10 Virtual Wedding Games to Spice Up Your Online Reception
Do you need virtual wedding party games to have a successful Zoom party
No, of course not! However, they definitely help keep everyone engaged and entertained. So, definitely consider incorporating at least one of the ideas below into your event.
As mentioned above, we’ve included both games to play without any supplies (or with supplies your guests already have on hand) as well as some games to buy. We also chose gender-neutral games that everyone, including same-sex couples, can enjoy. Let’s take a look!
Everyone loves Wheel of Fortune, right? I mean, the show has been on forever (and Vanna still looks amazing, what is her secret???)! Well, this fun PowerPoint game is inspired by the classic TV game show. It’s completely customizable, so you can make up phrases related to weddings, the couple, and more.
Scattergories was always one of my favorite board games, but you don’t actually need to buy anything to make it work! If your guests have pen and paper, you have everything you need. Before the game, you can make up lists of categories to use during the event. You can also download a Windows version, like the one in the video below.
