  • Have writing material available for the bride and groom or items like shoes or a wand to indicate an answer.
  • Inform the audience that whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins (make it interesting and put a wager on it like money to be won, a spa treatment, or the loser will be made to perform a dance/song for the winner, etc.).
  • The couple’s close friend can act as a host of the game, or the MC could do the honor of handling the game session in addition to his other duties.
