Hello lady bees,
I am having a pretty small wedding, only 36 people, maybe 40 tops.
The ages range from 21-75 years, mainly it is just family with some friends.
Everyone basically knows each other so comfortability is not a problem, however….
I’d like to have some ideas for reception games.
I’ve Googled many sites and have come up with some ideas but I still want YOUR fun reception game ideas!
My wedding is going to be outdoors, but as far as I know the reception will be inside with the use of outdoor facilities if we need it. So indoor and outdoor games are appreciated.
I would like to point out that I am not interested in the horse shoe game, that is a little over done for me, but I am open to anything else I promise!
Thank you bees!

Croquet, bocce, corn hole, kanjam. You could also personalize them to match your decor. Good luck! Your wedding sounds wonderful. We are doing outdoor games as well with drink dispensers and buckets of beer and popsicles nearby!

We’re doing corn hole and checkers during our cocktail hour. Not sure whether we’ll have something going during the reception…I’m interested in others ideas too.
You know what’s fun…but maybe not wedding approp…Trivia. Usually you win beer but maybe there’s a way to give a table a prize if they win?? I work with kids and I currently have a limbo stick in my trunk…so…I’ll stop!

Honestly, I am not a fan of games at weddings (I love them in real life). They take people away for socializing, into playing with 1 or two people away from the group.
If you are dead set on it, then I would go with something that can be done in large groups, close to the pack, and that is fast and doesn’t require a lot of concentration.

We’re big trivia fans, so for the kissing game, we did trivia questions =)

I think Jenga could be pretty entertaining… and it’s an easy game to join in on or walk away from.
Edit: I really love playing cornhole, and I’m trying to figure out when we can play. Right now I’m hoping for good weather so we can play at the welcome crab feast and rehearsal bbq, but now I’m thinking maybe I could even whip them out after the ceremony (on the church lawn or something) during the time gap between ceremony and reception.

we’re doing games from the 80’s for our cocktail hour. we’ve picked up all our favourite nostalgic games that are quick to play and easy to join (operation, jenga, connect four, trouble, hungry hungry hippos, battleship etc.) We’ll also have bocce, horseshoes and frisbee cups (although still not sure on this one, we may have to save cups until later in the evening since it’s pretty much a drinking game but we’ll see)
