It can sometimes be difficult to find wedding entertainment ideas that entertain all of your wedding guests. Wedding games are becoming more and more popular, especially for outdoor weddings or weddings where children are in attendance. 

What better to get all of your guests involved than to host a fun activity of games. Along with the popular suggestions such as beer pong, there are many others games such as; giant Jenga or tug of war? If you are hosting a winter wedding inside then you may be looking at wedding table games instead, who knows the bride the best? Or a group quiz.
