Now that the weather's warmed up, it's time to take your wedding festivities outside. An alfresco cocktail hour — complete with fun lawn games! — is a great way to help break the ice among guests and get friends and family members mingling. Here are some of our favorites to incorporate into your own summertime celebration:

Croquet (Above): Invite guests to grab a mallet and get a match started on the lawn.

Giant Dice: A jumbo set of dice is perfect for bringing guests together.

High Striker:: Guests will be clamoring for their turn at wielding the mallet to see who's the strongest.

Giant Jenga: For a fun DIY project, head to the hardware store for some lumber and request them to be cut in 54 block-size pieces.

Cornhole: After the ceremony, challenge your groom to a round of this bean-bag lawn game.

Jumbo Connect Four: Little ones and grown ups alike will get a kick out of this super-sized Connect Four game.
