Table Games for Wedding Parties
1. Write-up Games
The easiest and cheapest way you can make your wedding fun is by getting colorful cards or papers and some pens. All you have to do is get the stationary distributed among your guests and ask them to write something like:
- A secret that they know about either of the new spouses
- Wishes for the couple
- Comments on things they don’t like or like the most about your party
Once the writing part is done, you can have some volunteers read the notes out loud. Both you and your guests will enjoy this activity thoroughly.
2. Board Games
Board games are slowly becoming an integral part of activities incorporated in wedding parties. You can either choose a single board game and arrange it on every table or get different board games placed on the side of each table and allow your guests to play whichever they want to.
3. Snap It Game
This game includes distributing a list of objects or people that is distributed to the guests. The guests will then use their mobile phones to snap those objects at our wedding venue. Arrange gifts for those who get done quickly and distribute them during the wedding party only.
Games for Outdoor Wedding Parties
