We had our tasting last week and the MC of the event played a bunch of games with the bride’s and groom’s. From raffle’s to Name that Tune, to a Scattergories type of game.
My husband to be LOVED this-I on the other hand thought it was kind of corny and awkward. Now he wants to have a few games as part of the reception. Not the traditional bouquet toss/garter thing(we are an older bride and groom) but he wants a few games with prizes. We are having a DJ so there will be dancing and we will also have a candy buffet….now I guess we’ll add a couple of little games to the mix-sigh.
Are you playing any games at YOUR reception? Have you been to any weddings where they played wedding games?

We have a number of family and friends who aren’t big on dancing, and we love games anyway, so we’re thinking of having a table with board games and card games available.

I went to a wedding a few weeks ago where they had travel sized games on the tables, which was a lot less awkward than having a giant board game in the middle of the table. There were several of the older people who weren’t keen on dancing who played them and I think it was actually a kind of cool idea. I think they had travel Scrabble, Sorry, Yahtzee, and some decks of Uno cards. Just make sure they don’t take up too much room on the table if you go this route.
I think you could actually make the prizes thing kind of cute. You could give away little stuff like a mix CD with your favorite songs, a case of your favorite soda, or other things that the two of you have in common. Just don’t overdo it and give away stuff you can’t afford, like gift cards and movie passes. That would get a little over the top haha!

I’m not even having games at my shower because I just don’t like them. I’m not sure if a wedding is the place for games personally but I think you have to read your guest list and determine what the guests will like.

I read in a magazine something about this. They suggested limbo and hula hoops on the dance floor. I thought it was a cute idea but my fiance wasn’t too keen on it so we’re passing.
