Former NBA Player Participates In ‘Shoe Game’ At His Wedding

Brandon Davies, a professional basketball player and his new wife Lenzie are too entertaining playing the newlywed "shoe game" at their wedding reception. This is a highly popular and hilarious way to entertain your wedding guests with an intimate question and answer game. Have you heard of the shoe game or attended a wedding where it was played? Was it as entertaining as it seems? So what are the rules to this shoe game? First of all, the few materials needed makes it so easy to set up. Grab two chairs and set them back to back in the middle of the dance floor. Have a question list prepared and get the newlywed couple to exchange shoes. Each individual should have one of each shoe. To answer, you raise the shoe of either the yourself or your bride or groom to answer each "Who is…?" question. In case individuals prefer not to use their shoes, they may be substituted with flags or something relevant to the wedding theme. Making your own paddles with faces of the bride and groom on them is a very fun and visually stimulating idea! If you find yourself interested in the shoe game, but without a wedding to plan, this game could be introduced to many new circles. It is a great way to get to know one another, and the questions would be adapted from "who is" to something different. You may have your guests write questions as they enter your reception to drop into a bucket, or have a list prepared in advance. Each question should start with "Who?" As in, "Who takes longer showers?" or "Who laughs the loudest at movies?" and so on. The responses from the bride and groom create an entertaining and intimate environment. Guests are entertained and the couple gets to celebrate the inner-workings of their relationship with loved ones, friends and family. You may find hundreds of examples of questions through a little wedding planning online research. The questions can be as straight and honest as you want, but if you have an older or more conservative crowd, a prepared list may be your best bet! The game can last as long as you want, yet it is suggested 10-15 minutes is appropriate. You never know who you may inspire to swap shoes. The game provides a fun narrative to "tying the knot" as well as the ideology of "walking in another's shoes" emphasizing compassion and understanding. As a girl planning a wedding myself, I think this is an outstanding idea! If you are interested in this game, you also may find fun in the idea of wedding table games such as truth or dare or mad libs; creating a contest to share the funniest lines created. How about with an “I spy” wedding game sharing the funniest accounts witnessed with your guests at a later date? This would be a great day to keep the fond memories of your special day fresh in their head. Maybe you share the outcome in your thank you card! Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life. Make it special, make it you. If you love to laugh and share special moments with your friends and family. Definitely explore the plethora of game ideas available for you to play. Play the shoe game with your friends and family before your wedding to test their reactions! Anything goes!

NBA Players Prove They Can Move Off The Court As Well

Brandon Davies entered the NBA in the 2014-2015 season, drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers and then traded to the Brooklyn Nets. After being waived by the Nets he has recently signed with the French professional basketball team Élan Chalon. But when the time came for Brandon to enter the marital games, he brought out something completely different. Joined by some of his former teammates from his college days at Brigham Young University (including Jimmer Fredette who is now playing for the New Orleans Pelicans) Brandon gives his wife Lenzie Quist an epic and hilarious surprise groomsmen dance . Watch him absolutely crush the Carlton! They don’t stop there! His former teammate and BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy peppered the dance floor with his delicate toe-tapping routine! Of course, no group dancing routine would be complete without the classic Whip/Nae Nae dance and the tall boys slayed it. People were whooping and clapping to the beat, letting these fine Cougar athletes do their own thing. Brandon’s career may be waning, but he should have no fear. He could always translate his basketball court moves into dance moves. He looks damn fine doing it! Many couples try and hold onto tradition when it comes to their wedding, but what we find especially adorable is that many other couples decide to waive the classics and start a tradition of their own. Today, it is not at all unusual to see the groom and his groomsmen band together for some kind of an epic dance off for the bride’s eyes, front and center. Gentlemen, we applaud you! But wait! That is not all! These love bird can also dance, and in a pretty amazing way as well! Watch as newlywed couple performs their first dance . The venue is pristine; the tables are set. The dance floor is cleared so that the bride and groom can have their first dance. But wait…they are dancing to… what? Are they really playing the… oh yes they are… The Baby Shark song! Doo, doo, doo! And don’t worry, they know all the right moves too! How precious is this couple who decided to forgo the traditional “first dance” in exchange for their version of the “Baby Shark Song”—which really should bring memories back to everyone of their childhood! So many can relate to the fond memory of riding the bus on the way to school, singing silly songs with your friends, trying to wake up before you get to your incredibly boring dinosaur of a homeroom teacher! That is the beauty of what this couple has done. They have taken a moment out of the most important day in their lives, and they’ve brought everyone around them into the moment with them. Just look at the faces of their guests as they embrace when the song finishes. This is a moment that the couple will of course remember forever, but it is also one that all of their guests will remember. In the world of so much pressure that we all feel every day concerning what we are “supposed” to do, it is truly refreshing to find two people so perfectly suited for one another who are not afraid to be different and put a smile on the faces of everyone around them. What a beautiful couple! We all thank them for giving us two and a half minutes back of our childhood! To the beautiful bride and the handsome groom, we wish you all the best and all the love in the world. Continue to go your own way; make your own path, and shine as brightly as you so please!
