Set up a cozy, private booth at the engagement party, equipped with a camera for recording. Inside the booth, provide instructions for guests to record their predictions about the couple’s future life together.

These can range from serious forecasts to light-hearted and funny guesses. After the party, compile these videos into a digital keepsake. Plan a special occasion, like a milestone anniversary, for the couple to watch these predictions.

6. Race Down the Aisle

Set up an ‘aisle’ with a start and finish line. Participants form teams, each member having a balloon. The challenge is to race down the aisle while keeping a balloon between their legs, without using their hands. If a balloon drops, the participant must go back to the start line and try again.

The first team to have all members cross the finish line with their balloons intact wins. This game often results in a lot of laughter especially if the guests have enjoyed a few drinks beforehand.

7. Ring Hunt

For the ring hunt, hide small plastic or candy rings around the party area. Give your guests a set amount of time to find as many rings as they can.

The person who finds the most rings wins a prize. To make it more challenging, include hints or riddles leading to the rings’ locations.

8. Escape Room

Before the party, set up puzzles, clues, and challenges that must be solved to ‘escape’ the room. These challenges could revolve around the couple’s love story, such as finding the date of their first kiss or the location of their first vacation together.

9. Bingo Cards

Create bingo cards with various events or actions that might occur during the party. These could include someone giving a toast, a specific song playing, or the couple sharing a kiss. Hand out the cards and some markers at the start of the party.

As events on the card occur, guests mark off the corresponding squares. The first person to get a full row, column, or diagonal shouts “Bingo!” and wins. This simple, yet fun game keeps guests engaged and observant throughout the event.

10. Chocolate Tasting Game

Organize a chocolate tasting game to add a sweet twist to your engagement party. Include different types like dark, milk, white, and flavored chocolates. Opt for varieties with unique inclusions such as nuts, fruits, or spices.

Guests will jot down their thoughts on the flavor, texture, and any guesses about the type of chocolate. Encourage them to be descriptive but also to enjoy the process of guessing. The one with the highest score wins.

Organize a cocktail creation contest where guests can unleash their inner mixologists. Set up a station with a variety of spirits, mixers, garnishes, and glassware. Each guest or team gets a turn to concoct a signature drink, possibly inspired by the couple or a theme of love and romance.

Encourage creativity in both the drink’s flavor and presentation. After everyone has created their cocktail, have a tasting round. The couple or selected judges can taste each cocktail and declare a winner based on taste, originality, and presentation. It’s a fun activity but it is also a great icebreaker.

12. Cocktail Roulette

First, gather a wide range of cocktail ingredients. This should include various spirits, mixers, fruits, herbs, and garnishes. Think outside the box to include unique items for more adventurous concoctions. Create a roulette wheel or a deck of cards featuring all the different ingredients.

Guests take turns spinning the wheel or drawing a set number of cards (usually 3-5) to determine their cocktail ingredients. It’s a fun way to taste a variety of drinks and enjoy the surprise elements of the combinations.

14. Two Truths and a Lie

This classic game starts with each guest presenting three statements about themselves: two truths and one lie. The other guests then guess which statement is the lie.

This version can be tailored to focus on romantic or relationship-themed statements. It’s a great way for guests to learn more about each other and often leads to surprising revelations and lots of laughter.

15. Battle of the Sexes

Divide your guests into two teams based on gender – males vs females. Organize a series of challenges or trivia questions related to the opposite gender, relationships, or the couple.

This game often leads to hilarious misunderstandings and stereotypes about the opposite sex, providing a lot of entertainment and laughter.

16. Dance Off

A dance off is perfect for a lively party. Couples or individual guests take turns showing off their dance moves on the dance floor.

You can have different categories, such as romantic dance, freestyle, or even specific dance styles. A panel of judges – or all the guests – can vote on the best dancers.
