Registration of premises for redemption

When decorating a room for the purchase of Cinderella, it is necessary to use the beautiful scenery of an old house. Girlfriends can independently create a style and draw them. Candles with beautiful candlesticks, carpet paths are also suitable. If finances allow, the ransom should be carried out in a previously prepared room - on the territory of an old building with chic marble staircases or in an expensively furnished restaurant.

Cinderella-style ransom scenario

The groom drives up to the bride’s house, where she meets a witness who is dressed in a fabulous style. She holds a few boxes. The witness says:

“Finally you came!” Your story is a real fairy tale. Therefore, we have prepared a fabulous ransom for a fairy tale «Cinderella», which starts right now. The first thing to do is to guess in which box is the shoe of the beautiful bride.

Of the three boxes, the future spouse needs to choose the one where the lover's shoe is hidden. For each new attempt, the hero of the day pays a small ransom. When the shoe is found, the witness says:

- Congratulations, the groom! You have what belongs to the beautiful bride. Now, let's get started! Just don’t forget to wear this.

The witness gives the groom a cardboard crown, a mother-in-law or a witness dressed as an evil stepmother comes out of the entrance.

“Who granted this to us at such an early age?” Who are you? Please introduce myself!

Suzhenny should be warned that he plays the role of a prince, so the remarks must be appropriate. The future spouse answers that the prince.

- Prince ... Prince, god! Forgive me, Your Majesty, that I am in such an outfit. There was no time to dress up. What awkwardness, no one told us that you would arrive, we did not wait! Where are you from, where? Are you tired? Maybe a seagull? Or wine - we have good wine! And the cook will cook the baked duck according to the best recipe of the kingdom.

Suzhenny replies that he is looking for a bride.

- The bride ... Yes! We have a lot of them. Now I will only call my daughters! And this shoe in your hands must belong to her? Daughters! Come here, the PRINCE has come to us! Crumbs, come on, get down soon!

While the bridesmaids, dressed as evil sisters, descend, the stepmother says:

- Well, a day is given out - who knew that there would be a wedding? How wonderful! It's time for my daughters to marry ... Oh, finally, you're here, babies! Come come here!

Evil sisters approach the groom, stand behind the mother.

“Girls, I present to you the handsome prince, heir to our kingdom!” It is a great honor to see him here. And these are my wonderful daughters. The eldest is a handywoman, embroiders, sings, plays music! And has another indisputable advantage (hints at the big chest «daughters») And this is the youngest! Well, what a miracle - it dances beautifully, but what a pretty face, the back is even! Well, straighten up! So, prince, which one is your bride?

The future spouse replies that there is no lover. The stepmother says:

- How not? Come on here (takes the shoe from the prince). Come on, girls, show that you fit the prince! He is a lover of small legs.!

Bridesmaids take turns trying to put on a shoe, nothing comes of it.

- Crumbs, what is it? How does it not fit ?! Let me!

The stepmother is angry and tries to put on the shoe herself. Out of breath, he says:

“Well, there is no judgment, no prince!” Take a shoe and leave!

The groom asks if there is another bride here. The stepmother looks at him sternly, answers:

- There is one, but the girl has a lot to do! She still needs to wash the floors, wash clothes, clean dishes. Maybe by the end of the week free.

Here appears another bridesmaid who plays the godmother Cinderella on the ransom.



- Well, what are you, stepmother, so angry! You see, the prince needs a bride. It’s time to marry her long ago, but leave you ungrateful.


“Well, good fairy, and is it a prince, since he needed such a little thing?” Prince, prove that you are real! I do not believe, since the blood nobility of my daughters did not subdue you!

The fairy enters again, turning to the witness:

- Young man, quickly call the merits of the groom so that the stepmother believes!

The witness participates in the bride ransom trial, after the stepmother says:

- Well, good! Let's see how you become talkative with a mouth full of sweets (the stepmother gives sweets to the witness)! Repeat the same.

The witness ridiculously repeats compliments. Stepmother:

- OK OK! Enough already mooing under your breath. There are also rumors throughout the kingdom that our prince performs lyric works beautifully. Check if this is actually so. And let the witness play! Daughters, carry it all.

Bridesmaids endure «musical instruments»- cups, pans. The witness with the groom should play on them and perform a love song. When the participants pass this ransom bride test, the stepmother says:

- I believe that the prince! This voice cannot belong to the commoner. Let's go!

Participants of the ransom with the leaders are at the door of the bride’s apartment, the whole door is hung with balls. Fairy:

- Here we are! Only trouble happened - the evil stepmother hid the key in one of these balloons ... You need to guess which one contains the key that opens the treasured door. If you don’t guess, this greedy will require a ransom, try!

The groom guesses on the first try, immediately goes inside, if not, the stepmother says:

- I see you did not guess! Well, you have to fork out a little before you try again - you see, prince, you decided to arrange a free trip for yourself!


When this test of bride ransom ends, the stepmother says again:

- Eh, the groom, maybe in vain you are looking for our girl? Sure you need that bride? Let's be honest - describe her features, tell me everything correctly - skip ahead, if not - you will marry my daughter! For senior!

Fairy asks the groom for the bride’s signs - height, weight, foot size, rings. If he answers correctly, he goes further, no - he pays the ransom. Stepmother:

“Well, it looks like she is ... However, I'm not sure!” I require re-identification, but it will not be so simple! Here is a blindfold, here is a sheet of whatman paper, here is a felt-tip pen. Draw a portrait of your beloved!

The bridegroom is blindfolded, he passes the ransom test, drawing the bride. When finished, the sisters say:

- Oh, this is our mess!

- Mommy, Mommy, how does it look!

Stepmother Evil Squints:

- Well then, okay! Looks like you know what bride you want! Good. My stepdaughter is waiting for you in that room, but before that, prove that her living space will be normal - lay out the future house on a tray with money!

On the tray the groom spreads the house with money, the stepmother says with satisfaction:

“A good house is a real palace!” Well, congratulations to you. Peace and love. Crumbs, follow me.

The stepmother with the bridesmaids sisters leaves the room, there remains a fairy who says:

- How wonderful that you coped with all the obstacles! There is one last thing left. Bride you're ready?

The bride through the door:

- Ready, but I don’t have a wedding dress!

The fairy smiles, waves her wand and opens the door, the bride and groom meet, the ransom ends.


Competitions for the groom and the witness

Before meeting with the beautiful princess, the bridegroom needs to go through several tests. Competition options for the future spouse for the redemption of the desired bride in the style of Cinderella:

  • Guess the slipper. The witness offers the groom to choose one of three packages - in some lies the wedding shoes of her lover. The competition continues until the hero of the occasion chooses the right option with the shoe of the bride. For each mistake, the future spouse pays a small ransom to the witness.


  • Laudatory odes and a love song. Competition for the witness. The good fairy asks the witness to tell about the merits of the groom. When he copes with the task, the stepmother enters: she hands the witness sweets so that he repeats compliments, but with little difficulty - filling his mouth with chocolate. The funny test ends with a love song that the stepmother asks to sing.
  • The hidden key. To enter the entrance, the fiancée must pass the following ransom test: find in which of the balloons the key to the house (intercom, entrance) where Cinderella lives. The balls on the ropes are handed over to him, the groom bursts them until he finds a suitable one. For each mistake paid in coin.
  • Biography knowledge test. On the floor are carved footprints showing dates associated with the biography of the hero of the occasion. Dates can mean the following - the acquaintance of lovers, the date of birth of the bride, the birthday of the mother of her lover and others. The groom must tell the meaning of each date, but pays for the error.
  • Secret cipher. Before giving the girl in marriage, the fairy must make sure that the groom will take good care of her. From the hat, the bridegroom needs to get a few cards on which the abbreviations are written and decipher them, in accordance with how he is going to care for the bride. For example, DBKK - to give a bouquet every day, PVPM - to go shopping together, DS - to make surprises.
  • Question about the main thing. To make sure that the main heroine of the holiday is the one the bridegroom is looking for, the fairy asks the hero of the occasion to answer questions about the future spouse, he pays for each wrong answer. Examples of questions: «What is the color of the eyes of Cinderella?», «Sweetheart growth?», «Bride's foot size?».
  • Causal relationships. On the steps of the porch there are cut-out sheets of paper with the reasons why the groom chose this girl. Examples of inscriptions: «Friends advised», «Mom said», «Royal decree», «For love». He must get to the one that is the real cause. The groom may ask the witness for help to convey him..
