Fun Lawn Games for Your Outdoor Wedding
Entertaining Your Guests On A Budget
Planning an outdoor wedding has its challenges, but keeping your guests happy and entertained on a budget shouldn’t be one of them. As long as you’ve got a healthy patch of grass to work with, you should be all set to host THE wedding of the season. For a guaranteed good time at your outdoor reception, consider these tried-and-true lawn game ideas from Weed Man Lawn Care:
This old-fashioned lawn game dates back to 1860s Scotland, and is the perfect outdoor activity for kids and adults alike. To get started, all you’ll need is a set of mallets, colored wooden balls, 9 wickets (gates), and two stakes – all of which come standard in a backyard croquet set. Played in teams, doubles, or singles, the object of the game is to score more wickets than your opponent.
2. Lawn Bocce
Bocce can be played with either two, four or eight players. The eight balls are divided between the number of players. If there are two teams, then players get two sets of colored balls each. Four players would get one set of colored balls each, and eight players would get one ball each for a total of four teams. A player is picked to throw the pallino, and he throws it from behind the line towards the other end of the pitch. The object is to be “inside” or closest to the pallino. A point is awarded to the person or team that has a ball nearest to the pallino.
3. Bean Bag Toss
Also known as Cornhole, Corn Toss, Baggo or Bags, this incredibly popular lawn game involves players taking turns throwing bean bags at a raised platform with a hole in the far end. A bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point. Play continues until a team or player reaches a score of 21.
Badminton is a racquet sport played by either two opposing players (singles) or two opposing pairs (doubles), who take positions on opposite halves of a rectangular court that is divided by a net. Players score points by striking a shuttlecock with their racquet so that it passes over the net and lands in their opponents’ half of the court. Each side may only strike the shuttlecock once before it passes over the net. A rally ends once the shuttlecock has struck the floor or if a fault has been called.
