Antakshari is the pyjama of Indian bride game; it is simple, familiar and comfortable. Mostly it is convenient. Popular across the country and a staple of Bollywood family sagas, Antakshari does not require any external paraphernalia. A player sings a few lines of a song and the next player must choose the song beginning from the last letter that the previous player last sang. You might not find the next Indian Idol in your midst but the bride will be left in splits from the bad singing of her new family. The bonding that happens over the out-of-tune singing with wrong lyrics that end in a fit of laughter is the best way to begin warming up to the family.

2. Do you know me?

This game involves quizzing the couple about each other. Pose a question and ask them to scribble the answer on a notepad or placard. Things may get a little too dreamy and lovey-dovey as the game proceeds so make sure to add a comic interlude. This Indian bride game will make the couple fall deeper in love and also remind the bride that she has a supportive and loving partner in her new abode.

3. Bridal Treasure Hunt

When it comes to Indian bride games, treasure hunts are doubly fun because they promise a reward to add the end. Whether the treasure is the hubby or the bridal chambers, a treasure hunt can be moulded into an entertaining Indian bride game easily. Clues about the couple’s quirks and dating history can be used to spice things up and work as an excellent icebreaker for the bride. This game is fun for the friends and bridesmaids and groom's squad who can map out the treasures with your secrets and tell-tales and you have to participate in the game because of the treasure at the end of the hunt is more than exciting!

4. Balloon/Coconut Dance

This Indian bride game will surely set the temperature to soar. Inspired by the coconut tie-breaker from the rom-com Just Go With it, the objective is to make the couple dance with a balloon balanced between them. The balloon is first wedged near their stomach initially and must make its way to the very top without bursting. The couple cannot use their hands to move the balloon. As you can imagine this requires impressive chemistry and physical manoeuvring from the couple and will leave everyone giggling.

5. Wedding Ring Search

The Lightsmiths

A traditional Indian bride game, this one is a staple of wedding scenes on television and movies. You will need a huge container filled with milk, rose petals and haldi. The wedding rings are placed inside the container and the couple must search for them using their hands. You can make it more interesting by adding other metallic objects to confuse the couple. The crowd cheering gets louder when the bride and groom blush if their hands touch each other's and this is everything that the Indian bride games are all about - fun, love and laughter.

6. Raise a Shoe

Through the Barrel

This Indian bride game does not require any props. The couple sits with their backs to each other and is asked a number of questions to which they must answer the “bride” or “groom.” The twist is that the bride raises her shoe if the answer is the groom, and the groom raises his shoe when the answer is the bride. This Indian bride game will certainly lead to hilarity as the quirky secrets of the couples are displayed in front of everyone. Raise your glasses as the couple gets down to raising their shoes and answer the funniest questions that can be permitted in the presence of the family and friends all going bonkers!
