Bingo has been a long-standing favorite social past-time for decades. It may have gotten stuck as a game reserved for charity halls, but the advent of online games caused a revival in its popularity. With its vintage-charm and no-nonsense theme, it’s not surprising that this numbers card game has become an inspiration for many weddings.
If you feel like bingo is part of the theme you would want for your nuptials, here are some inspirations you could use:
The Reception Amusement
Nothing beats a great wedding reception with really engaging games. Bingo is an ideal game to include because of the socialization element it requires. With bingo being highly customizable, you can have the game meld with your wedding theme like what this couple did as featured by StyleMePretty.com. You could also have the game serve a certain purpose, like match-making your invited single friends. Gaming community site FoxyBingo’s recently held bingo-dating event would be a good inspiration source you can consider.
The Invitation and Other Ideas
Bingo elements can be used to make your invitations quirky or unique. OffBeatBride.com has one particular suggestion that makes use of bingo cards as guest invitations. The numbers-calling element of the game can also be adapted during reception if you want your guests to really mingle. Have their names in a bingo roll, call them out and assign them to a certain seat. GreenWeddingShoes.com has another variation you could look into.
What could be more fun than having a theme that connotes fun, right? Bingo can be embedded into your theme and can even be used as pieces to the design of your reception venue, your table setting, even your cake. OneWed.com featured a photo that makes use of bingo as well as other games to make a quaint table setting perfect for a wedding whose couple loves board games.
Hopefully some of these bingo-themed suggestions will give you ideas on how your special day would really be engaging and fun. Whether you would like it quirky or you would like it conventional, the numbers game will surely be able to adapt.
