Including some games for your wedding celebration is an excellent way to make your day even more memorable. It encourages your guests to mingle and get to know one another better. Organizing a cornhole tournament is one way to spice up your wedding, especially if you’re holding it outdoors. It’s easy to play and suitable for all ages.

An Entertaining and Cost-Effective Wedding Activity

During your wedding reception, your guest may eventually get tired of taking photos. They may also wait in long lines to have their pictures taken in photo booths. Don’t let your guests feel bored at your party. A cornhole set in your venue allows your visitors to entertain themselves.

You can even use custom-made cornhole boards to make them more personal. They can be functional decoration, too. For example, have your photo or name printed either on the boards or the bags.

If you don’t want to buy cornhole equipment, try making your own. You can get a step-by-step guide online on building your own cornhole boards and bags. You may even find some materials in your home, which means you don’t have to spend much on this DIY project.

Team Bride vs. Team Groom

The rules are simple. Each team has to toss a corn bag into the hole or as close as possible. Your scores depend on the value of the bag. For example, every bag that rests on top of the board is equal to one point. Meanwhile, every bag that goes through the hole is equivalent to three points.

You can set up your court on a flat surface in the venue. Ideally, the area should be eight to 10 feet wide and at least 40 to 45 feet long. Place the boards facing each other with a 27-foot space between their front edges.

Take Home Special Memories

Although this is only a friendly game, you may also prepare exciting prizes for the winning team. They don’t have to be big, but at least something that would remind them of this special day. It can be a trophy. It can also be gift certificates to a restaurant or spa. Alternatively, you could get the wedding photographer to create a special album of the tournament, and that could be the winner’s prize. It may be the best memento any wedding guest could get.

Making everyone happy on your wedding day is an incredible gift. By adding a fun twist to the romantic celebration, your guests will also be able to remember your special day better than other weddings they’ve attended.
