It's not a game, but we are giving each table a holiday and they will be able to write notes to us, give us marriage advice, date ideas, their favourite tradition for that holiday, and we will read those our first year together on each specific holiday.
My friend had bocce ball, lawn croquet, other assorted sports in between her ceremony and reception. There was lots of green space. Bocce and croquet were hits but not the others (my guess is because it was a hot day and people are dressed up, so don't want to play sports, but bocce and croquet you can walk and do).
Another friend had a photobooth in between. That would've been better if there was actually a spot designated for it.
I don't think we are making anything for ours, I think we will offer things to do in the area on our website for people to find something to do in between ceremony and reception.
We're going to do an activity book for the kids! Some colouring pages, word search, etc.
For guests, one cool idea I saw was a wedding scavenger hunt/iSpy game. Ive also seen the game "guess who" with wedding guest pics. A cool ice breaker.
We will be having an outdoor wedding as well. We have outdoor jenga for sure. I have seen an awesome connect four outdoor board at a resort we stayed at we might be building. I debated doing a life size twister but my parents thought it would get messy. I have seen an outdoor kerplunk game as well. Our wedding is probably going to be around 2-3 pm haven't confirmed time. Cocktails about 5 pm and than dinner at 6. So we will have about 1-2 hours in between but munchies and things. And the outdoor games would be perfect. I have heard good and bad things about plinko if you do one of those for your wedding game for kissing or the social prizes make sure it has plexi glass.
I want to do a bunch of games between the ceremony and the reception! I'm getting married at a summer camp, so there's lots of green space and there's already some games set up (mini golf, frisbee golf), but I'm hoping to set up some others like croquet or giant Jenga or a beanbag toss.
My cousin had giant jenga, bean bag toss (corn hole), these giant diy picture frames hanging from trees for guests to take selfies in. My other cousin had a photo booth, just a backdrop curtain, and a lot of options for photobooth props!
Our wedding was outside and we planned lawn games for the reception. Giant Jenga was a bit hit! We also had washer toss, ladder ball, and croquet. It was so hot that we didn't end up playing as many games as we planned - that heat wave in September in Ontario was crazy!
I think the games would depend on the type of venue you've chosen. If you are outside you could have bean bag toss, lawn darts, bocce, lawn bowling etc. Inside you could have a newlywed quiz, pin the veil on the bride and some ice breakers.
Lol. We're having an intermission to do our wedding photos across the street, like a friend did in theirs. I don't have the free time to do the photos another day so I thought that would be a nice day to do it and than everyone wouldn't be rushing to save extra days. That does sound like serious business though but still fun I bet :3
We didn't have games at our wedding. There just wouldn't have been time. The ceremony was at 3 pm, cocktail hour began at 3:30 with the opening of the bar, dinner at 5:00, speeches at 6:00, special dances for half an hour, cake cutting at 7:00, general dancing right after that. No time for games. This was serious wedding business!! LOL!
