Croquet is an American favorite As a wedding yard game, croquet can keep any age group entertained for hours. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you do need a designated area for it, as the wickets in the game can easily trip guests up during the reception when not clearly marked.

Horseshoes

There’s something about horseshoes at a wedding that always make me smile. Horseshoes are considered a lucky gift to give the bride and groom, supposedly providing both luck and fertility to the happy couple as they enter their marriage. When you incorporate horseshoes into your wedding lawn games of choice, it can be seen as a nod to both good luck and good fun for all ages!
