Inspired by You Contest! Entry #2 Weddings Inspired by Reception Games

Today is the second entry in the series of Inspired by You contest posts! We will be posting the final entry next week and each remaining post will have the opportunity to generate as many comments as it can in a week before the next post goes live. The person with the most comments at the end wins the big prizes from Cupcakes Couture, Custom Programs, and Wedding Chicks!

Today’s Inspiration was submitted by Sandy! Sandy was inspired by activities and games you can play during your reception! I love this new trend in weddings and I think it’s just going to get bigger because interactive weddings are a big hit with guests! Games bring guests together and gives them something to do while taking a break from dancing.  Add one of these activities below and you will have a wedding people will be talking about for years!

    Leila- why didn’t we do games for our wedding? Knowing now that we could’ve had games at the wedding I feel like I really got short changed :)

    Plus, you know that this would’ve been my dad’s dream wedding for us, right?
