We wanted a whimsical, herb-garden inspired wedding weekend with an outdoor ceremony, a reception in a barn, a custom cocktail… and we knew we had to incorporate puzzle games into the proceedings, a big passion of ours!
Sick of those cringe wedding shower games with questions like “Who cleans more?” Not thrilled to play “Pin the peen” in front of your Great Aunt Sue? Here are three gender-neutral wedding shower games that are actually super fun to play (without the weird sexist angle).
I knew from the beginning that it was important to me, as a bisexual woman and someone with scoliosis, that I felt beautiful and myself on my wedding day. I dressed like the queer elf queen of my dreams.
At our reception, we had thrifted board games available for people who didn’t want to dance, and some of our friends played Trivial Pursuit all night!
An Offbeat Bride reader named Sandra recently wrote in to share the version of MINGLO aka Mingling Bingo that she did at her recent wedding, and we wanted to share it with those of y’all who might be looking for a fun game for wedding guests at YOUR weddings.
We had a very specific theme and vibe. Cynthia and I are huge nerds as we play a lot of games, watch anime, and read a lot of manga. We wanted our special day to reflect these interests and our planner, Two Perfect Events, helped us formulate what we wanted and generated awesome ideas. Since we've never been married before, this type of planning was completely foreign to us.
Laura and Creighton are gamers whose colorful green and purple wedding in Madison, Wisconsin blew our minds. From the epic amounts of foliage and greenery and whimiscal decor (that arch!) to the lush vine-covered cake to the Laura’s purple and green corset gown and matching hair, we were smitten by these two lovebirds.
Don’t miss the video games, board games, and arcade games(!) that gave everyone something rad to do at the reception…
