I honestly don’t think you need games at an evening wedding. People love to socialize and between eating, drinking, dancing , toasts, speeches and socializing with the bride  and groom and the other guests, the evening just flies by.

no games please.  The guests will have a good time mingling and dancing.

Have you considered a photo booth?

Sorry OP, I assumed you were talking about adults as you didn’t mention kids.

You can set up a kids table with games, play dough,coloring books, puzzles etc depending on the age of the kids.

You might even want to set up a DVD player so they can watch a movie.

Yes, cornhole sounds totally awesome for the kids and adults! You could also give the kids activity books/crayons that I’ve seen some people post about.

Oh and one thing I thought about while reading over your timeline… Maybe you want to change before your last dance. I have a feeling that if you announce the last dance at 8:30, a bunch of people are going to leave before your send-off. I doubt they would just stand around for 30 minutes. So I’m suggesting you leave the party to change into your get away clothes, do the last dance, and then do the ribbon popper send-off.
