Take advantage of beautiful weather and a gorgeous outdoor venue by kicking off the post-ceremony celebration with wedding lawn games. Set up on the grass for couples or groups, yard games for weddings are not only fun to play but can also act as an extension of your décor, be it rustic, beachy or boho. When selecting outdoor wedding lawn games, play up your theme, wedding colors and anything that helps to tell your love story.
- Ring Toss: Honor the exchanging of rings with the wedding games version of ring toss. Make your own ring toss set with painted glass wine or soda bottles in your wedding colors and decorate with faux jewels to make the tossers reminiscent of your wedding rings.
- Cornhole: Turn this tailgating favorite into a great wedding game for guests. Customize the boards with your wedding date and your new last name, and you’ll have a memorable backyard game to use in your own yard for years to come.
- Giant Connect Four: Step this classic childhood game up a notch by making it giant-sized. For a fun touch, paint the playing pieces in two of your wedding hues and let the connecting fun begin.
- Badminton: Set up a net to encourage guests to volley the birdie back and forth. If you’re looking to round out a boho vibe, have a bit of fun with your net choice by hanging a wide macramé curtain from a rod on stands. For a nighttime option, lace twinkling lights into the net to keep the wedding lawn games going long after sundown.
- Giant Checkers: Create this well-known game board using spray paint on grass or chalk on pavement, or even roll out a checkered game board rug for a reusable option after the wedding lawn games are done. Incorporate your wedding colors by painting the pieces accordingly.
- Ladder Golf: Another popular game played at parking lot parties, ladder golf is fun for two or more people to play. Teams take turns throwing bolas (two golf balls attached at either end of a nylon rope) at the ladder. First team to 21 points wins!
- Giant Jenga: Marriage is a game of balance, and no game better represents that than Jenga. Use a large, outdoor-sized version as a wedding game and include “Did You Know” facts about you and your partner on each block for a personalized touch.
