And the door games must be the most exciting part of it that every bridesmaids and groomsmen would look forward to it.
Bridesmaids would think tons of difficult tasks just to make the groom prove his love to their sister…
…while the groomsmen try their best just to help their brother to claim his bride.
Hilarious and fun door games can definitely make everyone laugh and create a happy atmosphere…
Or can even help the bridesmaids and the groomsmen get familiar with each others…
And the most important thing is that it can help to reach the goal…
“Make the groom prove his sincerity and love to his future wife.”
However, meaningless games that only aims to embarrass the groom and the groomsmen…
…will only ruin the section or even the whole wedding.

INES WEDDINGS will share with you 15 creative and challenging games that you would definitely enjoy it and have a good time!
1. No Money No Honey
“No Money, No Honey!”
If the groom and the groomsmen wants to get into the house…
Just hand out the “red pocket” to the bridesmaids!
…remember not to ask for too much as the red pocket is just for having an auspicious beginning.
The usual amount are usually HK$888 (the number 8 is the lucky number in Chinese culture) or HK$999 (9 represents ‘eternity’ in Chinese).
2. The Four Flavours of Life
Marriage is a part of life and will go through ups and downs — sweet, sour, bitter and hot/spicy—together.
So, you better let the groom get ready before he stepped into marriage!
Whip up some drinks or food that have each flavours.
(Or you can make it an ice cube, it’s even more exciting!)
The foods can be syrup(sweetness), apple cider vinegar(sourness), Chinese medicine(bitterness) and red chilli(spiciness).
Make sure the groom and the other boys has tasted each of the food…

3. No Pain, No Love
Women always suffer from pain for the men they love…
They wax the legs just to impress him…they give birth to the child for building a family…

But we can let him try suffering from the pain of waxing the legs!
“Good friends share good times but great friends divide pain” as they say…
So… wax the groomsman’s legs too!
And remember to capture the hilarious moment!
TIPS: If you want the test more challenging you can let the boys experience how pregnancy feels like by putting a weight wrap around their tummy too.
4. Dirty Dancing

More patience, less argue, and love will last forever.

It’s not easy to put the feet into the ice-cold water no matter it’s summer or winter…

Normal push-ups is not really challenging for man…
So, make it unusual and difficult!
Here’s how it works:

- Another one do the push-ups on top and get the biscuit.
The one who had the least biscuits have to be punished!
This kind of push-ups not only ask for the boy’s skill, but also their energy and endurance…
If they couldn’t hold it for a little bit longer…
…well, it’ll be even more hilarious to see them kiss their brothers!
