One of the things we evangelize most on DIY Bride is treating your guests well at the wedding. Whether its with great food, ample shelter, or fun activities, making the people who’re sharing your day feel included and comfortable is so important. When we saw this wedding from NYC couple, Lisa and Kyle, their awesome games area at their Wisconsin wedding on a farm, blew us away.
Photographer Katie from Ricard Photography, fills us in on some of the story behind the games:
…They also brought along a lot of really fun yard games for their guests. They wanted their day to be all about fun and family and friends just enjoying their time together. Lisa and Kyle love playing Scrabble, so they decided to build a giant scrabble board, complete with perfectly painted letters (seriously the most amazing thing I’ve seen at a wedding ever). They also created a fun wedding football game that was a big hit with adults and kids alike.
Now that’s an excellent way to for guests to spend time together!
What’s even more impressive is Lisa and Kyle made drove all the way to Wisconsin from New York with a U-Haul full of amazing wedding day details that they made themselves like the french doors used as a backdrop in their ceremony. Kyle put together and mounted the doors himself. They were a beautiful addition, and at the end of the ceremony, they walked through the doors together for the first time as husband and wife.
