Hi all 🙂 My fiance and I are having an afternoon wedding reception, since our destination-wedding will be located in a popular beach spot and our wedding is small and intimate (about 65 guests). While we will be having a live band, I can’t imagine that at 3PM in the afternoon people will be really getting down and partying… so, what do you think of the idea of having a “game table”? It would feature optinal, little games involving trivia, etc (I haven’t quite figured that out!) I read about the idea in a magazine, and they suggested offering prizes for the winners- like gift certificates for a restaurant, etc. My question is: is this tacky or completely lame? Please, don’t hold back!

I went to a wedding that had trivia before dinner was served and the dance floor opened. It was an absolute blast. The prize was a gift certificate to the country club restaurant the reception was held at, but you could always do a more general gift card for out of towners.

I love the idea – but I think you should give your guests the option of playing it and not pigeon hole them into gaming. I love trivia but my Fiance absolutely abhors it, so not everyone may be into the idea. We are actually setting up a cornhole game at our wedding so our 5 younger guests and those younger at heart have something fun to do while everyone is drinking and dancing.

I love the idea of games. 🙂 and I agree with CrystalBlackheart…have the games be optional for those who enjoy it. Though I would love having games availiable, and if there were prizes, even better!

We are having family games at our kid friendly wedding so I think it is a GREAT IDEA!

we’re doing an afternoon wedding too. ours is outdoors in a garden so we’re doing lawn games like croquet and boccee balls. I think the game table is a good idea. Why have just one table though? Do a bunch of them! You can have different games at each table. that way, guests aren’t all trying to get to the entertainment at the same time!
