Have you heard of the Newlywed Game? This popular activity is a question-and-answer session for couples. It can delve into a variety of topics, from their favorite foods and drinks to their true first impressions of each other. While it's most often played at bridal parties, you can also enjoy it at the couple's engagement party, bachelorette party, or even the wedding reception. VANCARO Jewelry has rounded up a few bridal jewelry games that can add spice to your wedding event.
How to Play the Newlywed Game
There are different ways to play the newlywed game. For example, you may choose to ask the newlyweds all the questions and then let them come up with the answers on the fly. However, this method can be cumbersome and slow because the newlyweds need time to think. With this in mind, here are some details on how to play the newlywed game that is planned.
Step 1: Prep Ahead of Time
Send the couple a list of questions about each other that you want them to answer. Ask them to send you their answers separately and not discuss them with each other! You can keep these answers until the important events are all revealed.
Step 2: Run Through Basics
When playing a game, someone needs to act as the host. This person - usually a member of the wedding party - should begin by introducing the game and explaining how it is played. Start the game by reading out each question on the list and then have the couple guess what their partner said. For example, for the question "Describe your first impression of them in one word," they should each guess what their partner said to them. Next, the fun begins when you compare these guesses to what the couple said about each other.
Step 3: Keep Score
Keeping a score is relatively simple. A point is awarded for each correct answer given by both spouses. A person should be designated to keep score. Whoever has the highest score at the end of the game knows their partner best and wins.
