Newlywed Shoe Game
The rules: the happy couple sits in the center of the room, facing back-to-back (no peeking). They exchange shoes so that each of them is holding one of their own shoes and one of their spouse’s shoes. They are then read a series of questions (e.g. “Who is the better cook?” or “Who has better dance moves?”) and must both answer at the same time by raising the appropriate person’s shoe. It's a cute way for your guests to get a peek into your relationship!
