Wedding Reception Games
Specific Wedding Reception Activities
Right after the cocktail hour when guests have finally found their dinner seating is the perfect time for a game.
There are usually about 10 to 15 minutes when guests are just sitting and waiting for the bride and groom to enter the room.
Instead of sitting in silence or awkwardly trying to introduce themselves to each other, your guests can play an icebreaker.
Table Mate Trivia
Before the wedding you can find out one very interesting fact about each of your guests. Maybe one guest has been on over 20 cruises or maybe another guest lived on a farm when she was a child.
For each table, make game sheets for each guests that has a blank next to the interesting fact. Each person at the table will fill in the blanks next to each fact with the name of someone else at the table.
Of course you should have everyone turn their place cards so that they can easily be read by everyone at the table.
The person at each table that gets the most answers correct wins a prize or gets to take home the centerpiece for that table if you are giving them away.
Playing a wedding reception game like this
You could get a black jack table rental from a casino equipment rental company.
These companies usually also rent out roulette, craps, and poker tables along with dealers that may show your guests how to play these games.
Your guests could just play for chips instead of cash so that the games remain friendly and no one goes home regretting being a part of your celebration festivities.
Having games during your reception can really keep the party going if you want your guests to continue your wedding celebration long after the dancing has stopped.
