1950s Wedding Grand Entrance and Exits


How you and your hubby will do your entrance or exit on your wedding can do a lot to stress your chosen theme.

One of the traditional entrance/exit for a 1950s wedding is of course via a 1950s car, one in good condition that is. Renting one is the typical way to go and that should give you lots of choices on what car to arrive in. Or better yet, just borrow your friend’s 1950s ride, if you’re lucky enough to have one, and save some money in the process.

You can also arrange your grand entrance/exit  to be in tune with some 1950s hit or any Elvis Presley music, since he’s one of the more noteworthy elements of that time. Better yet, do the twist with your hubby as soon as you arrive to showcase your talent for said popular 1950s dance. And to make things more authentic, rent a jukebox that will play all your wedding music, including this one, which should make your entrance/exit way grander.



1950s Wedding Theme Games


We think that games which can bring other couples together, one that can help your guests meet new friends, or any activities that has something to do with you and your groom, are perfect candidates for your wedding games. Here are some of our game ideas for this theme:

1950s Stop Dance

We will leave it to you which 1950s dance to single out – Twist, Jitterbug, Cha-cha and so on, but whether you choose one or the other, this game should give your single guests great fun in reminiscing the 50s.

This game is all about dancing to your chosen 1950s music while the music is playing, stopping any movement while the music is out and dancing again once the music resumes.

The game will play out until you have your best couple in stopping and dancing.

Do The Hoop

Find out who’s the best group in doing the hula hoop! We think this is a great opportunity to pit your male and female guests against each other, but if you prefer another type of grouping, that should also be fine.

Feel free to modify the game mechanics a bit, but the idea here is to single out the best group in doing the above challenge. The best group here can mean the group with the longest successful hula hoop time (just add everybody’s time and compare the total with that of the other group) or the group with the most number of members who successfully did the hula within a certain amount of time. Whether you go one way or the other, we bet this will be a great addition to your wedding activities.

Name That Tune

To make this game perfect for a 1950s wedding, choosing your favorites among the 1950s hits should do the trick. Another approach is to just single out 1950s love songs,  whether they’re your favorites or not. Having a jukebox play these songs will definitely add authenticity and should be considered properly.

The guest table with the most number of correctly named tune definitely deserves some cool prizes.

Slang Bingo

Bingo is one of the games popularly played on weddings, but since this is for a 1950s wedding theme, your bingo words should be composed of popular 1950s slangs. This means that the numbers should be replaced by the different slangs and the first guest who can do a diagonal cross out will be the winner. Of course, you can make it a wee bit more challenging by requiring them to cross out words such that all crossed out words will make an X on their bingo cards. Either way, this will be a fun game and a fitting addition to any 1950s wedding.

No idea where to start? We found this great website that should give you some slangs to start with.
