iSpy Wedding Hunt

iSpy Wedding Hunt is a combination between the typical iSpy game combined with a scavenger hunt that can be played at a wedding. This game is ideal for a wedding since it incorporates large amounts of players. Each of the players photos can be given to the bride and groom at the end, so they have unique photos and angles of their special day.

Guests are provided with a checklist of items and different types of photos to take. They will carry this list around the wedding reception and hunt for the perfect pictures. Participants use their cell phone cameras or provided disposable cameras at a wedding to capture the items on the list.

  2. Pass out a pen, checklist, and disposable camera—if necessary—or take out your cell phone.
  3. Read over the created checklist.

  5. Take pictures of each item to bring to the judges at the end of the game.
  6. Have a small prize for the winners such as an extra party favor.

  • At a smaller wedding, individuals can each have their own cameras and play on their own.
  • The allotted time can be shortened to 20-30 minutes or last the entirety of the reception to include photos from the whole event.
