With our shared passion for gaming, we believe that the captivating world of games can serve as a fantastic muse for a wedding celebration. Below, we present a collection of our most cherished concepts that we eagerly share, in hopes of igniting your imagination!
1. Seating cards
Utilize game pieces such as dominoes and checkers to designate the tables, as suggested by The Knot and Style Me Pretty.

3. Board Game Boutonnieres
Our love for unconventional boutonnieres knows no bounds, and these ones are simply adorable! They would be an ideal fit for a whimsical Candy Land, chic dominoes, or playful poker inspired wedding! Thanks to Wedding Chicks, BrideTide, and Fritts Rosenow for the inspiration.

It would add an adorable touch if the card values aligned with the age depicted in the photo, as suggested by Martha Stewart. Take inspiration from Monopoly and create “Chance” lottery tickets for some added excitement, just like they did on Wedding Bee. Alternatively, get crafty and fashion unique magnets using scrabble pieces, a delightful project shared on Project Wedding!
5. Scrabble Tiles
The utilization of scrabble tiles in weddings has become a popular trend in recent times, and it’s not hard to see why! These adorable and versatile game pieces add a touch of charm. Seek out pre-owned Scrabble sets at secondhand shops.

Despite not being classified as a traditional “game,” puzzles undeniably earn their place on this list. The allure of two distinct pieces flawlessly intertwining holds a profound significance, particularly in the context of a wedding celebration.

Unleash your creativity with a unique twist on invitations! Surprise your guests with a delightful challenge by sending them unassembled puzzle pieces that come together to reveal your special invitation or save the date.

The sweet treat could showcase charming puzzle cookies, from “Fully Baked,” and a cake adorned with fondant puzzle sections, according to Elizabeth Anne Designs.
