Let the Games Begin: Infusing Fun into Your Wedding Reception
We’re not saying your wedding is going to be boring (no way!), but guests love activities. It’s a fact. Avoid the before and after-dinner slump with fun, festive games for your guests to enjoy. From a simple “How well do you know the couple?” crossword, to an olympic sequence of lawn challenges, there are games suitable for every couple and every type of wedding.
Here’s a round-up of some I do-themed games for the big day:
WHAT’S 14-DOWN?: Got a printer? You’ve got a game! Use a free online crossword generator to create a custom crossword about you, the couple. It looks cute-as-can-be at each place setting and doubles as a natural conversation starter among table mates.
WED-LIBS: Also a DIY print job, WED-LIBS (the wedding take on Mad Libs) is a quirky conversation starter. Place them at each setting, or in a basket tied with coordinating writing utensils and twine like below.
HE SAID, SHE SAID: How well do your guests know you guys? You’re about to find out.
OLD-FASHIONED FUN: Probably not the best idea for a black tie affair, but if a down-home bash is in your future, guests will love getting involved in old-school sack races.
LAWN LOVE: Horseshoes, croquet, giant chess? Nothing gets guests involved quite like a little lawn competition.
