Giant Lawn Games

Everyone’s favourite games in giant form? Yes please!

Have a game of Giant Jenga going, so your guests can build, destroy, and build again. It’s a crowd favourite, along with giant Connect Four and even giant Guess Who.

They can all be easily found online and are sure to please the masses.


A classic for outdoor weddings, despite certain stereotypes about the sport!

It’s a game to be played by anyone, employing as much skill and strategy as any other sport.

It has fast become a wedding staple as everyone can get in on the action and play as a team.


This one is particularly great for weddings.

Many couples personalise their cornhole boards and beanbags by painting sweet wedding-appropriate slogans or pictures on them.

Themed Photo Booth

Set up a photo booth with plenty of props for your chosen theme. Lean towards silly fun. Everyone can get creative with single, paired or group shots and ridiculous props.

The pics will be far from traditional wedding photos and can be treasured by all your guests.

Picture Scavenger Hunt

Run a digital scavenger hunt by creating a list of 20 wedding moments that guests can capture on their phones.

Some examples – the wedding couple kissing, two people clinking their glasses, someone breakdancing on the dancefloor and so on.

You can even make it a contest by choosing the best photo from each category.

Wheel of Fun

To keep your guests interacting, have a custom wheel of activities that can be spun throughout the reception.

Options include things like ‘show us your best dance move’, ‘pick a couple to kiss’ and ‘groom dipping the bride on the dance floor’.
