Weddings are becoming more and more unconventional. Different wedding reception games are now part of the celebration making the event fun and unforgettable.
Here are some modern wedding reception games:
Corn Toss Sets
Players take turns throwing bags of corn toward the hole. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches the score of 21. For complete rules, check out the Wiki article on Cornhole
There’s a few variations to this game including individual races, relay races, team races even three legged races – you can check out the rules and variations at Sack Races
Pair the gals vs the guys, the bridesmaids vs groomsmen, the husbands vs wives. Officially Drunk has the rules plus diagrams for play along with other drinking games for your enjoyment.
The couple sits back to back so they don’t see their partners’ answers. They swap a shoe with each other so they are holding one of each. Someone asks the couple a series of questions about their relationship (ranging from the sweet questions such as“Who said ‘I love you’ first?” to funny questions designed to get laughs “Who is the better driver?” to embarrassing questions such as “Who has the smelliest feet?”). The couple answers the question by holding up the corresponding shoe.
He Said She Said Game
List the answers to the question on a scorecard omitting the he / she words from the answer. Such as “This person said the best date was a movie in a park under the stars.” Your guests circle who they think gave the answer – the bride or the groom.
Place a card with all the list of things that needed to be photographed, a disposable camera or their smartphones, and a pencil at each seat, and see who can photograph all the items on the list first. It’s a wonderful way to get extra photos from your wedding.
Booklets To Fill In
These little booklets will come in handy for the couple after the wedding. Come up with a question for each table, and put a mini booklet and pens for guests to add their ideas. Some suggestions:
What should we do on date nights?
What should we name our first child?
How should we celebrate our first anniversary?
What’s the secret to a happy marriage?
Paint used bottles in your wedding colors, arrange in a wooden crate, and decorate embroidery hoops with pretty fabrics
Jenga is played with 54 wooden blocks. Each block is three times as long as its width, and one fifth as thick as its length. During the game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then balanced on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller but less stable structure.

You can customize and make your own games. Make sure to join in with the games too. It’s not just for your guests but a perfect time to bond with your spouse, family, and friends.
Congratulations and best wishes to you!
