Have Some Light Hearted Fun at Your Wedding and Play the Shoe Game
This is a great ice breaker, and gets everyone involved.
The best time to play this game is either during the afternoon of the Wedding Just Before the Wedding Breakfast or Just after the Speeches, Or in the evening between the lull of the opening, cutting of the cake and before the buffet.
Please note, I suggest you ALWAYS have your first dance after the buffet, Reason being it gets everyone up as they will be stood around you and makes it easier for a DJ to get everyone dancing and keep everyone dancing. The hotel will tell you to do it before the buffet because it works for them. Have the first dance work for you and the entertainment to get your night off to a winning start.
Set two chairs back to back in the middle of the dance floor.
Have the bride sit in one of the the chairs, then have the groom remove both of the brides shoes.
Have the groom then sit in the other chair and ask the best man to do one of his core duties to remove both of the grooms shoes.
Trade one shoe each so both the bride and groom have one of each of their shoes.
Now you will announce “This game is to show how much the new Mr./Mrs. John and Jane Doe really know about each other… I will ask you a question and you raise the shoe that you think best fits the answer to the question… all right, here’s a practice question…”Right now, who has the most cash on them?”
Sometimes you’ll see some great hesitation faces like their really not sure, or even better when you ask a question like… “Who wears the pants in the family”… Sometimes the bride will put up her shoe, and the groom will put up his. It’s hilarious. You’ll find the whole room takes and interest and the families and friends laughing out loud.
BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU: Questions to Ask, We can use some not all and it just depends on the situation and attention spans of the audience.
