The Wedding Shoe Game!

The Wedding Shoe Game

We’ve featured a fair amount of fun ideas to spice up your wedding, from our post on 5 Fun Wedding Ideas, to our post on Wedding Games.

The Wedding Shoe Game is a classic way to add something fun to your reception, and it also gives your guests some insight into your relationship (we love personalised weddings!)

How The Shoe Game Works

The bride and groom are usually set up sitting on chairs, or can be standing depending on how many questions there are, with their backs towards one another. You should try and place yourselves so that the most guests can see you, and can see who is holding up which shoe!

The Bride and Groom take off their shoes and exchange one of them (so each has one of the bride’s shoes and one of the groom’s shoes). And then the designated person (MC, Bridesmaid, Best Man etc) asks a series of questions about the couple. For example: “Who is messier?”, “Who is the better driver?”, “Who is more romantic?”

The couple must raise the shoe that represents them or their partner, often with hilarious results!

Twists on the Shoe Game

You can also get your guests involved in the fun by having them offer up questions. You can either place someone in charge of collecting questions from guests, or have the MC open the floor to questions (just beware of potential inappropriate questions if you’ve got older family members there!)

You can have your guests write down their questions during dinner on provided paper, and you’re sure to get some really outrageous questions and great answers.

You can also get two or three other couples (parents, siblings or best friends) to play the shoe game with the bride and groom to make it more fun & interactive! It’s also funny for the guests to be able to compare between the couples. You can award the couple with the most ‘same’ answers at the end!

Another variation of the shoe game is using this format instead of tossing the bouquet. Get all the ladies at your wedding to come to the front and give them each a paddle with Bride on the one side & Groom on the other. Ask a series of questions with more specific answers.
