    Hello Ladies
    I am getting married in August this year. Our wedding reception will be on the deck of a beach house literally meters to the water.
    Because we are providing transport for our guests out to the reception – 20min drive from where most people will be staying – I was looking for ideas on ways to entertain our guests until we are seated for dinner.
    Our guests will be transported from the ceremony site to the reception site so there will be approx an hour to fill in. I’m trying to avoid people hitting the bar too hard for something to do. Any ideas for distractions?
    I was going to set up a small bocce ball area (my FH’s family are really competitive so this may end badly but oh well) We are already at the top end of our budget so ideas that won’t cost much or involve hiring anyone would be great. We are a little limited on beachfront area that day too as it will be high tide.
    Thank you for the ideas

    At our engagement party we played trivia. We printed out questions sheets and guests had to answer the questions. Some were serious with right or wrong answers, but most of them were silly and guests had to write something funny. We gave a prize to the best one. I’ll put the questions here so you and anyone else can use them as examples.
