Question_mark Question:

I am wondering if I should play games at my wedding... and if so, how many and what type? I dont want to ruin my guests experience with too many tacky stuff ;)


It sounds like you sense that games at weddings can be seen as a little too alternative, so here's what I suggest...don't plan any games where guests are all invited to play. People can feel obligated, and that's where some might see the plan as tacky. BUT it's a big new trend to set out lawn games like bocce or cornhole games -- look at Pinterest if you're not sure what this popular beanbag toss game is -- on the lawn around your outdoor cocktail party or outdoor reception. Set up signs inviting guests to play if they wish, and then you have provided fun activities for guests to enjoy without anything being tacky. The top wedding planners are setting up great lawn games like these, and guests of all ages love them!
