10 Brilliant Wedding Games to Entertain Every Guest

On the run up to the Big Day, many couples panic about how they’re going to entertain guests. Truth is, Irish weddings are long, and if there’s nothing going on while the couple is off getting their post-ceremony snaps, guests can get a little bit weary. One way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to pop on a couple of games to keep them busy! Lawn games such as croquet, ring toss and – for those up for it – limbo, are brilliant for creating a fun party atmosphere and get guests chatting. If yours isn’t a summer wedding, bring the fun indoors. Providing short board games like Jenga, Connect 4, draughts or just some cards will give a couple of groups something to concentrate on while waiting for dinner to be served.

Below are some of our favourite lawn and table wedding games for bringing out your guests’ competitive side!
