Props: pink glasses or with pink glasses. How is the game going: the first puts on the accessory, and after that he approaches an accidental person and says: “Sorry … How could I not see before, that your eyes shine brighter than the morning sun?”

Then the host takes off his glasses, gives them to the one who made an original compliment.The task of the next participant in the table game is to look at his neighbor “through rose-colored glasses”, as if for the first time seeing something that was not noticed before for some reason. This develops imagination, helps guests get closer, get to know each other better, and, perhaps, will be the beginning of a new romantic story.

  • Apple of discord

Every married couple faces troubles during their life together, and a table game with an “ancient” apple will help them play it safe. The toastmaster must fasten the apple on a thread or elastic band, hang it next to the table of the heroes of the occasion. The game goes like this: the spouses eat a healthy fruit without the help of hands, which can be a real problem – after all, a loose apple is constantly dangling from side to side.

The guests at this time are rooting for the newlyweds, because it depends on their perseverance whether they will quarrel while living together. If at the end of the table game the whole apple is eaten, there will be no doubt that the joint stay of the spouses will always be prosperous. For the competition, it is worth choosing medium-sized apples of not very hard varieties.

  • Strong congratulations

For a table game, the toastmaster, together with the guests, chooses some strong drink – wine or champagne, rarely vodka. Then a person is randomly selected, the host puts a glass in front of him, as well as a bottle of the selected alcohol. The essence of the table game is as follows: the guest pours a little drink, passes it to the next one, he adds more, so it continues in a circle. When the glass is filled to the brim with the last participant, he gets up, says a congratulatory farewell to the spouses and drinks alcohol in one gulp.

After the first or second toast, the toastmaster asks those sitting at the table to look carefully at their neighbor on the right, and then say what the guest likes in him and what not. For example, a contestant says, I love my neighbor's cheek, but I don't like my stomach. When everyone shares their revelations, the facilitator reveals the secret of this drinking game: the participants will have to kiss the place they liked, and then bite the one they didn’t like.

Whoever took a piece for himself – let him now tell something interesting about the life of the young or come up with a wish. If you take more, more stories.”

Tongue Twisters

The competition is most fun when the guests have already drunk a little and it is more difficult for them to pronounce the words. How the game goes: everyone receives a note with their tongue twister, at the command of the leader, slowly reads it so that everyone listens and remembers.
