2. Love Story Mad Libs

Inject some hilarity into the festivities with Love Story Mad Libs. Prepare a series of mad libs about the bride-to-be and her betrothed with blanks for adjectives, nouns and verbs, and have guests fill them out. Read the completed stories out loud for guaranteed giggles.

3. Wedding Pictionary

Put your artistic skills to the test with Wedding Pictionary. Divide guests into teams and have them take turns drawing wedding-themed phrases or objects while their teammates guess within a time limit. 

4. Bridal Trivia

How well do the guests know the spouses-to-be? Find out with a round of Bridal Trivia. Compile a list of questions about the couple's relationship, likes and dislikes. Whoever gets the most answers correct wins a prize—and perhaps gains bragging rights as the ultimate wedding expert.

5. Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Unleash everyone’s inner fashion designer with this admittedly wacky activity. Divide guests into teams and task them with creating a wedding dress using only toilet paper. The bride then gets to choose her favorite design with the winning team earning a prize.

6. Advice Cards

Set up an advice card station at your event for guests to stop at throughout the party. Have them jot down their best marriage advice or well wishes for the happy couple. Not only does this activity provide cherished keepsakes for the bride-to-be, but it also fosters heartfelt connections among guests.

7. Where Were We?

Gather a great assortment of pictures of the soon-to-be spouses and prepare a sweet slideshow to present for your guests. Have everyone guess where the lovebirds were when each photo was taken for a chance to win fun prizes! 

8. Love Song Lyric Match-Up

Create a list of famous love song lyrics and cut them into strips. Mix up the lyrics and place them in a bowl. Then, have guests match the lyrics to the correct song title within a set time limit.

9. Bridal Scattergories

Give guests a category (i.e. wedding dress designers, honeymoon destinations, love songs) and a letter, and challenge them to come up with answers that start with that letter. Whoever writes down the most answers wins!
