Top 11 Engagement Party Games

Engagement party games are a great way of breaking the ice. Engagement parties are celebrations that often bring together two different families and two different groups of people. As a result, many of the guests don’t know each other.

It can sometimes be awkward when different groups of people of varying ages come together at an engagement party. Party games help alleviate some of that discomfort by breaking the ice for your guests and having them concentrate on an activity.

The Picture Match Game

two photos of couples cut into two piecesBefore the party, find pictures of the soon-to-be bride and groom and even the engagement party guests.

You will need half the number of pictures to guests, so if you’re having 20 people over you’ll need 10 pictures total.

Cut each of the pictures in two. The two pieces don’t have to be even and you can make them as easy or as hard as you like. It all depends on where you cut the picture and what appears on each piece. Place each half into an envelope. Ask each guest to pick up an envelope on their way in.

The purpose of this game is to have guests mix and mingle as they try and find the person who has the other piece of their picture. They’re not allowed to show their own piece as they try to make a match. When time is up, (you determine how long they have throughout the party to meet) each guest writes down on a piece of paper who they think their picture partner is.

Everyone is a winner in this game because they’ve hopefully met and chatted with everyone else at the party. This is one of the better engagement party games for breaking the ice between guests.

Place all the pieces of paper in a bowl.

The object of the game is to guess the name of the couple on the pieces of paper.

Each team gets a turn, switching back and forth between the clue giver and the clue receiver. The clue giver picks one of the couples’ names out of the bowl and tries to get their teammate to guess the right answer without ever saying the names of the famous couple.

The teams have exactly sixty seconds to go through as many couples as they can. The team with the most correct guesses wins. Game play can last for as many rounds as you like.
