Pen down a list of questions about the bride and the groom. The guests can answer as many questions they know. Let there be many winners. May be one at each table who answers the maximum number of questions.

B. Treasured Moments Hunt
This game can engage the guests for two or more days, and it is up to you. Here, you need to create a list of moments you want to be captured. Let it be funny. Give a list of moments to all the wedding guests and ask them to click a snap of the moment for one full day as and when they come across any.
When the guests collect at the tables, call out the moments enlisted and ask them to show the snaps. Undoubtedly, the wedding pictures are going to be funny, and everybody would be able to see the missed moments. Some of the moments you can list are:

C. Childhood Games
Switch towards a blast from the past. Prepare sheets with childhood pictures of the bride, groom, their parents, grandparents, siblings, and other very close members.
Provide each guest with one sheet. They have to rack their grey cells to identify who's who. Surely, such fun new games will initiate further moments of joy, talks and laughter.
2. Group Games
Here, many people can play together, and this leads to improved interaction.
A. Heart game -
For fun new games like these, you need to prepare cut-outs of hearts in two colours. Give one heart to each guest. Now, ask the guests not to say the word ‘NO’ or its synonyms, neither through mouth nor their expressions. If by chance they say no or its synonym, they have to give as many hearts (cut-outs) they have to the person whom they said NO. In the end, whosoever has the maximum number of hearts, is the winner.
B. Whose Guests Are Interesting
Bride or Groom- Prepare an equal number of sticks with the pictures of the bride and groom. Make the guests sit with a stick of either bride or groom, whomsoever they belong to. Ask funny questions. The answerer has to raise the stick to cite the answers. The side which gives the maximum number of raises wins the game. The questions can be like:
- Who yawns when sitting alone?
- Who is a good bathroom singer?
- Who has the highest heels?
These fun new game questions will end you rolling on the floor with laughter.
Get a few cards printed with wedding-related items or related to the couple. As the items are called out, guards have to strike it out in their own cards. One’s finishing the first five rows, columns or diagonal lines are the winners.
D. Pool games

3. Kids Games
Let the kids have their own time. Bouncy acts as a magnet to attract the kids and keep them glued for hours. Their parents can enjoy to their heart's content without worrying about the kids.
B. Couple Colouring Sheets
Playing with colours is the best time pass for kids. To make them aware of the event they are attending, providing them with colouring sheets of brides, grooms or the destination wedding location (some explicit feature of the city) works pretty well. Fun new games as these are easy and understandable for kids.
