Summer Game Time!

Thursday 22nd June 2017

So we're at the midway point of another year, and what a year it's been for Stanley Park! Our diary has been filled to bursting with incredible weddings across The Midlands, and further afield too. There's no stopping when you're one of the most popular Birmingham wedding bands!

Now anyone that has had any kind of glimpse at the life of a musician knows it involves a lot of down-time. After we've arrived at the venue, set up and sound checked, we often have quite a bit of time to kill. It's no wonder then that we've started to really embrace one of our favourite new 2017 wedding trends, lawn games!

As the fabulous blog 'The Knot' revealed in this post earlier in the year on 2017 wedding trends, outdoor games are a really popular addition to wedding receptions this year - and it also means that your favourite Midlands wedding band gets to join in too! Here's some of our favourites for you to consider for your big day...

Coconut Shy

We play a lot of festival themed weddings throughout the summer, and a little summer-fete coconut shy has become a really cool addition to these awesome wedding styles. A recent real wedding on Hitched showed one couple that really nailed this fabulous vibe. It takes you right back to school fairs in the sun, and it's no less competitive now you're all grown up!


It's like an easier version of tennis that you can comfortably play after a few cocktails - what's not to love? Wedding guests flock to the Badminton courts, and so do we! We even had a little tournament with the best man an his ushers at a wedding a few weeks back! It'll prove to be an absolute ball.


Not sure you trust all of your guests with a racquet and shuttlecock? How about swing ball instead? This one is great for all ages, adults and kids alike - so long as a certain wedding band from Birmingham isn't hogging all the bat time. Ahem...


Get the music cranked, crack out the limbo set and have everyone make an absolute fool of themselves. What's not to love? This beautiful limbo set from Uber Games is super affordable and will prove money well spent! Just think of the photos! So there you have it.

Four fabulous mid-wedding entertainment ideas from the best wedding band in The Midlands! Now you've got your lawn games sorted, you're going to need a seriously brilliant wedding band to help you make use of them!

We'd love to come challenge you to a round of swing ball at your wedding real soon, so please get in contact today

Much Love, Stanley Park
