Weddings are the best time to bring all your favorite people together to celebrate you and your love!

One of our favorite ways to bring the party to a wedding is packing it full of fun game options for every.
These wedding games for guests are full of laughter, fun, and even some kissing.
Fun Wedding Reception Games for Guests
Wedding Couple Mad Libs: Want marriage and love advice from your family and friends? Create a Mad Libs-style template for guests to fill out at their tables. This is one of the wedding games guests can do alone, or the whole table can get in on the fun, sharing their tips on how to keep the spark alive, where to go on “married dates,” and other words of wisdom.
I Dare You: Have a few wallflowers among your guests? Help them join in the fun by placing fun dare options on each table. Keep in mind who will be seated at each table when you prepare the dares. Ideas include: “kiss the person to either side of you,” “take a selfie with a funny face,” “bust a new move on the dance floor,” and “do a group shot at the bar.”
Cornhole: Cornhole is the perfect lawn game for couples that want to make extra activities feel like a cohesive part of the overall wedding décor. This creative couple painted and personalized their boards and the beanbags, too.
Large Word Search: Transform a chalkboard into a creative word search that your guests can try their hand at all evening long. The trick to DIY-ing this word search game is to write the individual letters in permanent paint and provide chalk only for circling words. Get creative and include personal trivia about the two of you as a couple for guests to find.
Board Games During Wedding
Bored-No-More Board Games: Take a playful—and colorful—approach to your centerpieces by using board games as mid-table eye candy. Dominoes, decks of cards, Trivial Pursuit, Life, and Yahtzee all make for crowd-pleasing wedding games guests can play.

Bride and Groom Trivia: Let one lucky guest from each table make a play to take home the centerpiece or a prize. Create a list of trivia questions about the bride and groom for guests to answer. Have the DJ or a wedding party member read the answers. The person at each table with the most correct answers wins.
Couple’s Crossword: Another way to test your guests’ newlywed knowledge is to create a crossword puzzle entirely based on information about the bride and groom. Winners with the most correct answers for this wedding game don’t have to win anything beyond bragging rights.
Wedding Day Games for Guests
The Kissing Game: Not a fan of kissing when guests clink their glasses? Break out a giant DIY die (basically a large decorated square box) to decide the pucker-up type. Label each side with “peck on the cheek,” “showstopper kiss,” “take a selfie kiss,” “roll again,” “bride kisses guest,” and “groom kisses guest”—or come up with your own options. Roll the die every time you hear that familiar clinking sound!
Stand Up, Sit Down: All that sitting during the reception can be hard on guests’ backsides. Get them on their feet with a trivia game that instructs people to stand or sit in response to questions about the bride and groom.
Wedding Scavenger Hunt: Here is another fun way to make sure your guests stay entertained throughout the whole wedding. Bonus, you get some great photos because of it! The Wedding Scavenger Hunt game is a great way to give your guests a mission during the celebration but also pushing them to have a little more fun. Make sure each guest grabs a copy of your picture scavenger hunt wedding game and shares their photos with you via Social Media or hand out a few disposable cameras to develop later.
Spin the Wheel: To encourage guest interaction, consider creating a custom wheel of activities that can be spun throughout the reception. This creative option includes details like “Pick a Couple to Kiss,” “Show Us Your Best Dance Moves” and the classic “Bride & Groom Kiss.”
