Fun Engagement Party Games

Hosting an engagement party doesn’t just mean delicious food and drinks at a fun location. It also means having plenty of these fun engagement party games on hand too. One of the best ways to have guests interact and talk with each other is to play a few games. This will allow people who may not be acquainted with each other to open up and have a good time.

Game 1: How Well Do You Know The Couple?

What You’ll Need: Pads of paper, pens or pencils and prizes

How To Play: This trivia engagement party game is fun and all about the couple. You’ll create a list of 10 to 20 questions about either the couple individually or their relationship (like the date of their first kiss, date or dance). Have the couple answer the questions beforehand so you have a correct set of answers. You will read each question out loud and have guests write down their answers. Then you’ll call out the right answers at the end, counting one point for each question answered correctly. Whichever guest knows the couple best wins an engagement party favor.

Game 2: Picture Match

What You’ll Need: Photos of the couple, scissors and envelopes

How To Play: If you’re inviting guests from all over the place, whose only thing in common is their connection to the couple, this picture-matching party game will help jump-start the chitchat. Ask the couple for an assortment of photos of the two of them or print them from online. Make sure there are copies of these snapshots if they are prints, since they won’t be returned in one piece! Next, cut the photos in half and place each half in an envelope to be handed out randomly to guests when they arrive. Guests will have to talk to one another to find their picture’s other half—which can lead to some pretty funny mismatches along the way.

Game 3: Wedding Bingo

What You’ll Need: Homemade Bingo boards for each guest, Bingo chips, pennies or other small markers and prizes

How To Play: Who doesn’t love an old-fashioned game of Bingo? It’s a classic that everyone loves. Instead of using standard Bingo boards with letter and number combinations, create a board with fun images and phrases related to the couple’s relationship. As the Bingo caller, you can opt to play the traditional way in which anyone who gets five spaces in a row horizontally, diagonally or vertically wins, or switch it up after a few rounds to one direction only to make it a little more challenging. Whichever guest wins each round gets an engagement party favor.

Game 4: Guess the Famous Couples (20 Questions Style)

What You’ll Need: Pads of paper, pens or pencils, a bowl and prizes

How To Play: For this tricky party guessing game, have each guest write down 10 famous romantic couples (alive or dead, real or fictitious, together or divorced) and place them in a bowl. Then, you’ll split each guest into pairs. With each team going one at a time, one partner (the clue giver) picks a famous couple out of the bowl and must get their partner (the guesser) to guess the right couple. The guesser can ask up to 20 questions to determine who the mystery couple is, and the questions will be answered with either a “yes” or a “no” from the clue giver. To make things more interesting, set a timer for a minute or two for each pair’s turn, and see how many famous couples each team can get through before the time is up! Tally and score at the end, and whichever pair got the most couples right gets an engagement party favor.

Game 5: Couple’s Names

What You’ll Need: Pads of paper, pens or pencils and prizes

How To Play: Fast and festive engagement party word games like this one are ideal for Boggle and Scrabble lovers. Have each guest list all the words they can make using individual letters of the couple’s first names—depending on their name length and difficulty, add last names too, and potentially middle names and nicknames. The person who has the longest list of actual words wins an engagement party favor. Consider rewarding points for categories like the longest word, the most wedding-relevant terms and the funniest word about the couple.

These games are whole lot of fun and will definitely get your guests interacting and having fun with each other.
