I would like to find out if people actually play the games provided at a wedding ? I was thinking of having games for the guests to play outside while we were taking our photos (during cocktail hour) we are having a rustic farm style wedding , there will be blakts for guests to sit outside during the cocktail hour . I havent been to a wedding with games however i think its a nice idea but think if people dont use it it will be a waste of time

Kura1: I’ve been to weddings with games, in my experience it works best when most of the guests (or at least large groups of guests) know each other OR if your guests are all really outgoing.
When the group is made up of a lot of small groups that aren’t as inclined to mingle sometimes the games don’t work out.
If most of your guests are fans of garden games, I say go for it 😀

Kura1: The PP made a great point!
I also plan on having garden games during our cocktail hour and we are mostly in our mid-to late twenties with many friends who love cornhole and such. A majority of our guests also hang out in large groups and all of them are really outgoing.
I personally would have so much fun with games during a wedding!

We had a game reception instead of dancing and we have a lot of cool pictures of our guests playing. We made sure to have a variety of games. The younger crowd enjoyed the lawn games and the older crowd liked their card favors and the mad libs I made. I also had wedding themed coloring sheets which were a hit with the kids and my friends.

Croquet and bocce ball are really fun to play and look great in photos.
