The smell of wild grass accented with fields of bluebonnets and bursts of red and orange colors calls for a party to be held outside. With the warmth finally coming out in Texas we can celebrate the weather yet again.

Find a Venue with a Sprawling Outdoor Area

Children love to run around outdoors and this prevents them from galavanting around inside all night. Simply ensure an adult is outside with the kids so nothing from the venue is harmed.

Having an outdoor space allows for an area to set up games, a potential photo booth, and even have dining outside. With an indoor space, you wind up running out of room rather quickly.

Hire a Photo Booth

A photo booth is a delightful way for people to keep a memory of the wedding that is personal to them. Many of the Texas companies bring tons of props from mustaches to 70’s eyewear. Photo booths also let everyone express their inner child and what’s more fun than that?

See if you can S’more

No matter how hot it gets there is always a place for S’mores. If your venue allows for fire then bring on the crackers, oozing chocolate and slightly burnt sugar fluff.

Bring Cornhole

By: Skips Garage on Etsy

What game is more easily learned and delightfully hard to master than Cornhole? I feel like it is the modern version of horseshoes and so it definitely has its home in the country. You can definitely ask a friend to bring the game in their truck, and after the wedding, you can bring it home and play for many, many years. Someone could also probably build this for you. You can easily paint a message or initials on the wood as well. Etsy will also create them for you.
