We have a bunch of board games and stuff like that for our centerpieces, so that’s what people who don’t want to dance will have to do.  We have everything from Madgab to Taboo to RummyCube!

I’m planning cornhole, badmiton, bocce, ladder ball, and croquet outside. I’m also hoping to have some games under the tent (this is also the rain plan) like Pit, Apples to Apples, Pictionary, Catch Phrase, maybe even Rock Band. There will also be beer pong and flip cup later in the night.

I have no idea. I really never gave much thought nor experienced games at any of the receptions I’ve been to. The only “games” there were involved dancing (the dreaded chicken dance and eclectric slide), the garter and bouquet tossing (not games, though), and…the tinking of wine glasses to get the groom to gallop to whereever his bride is so he can kiss her…again, not a game.

I don’t know that we’ll have games. I’m curious to see what people sa they’ll be having.

@BetterSherm:  It’s like the newlywed game.  Mrs. Tomato did it and here’s how she described it: 

“Basically, the bride/groom take off their shoes and trade one shoe so that each are holding a bride shoe and a groom shoe. The couple is then seated back to back (we had chairs set up at the front of the room so everyone could see) so that they can’t see each other.

The emcee then asks questions that the bride/groom must answer by raising the appropriate shoe:

Who is more likely to make breakfast in bed for the other?

Who is more likely to clean the bathroom?

Who is better looking?

Who is a better kisser?”
