The Best Engagement Party Games for an Unforgettable Night
Are you looking for some fun ways to break the ice and get everyone mingling at your engagement party? Look no further! We’ve compiled a list of the best engagement party games that are sure to make your night unforgettable.
What is an Engagement Party?
Before we dive into the games, let’s define what an engagement party is. An engagement party is a celebration thrown to commemorate a couple’s engagement. It’s a great opportunity for friends and family to come together and celebrate the couple’s upcoming nuptials.
Why Should You Plan Games for Your Engagement Party?
Engagement parties can sometimes be awkward if guests don’t know each other very well. Planning games can help break the ice and get everyone interacting. Plus, it’s a fun way to celebrate and make memories with your loved ones.
Who Am I? Game
This game is a great way for guests to get to know each other. As guests arrive, give each one a nametag with the name of a famous couple on it (e.g. Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Romeo and Juliet, etc.). The guests then have to find their “other half” and spend the evening trying to guess who they are.
Wedding Movie Charades
Get your guests in the wedding spirit with a game of wedding movie charades. Write down the names of popular wedding movies on slips of paper and put them in a hat. Split guests into teams and take turns acting out the movies while the other team tries to guess.

Mr. and Mrs. Quiz
How well do the bride and groom really know each other? Find out with a Mr. and Mrs. Quiz. Before the party, ask the couple a series of questions about each other (e.g. “What’s your partner’s favorite movie?” “What’s your partner’s biggest fear?”). During the party, ask the questions to the couple and see how many they get right.

Kiss the Bride (or Groom)
This game is a spin on the classic carnival game, “Kiss the Frog.” Blow up a picture of the bride or groom’s face and cut out a hole where their mouth is. Guests then take turns trying to “kiss the bride (or groom)” by throwing lipstick tubes or Hershey’s kisses through the hole.
He Said, She Said
Before the party, ask the bride and groom to fill out a questionnaire separately. The questionnaire should include questions like “Who said ‘I love you’ first?” and “Who is messier?” During the party, read the questions out loud and have guests guess who said what.

Who says piñatas are just for kids? Fill a piñata with wedding-themed items like wedding cake toppers, plastic rings, and mini champagne bottles. Blindfold guests and let them take turns trying to break the piñata open.
