Outdoor weddings are meant to be fun. With sumptuous feasts, flowing drinks, and the DJ breaking into beats, there’s never-ending joy and excitement. So, how about we take things up a notch with some exciting outdoor activities? Sounds like a plan, right?

But tell you what, these outdoor wedding activities aren’t just classic lawn games or bride and groom trivia. Today, we’ll introduce you to 3 unconventional outdoor wedding activities that will leave your guests wanting for more. Read on!

Giant Tic-Tac-Toe

Originally played indoors, this giant version of Tic-Tac-Toe is an excellent pick for an outdoor wedding. Simple to set up, players can take their turn for unexpected endings and accept victory or defeat. Oh, and guess what? Tic-tac-toes are giant ‘X’s and ‘O’s, which also stand for hugs and kisses—perfect for a day that celebrates the union of two lovers! Let’s find out what materials you need and how to set up this game.

What you need :

  • Chalks
  • Masking tapes
  • 15-20 paper plates (above six inches) 20 six-inch paper plates
  • Staple
  • Markers

How To Set Up:

  • Use chalk to draw the grid on the lawn.
  • Now draw giant ‘X’ and ‘O’.
  • Next, staple each plate to give it the shape of a disk you can throw into the grid.

How to play:

  • Start by standing at least 1-2 feet away from the grid.
  • Take turns throwing the disks, aiming for a square.
  • The first one to land three disks in the grid to cross out things vertically or horizontally wins the game.

Pro tip
: Make it a little bit harder for your guests with larger disks like 5*5 or 6*6. The bigger the disk, the greater the challenge, which means your guests will be engaged for a long time anticipating a win. 

Wedding Prize Wheel

Want to spice up things with an outdoor wedding game? Say yes to a giant wedding prize wheel, which is typically an oversized version of the “spin the wheel” game that e-commerce brands want us to play online to win giveaways and discount offers.

Nevertheless, it’s a cool game to have all your guests in one place and take turns to try their hand at spinning the wheel. You can have little chocolates, funny toys, cupcakes, and souvenirs as wedding prizes and instructions like “Give a speech”, “Propose someone”, or maybe “A bride and groom kiss” to get people cheering.

How to set up :

You can either construct a wedding prize wheel yourself with help from your friends and family or have one professionally designed.

How to play:

  • Ask your guest to try their luck in turning the wedding prize wheel and watch them burst into joy and laughter.

Lawn Bowling

Would you like your guests to get active? Well, nothing beats lawn bowling. It’s rarely thought of at outdoor weddings, but it definitely packs a punch. Besides, things are easy to set up. All you need is a bunch of wooden pins and a set of plastic balls. Make sure the wooden pins have a flat base so that they don’t topple.

How to set it up :

  • Choose a flat area outside to place the wooden pins.
  • Next, tape out a particular area resembling the “bowling lane.”
  • Place the wooden pins firmly.
  • Now, ask your guests to take turns knocking down the pins, as they typically do in a bowling game.
  • You can also split the guests into teams- Team Bride and Team Groom to make things even more competitive. Appoint someone to keep a scorecard.
