A significant part of planning a wedding involves devising ways to keep guests entertained throughout the reception. Hiring a live band or bringing in a photobooth definitely raise the bar, but incorporating lawn games into the agenda is a great way to increase the evening’s overall fun factor. No longer reserved for backyard BBQs or tailgates, these activities are a great way to keep attendees occupied during downtime (like when the bridal party is greeting guests or being photographed, for example). Yard games also help friends and family members to break the ice, encouraging guests to mingle with one another.
