newlyweds game

September 26th, 2010

You may be wondering, “what’s this newlyweds game all about?” Well, let me explain. Two chairs are set back to back in the middle of the dance floor where the bride and groom will be seated.  Each will have a pink (pink representing the bride) and blue flag (blue representing the groom). A series of questions is asked and they will raise the color flag that they believe is the best answer. Sometimes you’ll see some great hesitation expressions like they’re really not sure, or sometimes the bride will put up her flag first, and then the groom will put his up. It’s hilarious and gets everyone laughing.

As a wedding photographer I’ve watched this game played twice before and knew I wanted to play it at mine. Guests are on the edge of their seats waiting for the flags to rise and crack up real good from the agreements and disagreements between the couple. The problem was I knew most the typical questions that are asked so there’s no surprise element there for me. So, I asked one of my bridesmaids, Anh, to come up with some new questions for us to answer that day.

Here’s the list of questions that were asked of Robert and I.

  1. Who was the first to say “I LOVE YOU?”
  2. Who will be doing the cooking from now on?
  3. Who’s most likely to be running late?
  4. Who spends more time checking them self out in the mirror?
  5. Who spends more money?
  6. Who talks too much?
  7. Who’s the better kisser?
  8. Who’s the one that decides where to eat?
  9. Who is the water waster?
  10. Who’s the first one to make up and apologize after a fight?
  11. Who’s the one that started the fight in the first place?
  12. And finally…who is the better catch?

Our hot mama friend, Helen, was the fabulous, energetic MC for this game.

As explained above, Rob did seem confused on how to answer some questions, but also laughed at them.

We mostly agreed on the answers.

This was my response to the last question asked.

    @rob i liked it a lot too. fun fun game. wish all my couples played it at their reception.

    @tdang if you voted for me we’d have issues bigger than you can imagine.

    @tony this is only true AFTER the wedding. but i think b/c of his high maintenance hair he spends more time in front of the mirror anyways.
