It is the perfect season to incorporate games into your wedding because you have so many creative options. When you are planning an October or very early November wedding you can provide pumpkins for each guest and have them decorate or carve their pumpkin any way they want. An impartial individual can then choose the guest that they feel did a better job than anyone else and reward them with a prize.
If the weather cooperates an outdoor wedding reception could include an autumn themed scavenger hunt. This is a game guests of any age can participate in. Gathering the materials for this game would be easy to do, as you could use items related to the season. It is also a great way for the wedding party to be more involved because they can be the ones to hide the items prior to the arrival of the guests.
Creating a customized crossword puzzle to hand out at the wedding reception is also a great way to embrace the season. Using clues related to the season you can keep your guests entertained and make the day feel more festive. You can go online and find crossword puzzles that you can download, print out, and glue or tape to cardboard squares.
Another creative option for a fall wedding game is to take a photo of trees, leaves, pumpkins or other seasonal items and have the photo turned into a puzzle. Set up a table at your wedding reception where guests can come by and help put the puzzle together. This also gives you a unique souvenir of your wedding day because once the puzzle is complete you can have it glued together and framed.
If you will be having kids at your wedding there are some games that you can plan just for them. Purchase a bunch of fake pumpkins from a craft store and buy colored rings that you can use to set up a pumpkin ring toss.
For the football fans in your life, if you are having an outdoor wedding you can even set up a touchdown toss game. You can purchase or build the game and set it up for guests. It can be built using plywood and hinges. Cut a circle or two into the plywood and prop it up so that guests can each grab a small football and take a shot at getting it through one of the circles.
There are many games that you can include as part of your fall wedding. Your only limits are your budget and your imagination. Including games in your wedding can make the experience fun for everyone and will help your guests mingle with each other. These games can be played at your discretion.
