You don't have to have any games. These are simply ideas of games we have done in the past. We do highly recommend The Shoe Game.
The Shoe Game
The Bride and Groom remove their shoes stand back to back in the middle of the dance floor. Then tell them to trade one shoe. You just got married, but how well do you really know each other, let’s find out. This is always good for a few laughs and draws the guests in. This game is a house favorite.

The napkin game is best done right after people finish their cake. It is good to instruct the staff before hand to have one clean napkin for the table after dinner/cake. The Napkin Game is sort of like playing hot potato with a napkin. When the music stops the person holding the napkin has to take a selfie of the table. Napkin goes around and the 2nd time the music stops that person has to kiss the person on their left. Napkin goes around again and the 3rd time the music stops that person has to do a striptease. Napkin goes around again and the 4th time the music stops that person becomes the waiter/waitress for the night <ha ha ha>
Anniversary Dance Do you want to recognize all of the married couples at your reception. The Anniversary or Generations dance is a great way to do this. We always like to build the dance floor, not tear it down. We always start with the newlyweds and work our way up. 1-5 years first, 5-10 years next… and so on. Once at 5 years we dismiss the couples by increments of 5 years. When we reach the longest married couple then we recognize the longest married couple by asking them to offer the bride and groom some advice for their marriage. Then, play something like “At Last” by Etta James, or “Could I Have This Dance?” and invite the bride and groom to dance with the longest married couple, about half way through the song we invite everyone else to join in. This is a great way to commemorate all of the married couples.
Car Wash — Rose Royce
This is a fun dance at weddings, especially if you like Disco. The ladies are the car wash. All of the ladies form two lines on the dance floor and face each other, arms out in front. All of the guys form a line and proceed through the line of the ladies. The guys are the cars going through the car wash. This dance is a lot of fun, especially if you like Disco and Funk music. If all the guys dance their way through the car wash, they can go around and start back through the line once again, and so
During the tail end of dinner your DJ Calls out names of a few couples that the bride & groom has provided to the DJ. Then we make the couple kiss and bride & groom has to copy the same kiss. Very cute game!

This is a very high energy game. Everybody gets a balloon attached to a string that is tied to their ankle. The object is to pop other peoples balloon’s while protecting yours. Players must stay within arranged areas. You can spice this up by adding a freeze portion. When the music stops, all must stop.

Teams are made, two lines facing each other for each team. 1st two people put balloons between them where ever the DJ calls, i.e.: hips, shoulders, stomach and they hold the balloon at between that point on their bodies and go to the end of the line where the balloon is passed back to the head of the line and the next couple go.
