#3 Paper Dance
This is one of the most popular Indian wedding games that is very tricky but indeed exciting. This is a couples game, where each couple is given a large sheet of paper and asked to dance on this together with the music playing. Upon the music stopping, they have to get off the paper, fold it in half and continue dancing on it. They must continue this until the piece of paper is extremely tiny and they can still dance on it. Couples whose feet fall off the paper are disqualified from the game. Include this in your celebration and have tons of fun. Who knows, this game could spark a love story?

Limbo is a game that is not quite seen in India but can be incorporated as a wedding game. It is extremely fun when the going gets tough. All you have to do is get a long stick that is also pretty with sparkles or some sort of design (adds to the aesthetic of the wedding). A number of people can play this game, all they have to do is bend backwards and walk under the stick. This stick should be held by two people. It starts with the height being easily walked under, to an extremely low height which makes it tricky and challenging to your guests. This game will definitely make everyone remember your wedding celebration!

Get a couple of Hula hoops and ask the children to put them around their waste and make the most number of hoops. It makes them try really hard because they all want to be winners. The child who makes the most number of hoops is the winner!
If you have an open ground for your wedding, then this wedding game is interesting. Getting your guests on either side of the rope to play Tug-Of-War will definitely be entertaining.
#20 Spill The Beans
This is a true or false game or a game also known as getting to know the bride and groom. Here, the bride and groom spill some of their quirks, secrets and things they’ve done(or not done) in the past and ask their guests to answer correctly. Once the question is asked, the first person from their guest who raises their hand gets to answer the question. If they are unable to do so, any random guest is picked and asked to answer. Every correct answer gets a prize. This is one of the Indian wedding games that can get the guests to socialize and truly enjoy the celebration!
