Weddings – the Shoe Game

The Shoe Game_ONDAGO DJ Entertainment

This fun event is also known as the newlywed game. It’s a game that tests the couple’s knowledge about one another. We first invite them to have a seat in either of the two chairs set on the dance floor. These two chairs have their seat backs to one another. With the assistance of their maid of honor and best man, we start off with their shoes to be taken off. The bride and groom will each have one bride shoe in one hand and one groom shoe in the other. Instead of shoes, the DJ can also provide our wedding rubber ducks specifically assembled for this game.

The game consists of about 20-30 ‘closed ended’ questions about their roles in their relationship. Example questions may like, who said the words ‘I Love You’, first?”, “Who is the better cook?”, “Who is the better driver?” The couple may answer with either “the bride” or “the groom” by raising the corresponding shoe or rubber ducky that signifies the bride or groom. Our goal is to ask somewhat challenging questions to see if we can stump the newlyweds or just to shed light on their personal individuality.

If you received the link to this web page, you have been chosen to help create and submit ‘closed ended’ questions for an upcoming wedding of one of your friends or family members. These questions are kept a secret from the couple and are only revealed at the wedding reception. We once had a bride that didn’t know how to ride a bicycle, so someone had submitted “Which one of you does not know how to ride a bicycle?”. Many of the guests were surprised to learn things about the couple. There may be things that that bride’s family may not know about the groom and vice versa. The game is lots of fun as we hope these two answer all the questions correctly. We aim to have a minimum of 20 questions which can make the overall duration of this game a short 5 minutes. In the end, family and friends get a kick in getting know more about them and usually respond with bursts of laughter.
