Fun & Games { Activity Ideas }


Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding with everyone bonding and living happily ever after. Activities during the reception can create a solid foundation for future friendships. Depending on your venue, here are a few fun and useful ideas:

Outdoor activities

  • Lay out a crochet field
  • The traditional “boeresport” consisting of three-legged racing, balancing a potato on a spoon while running, sack races, 2 person teams with one blindfolded and the other shouting instructions.
  • Hire big board games to place on the lawn. These could include chess, snakes and ladders or scrabble.
  • Have ring toss games and ten-pin bowling
  • Have a popcorn or ice cream table with different toppings

Indoor activities

  • Ask a confident and very social friend who can dance to go on YouTube and learn a few easy line dances prior to the wedding to teach to guests at the reception.
  • Prepare a quiz of the bridal couple for the guests to discuss at their tables.
  • Put a few brain teasers on the tables to occupy the non-dancing guests.
  • Have a few rounds of musical chairs.
  • Have more than one photo booth, some can be 3D, with a wide variety of props

It is important to remember to choose activities that your guests will enjoy and that are age and personality appropriate.
