Music is a staple of weddings. Yet, besides free-form dancing, it's also an excellent mechanism to inject an extra dose of fun into the event. Playing games at the reception will help boost the energy of your guests and make them a little less self-conscious about hitting the dance floor throughout the rest of the night. If you're ready to throw a celebration to remember, hand this list to your wedding DJ.
3 Must-Try Wedding DJ Games
1. The Shoelywed Game
As the name suggests, the shoelywed game revolves around the newlyweds and shoes. The couple sits on back-to-back chairs on the dance floor, and each person removes both shoes. One shoe is handed to their partner while they hold onto the other. The wedding DJ then begins to ask questions about the couple, and each person answers by raising the shoe of whoever they believe is the right answer. The game is completed fairly quickly and is sure to get a few laughs from both the newlyweds and the crowd.
2. Table Release Trivia
The table release trivia game is designed to test the audience's knowledge of the couple, as well as break the ice at each table. Before dinner is served, the DJ asks trivia questions about the newlyweds. The first table to answer and get it right is released to get food first. The process is repeated until the majority of the tables are in the buffet line or served.
3. Kiss Cam
Kiss cams are popular at sporting events, and while the wedding variation follows the same premise, it adds a few special touches. To play, couples are selected at random to kiss. The newlyweds then have to duplicate the kiss in the exact same manner. The longer the DJ game goes on, the more guests start to have fun with it with hilarious performances.
