Wedding Reception Games - Wedding Couple Trivia

Find out which guests know you and your new husband best.

Think a game is only appropriate for the shower? Think again. A wedding reception game is a great way to pass the time while your photographs are taken, between music sets or while your guests are seated and waiting for the meal to be served. Wedding couple trivia is the perfect game to make your guests feel more in touch with you as a couple, and even learn a little about you two.

To play wedding couple trivia, have questions written down ahead of time on cards, with the answers kept separately and used to score the responses later. Have your DJ, master of ceremonies, or one of your parents stand at the microphone and select a guest to answer the first question. If the guest answers correctly, he or she then steps up to the microphone to call on the next guest, and so on. The questions should pertain to you each individually, or the both of you as a couple. The questions can be funny, serious or even a little naughty, but keep in mind the ages and tolerance levels of all your guests when deciding what's appropriate.

Prize Ideas

Gift cards are reliable prize ideas,no matter who wins. Choose a gift card that could be appreciated by every guest: iTunes, Starbucks, Target, Best Buy, or chain restaurants like Chili's are all safe bets. Food baskets are also great to win, though food allergies can pose a problem. Home accessories like candle holders or picture frames are useful and appreciated. Items personalized with your names and wedding date (like personalized wine bottles, shot glasses or picture frames) are great keepsakes for guests.
