38. Corn Hole
Perfect for an outdoor cocktail hour, the classic sandbag game can be customized for a husband vs. bride theme.
How to play: Angle two large rectangles of plywood several inches off the ground and carve out one hole at the top of each team’s game board. The goal of each round is to sink as many sandbags as possible into your opponent’s target. Paint the corn hole set to match your wedding’s colors and theme!
39. Find The Guest
Provide a questionnaire with interesting facts about guests in the room and send everyone on a socializing scavenger hunt.
How to play: Create new conversations with a find-the-guest game. When guests start their cocktail hour or sit down to dinner, encourage conversation by listing interesting facts about people in the room. Everyone has to mingle to complete their questionnaire faster than their peers.
40. Giant Chess And Checkers
Ranging from large to life-size, consider a DIY approach to giant chess and checkers out on your venue’s lawn.
How to play: For both chess and checkers, DIY your board with a checkered black and white fabric. A fabric board makes for easy transport, outdoor play, and easy cleanup. For a rustic look, cut and paint your checker pieces from wood slices. Get creative with chess pieces as well, like decorated wine bottles or PVC piping.
In conclusion, whether you are hosting an intimate gathering indoors or an outdoor summer wedding, wedding games make for the perfect ice breaker for guests. Plan your wedding game to take place during your cocktail hour so guests are entertained while you’re taking group wedding photos or spending some one on one time with your new spouse.
