Believe it or not…

Yes, you could actually plan your wedding reception around your favorite board game, such as Monopoly, Scrabble or perhaps Trivial Pursuit… or you could set it up so that each guest table features elements of a variety of different games. The choice is yours.

Here are some unique wedding reception ideas based on board games that you might consider and should be fairly easy to set up:

Scrabble Themed Wedding

One of the all-time favorite games is Scrabble. This would make an awesome theme idea for your wedding.

Monopoly Wedding Idea

I don’t think there’s anyone who hasn’t played Monopoly at some point in their lives. Here are a few ideas for a Monopoly themed wedding:

Trivial Pursuit Wedding Theme

This unique wedding reception idea would work best for a smaller marriage celebration where you only have 6 guest tables.


These are just a few game ideas that could be used as truly unique wedding reception ideas – certainly something your guests will remember for many years after.

Although I’ve only supplied the three most popular boards games, there are plenty more out there that would work just as well with a little imagination. Some other popular board games are: Risk, Mah Jongg, Backgammon, Battleship, Checkers, Chess, Outburst, and Cranium. So, choose your favorite game and turn it into a great theme wedding! Be unique!
