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:
