While you probably spend most of your free time ironing out all the details of your big day, it is important to find ways to slow down and enjoy yourself. What better way to relax than by inviting a few close friends over to your home for a game night? This is an ideal way to kick back and unwind before married life begins. Best of all, you won’t need to do very much to get the plans off the ground.

If you and your significant other want to throw a game night, now is a great time to figure out a plan. Look at these tips and get ready to have some fun and engage in some friendly competition.

Selecting the Game

The first step is to select a game. This can be the most challenging step, depending on what you own and the types of friends you have. Games come in an array of shapes, sizes, and difficulty levels, so you’ll find it is helpful to take your time and really weigh your options. Do your friends get really competitive? Are people looking for something casual to play while they chat and snack? These questions can help you narrow down your choices and select the right entertainment.

Your best bet will be to grab a few options. Board games are not very expensive, so you may want to go to the store and see what new games might catch your eye. The beauty of living in modern times is that a lot of party games are now available as apps. This means you can find an array of exciting, engaging games that you can play with friends simply by looking at your phone. Try not to get your heart set on one particular game, however, as you’ll need to see what the group consensus is.

Picking Winning Snacks

You’ve selected a game or two and feel good about your choices, now you need to pick some snacks. Outside of the games, snacks are a huge aspect of this type of gathering. There are a few different ways you can go about selecting your food and drink options. One simple solution is to grab some bags of chips and some soda from the store. If you’re dealing with a health-oriented crowd, then look for more nutritious options like carrot sticks, granola, or fresh fruit.

If you want to get a bit more in-depth with your snacking, try to create a theme around the games that will be played. A game like Risk, for example, is set around global domination. Make a selection of snacks that mirror the different countries featured on the game’s board. Playing Monopoly? Whip up some boardwalk-type snacks like fries and funnel cakes for added authenticity. Be as simple or creative as you like, just make sure the snacks are tasty and you’ll easily be able to please the crowd.

Making It a Dating Game

Finally, one fun twist you can put on your game night is to make it wedding related. Invite couples over to your house and play games that are reminiscent of old game shows like The Dating Game or The Newlywed Game. This is a fun way for couples to test their knowledge and bond at the same time. Plus, it will make you feel like you’re still doing “wedding tasks” when, in fact, you’re having a good time relaxing with some close friends.

A game night is an excellent opportunity for you and your significant other to unwind while planning for your big day. As long as you have good friends, good food, and engaging games, the rest will fall into place.
