This wedding vow mad libs game is so much fun! It's super easy to organise, cheap, and will provide your bride-to-be with some funny keepsakes from her special day. Learn how to play (plus view some alternative game ideas) by reading the article below - enjoy!
HOW TO PLAY THE WEDDING VOW MAD LIBS GAME
YOU WILL NEED:
Pre-written wedding vows (Google is your best friend for this!), printed laying cards, pens or pencils.
Before the party, find some pre-written wedding vows. Re-type them, but remove all of the adjectives, verbs and nouns (leaving a space for guests to fill in their own words instead). Print off your mad libs playing cards ready for the celebration!
Now, there are two ways to play this game.
The first; split guests into two (or more) teams - with each team appointing one captain. Hand the captains a vow mad libs playing card and explain that they aren't to let anyone else in their team sneak a peek! Team captains then ask their members to, one-by-one, come up with fun, funny and creative nouns, adjectives or verbs. Fill in the words in the appropriate spaces and you will eventually have a completed set of vows. Have one person from each team take part in a mock ceremony whereby the hilarious vows are read to each other in front of their adoring friends!
The second option is playing this vow mad libs game with the entire group... without their knowledge! Rather than showing guests' what they're taking part in, simply ask them to give you the first noun, adjective or verb that comes to mind (depending on the section of the vows you are up to). Fill in their answers as you go. At the end of the celebration, have your bride-to-be read out her wedding vows to the group - prepare for giggles!
EXTRA TIPS FOR PLAYING WEDDING VOW MAD LIBS
Surprise your bride-to-be and her guests with a pop in visit from the groom himself. The couple can then take part in a funny mock wedding where they read these hilarious vows to one another!
VOWS ARE FOR KEEPING
These funny wedding mad libs will make for a beautiful keepsake! Either place in a scrapbook (along with other fun mementos from the day, such as photos, letters from guests, ticket stubs, etc.) and gift to your bride-to-be, or simply hand over to your guest of honour at the end of her celebration. It will be such a fun memory from her bridal shower, kitchen tea or hen party that she can look back on for many years to come!

“There’s a reason social media sites such as Pinterest and Instagram are so popular – and that’s the fact people LOVE to look at beautiful photos. In fact, you’d probably be hard pressed to find a bride who hadn’t set up a board or two with inspiration for her own big day. With this in mind, take the lesson to heart that appearances matter and put in the time and effort to create a beautiful space with real wow factor.
It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to do this. One of our favourite touches is Party Picks, which are small messages attached to toothpicks that you can insert into everything from cupcakes to macarons. They’re exactly the sort of thing you would see in an editorial wedding shoot, and help elevate a sense of style.
Oversized balloons are also on trend right now, as are gorgeous tassles in hues ranging from pastel to metallic. Brides are also loving handmade celebration flags, which are attached to retro stripe and polka dot straws and have messages such as “hooray” and “kitchen tea”. They look especially appearling sitting in a mini milk bottle full of Pimms or punch, again enhancing the idea that little touches can have a big impact.
Something else you can also never go wrong with is bunting, especially if it pays tribute to the woman of the hour. Other great decorative ideas include massive paper flowers in vases, mason jars filled with biscuits and candy, and of course, as many awesome but slightly embarrassing photos of the hen as you can find.”

IT’S NOT ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THE HOST SPENDS...
“The ultimate [celebrations] are not about how much money the host spends... but rather how creative the planner gets. The most memorable events are the ones that make us FEEL deeply!
While it’s wonderful to shower the bride with gifts, the experience is way more important than the amount of things she ultimately takes home.
Consider choosing a theme that has meaning and significance for the bride – a tribute to her childhood or something that celebrates her passions. Anything goes these days so think outside the box and don’t be afraid to try something new. I’ve seen everything from life drawing with a nude model (for the artist bride) to a full on carnival-themed extravaganza complete with flame throwers and elephants!”
