Wedding Garden Game Ideas

What better way to keep your guests entertained during the day than with garden games. Hopefully this post will save you some precious planning time with some ideas! If you’re not up for some diy construction, most garden games can be sourced locally from hire companies, but also look for local ‘play associations’ who often hire them out at a low cost. For brides local to MK, check out https://www.mkpa.co.uk/resources/equipment-hire/  where you can hire giant Ten Pin Bowling and Giant Jenga for £10 each.
