10 Famous Indian Wedding Games for Entertainment
1. Bollywood Dance-Off
A Bollywood dance-off is a top favorite Indian wedding game for guests, perfect for sangeet and mehendi celebrations. It brings the vibrant spirit of Bollywood to the dance floor.
Here’s how it works: Divide the guests into a bride and groom squad and prepare for a toe-tapping, hip-shaking showdown. The DJ takes the stage, spinning the hottest Bollywood tracks, and the teams must unleash their inner dance divas and dudes. But it’s not just about busting out killer moves and iconic pelvic thrusts (thumka), this game is all about channeling the true essence of Bollywood. You can make it more entertaining by making the bride and groom judge and score the opposite team.
2. Who is most likely to? Wedding Edition
This is one of our most entertaining and cute Indian wedding games for the bride and groom. As they both find themselves back-to-back, clutching each other’s shoes with mischievous grins, a series of uproarious questions and statements related to their relationship is about to be unleashed!
- Who is most likely to forget important dates, like anniversaries or birthdays?
- Who is most likely to binge-watch an entire TV series in one weekend?
- Who is most likely to get lost while driving?
- Who is most likely to fall asleep during a movie?
- Who is most likely to spend the most time getting ready?
- Who is most likely to be the better cook?
The list can go on and on. Prepare for some “spilling the beans” moments that will have the crowd gasping, guffawing, and cheering for more.
3. Joota Chupai
Well, everyone is familiar with this age-old game. This traditional Indian wedding game holds a dear place in the hearts of families and actually brings together people from different generations and backgrounds. It also exposes the mischievous side of the bride’s sisters and friends. They steal the groom’s shoes during the ceremony, and the groom must negotiate to get them back. It’s a playful battle of wit and humor!
You can add more competitive twists to this Indian wedding shoe game by adding a time limit or fun obstacles. If the groom’s team fails to find them within the given time, they have to perform a fun or embarrassing task, like singing a song or dancing, as a penalty. This adds a sense of urgency and excitement to the game.
4. Which One is Your Wife?
A fun test for the husband-to-be, this Indian wedding game is loved by everyone. With a long piece of fabric or a saree containing multiple hand-sized holes, the groom must identify his wifey’s hands among the other women standing on the opposite side. It’s a hilarious challenge that adds light entertainment to the festivities.
5. Toss the Bouquet
A game that adds a twist to the Western bouquet toss. Instead of the bride tossing the bouquet to the bridesmaids, she throws it to the single men, and whoever catches it is believed to be the next one to get married. It’s such a fun wedding game option for guests, especially the groomsmen.
Before the bouquet toss, have the couple privately write down their prediction of who they think will catch the bouquet. After the toss, compare their predictions to the actual outcome and see how accurate they were.
6. Melody Mayhem
Let the bride squad and groom party battle it out in this musical game. This game combines the thrill of karaoke and Guess the Song!
The DJ plays the initial tunes of famous songs, and the teams have to guess the song title by shouting out the answer. Whichever team correctly guesses the answer can sing it out on the karaoke station. Guests can grab the microphone and belt out their favorite tunes. You can add a fun twist by making the losing party bust out some moves to the song on the dance floor.
Soulful serenades and energetic dance numbers? What a fantastic way for an Indian wedding game to let the guests feel involved.
7. Find the Ring
Another one of our beloved and traditional Indian wedding games. It is usually played post-wedding. A bowl filled with milk, water, and fancy stuff awaits. The bride and groom dive in, one hand each, hunting for the hidden ring. Whoever finds it four times wins and gets a lucky edge in their marriage journey. Fun, anticipation, and good vibes all around!
8. Rapid-fire Couples Trivia
How about a rapid-fire round as an idea for an Indian wedding couple game? This can be an engaging way to test the bride and groom’s compatibility and bond.
In this trivia game, they are put to the test of their knowledge of each other. The host fires off a series of quick questions about their relationship, and the couple has to answer as many as they can in a limited time. It’s a race against the clock to see how well they truly know each other! Fun, right?
9. Marriage Advice for Couples
A heartwarming wedding game for guests that engages them in providing useful and funny advice to the newlyweds. Guests can write their pieces of advice on colorful paper chits and put them in jars, creating a cherished keepsake for the couple. The top 5 with the funniest advice compete for the “Master Advice Giver” title. Laughter and love fill the room as wisdom is shared.
10. The Groom’s Quest: Henna Name Hunt
