Thrifty DIY Wedding, Part 12: Entertainment
The entertainment was our main focus on the celebration (after the food, of course). We know that great company is more than enough to have a good time at a wedding, but we wanted to give people just a little bit more to create some memorable moments.
If you know Patrick and me, you know that we have always been big kids. There's no real growing up in the near future, socially anyway! So it was only fitting that we had games at our wedding, instead of the conventional dancing. We had corn hole set, hula hoops, wiffle ball, and even piñatas! The park setting was perfect for everything, plenty of room for all the activities.
Think games are just for kids? Think again! They were all over it! At one point, a basketball game started because one guest happened to have a ball in his trunk. You'd be surprised how much adults could enjoy themselves when they can relax and just be a kid again.

- We bought four hula hoops, each $1 at any dollar store.
- We bought the SpongeBob and Dora the Explorer piñatas for $19.99 each. Wondering why they are dressed as bride and groom? That was a small DIY project I gave myself the day before the wedding. I used black and white tissue paper and dressed them for the special day!
- We purchase the corn hole set $80, but there are companies that rent them out. If you are in the southern California area, check out Beach Cities Bag Toss.
- Wiffle Ball sets are super affordable! $6 for a set, and can always purchase additional balls for another $6.
Total for entertainment: $130
The best part? We get to keep all the toys!
