seesom:  Lawn games are a great idea! Also I’ve heard of having a board games area with games that don’t necessarily need to have a lot of play time invested (ex. Jenga). I’m interested to hear other ideas!

Lawn and board games would be awesome!  We had mad libs that I made (3 different versions) and we played the shoe game.  No one had seen either at a wedding and they were both big hits!

The shoe game could be a good way to keep people entertained.

Sit back to back in the dance floor with your partner holding one of your shoes each, get someone to read it questions (eg who drives the worst, who tells the worst jokes etc) and you both raise the show of the person you think is the right answer. It’s always a laugh because you can’t see how each other answers 🙂

I’ve seen several weddings with lawn games, beer pong, and or flip cup.

As an alternative to the shoe game….went to a wedding this weekend where they printed childhood photos of the groom on one side of a paddle/fan, and one of the bride on the other side. Each guest got one and the DJ would ask questions like “which one played the flute in high school?” and you’d hold up the paddle for your guess. Interactive, a good use of a few minutes.
