Today, couples are looking for different or unique ideas to set their wedding apart from everyone else. Over the past several years I have seen many wedding trends come and go. Everything from ice sculptures, to chocolate fountains, to photo booths.
Well several years ago I saw a video on YouTube featuring a bride & groom playing a fun game at their wedding reception called The Shoe Game. I loved the concept behind The Shoe Game, but thought that it was way too tacky to have the bride & groom take off their shoes and hold them in the air to answer questions. So I set out to find a way that I could improve on The Shoe Game so I could begin to offer it to my wedding clients.
After searching online for many hours, I found what I thought was the perfect solution, Barbie Dolls. Barbie & Ken to be exact. Barbie is outfitted in a beautiful wedding dress and Ken looks handsome in his black tuxedo.
Well for about 5 or 6 years now, I have been playing The Newlywed Game at wedding receptions (at the request of the bride & groom) and I can tell you that the response has been incredible. Guests love it and it’s a nice way to get the evening started off. Below is video of a recent wedding reception where we played The Newlywed Game. If you would like to play this at your wedding reception, be sure to let us know.
