How to Play

Pair the bridesmaid vs. groomsmen or the girls vs. boys. In front of each participant is a plastic cup filled with a beer. The first player from the team drinks the beer as fast as they can from the cup. When they finish the beer, they should flip the cup in a way that it hangs slightly off the edge of the table.

Remember that the next player of the team cannot start drinking until the cup in the air lands down correctly way on the table.

This simple wedding reception game would surely add the much-needed action to your party.

Tip: The game is more appropriate if played after the party because you don’t want your mom and dad to witness your secrets.
