One of our favourite ways of keeping your guests entertained is by holding a contest to guess the length of the speeches. People can place their bets on how long the groom’s speech will be, and whoever guesses right wins a prize. No pressure, groom! Another great game for the speeches is to give each guest a different word they can pick out of a hat, each time that word is said during a speech they have to have a drink…. think words like, wife, husband, groom, bride, lovely, thank you, beautiful…..

If your guests don’t all know each other, why not offer a jar of ice-breaker games on each wedding table. You could create mini dares and tasks for your guests to carry out during the reception. It’s a simple yet fun way to get everyone talking and enjoying themselves.
