wedding games?

I've seen videos of people dancing around the tables for cash -- kinda like musical chairs. One of the DJs I was considering had fashioned ping pong paddles to say B on one side and G on the other, which was for the bride and groom to use to answer questions. I think they can be fun, but wouldn't want them to fill up time.

Wedding games are great! For my brother's wedding the DJ/MC did a money dance where any of your guests can dance with either the bride or groom for 2 min. or so. Usually a guy would dance with the bride and a girl would dance with the grrom. He announced the money would be used towards their spending money for their honeymoon (i.e. for food, drinks, etc.) To top it off he said he wanted to see who was cheaper men or women. lol...
I think the women ended up donating more money. I think my brother said he got a total of $2,000. Good luck!

I vote: no games! : )
I think for a shower, sure. But I think a wedding is a chic-er affair.
That's actually why I am opting for a DJ but not an MC.

Personally, I hate those kind of games as a guest. They're one of the reasons I don't care for DJs and don't want to have a DJ (even though if my mother gets her way we will have one). I'm not planning to do any sort of games at the wedding itself. We are, however, having a welcome reception the night before the wedding so that out-of-town guests (the majority of our guests) can get to know one another. We might have a few games at that, since it's a more informal setting. Nothing for money, though. Just little ice-breaker games for maybe a few small prizes. I thought about having a "pub quiz" game where the guests divide into teams and have to answer questions about the bride and groom. The team with the most right answers could get some sort of small prize.

We're just doing the money dance. My FH wants to play a quick "newlywed" game. Knowing him, and his personality it doesn't suprise me. It could be funny, but also dumb, so Im affraid to take the risk! haha

I think less is more with "games." A lot of time people don't want to be hassled/ totally involoved- so games just have to be done right, u know?
