in the middle of the room have their backs towards the other’s
  • The volunteer starts reading the questions out loud
  • As the questions are read, the bride and groom raise their arms where they have the shoe of the person that best fits the description

Sample questions:

Who takes longer in the bathroom?

Who falls asleep during a movie more often?

Who gives more concerts in the shower?

Who took the first step?

Who cooks worse?

Who has more patience?

Who is the tardiest?

Who is more orderly?

Who gets angrier?

Who is a better dancer?

Who is more “special” for clothes?

Who said “I love you” before?

Who is more romantic?

Who is more “kitchens”?

In this photo, we can see Ana and Rait playing this game in their bohemian wedding on the beach. You don’t know who they are? You can read their super story in the post I wrote about their destination wedding, which was neither more nor less than in Vietnam! They had a great time, and Ana was gorgeous with her Gala Rustic in champagne lace.


2. Touch and recognize

To another of the wedding games I call it “Touch and recognize”, and it was Ana and Rait, the couple from one of our Real Weddings that I was talking about right now, the ones who showed it to me. Now I explain how it works, it’s very easy and you do not need any extra objects, so you can play anywhere.

To play you’ll need:

  • Volunteers
  • Chairs for all (optional)
  • Something to cover your eyes

How to play:

  • The bride covers her eyes
  • The groom mixes with the volunteers (sitting or standing)
  • The bride has to recognize her new husband among the others only by touching some part of her body. I recommend the legs, but it can also be the arms, the face, etc.
  • Afterwards, the roles are exchanged and you can continue playing another round


Do you see? The guests of Ana and Rait had a great time when Rait tried to guess his wife’s foot.


3. Ring Toss

The Ring Toss is another of the super fun wedding games in which all the guests of the wedding can participate, even the kids! In addition, it will give your rustic wedding a super special handmade touch. In fact, I am preparing a post about handmade weddings with “Do it yourself” elements that you will surely love. Remember to subscribe to not miss anything ♥

To play you’ll need:

  • Bottles
  • Rings
  • A box (optional)

Tip: You can paint the bottles and make the hoops yourself to make it look better with your rustic wedding

How to play:

  • It is the typical aiming game, but this time with bottles and rings, instead of throwing stones in cans, since the bottles and rings do not have to be setting it up all the time
  • I recommend that each person pull three rings, so the rounds will be quick and more dynamic
  • You can assign a specific score to the bottles, even write a number or paint them in other colors, and the one that gets the most points wins


4. Giant Jenga

Of all the wedding games I propose, this is perhaps the most elaborate of all, but it can also be the most fun! It’s about transporting the typical Jenga game on a larger scale. Following the handmade philosophy, you and your partner, or your closest friends and family, can build the game with wooden blocks.

To play you need:

  • Blocks or large pieces to create the Jenga mountain
  • A firm table or stand where you can mount it

How to play:

  • Following the Jenga game, it is a question of going “brick” to “brick” (piece by piece) very gently so that the tower doesn’t fall
  • You have to start in the middle, don’t catch those which are at the top!
  • Loses who makes the tower fall


5. The Spy (for children)

The last of the wedding games for your rustic wedding is one designed especially for children. It’s called “The spy” and it’s about having the children have a list of things to photograph so that they are attentive all day and having fun. In addition, they will also let you see another perspective of your great day ♥

To play you’ll need:

  • A disposable camera or an instant development camera, of your choice
  • A pencil for each child
  • A list of elements or moments to photograph. I leave a downloadable prepared as an example, so you can inspire and create yours or just have to print it

Tip: You can also do it “digital version” and, depending on the age of the participants, have them upload the photo to Instagram, all with the same hashtag

How to play:

  • The little ones (or not so small ones 😉 ) they walk, camera in hand, the whole wedding, during different parts of the day, in search of their goals
  • As they are taking the photos, they go through the list
  • At the end of the day, everyone meets and checks who has managed to capture more moments from the list


Let’s play!

These are my favorite wedding games, I find them super fun activities. Surely they are ideal for your bohemian wedding. If you cheer up and do any of these at your wedding, tell me in the comments! And if you happen to have one that you have done and it is not on the list, you can share it with everyone, I will love reading it!
