    Absolutely LOVE your t-shirts!!! Soooo stealing your idea - it's too cute not to...    We are doing 'Wedding Olympics' and were going to have cheesy medals as prizes but.... HA!   T-shirts it is!!!

     

    We're going to have a volleyball game, pool basketball (hopefully we can get the space), ring toss, sand cake building, water balloon toss, a couple of relay races, i.e 3-legged and over/under. We have a very mixed group with a couple of children, some older folks, lots of sporty guys and some really fun gals so we wanted to try and have at least one thing that everyone could participate in. But, we didn't even think of a drinking game  . Yes, we must add one to the list.... Thanks jreist!!!!

      that's an awesome idea. We had thought of doing that too. Are you organizing that on your own or are you booking the volleyball courts at your resort etc?

        I love the Olympics idea too! Definitely a fun way for the guests to interact.

I figured if we put some events on the Welcome booklet then they are welcome to drop in and meet the other guests if they are just lounging that day anyways.

           

          One idea I had is to have a beer chugging competition, where our guests would get into teams, and the winning team gets a prize.

           

          I was also thinking maybe we could organize a volleyball game with just our guests on one of the days, for whoever is on the resort and wants to show up..

           

           

          Any other ideas?  

           

           

          We've got some prizes planned for guests who meet certain 'criteria' throughout the week, and all the prizes come with a T-shirt with a label describing what they 'won' (and that they won it at our wedding in Jamaica)... For example we have the 'PARTY ANIMAL' award for the Guest who gets a little too wild. And we've got the "SUN BURN CHAMPION" award. And the "PARTY FOUL" award for the guest who gets too sloppy. I think we will make ones for "BEER CHUGGING CHAMPION" too, for the winners of the beer chugging competition.. Any other ideas?

           

          I hope my fiance doesn't win them all haha. 

          Wow!! Great ideas! Thanks! I didn't even think of any of this, but its a great idea!! I have many people coming who never met so this is awesome! I do not want people staying in their own little groups, I want everyone to get to know each other :)

                    All great ideas!!  I am having my wedding at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort and Spa in Jamaica this coming March and have been looking for ideas.  I have one game that is a drinking game but can include many guests. I've heard it by many name.. tippy cup, flip cup, boat races...ect. Equal size teams,  plastic cup filled with beer(or drink of choice), first person on each team starts by drinking their drink as fast as possible and then once their drink is done place the cup upside down and slightly hanging over the edge of the table, then they proceed to try and flip their cup to the upright position ( may take many tries), the next person can not start drinking their drink until the previous person has their cup upright. Continue until the last person has their cup upright... fastest team wins.   Really fun if you have 2 teams on a long table facing each other.
