Wedding Raffle – Ingenious Ideas for 28 Prizes for the Wedding Game


Hochzeitsspiele und Hochzeitsideen für die Feier


Witty prizes and original ideas make the wedding raffle the highlight of the wedding. What guest does not necessarily want to win the ticket for the mysterious yacht and a one-room apartment?.

Hand on heart, we all love to win. Especially when great prizes lure, from which one has always dreamed: the yacht, the family home or the dream trip. But sure, at the wedding raffle you don’t auction really sinfully expensive dream prizes (unless your name is Gates or Zuckerberg, perhaps). The gag in the wedding tombola is that an eloquent presenter makes the wedding guests taste prizes, which then turn out to be something completely different than thought: so the 1st main prize is actually a handmade ship – but made of paper.

The wedding raffle is particularly suitable for large wedding parties with over 80 guests and is an ideal icebreaker that gets the guests talking to each other. With lots of fun ideas for the prizes, laughter and a good mood are guaranteed.

There are many more wedding games for the bride and groom and wedding guests to discover at Abenteuer Frendschaft! From the popular Wedding Game Heart Leaf to the special Wedding Treasure Hunt.

How Does the Wedding Raffle Work

Ideally, 2 people should run the wedding raffle as a team. Most important is an eloquent moderator who is happy to stand in front of the wedding party and can sell the prizes well.

Win now a dream yacht built with painstaking craftsmanship!

So easy you never came to their free dream trip for 2 people.

But that’s not so difficult, because the ambiguous prizes give enough Steilvorlagen for sayings. The second person distributes the lots to the highest bidder.

There will be 3 grandiose main prizes, and in addition any number of consolation prizes – there are no rivets! The main prizes are a yacht, a family home and a dream trip for 2 people. What is really hidden behind these dream prizes then, is on the list with the prizes further down in this article. 🙂

Either you auction the lots for a small contribution to the wedding fund or simply to the highest bidder – the wedding guests can bid anything they have with them, for example, also spontaneously made vouchers for the bride and groom (such as for a joint visit to the cinema, etc.).

While the moderator advertises the prizes for the wedding raffle, the 2nd person goes around with a piggy bank, into which the buyers may throw their quickly written vouchers or a little money and draw a raffle ticket in return. Alternatively, you can just hand out the raffle tickets to guests who come forward without asking for anything in return.

Also, depending on the size of the wedding party, you’ll need at least 15-25 tickets and the grandiose prizes.
At amazon*, you can simply order colorful lots that are numbered consecutively and, for example, fill them into a cylinder* or into a viewproof bag.

Once all the tickets have found a lucky buyer, it comes to the grand finale: the awards ceremony. The presenter calls out the numbers and the winners come on stage one by one. Everyone now gets the funny prizes and the moderator reveals what is behind them.
