There’s nothing worse than seeing a guest sat at their table, a little bored and playing bingo on mobile to pass a bit of time. But why not bring the bingo to them. Bingo is a great game to enjoy at a wedding, as it’s a mass player game, it’s fun, and it requires no skill at all, just the ability to keep up with the calling.
You can offer prizes for the winner, giving a little back to the guests who have potentially spent large sums just to even be there.
The popular lawn game is ideal for weddings that have a bit of outdoor space. They bring both a bit of fun and a bit of class to proceedings and you can also get a bit of competition going. Bridesmaids v groomsmen anyone?
Croquet is a fun game for couples to team up on and in between events at the wedding is a great way to kick back and enjoy the sunshine, if you’re lucky enough to have it.
Similarly, bowls is another great game for wedding parties with outdoor space. The game is easy to play, requires little exertion and allows players to join forces or go head-to-head individually.
For the more modern wedding party, or those that enjoy a bit of gaming, setting up an arcade is an incredibly cool way to entertain guests. Retro arcade games are in vogue currently, and giving players the opportunity to enjoy a bit of Mario Kart or Street Fighter in the down time part of the day, well, they may just think it’s the best wedding ever.
One for the bigger budgets, why not set up some fairground games, whether they be bigger budget rides, or simple games like setting up a coconut shy or pin the tail on the donkey.
You can get groomsmen, ushers, or bridesmaids to operate the stalls as part of their duties, with the rest of the guests getting to have all the fun of the fair directly from your wedding.
