Mealey Wedding Details Part IV- Lounge Area & Lawn Games

I’ve always loved the idea of having fun, lawn games out & about for guests to help themselves to at weddings. So we did the same thing! I bought a few few from Oriental Trading & Academy, used some we already had & rented one from the same place we got our chairs & pews.

I love the idea of lawn games for several reasons-  they give guests something to do if they’re not into dancing & get bored, it’s a great icebreaker, the perfect way to keep your younger guests busy, & it serves as an awesome transition area between the ceremony & reception.

We created a circle of sorts with various pieces of outdoor/ “lounge” furniture encompassing all the lawn game areas.

We set up a handful of hay bale couches too! They have seating on both sides. Each arrangement took 7 bales- 4 laying across the bottom to form the seat with 3 standing up in between them to create the backs. They were covered with random pillows & old quilts. Kind of wishing we would’ve taken a photo sitting on one now!

The games were scattered across the lounge area & I used chalkboard arrows (Target One Spot) & some vinyl to mark each area.

We even prettied the area up with some extra centerpieces. You can read up all about my centerpieces in this post!
