How to Build a Cornhole Board for a Wedding (and the Perfect Wedding Cake)

By the time the bride arrives, she’ll have a set of instructions on how to make her first cornhole board.

But for the first few weeks of the wedding, the bride is going to need some help, because the first day of the ceremony is a lot of fun for her.

She’ll need to know how to position her board so it’s not too high, and she’ll need a couple of tricks to help her hit her shots without losing her balance.

For the first couple of weeks of your wedding, you might not want to be too sure that you can get your wife to hit her first shot. 

In the first two weeks of her first year of marriage, you should have a few basic questions on your mind: Is this a good time to take pictures?

What’s the best time to put up a sign?

Can I get some help with this?

How long will it take?

Are there any special tips you can give her to make this a better experience?

In this post, I’m going to share a few tips on getting your wife’s first shots off, and then talk a bit about what she needs to be doing in the first six weeks of a wedding to make it fun. 

What Are the Questions to Ask in a Cornholes First Year?

If you’re planning to get your first cornholes board, you need to get some answers to a few questions before your wedding day.

What kind of board are you using?

How big is your board?

Do you have a tripod or a table?

Are you planning to make your own board?

Are the kids ready for the ceremony?

Is it important that you bring your own food?

What kind of shoes are you wearing? 

If you are planning to buy your first board, ask the following questions: Do you want to do the ceremony at home?

What will you do if your wedding is held at a private venue?

Will your family be there?

Will you be using a wedding photographer?

Do they offer you a booth?

If your wedding has a reception, is it a good idea to take the wedding cake there?

Do the cakes come in paper or ceramic?

Is your wedding party allowed to bring their own food to the ceremony, or do you need some assistance with that?

How many guests will be there at the ceremony (and whether they’ll need any assistance)? 

When should I take the first picture of my cornhole boards?

You can’t just buy a camera, and you can’t have a camera in your wedding.

What you should do is get an inexpensive camera that you don’t mind taking pictures of and then plan out how many pictures you’re going to take and how often you’ll take them.

Make sure you have at least two or three shots on the same day, because you want your wedding to look like it was planned by the photographer.

If you’re looking to get a good picture of your first year, I would take the picture of the bride, groom, and the groom’s wife in the middle of their wedding day in front of a white-on-white backdrop.

You should use the same kind of white backdrop that you use for your wedding photos.

Is the bride ready to start shooting?

When is the best place for the bride to take her first shots?

Is she ready to go through the motions?

Is the bride prepared for her first set of shots?

Do her parents know about her cornhole project?

Is her father ready to help with her cornholes?

Are any of the other guests ready to come along?

Is there a place in the venue where she can take pictures of her corn hole project?

If the bride’s parents are there, you want her to have the same expectation.

They want her as well, so they should be excited about getting her a board and a nice backdrop.

How Much Does the Bride Have to Do?

The first two days of the event should be your best days to get the first shots.

Make a list of all the things you’re doing and make sure you’ve got a list that you stick to.

You may also want to ask your parents to come with you so they can get an idea of how much the bride has to do.

Make sure your parents are in the same room, and don’t let them be in the dark.

Get a set up that’s comfortable for your bride to be in.

Set up the backdrop.

If you have your own setup, ask your mom and dad to come to your table so you can take your picture.

You’ll want to get everything out of the way before your bride goes through the process of setting up her first picture.

Make it look as though your bride is sitting down on her chair with her arms crossed.

Make the picture as clean as possible.

Put a board up to keep it in place.

The boards should be in perfect
