The Shoe Game (for Weddings)
« on: September 15, 2010, 02:26:27 PM »
Set two chairs back to back in the middle of the dance floor.

Ask the bridal party to stand about 10' in front of the chairs... brides maids/maid of honor on one side and groomsmen/best man on the other.

Have the bride sit in the chair facing her bridesmaids...then have the groom remove both of the brides shoes.

Have the groom then sit in the other chair facing his groomsmen and remove both of his shoes as well

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 newlyweds 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... alright 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 get high fives, and the families laughing.

BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU:

   Who made the first move?
   Who's the better cook?
   Who said "I LOVE YOU" first?
   Who's the better driver?
   Who has gotten the most speeding tickets?
   Who spends the most time in front of a mirror?
   Who is in control of the checkbook?
   Who is most likely to eat desert for breakfast?
   Who wears the pants in the family?
   Who is in charge of the remote?
   Who spends the most time getting ready?
   Who will be doing most of the yard work?
   If you haven't already... Who is most likely to pass gas in front of the other first?
   Who's the better kisser?
   Who will be the first to fall asleep tonight?
   Who has the smelliest feet?
   Who steals the cover's more?
   Who popped the question?
   Who says "I love you" the most in one day?
   Who talks more?
   Who's most likely to use up all the hot water?
   Who's most likely to get lost?
   Who's most likely to ask for directions?
   Who's the first one to make up after a fight?
   Who's the one that started the fight in the first place?
   Who's the most likely to wake up grumpy in the morning?
   Who's most likely to be running late?
   Who spends more money?
   Who is more romantic?
   Who is more spontaneous?
   Who has the better fashion sense?
   Who does the packing for vacations?
   Who is the messiest around the house?
   Who was the cutest baby?
   Who will be the first to sleep on the couch?
   AND Finally... Who do you love the most in the whole wide world...

Thank you for taking the time to write this Thomas, I'm going to try this for the first time this weekend.
Is this usually enough questions or do you think I need to prepare more?

Hello Richard:

You do not need more questions that this.  In fact, it is probably double what you will actually need.  Copy/Paste in to a word doc, and re-arrange them in order from your favorites to least favorite.  Then, when you are doing your event and it feels like it is starting to get a little long, bring an end to the game.

Be perceptive to if the game feels like it is going long.  Read body language of your contestants and audience.  Generally I will feel or perceive any challenge going long at some point and then say 'And now for our final last question.....', then gracefully conclude and proceed to your next game/challenge.
