Which moments at your wedding are made to last? With the I spy wedding game you kill two birds with one stone: you provide entertainment and fun at the wedding and at the same time take photos that no wedding photographer can capture. Simply download the free template for the wedding game and set it out at the wedding!
The I spy wedding game is a nice game that gets guests talking to each other and provides fun and entertainment. Anyone can take part, but no one has to – and younger guests in particular have a lot of fun. It’s easy and requires very little preparation time: scroll down to the materials list and download the free I spy wedding game template. It’s a list of 10 motifs for emotional and special moments to capture and tick off as photos. Guests can either do this alone or together – everything you need to know about how to do this is listed below.
Photos – they are memories that remain from the wedding. There are motifs that no wedding photographer, no matter how good or expensive, can capture, but that every wedding couple would like to have in their photo album, guest book or treasure chest full of memories of this special day. Because it is the special situations and moments for which you have to be in the right place at the right time and which arise spontaneously – without the pressure of a bulging list of motifs from the wedding couple breathing down your neck. If you want to get creative and design your own card for your I spy wedding game, you can find more ideas for motifs in this article.
Apart from the I spy wedding game cards, which you can download for free here, all you really need are pens and motivated wedding guests with their smartphones! If you’re having a mobile-free wedding, you can also set out instant or disposable cameras.
Take a camera and look around,
look for pictures waiting to be found!
Shoot away and use this list,
find the moments we may have missed!
Of course, you can also lay out the I spy wedding game cards with pens in a basket on a table and ask all the guests at the microphone to take part in the challenge (alone).
Alternatively, you can put out an instant camera (Polaroid) or a disposable camera. This costs a little more, but you don’t have to worry about not getting all the photos.
If you want to play your own DIY I spy wedding game, you can create your own cards. You will need a list of events and items with boxes for guests to tick. Ideally, there should be 10-20 items to tick off, but if the list is longer, the guests won’t be able to focus as well, and less than 10 events is a bit low.
The cards are especially beautiful if you write them by hand, for example with handlettering – but you can also design them easily on the computer like I did. It’s worth getting them printed at a stationery shop or print shop if your budget allows it.
Kisses, funny moments, wedding classics, tasks – anything that creates memories for eternity is allowed. It is important that you do not list tasks that make you feel uncomfortable, such as “most embarrassing dancer” or “fattest guest”. We’ve put together a list of 20 suggestions for you – for even more ideas, check out our creative best of with another 100 events, items and tasks to tick off.
It is important that someone (in case of doubt, you) asks the guests at the microphone to participate in the I spy wedding game in large numbers, if the wedding game is not an immediate success.
Nowadays, everyone has a super camera in their pocket – built into their smartphone, with which they can take as many pictures as they want until the shot is perfect. Of course, you don’t really want your guests to be holding their mobile phones in their hands all the time at your wedding, but the advantages outweigh the disadvantages: it’s the cheapest way to implement the wedding game and the quality of the pictures is also great. It is important that you think about how you will get the photos afterwards – it is best to download them to your laptop on the spot at the wedding or to have them sent via Dropbox or e-mail afterwards.
The best instant camera choice for this wedding game are Polaroid cameras, as they spit out photos instantly and you don’t have to worry about getting all the photos via upload or email afterwards. However, renting several Polaroid cameras as well as the cost of the pictures is more expensive than going for cheap disposable cameras. Renting a Polaroid camera costs about 15-20 euros and a photo 75 cents. I would still recommend Polaroid cameras if it’s in your budget, because the quality of the pictures will be much better – with disposable cameras, the photographers don’t see the result and most of the pictures might not turn out as great as they would have with the Polaroid camera or the smartphone.
Have fun with the I spy wedding game and being creative! 😉
