Hochzeitsspiele und Hochzeitsideen für die Feier


What is the most precious thing that remains from the wedding? Memories! A wonderful way to capture memories for eternity is the photo game at the wedding with the most creative, funny and beautiful photo tasks for the guests. How it works, what you should prepare for it to be a great success and of course the 121 most beautiful tasks we have collected for you here.

How many funny pictures with unusual motifs that capture exactly what’s special exist from your wedding? Ok, the answer is predictable – none, because the photographer was booked for professional pictures of the ceremony, the shoot with the bride and groom and an hour of photos of the guests, and that was the end of the time budget. Wait a minute! But there was still the photo booth with the funny props, where funnier and funnier pictures were taken as the hour went by. A photo booth is absolutely great and always worthwhile – the only way to get even more creative and funny souvenir photos for the guests is through the photo game at the wedding. We have let our heads smoke and come up with the funniest photo game tasks for you and collected them. Because they are the absolutely indispensable heart of this wonderful wedding game!

A photo game at the wedding is a real icebreaker and gets the guests talking to each other and mingling. It’s a great addition to the wedding photographer, who it definitely doesn’t replace. Because the photo game at the wedding creates funny, silly and crazy souvenir photos while the wedding photographer creates romantic photos and professional pictures that later hang on the wall with you and your family. Together, this makes for great pictures of the big day that will look great in a photo album or book that is very different from most couples’ wedding photographs and shows the individuality of your wedding and your guests.

How to Play the Wedding Photo Game?

Before the wedding, the wedding couple, best man or maid of honour, family member or close friend prepares cards with wedding photo game tasks and buys a book and organises a photo booth or Polaroid camera for the wedding.

At the beginning of the wedding reception, each wedding guest receives a card or is allowed to draw a lot from a lottery pot with a photo task and the organiser announces what the photo game is all about and asks the guests to actually complete their task on the evening and asks them to swap tasks if they would like to have a different task. Each wedding guest has to complete his or her task during the course of the evening. In addition, there is a photo book in which each guest has the opportunity to write something in accordance with his or her photo task and to make the souvenir photos even more personal. Finally, the organiser writes a dedication in the book and gives it to the wedding couple as a personal, individual memento of the wedding.

This way, the wedding couple has a wonderful, very special memento of the wedding in which every guest has immortalised themselves. At the same time, the guests get closer together and get to know each other better while completing their photo tasks through the wedding photo game – you can see how the game achieves this in the examples of photo tasks in a moment.

What Do You Need for the Wedding Photo Game?

You can make your own cards with photo tasks, but if you are short of time or in a wedding rush, you can of course also buy a wedding photo game card set! You can find tips on how to do this under the photo tasks.

You Need These Materials for the Wedding Photo Game

  • As many cards or tickets with photo tasks as there are wedding guests present
  • At least one instant camera or a photobooth – if you put out a normal camera, you have to glue in all the pictures yourself
  • empty photo album
  • Stick and photo glue corners
  • Pens, stamps, tape to design the photo book
  • If necessary, a transparent lottery pot
  • Table to display the photo book at the wedding

121 Ingenious Photo Tasks for the Wedding Photo Game

Wedding photo game tasks

Who has completed which photo task? A nice piece of information that should definitely be on the card

The better the organiser knows the wedding guests, the more he can cater to them and make the wedding photo game photo tasks suitable and personal. The wedding couple or the witnesses are therefore ideal organisers – in principle, however, anyone can think of photo tasks, it is only important to adapt them to the guests. For example, if many older wedding guests are invited, then only a few photo tasks should be sporty.

It is highly recommended to create photo tasks for the wedding photo game that focus on commonalities. This is a great way to get guests talking to each other and create unforeseeable memories. Commonalities can be studying in the same university, living in the same city, playing an instrument, etc.

If you don’t know most of the wedding guests well, be sure to ask the wedding couple for a guest list beforehand and ask around for some insiders to customise the photo assignments!

Important Tips for the Wedding Photo Game: Camera, Photo Book and the Task Cards

Be creative! With a colourful mix of photo tasks and motifs, the photo game at the wedding will be a complete success.

Which Camera Is the Best for the Photo Game?

A nice, but not entirely inexpensive option is to hire a photobooth. You register this with the wedding couple so that space is reserved for it. The photobooth spits out instant pictures that you can look at digitally and take again until you are satisfied with the result before it is printed out and can be stuck into the photo book straight away.

Alternatively, you can rent a Polaroid camera from a supplier or buy one yourself if you love this kind of photo anyway.

You can also simply set up a photo printer and let the wedding guests take the photos with their own mobile phones. They can then print them out themselves at the wedding using the photo printer and stick them in the photo book. After the wedding, be sure to ask all guests to upload their photos digitally to a platform and make them available to the wedding couple.

I advise against disposable cameras. Most of the time, the results are not that great and you can’t see whether a photo is successful or not. After all, this wedding photo game is all about great results…

What Should I Consider for the Wedding Photo Game Task Cards?

Choose a beautiful design and write on the cards on the computer or by hand. If you have a smaller wedding party, you can handwrite the photo tasks on the cards – it’s quite time-consuming, but looks great. If you have a large group of guests, you can write on the cards by hand or on the computer (depending on how beautiful your handwriting is ;-).

It is important that you do not design the cards with the photo tasks too large – they will be stuck into the photo book with the photos and should not take up too much space. If you design the photo challenge cards yourself, choose a nice design and bear in mind that you will have to write on and design many cards – plan enough time for this.

Photo Book or Photo Box – Which Is Better?

Creating memories of the wedding is one of the most important tasks in wedding planning. Whether you choose a guest book, a photo book, a wedding photo game, a photo booth or a wedding photographer is a matter of taste (and sometimes also depends on your budget). The ideal is a combination – for the wedding photo game it doesn’t matter which combination you choose – be creative and choose what suits the wedding couple and the desired result best! It is important that the photo book is thick enough and that each guest has at least one page in the photo book to be immortalised.

You and the wedding guests have put so much time, creativity and wit into the wedding photo game, it needs to be acknowledged accordingly! Set out a nice photo album on a table with utensils to glue in their wedding photo challenge with the photos and give it the opportunity to be creative with text, different pens, stamps etc. You’ll find lots of tips for a DIY wedding guest book here.

A nice alternative is a photo box! If you are only interested in the photos and want to encourage the wedding guests to put in as much effort as possible, then set up a nice box or chest with a display “Photos for the wedding couple”. You lock it with a key and give it to the wedding couple after the wedding. If you particularly like this idea, then you should definitely take a look at whether a wedding time capsule is not exactly what you are actually looking for.

Does a Selfie Wall Pay Off?

Absolutely: yes! A selfie wall is super easy to implement and makes for more great memory photos with clean backgrounds! A selfie wall is nothing more than setting up a neutral background for the selfies at the wedding location. This can be, for example, a white or black background or a motif that fits particularly well, for example, if it is a theme wedding. This way, there are no guests running around in the background and the photos look more professional!

What Does the Wedding Photo Game Cost?

This photo game is one of the more expensive wedding games, but in my opinion it is worth every euro. It kills two birds with one stone – it’s a nice wedding game that mixes up the guests and provides good entertainment, and at the same time it creates a lasting memory for the wedding couple as a keepsake.

A photo booth is quite expensive – the rental costs 150-250 euros for an evening, depending on the provider. Often the photo booth is a gift for the wedding couple, which you discuss with them beforehand.

Renting a Polaroid camera usually costs 15-20 euros. If you decide to rent a Polaroid camera, you should know that one photo costs about 75 cents and that it is best to tell the wedding guests during the introductory speech that 2-3 photos are available for everyone to take. This way everyone will be considerate and not unknowingly snap 50 photos. Nevertheless, be sure to plan a buffer of pictures – for example, I went out late at night with my Polaroid camera and took the last really memorable pictures :-D.

If you choose a photo printer, you save the rental costs for a Polaroid camera. One picture costs about 30 cents. However, if you don’t have your own printer or know someone who can lend you one, you still have to calculate the cost of buying one.

Then there are the costs for the guest book or photo book and the utensils for designing it. You should calculate about 30-40 euros for this.
