Garden weddings are special, especially now with nobody wanting to be cooped up indoors. Delight your guests by playing a selection of Wedding Lawn Games!

Wedding lawn games are sure to bring smiles to your guests’ faces. They are the perfect way to keep everyone occupied in between meal courses or all the formalities of a wedding. An added bonus is the collection of candid photos you’ll treasure of your guests having fun. They’ll be talking about your wedding for years to come.

Ballara Receptions has everything you need for the ultimate garden wedding. Rolling lawns, beautiful gardens, as well as a chapel and ballroom are all your disposal. You can also enjoy the lakeside area and private garden area – perfect for wedding lawn games. If you’re looking for inspiration, here is a list of some of the classics.


This is a fun game for all ages and great to play at a lawn wedding. Toss four rings in an underarm action over pegs that make a cross formation. Each peg has a different number of points. The first players to reach 500 points is the winner. You must throw from behind a 3-metre line, but that can be increased to make it more challenging. We challenge anyone to play this game without having loads of fun!

Wedding Lawn Games - Giant Jenga

Giant Jenga

There is something fantastic about playing your favorite games in a giant format. Jenga is a classic, simple, and everyone knows how to play it! No two games are ever the same and you can never predict the winner. The suspense as the tower teeters leads to it being a team effort to make it stay standing. You can order personalized blocks with the happy couple’s initials or names, and you can keep playing it years into the marriage.

Giant Noughts and Crosses

There are two options for the giant lawn version. The grid can be made of rope and the pieces made of wood. Alternatively, some couples order a giant personalised and custom-made wooden board with pieces. There isn’t a person on this planet that hasn’t enjoyed a good game of noughts and crosses – it is always a crowd-pleaser!

Wedding Lawn Games - Giant Naughts and Crosses

Giant Dominoes

This is an absolute blast that will keep have your guests talking about it for years to come. If you’re a dominoes fan, adding a large format version of the game for your friends and family to play is a great ice-breaker and always makes things interesting.


Players take turns throwing bags of corn kernels at a raised platform (board) with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the board scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches or exceeds the score of 21. You can order personalised boards – including a meaningful message or the names of the married couple.
