You already know that your wedding day is going to be one of the best days of your life, but what about your guests? Are they going to be bored? While you are busy admiring your new spouse, taking pictures, and making your rounds, you can’t expect your guests to just sit and wait for the fun to begin. Instead, offer a variety of wedding reception games to make your wedding the most talked about one yet. Here are 3 Ways to Make Your Wedding Reception More Fun for Your Guests!
Table Game: I Spy
One option is to have some ready-made games available at the reception tables. “I Spy” is a top choice because it not only entertains your guests, but it also scores you extra pictures for your scrapbook. Create an appealing checklist of the items/situations you want your guests to locate. Instruct them to take a picture with their phone to prove it, and then email it your way. Some examples include a crying mother-of-the-bride, the youngest guest, and a bridesmaid dancing.
Yard Game: Horseshoes
If you are having an outdoor wedding, then you should absolutely take advantage of the grassy area once the ceremony is over. Horseshoes is an obvious choice thanks to the once-common belief that carrying a horseshoe around on your wedding day can bring you good luck. Ring toss, bocce ball, and even oversized checkers will also suffice.
Interactive Game: He Said, She Said
When you really want to create a memorable reception, you need to make your guests laugh. And one of the best ways to do that is with a game called “He Said, She Said.” It’s a simple premise: You and your new spouse sit back to back, each of you holding a tie (to represent the groom) and a bouquet (to represent the bride). The DJ will ask you a variety of questions, and all you have to do is hold up the prop that represents the answer. For example, the DJ might ask, “Which of you is the better driver?” or “Who is smarter?” or “Who said the L word first?” Some answers will be sweet, and some might be slightly embarrassing. But one thing is for sure: Your guests will be cracking up.
