@regit45:  We’re having an indoor/outdoor reception and we’ll be having corn hole (corn toss, bean bag toss, whatever you wanna call it) outside. But you could easily do it inside if you have enough room. Just an idea to get people off their butts!

I like the idea of having Jenga and Uno!

If folks aren’t into games, you could also leave out some simple art materials (crayons, colored pencils, large sheets of paper) and let people doodle or design messages, which would allow individuals to choose to draw on their own or as a group. 

Who knows, they might leave you something memorable!

@regit45:  My fiance’s family is British and grew up on Cribbage so I think we will be including that so if you have people who know how to play that could be fun! 🙂

I went to my cousin’s wedding last spring where we had a lot of down-time, and she had a table set up with a bunch of things that were supposed to be for kids.  Me and my brothers (ages 18-28) had SO much fun with the Play-Doh!  It was awesome.

 With our friends, we’re totally having  Cards Against  Humanity on certain tables. But a more family friendly version would be Apples to Apples. It’s fun and  the whole table can play!

We are doing Corn Hole and Giant Jenga.



I also found Giant Connect 4 online (I am personally not going to have that , but since you were looking into it, I thought I’d share).

@regit45:  We had 2 sets of cornhole and a bonfire 🙂 VERY popular amongst guests. As far as board games, maybe you could add sock-em-boppers?
