Outdoor Reception Fun: Lawn Games

Maybe it's our complete giddiness over the glorious sunshine we're finally enjoying here in North Texas, but we cannot stop thinking about outdoor weddings! This is one of the loveliest times of year here in the South for outdoor ceremonies and receptions but the torrential rains we've had all but put the kibosh on that! NO more - hooray! So that has us thinking about all the wonderful things about outdoor celebrations - enjoying milder weather, taking in beautiful scenery, dancing under the stars and playing lawn games! That's right - lawn games!
Lawn games are fantastic to have available during cocktail hour, giving your guests something fun to do while sipping and noshing so you and your wedding party can finish up photos! While lawn games will feel like a better fit for a less formal affair, most people love games and the "usuals" aren't so physically demanding that they can't be playing in wedding attire. And, let's be honest, lawn games make for some stinkin' cute photo opportunities!
Cornhole (or Corntoss or Bean Bag Toss) is always a favorite and it's simple.

Another standard is Croquet!

Bocce Ball or Lawn Bowling, anyone?

Who doesn't love Jenga? Make it epic with Outdoor Giant Jenga!

Ring Toss or Horseshoes are classics that anyone can master.

Another crowd pleaser that possibly not everyone has seen is Ladder Golf.

Whether or not you can incorporate such good times in your wedding reception will depend, of course, on your venue. Check with your facility contact to see if they're open to gaming during your celebration! And get out there and enjoy this sunshine!
