Wedding Reception Games to Entertain Guests
Perhaps dancing isn’t your thing, or you want to have entertainment options for wedding guests who do not want to dance. Games are a fun way to get guests socializing at your reception.
Board/Card Games – For an indoor wedding, board games andcard games are a way for guests to be involved during the reception. You can set up a special game area in the reception hall, or have an attendant place the games in an obvious spot after the meal.
Lawn Games – Take advantage of the space available to you if you are having an outdoor wedding reception. Lawn games will bring out the competitive spirit in guests. Ideas for lawn games are croquet, bocce ball, horse shoes, and a bean bag toss.
Games for Children – Providing an activity for younger wedding guests will give them something to do while the adults are having cocktails and talking. The Offbeat Bride shows a creative activity book created for the children that you can easily make on your computer.
Prizes – While just playing games can bring out the competitive spirit in many people, offering prizes can get people really excited to play games. Here are some ideas for prizes you can give to the winners of the games: Vineyard Collection Shell Wine Stopper Favor, LOVE BEYOND MEASURE Heart Measuring Spoons Gift Boxed Wedding Favors, or the Beach Wedding Favor - Shell and Starfish Frosted Glass Coasters - Set of 4.
Games get the reception energy flowing and guests active. Inject a sense of competition and spirit to your wedding by adding lawn, board or kids games to your big day.
