This year has been challenging for everyone, including the brides who have to plan their weddings. Imagine having to work with reduced maximum capacities, guests who have to wear masks, and the pressures of a socially-distant wedding.
You’re in luck if you’re one of those hands-on brides thinking of awesome activities that you and your guests will enjoy. You’ll learn about a fun game called the wedding shoe game.
The game is easy to set up and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Read on to learn about how to set it up, how to play it, and eighty fun wedding shoe game questions you can use on the big day

Have you heard of the wedding shoe game? If you haven’t yet—it’s a fun reception game that tests how well the bride and groom know each other through a variety of questions without seeing each other’s answers.
It’s a great first game to play after the meals and the toasts or as a program insert for some downtime. Check with your event coordinator or DJ to see when it’s best to play the game.
How to Play
The wedding shoe game is easy to set up and play. You’ll only need a little space that everyone can see. Have your bridal party clear the area and set the game up when it’s time to play.
Step 1: Set Up
You’ll need two back-to-back chairs in the designated area for this game.
You and the groom should sit on the chairs and shouldn’t be able to see each other.
You should then take off your shoes and swap one for one of the groom’s shoes.
You should be holding one of your shoes in one hand and one of your partner’s shoes in the other before the game starts. Similarly, he should also have one of his and one of your shoes.
Step 2: The Host
Choose a fun host for this game: one of your life-of-the-party friends or relatives who can command a crowd would be the best option.
The host will ask the bride and groom a series of questions.
Often times your host will be your DJ or Master of Ceremonies.
Note: All Pro Sound & Light Show DJs are trained to host this game.
Step 3: The Questions
The questions are a crucial part of the game. They should be interesting enough to gain reactions.
The host will ask about 20–30 questions about the couple.
The question could be as trivial as, “Who wakes up earlier?” or as naughty as “Who likes role-playing more?”
You can start with easy questions and add more personal, funny, or naughty ones, depending on your preferences.
Step 4: Raise The Shoes
You and the groom should use your shoes instead of shouting the answers to the questions.
Raise your shoe if you think the question describes you more, and raise your partner’s shoe if the question fits him better. He should do the same.
Check how willing your husband is to play it before adding this to your program.
Discuss the type of questions you’re both ready to answer in front of your family and friends, who’ll most likely be filming the whole time.
Ensure the host makes short pauses between the questions to give you and your guests time to react (or object!) to the answers.
The game only needs those four steps, but if you and your husband are a daring couple, go ahead and allow some time for an open mic for five questions from your guests.
Your family and friends will have a hoot.
