So you’re arranging a bachelorette party and you want to kick things off with a fun and friendly ice-breaker. Well, we’ve got just the thing, a classic bachelorette party game that’s guaranteed to get guests laughing! Today, we’re sharing our top 50 Newlywed Game questions, along with our manual to playing this beloved bachelorette party game! Just add Champagne and and you’re all set!

How to Play The Newlywed Game

  • Start by choosing a selection of questions from our list below. 15 to 20 should do it! You can also add in some of your own, to make it more personal for the couple in question.
  • Now print off two copies of your questions and give one copy of questions to the groom (or absent partner, if it’s a same-sex couple!) to answer. We find it works best if you film them giving their answers for a multi-media spin on The Newlywed Game!
  • Provide the second copy of questions to the bride at the bachelorette party (along with the all-important Champagne!) and get her to answer them. After every answer that the bride gives, reveal her partner’s answer to see if they match up!

It really is that simple! To raise the stakes, you can also enforce a penalty for incorrect answers, like shots, dares or booby prizes.

Just remember – it’s important that the Newlywed Game questions you choose aren’t too serious. Know your audience, and be mindful when picking the questions or making up your own – you don’t want to embarrass the bride or make her feel uncomfortable, especially if her Mom, or future mother-in-law are attending!

Our Top 50 Newlywed Game Questions

We don’t recommend using all 50 of these questions (a two-hour long Newlywed Game would eat into valuable dancing time!), so just pick your 15 or 20 favourites!

Your wedding invitation is one of the first elements of your wedding your guests will see. Your wedding invitation wording and invitation design clue your guests into details like your wedding’s formality, color scheme, and overall tone. Finding the perfect wording can be a challenge but this guide will help you find the right wedding invitation wording for you..
This guide contains all the information you need to write your wedding invitations as well as formal and informal examples to give you a better idea of how your invitations could look when they’re finished. Use the jump-to’s below to check out the information that’s relevant to you:

Elements To Include In Your Invitation Wording

There is a decent amount of overlap between formal wedding invitations and casual wedding invitations. Regardless of if your wedding is formal or casual, the “who, when, where and why” details of your wedding should be very clear and easy to read. Below find additional elements to include in your invitation.

Host Names

The first line of the invitation is dedicated to the host of the wedding, also known as the party covering the expenses. Traditionally, the bride’s parents paid for the wedding but with changing times, the groom’s parents, bride, and groom, or a combination of all three are contributing. There is no official order or requirement to list the names. It’s all up to personal preference.

Honoring deceased parents in your wedding invitation
To include a deceased parent in your formal wedding invitation, you could try:

Mr. & Mrs. Jon Flores and
Mr. Tom Byrne & the late Mrs. Nancy Byrne
request the honor of your company
at the marriage of their children

Talia Flores
&
Stephen Byrne

Including step parents in your wedding invitation
If you are looking to include step-parents in the invitation, you could try:

Mr. & Mrs. Flores, Mr. & Mrs. Hill,
Mr. & Mrs. Byrne and Mr. & Mrs. Lin
request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of
Talia Flores
&
Stephen Byrne

The Couple’s Names

When listing the names of the couple, the bride’s name typically precedes the groom’s. Most commonly, the bride’s first and middle names are used while the groom’s first and last names are used. This is, of course, all up to personal style. Whether you’re opting for formal or casual invitations will determine how you display your names.

The Details

The details are the most important part of your wedding invitation. Keep them simple and stick to the basics! You’ll need to include the date, time, location, and address. In many formal invitations, couples will spell out the date and time.

  • Date + time
  • Location + address
  • Dress code
  • Any other pertinent information

Post Ceremony Plans

Let your guests know what to expect after the ceremony. It’s a great way to set the tone for your reception with clear expectations. If there’s a cocktail hour or dancing and dinner, it’s good to spell it all out here. You should also include the address if the reception will be held at a separate venue.

Design Elements

When guests open their wedding invitation, the first thing they see is your overall design. Your design should reflect the personal style of your wedding. There are many invitation styles to choose from — ornate, minimalist, rustic, vintage, artistic, whimsical, classic or modern. Consider including some of these additional design elements in your wedding invitation:

  • Monogram + symbol
  • Borders + patterns
  • Engagement photos
  • Sweet phrases
    • Getting hitched
    • We do
    • Love
    • All we need is love
    • We decided on forever
    • Forever and Always
    • To love and to cherish
    • The future Mr. & Mrs. _____
    • At Last
    • Mr. & Mrs.
    • Share in our love

Wedding Invitation Wording Ideas

Sending out your wedding invitations is an exciting step in the wedding planning process! If addressing all of your invites is a daunting process to you, recipient addressing is the answer to your prayers. Don’t forget to include RSVP cards and to take advantage of RSVP functions on your wedding website in case any RSVPs get lost in the mail. Remember to hold on to a couple of invitations — they are perfect for scrapbooking, crafting and including in a shadow box or photo book! After the wedding, make sure to send your attendees thank you cards to show them how much you value their love and support.
