Wedding game and beautiful reminder of the wedding: and every week in the first year of marriage. The postcard wedding game is quick to prepare, an eye-catcher at the wedding reception and the bride and groom can enjoy it for the whole year.
The postcard wedding game reminds the bride and groom of the most beautiful day in their lives every week for a whole year after the wedding! Because every week, the newlyweds receive a postcard with wishes, vouchers, invitations, thoughts and greetings. A wedding game where neither the wedding couple nor the guests have to stand in front of everyone at the wedding and can still participate.
If you are close friends with the bride and groom, you can label and send all 52 postcards yourself – it’s time-consuming, but the wedding couple’s joy makes up for the effort. Or you can do as I do and string a string during the wedding ceremony. Attach the 52 postcards to the string with clothes pegs and ask the wedding guests to join in and write on the postcards.
In addition to motif postcards, there are great postcard sets with 52 postcards to draw or paint on, to fill in like a wedding guest book or a guidebook in the form of postcards, voucher cards, original recipe cards with space for favourite recipes and many more. So you kill 2 birds with one stone by using the postcard wedding game as an original guest book or recipe book of all wedding guests.
Before the wedding party, buy 52 stamps, a nice satin ribbon (a clothesline or string will do, of course, but it won’t look as nice), clothes pegs and postcards that match the theme of the wedding and love or the motto of the wedding couple. You can buy them online as a set – it’s possible to buy them all individually, but you’ll need to plan some time for that. There are great postcard sets to paint creatively, fill in with funny tips, love recipes for the marriage, etc.
Theme postcards that match the wedding couple are also a great alternative. For example, if the wedding couple travels a lot, you can use country postcards. If the wedding couple loves to cook, there will be lots of great postcards with recipes on the theme of food, etc.
Stick stamps on all 52 postcards and write the bride and groom’s address on them. Then number all the postcards with calendar week 1-52 in pencil. This way, each wedding guest knows which calendar week of the year to send their postcard.
At the wedding reception, string the satin ribbon along a wall or across the room at the desired time. Use the clothes pegs to attach the postcards to the ribbon, evenly spaced, either so that the sides of the picture are all facing in one direction or alternately if you are stretching the postcards across the room.
Then stand on the stage and ask all the wedding guests to join in the postcard wedding game and take as many postcards as they want. Now the wedding guests can be as creative as they like and label and design the postcards. You invite them to write their thoughts, wise sayings, impressions and wishes about the wedding and for the couple’s marriage on the postcards.
Alternatively, you can start writing a sentence on each postcard, which the wedding guest then completes.
If you want to really surprise the wedding couple with the 52 postcards, then you can of course simply distribute the 52 postcards secretly during the wedding without the wedding couple noticing anything.
If you want to do this, the wedding guests should not write on the postcards at the wedding, because the wedding couple will notice sooner or later. Just hand out the postcards, tell the guests what the postcard wedding game is all about and ask them to label the postcards at home after the wedding.
If you have the time you can also design and print postcards yourself! Especially nice are nostalgic old photos from the life of the wedding couple, e.g. funny baby pictures, children’s pictures, school enrolment, with school friends, camping, legendary party pictures – you can also colour them with sepia in a graphics programme, for example, so that they look old.
In addition to being nice wedding action, the photos are also real eye-catchers and make great photo walls!
