An improved version of musical chairs

Musical chairs is a classic game but with some variations, it's one of childhood game you may still love as an adult.
How to play
: As a classic musical chairs game, arrange chairs in circle at the centre of the reception hall. The number of chairs is one less than the number of participants. A non-playing individual or the toastmaster ask participants to stand up and fetch for an object in the room (a spoon, a neck tie, a mobile phone for example) while the music is playing. The player who comes back  last is out and have a forfeit for the wedding couple (example: first dismissed has to invite them for dinner within the follow 3 months, the second have to take care of their cat while they are on holiday...). One chair is removed at the end of each round and so on till there is only one player left in the game.

Mummy rap game

This game is very simple. Select 10 to 12 people and divide them into pairs. One person in each team will have to wrap his partner standing still with rolls of toilet paper. The first one to wrap up their partner completely with no body parts showing wins!

The broom dance

This game is very embarrassing for the looser but very funny for other people. It's really simple, all you will need is a broom and a good DJ. Couples are on the dance floor and one extra man dance with the broom. When the music stops, couples have to change dancing partners quickly, the man who stays without a partner has to dance with the broom.
