Now, this is a wedding trend I can really get into - and it's perfect for sunny, warm-weather, outdoor Florida weddings. Games!
I'll admit, I like the concept even more because you get to make adorable hand-drawn signs like these... (from Style Me Pretty, photographed by Jenna Trapasso)
Or maybe it's how well games fit in with a picnic reception? I've always wanted to go to one... sip lemonade on the lawn, play croquet, fly a kite? (from Chris & Tim's wedding at Martha Stewart's estate in Bedford)
Why not glam it up a bit? This one's for you, Rebecca: a glittered croquet set by Mintage Home on Etsy.
Cornhole (aka bean bag toss) has been getting a lot of wedding blog love lately, but I love how One Little Spring Designs is making it classy with this silhouette design. Adorable!
Lawn bowling! Who doesn't love bowling? (Actually, who doesn't love everything about this incredibly cute outdoor wedding from Grey Likes Weddings, photographed by Ben Sasso)
I think it would be fun to bring the fall season into your games, too. Martha has a squash bowling DIY (so easy and adorable), and I'm obsessed with this pumpkin bowling idea at the Bachman's Idea House, from Rosebud's Cottage... hay-lined bowling lanes!? Love.
But maybe something unexpected is the best idea of all? This outdoor scrabble idea from Sunset Magazine is just that.
