Everyone loves a good game of Jenga- a little competition, a bit of teasing, and loads of laughter echoing through the walls.

You can pick a Giant Jenga and get your game face on. There can be different teams or you can go solo- depending on the number of guests. Add a little twist by giving a task to whoever loses. It can be anything from performing a dance number to singing a song or even eating a super spicy pani-puri.

Dumb charade has been a summer vacation favorite for families for generations- so why abandon it on your wedding day?

You can make it competitive by adding timers, penalties, and making teams. It could be a bride vs groom family or an old-fashioned boy vs girl.

You can even keep individual scores by pre-deciding a list of movies and enclosing the names in chits. Maybe, later on, you can award whoever wins with a gift.

To add a bit of a wedding day touch, you can pick movies that were themed around weddings.

There are only two rules to this game- spin and pick between truth or dare.

To avoid getting up on a chilly night, you can keep the dares limited to the vicinity.

This is a sit-down version of musical chairs. All you need is a pillow, an app that pauses songs after a few seconds and of course, your friends and family.

To play this game, you’ve to sit in a circle and pass the pillow to each other in a clockwise manner. Whoever is holding the pillow when the song stops has to perform something. You can keep a bowl with some generic tasks to avoid deciding at the moment.

You can decide amongst these games to make your wedding day even more fun and memorable with your guests. After all, weddings are a chance to spend time with your relatives and friends who you, maybe, meet once a year. So don’t let that opportunity go of a night of friendly contests.
