Games are a great way to take the pressure off in terms of entertaining everyone, and they provide another outlet for you to be creative and come up with a wedding that's different from what people have seen before. They're also a great way for guests who don't know each other to break the ice. However, this will of course take a little extra planning.

While it may seem odd to play games at a wedding, it’s one of the best ways to keep your guests entertained. Now, we understand that you may not know where to begin when it comes to choosing games for weddings. To help you out, we thought it would be useful to put together a brief article on this subject. If this is something that you’re interested in learning more about, read on as we discuss three fun and interesting garden game ideas for your wedding.

Wedding Lawn Games

There are endless possibilities when it comes to classic garden games. Jenga, Dice, Dominoes, Croquet, Bocce, Connect Four, Chess, Ring Toss, Corn Hole, the list goes on. You want something that won’t be too energetic, since people will be in their wedding clothes. Make the games feel like a part of the overall wedding décor by painting and personalising the pieces. Classic games like the ones we’ve listed above are perfect for a wedding because they’re great fun for all ages. Set up a game zone, and watch your guests have the time of their life.

Wedding Reception Table Games

Some other fun ideas for reception entertainment are games that guests can play at their tables. Table games are a great way to get guests who might not know each other to mingle, or to keep guests occupied as they wait for the bride and groom to make their grand entrance. Some game ideas include trivia, Quiz, Truth or Dare, Treasure Hunt, Wedding Bingo, Mad Libs, etc. Be creative and come up with games that fit your personality!

Wedding Children’s Games

If you're having children at your wedding, think about ways to keep them entertained and involved in the festivities. Set up a game station with board games or video games. Or keep the costs down and the fun level up with some classic party games like pass the parcel or musical chairs. There are also some great kid's party packs on the market that include bubbles, coloring books, and crayons, etc.
