Spring and summer are at the peak of wedding season, so its not a surprise most couples want to incorporate some sort of outdoor activity in their reception! We’ve compiled a few ideas and tips to making the most of your wedding lawn games!
When I think of lawn games, I think of casual backyard BBQ. But that doesn’t mean the same dusty games you pull out for the 4th of July have to be the same games you have at your wedding. Spruce up your choice by adding textures, colors, or fonts to what may once have been a boring corn hole board. If you’re going with a rustic theme, throw some burlap or greenery around your game areas, or make some signs in the same theme as your invitations to label each game!
If you and your fiancé met at playing Jenga at a party, then have giant Jenga as one of your outdoor activities. If your family has an annual corn hole competition, throw that in too! Choose games that have a sense of purpose. Chances are your guests will know the story behind it and already know how to play!
Be selective in choosing your outdoor games. Not everyone will want to play, and you don’t want too much of a selection that they take up too much space. Limit 2-4 for an average size of 150 guests. This will give them enough variety of options of everything else you have planned during your reception without overwhelming the space!
