Other Ideas:

Wedding Shoe Game:

The bride and groom take their shoes off, and give their love one of their shoes. Then they sit in chairs facing away from each other holding one shoe in each hand. The Mc asks questions such as “who is better at cooking? “ “who is better at driving?” the bride and groom raise their shoe to vote. Questions should be set by the bride and groom or bridal party before the event. The MC should be given a copy  (search wedding shoe game on youtube to see examples)

Couples Dance:

All married couples are called to the floor to dance. The DJ asks everyone who has been married a year or less to leave the dancefloor. The DJ continues on until the last couple who has been married the longest are the last ones dancing. The couple is then asked their greatest piece of advice to keep and maintain a long lasting marriage. (Search for couples dance on youtube to see examples)
