i thought these games were a really cute idea for those of you who wanted to incorporate the bouquet and garter yet don’t want to pressure people to get up on the floor.
Counting For Flowers: Rather than tossing your bouquet to the bridesmaids, set up a jar of marbles in colors that match your wedding reception decor. Make an announcement during speech time that each unmarried female attendee must guess how many marbles are in the jar. The guests should write down their answers on their name placement cards. Near the end of the evening, enlist in the help of your maid of honor to collect the answers and determine the winner. You can then go and personally present her with the bouquet.
Garter Relay Race you can make a relay race out of it. The men have to line up. One man sits in a chair with the garter on his leg. The first man in line runs up to him and removes the garter, puts it on himself, and then he sits in the chair. Then the second man in line runs up, removes the garter, puts it on himself, and sits in the chair. Whoever has the garter when the timer goes off gets to keep it.
