You are invited to a wedding and want to contribute to the program with a wedding game? Then the wedding clothespin game is a good candidate for this: simple, yet creative. And the wedding couple has even quite long what of it!
The gorgeous cake, the loving kiss of the bride and groom, the funniest or most touching speech – what people remember from a wedding can be very different. In my experience, what was always one of the most memorable highlights of a wedding program at all the weddings I’ve been to were wedding games.
Good wedding games provide cheer and also often serve as icebreakers among guests who do not yet know each other. But also wedding games for the bride and groom like the famous shoe game or sawing a log together are popular and make for memorable photos in the wedding album.
The wedding clothespin game presented here below involves both the guests and the wedding couple, or benefits them. You also hardly need any material for it and it is quite quick to prepare!
All you need for the clothespin game are clothespins, small writable cards, a pen and of course lots of good ideas!
Or here as
You should number the clothespins. To do this, you can either use wooden clothespins and put a number on them yourself. Or you can attach small numbered labels to them.
There are several ways you can distribute the clothespins to guests:
In either case, you can say something like this about it, “There could be a task attached to each of these clamps that you will have to do for the bride and groom at some point. You can keep the clip yourself and feel free to clip it to your clothes, or you can secretly clip it to someone else.”
To make it not too unfair you can also introduce the rule that someone only has to do a maximum of 3 tasks.
At a later time, when the guests have had time to distribute the clothespins if they wish, you take the floor again and announce the drawing of the tasks. To do this, it is best to prepare in advance as many pieces of paper with the numbers that are also on the clothespins as you have distributed.
Then have the bride and groom take turns drawing a number as many times as you have tasks. Each time, you read the number aloud, wait for the guest to respond, and then announce the task to him/her. All the tasks are special favors that the person has to do for the bride and groom.
Prepare a piece of paper or a small card for each task. You can then give this to the guest for whom this task is intended.
The number of tasks is in principle open and entirely up to you. However, keep in mind that the bride and groom must also find the time to somehow fit the fulfillment of all the tasks into their daily lives. So it should not be too much.
Therefore, a popular number of tasks in the wedding clothespin game is 12, which is one each month in the first wedding year. Besides, it is also the number of 12 mythological tasks of Heracles. Symbolically certainly a good omen.
Depending on who the bride and groom are and what their life situation or plans are at the time of the wedding, not all tasks will suit every couple. Nevertheless, here are 12 tasks for inspiration:
