Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Games

Wedding Rehearsal Dinner Games
Wedding rehearsal dinners are a​ time to​ relax,​ calm down and enjoy a​ quiet evening before the​ big event the​ next day .​
But adding some fun and games into the​ rehearsal dinner isn't such a​ bad idea .​
It's a​ great way to​ help everyone let off some steam,​ calm down and enjoy each other.
If you're planning a​ sit-down formal dinner,​ fun games and activities can still be on​ the​ menu .​
In fact,​ if​ a​ formal dinner is​ part of​ the​ plans,​ having some interesting activities on​ the​ agenda is​ not only a​ good idea,​ but also an​ excellent one .​
There's been a​ lot of​ planning,​ and a​ lot of​ stress and the​ wedding party and close friends and family will welcome the​ opportunity to​ have a​ little fun.
The success or​ failure of​ any games or​ activities largely depends not just on​ the​ planning but your venue .​
If you're having a​ sit-down dinner in​ a​ restaurant,​ try to​ get a​ private room .​
Then a​ myriad of​ fun activities can be planned,​ such as​ pin the​ veil on​ the​ bride,​ in​ which blindfolded guests spin around a​ few times,​ then try to​ pin the​ veil on​ a​ picture of​ the​ bride .​
Silly,​ yes,​ but also fun.
One fun activity sure to​ help everyone blow off some steam is​ charades .​
Whoever is​ up will act out a​ scene from the​ bride or​ groom's life,​ so it​ might be when graduating from college,​ or​ getting a​ huge promotion at​ work .​
The it​ person might choose to​ act out when the​ bride tripped and fell at​ another person's wedding or​ when the​ groom saved a​ dog from getting hit by a​ car .​
This is​ a​ little twist on​ charades that helps people get to​ know the​ bride and groom better,​ and adds intimacy to​ what is​ already an​ intimate event .​
If the​ wedding rehearsal dinner is​ a​ bit less formal and held in​ someone's home,​ there are many more activities that can take place .​
For example,​ how about a​ night of​ playing board games? Who needs formal food? You can have that the​ next day at​ the​ formal wedding .​
At this rehearsal dinner party,​ the​ games are center stage .​
Bring in​ some sandwiches and tell everyone to​ wear their comfortable clothes and settle in​ for a​ night of​ board games .​
You can set up games on​ different tables,​ divide people into groups of​ 4 or​ 5 and have everyone rotate tables at​ designated times .​
You can even instruct game players that when they move to​ another table,​ the​ game stays out the​ way it​ is​ .​
So,​ for example,​ dad might begin playing Monopoly where the​ bride was and he's stuck with only a​ little money in​ the​ bank and no houses on​ Boardwalk.
So,​ let's say the​ bride and groom are big into sports .​
If the​ wedding is​ to​ be held in​ the​ summer and the​ days are long,​ how about a​ game of​ touch football or​ baseball? You can play bride's family against groom's family,​ men against women,​ or​ for a​ twist,​ the​ bride plays with the​ groom's family and the​ groom with the​ bride's family .​
Any combination works .​
The idea here is​ to​ have some fun,​ relax and enjoy each other's company.
Other outdoor activities can include anything that is​ physical and might help people blow off steam .​
Has the​ bride been more a​ bridezilla than anything? How about a​ game of​ tag where she's it? Or you can create two bridesmaid's dress-up trunks .​
Go to​ a​ thrift store,​ fill the​ trunks with old prom dresses and large-size shoes,​ and costume jewelry .​
Divide the​ guests into two different teams and have someone sit with a​ timer .​
The team who dresses one of​ the​ men (ideally,​ the​ groom and best man or​ perhaps the​ two dads) first wins .​
Be sure to​ have a​ camera at​ the​ rehearsal dinner/event,​ because this is​ one activity you'll want to​ have pictures of!
