Also known as The Newlywed Game, The Shoe Game, Mr. and Mrs., or His and Hers, this activity allows you to test the bride and groom on just how well they know each other. Before the shower, send the groom a list of questions with two parts: His response and what he thinks his bride will say. At the party, give the bride the same questionnaire and have her, too, answer honestly and give her groom guesses. When she's finished filling it out, read both their responses out loud, checking for accuracy, or alternate playing a video of the groom’s replies between the bride’s answers. You could also use dry-erase boards (have a friend copy the groom’s responses), or give the bride a pink and a blue paddle or a male and female shoe to raise with her response. (Note: With this version, you must be able to answer simply, “him” or “me.”)
