Board Game Wedding Details Are A Thing

Board games — yes, the kind you might have played during family game night — are making their way into weddings. While Checkers or Bingo might seem like the sort of pastime for camp, not a wedding, there are dozens of couples who might beg to differ. From Krissy and Mickey’s wedding in Minnesota, where they scrapped the dance floor entirely for rounds of Bingo to Mandy and Drew, who used the classic board game Clue as their reception decor and wedding theme (you have to see what they named their wedding dessert!), take a look at these nine game night wedding details from our real wedding gallery below!

Mandy and Drew love Clue, so it made a ton of sense for them to decorate their entire wedding around a Clue theme. From tables named after the different rooms in the game to magnifying glass cookies, this couple had it all.
