Guessing Games for Engagement Parties
1) Facts About The Couple – Put your guests to the test! Ask them about significant moments in the lives of the couple before they met each other and once they met. See if your guests know where the couple had their first date, the year they started dating, where they went to college, their first purchase together, etc. Whoever proves their knowledge of the couple wins a prize!
2) Who Are You?! – Once your guests have been put to the test, it’s time to see if the newly engaged couple knows about each other. Play your own version of the Newlywed Game to see if the couple knows about each other before they tie the know. To get your guests involved, challenge your married guests or those in a relationship to go against the couple by answering the same questions about their spouse.
3) That’s a Lie! – If your guests know each other pretty well, have everyone play an engagement party version of two truths and a lie. Ask your guests to say two true statements and one false statement about any relationship stories, wedding details or dating disasters of their own.
4) Classic Board Games – If you don’t want to create your own games or you want something easy, try playing classic board games. Get a group of people together on a team to compete for prizes. The best part about this idea is you can have games for different age groups and let guests choose which game they want to play.
5) Movie Lines – For a game that anyone can play, quiz your guests on famous movie lines, songs or titles. If you are technology savvy, put together various movie clips to show to your guests.
6) Fun Questions – Come up with some fun questions to use as conversation starters for guests that don’t know each other very well. For example, “What’s the most embarrassing story you have about the bride/groom?”
