Most real wedding games that we know of are purely based on bringing the family together, dancing on favourite and classic songs, singing or acting out wedding-themed Bollywood films in a game of dumb charades. However, things can get crazy and whacky! Some real wedding games are purely based on completely losing it, bringing in a riot of fun and laughter and of course making sure that the bride and groom get a fair share of blushing embarrassment. Real wedding games are what keeps up the mood of a party and what is a wedding if not fun, right? These real wedding games are fun, upbeat, easy to play and yes totally the only thing you need in life to make your wedding frenzy a long living memory! 

Be it the Haldi ceremony or the Sangeet night, or even post-wedding ceremonies; these crazy but very real wedding games are sure to add that spark of fun to the event. Here are 7 crazy real wedding games for real weddings that are sure to be remembered and bring back joyous memories for years to come:

1. Real Wedding Games - Drinking Games

Who knows how to bring in ‘high’ spirits better than a wedding party? With over-the-top cocktail parties becoming the highlight of wedding functions, it’s only obvious that wedding brigades are now taking drinking games to the next level. Be it a fun game of beer pong along the poolside at a bachelor/bachelorette party or the couple drinking shots while making vows to one another- drinking games are crazy fun.

Drinking games can also be combined with other games, for example, play a song and every time a specific word is repeated, the wedding party must take a shot. You can now drink and know things, because of its a party!

Best occasions to play this game during the time of the wedding festivities:

  • Cocktails
  • Sangeet
  • Reception
  • Bachelorette

2. Guess Who?

This is another real wedding game that fulfils both the purposes of bringing families together and a riot of fun. The bride and groom are made to sit together, and old/embarrassing pictures of family members are displayed on a screen, including their own, and they must guess whose picture it is. This is a great way to know your partner’s family while having fun at it. Make sure you add lots and lots of embarrassing pictures of the bride and groom. However, this real wedding game is best for smaller, family functions as it is easy to manage when it is a smaller gathering trying to look at one screen and guess.

Best occasions to play this game during the time of the wedding festivities:

  • Engagement
  • Sangeet
  • Post Wedding (an apt ice-breaker for the bridal welcome)

3. Cinderella Story

This real wedding game is inspired straight from every girl’s favourite fairytale. The bride and bridesmaids form a heap of their footwear and pile them all together. The groom and groomsmen must match the shoe to the right owner. To make it more interesting, make sure these heaped shoes are different from the ones you’ve been wearing all along. Whoever wins, gets to challenge the loser to a dare. Ah the classic game of truth and dare with the fairytale twist? Find the glass slipper before the clock strikes 12!

4. Girls Gone Wild

There are many crazy real wedding games that are perfect for team bride. While some of these are too insane and should remain within the confines of a bachelorette, there are some that can make their way to the Haldi or Mehndi function. For an insane bachelorette, you can play games like ‘Never Have I Ever’ or ‘Secret Confessions’ and bring out all the secrets in a fun friendly way. For more family-oriented functions, play games like ‘Treasure Hunt’ where the finder gets beautiful wedding-related accessories that give them clues to the final treasure; like a coupon to a day at a spa post the wedding. The treasure hunt is a game that is entertained by all age groups given the diversity that is invited to a wedding. Women and maybe men too, your treats wait at the end of the tricks this time!

Best occasions to play this game during the time of the wedding festivities:

  • Bachelorette Party
  • Mehndi
  • Haldi

5. Bursting Excitement

This is a fun twist to treasure hunt and can be customised in several ways. Every wedding guest is welcomed with a balloon that they must keep safe from being busted. While you keep your balloons safe, you also must burst as many balloons as possible. You can also add to the fun by adding things inside the balloon, like clues to a treasure or a numbered chit that tells how many shots the person whose balloon is busted must drink as a penalty. It doesn't matter if you are 12 years old or 25 or 50, balloons that need to be saved from bursting are a real deal to all! Ge the shields out, some ballons are gonna burst here!

Best occasions to play this game during the time of the wedding festivities:

  • Sundowner or Cocktails
  • Sangeet
  • Reception
