Bank employees:

- The most precious treasure you have chosen, but getting it is not so easy, you will have to go through several serious levels of security. First of all, it’s worth proving that the treasure, that is, the bride, belongs to you. Let's start with a simple check: name the account opening date.


- And what kind of date is this?


- To get a hint, you need to pay to the cashier!

A girl with a capacity for money and there is a cash register. Beloved pays a hint, receives a receipt, gives it to the bank administration.


Bank Administrators:

- The date of opening an account is the day you met, when cupid connected your hearts!

Groom calls dating date.

Girlfriends are checking with a book, check that the specified account is open in the name (the name of the future spouse is indicated), and they say:

- Show me the document to see if you are sure?

After checking the data, girlfriends return a passport.

To access the cell where the bride is stored, you need to find the key hidden in the safe, locked with a combination lock. To get the code, you need to answer questions.

The groom receives a pen, paper for writing code.

List of questions, the answers to which will be part of the code:

  • The beginning of the code is the date when the groom first saw the bride.
  • Next are the letters. To get them, you need to remember the first joint trip with your lover, the first letters of the place where you went and will be part of the code. (If the groom cannot remember - let him buy a hint).
  • The height of the bride is the next figures included in the code.
  • The following numbers are the ring size of your girlfriend.
  • To get a continuation of the code - write the size of the bride’s shoe.
  • Question for filling - remember the date of filing the application with the registry office.
  • The last letter that completes the code is the first letter of the color of the dress (dress) that was on the bride at your first meeting!

The code is made - you can move on.

Girlfriends and the groom rise at the entrance one span to the windowsill, where keys covered with paper are laid out so that the groom does not immediately determine which key to the bride’s apartment is. Codes are indicated on leaflets, but only one of them is correct, the necessary key is hidden under it.


- Before you are safes with keys in order to find the necessary key - check the codes with the one you wrote on the previous test.


The groom checks the code, checking with the rest. If he did not find the identical code, then he answered incorrectly to some question and his code is incorrect. Questions are asked again if he is not sure of something - he can go to the cashier to buy a hint. When the code is written correctly, he will receive the key to the cell where his precious bride is stored.

The groom opens the door and receives his treasure - the bride, gives her a bouquet and becomes the richest, since he received a great jewel.
