Long summer days are not far off and what better way to make use of those extra long evenings than pretty wedding lawn games. Lawn games are great for the in-between times during the reception and are a great conversation starter for guests to get to know each other. But what games should you include and how can you incorporate them in to your theme? We answer these questions and more below.
What Games Should You Choose
Unless you’re a lawn game champion most people’s idea of lawn games are corn hole and giant Jenga. Those are great games but there are so many others to choose from such as bocce ball, bowling, croquet, horseshoes, giant tic tac toe, life-size chess and so on. Think of your favorite games to play together and use those at your reception – you’d be surprised what you can make in to a lawn-appropriate game.
Incorporate the Feel and Style of Your Wedding into Your Games
Make sure your lawn games feel like they go with your wedding style. This can be as simple as adding one of your colors to the game or using signs with the same fonts that you use on your invitations.
Limit the Number of Games
You may think that having a lot of options means there’s something for everyone. This not the case. It is best to keep the games to two to three count per one hundred guests. Having less options actually means guests are more likely to play.
