An engagement party is a formal event to announce your marriage to the world, introduce your future spouse to your friends and relatives, and celebrate the joy of finding love with your dear ones. But no party can be complete without party games. Party games give an opportunity to the guests to know each other, and thereby make the party more enjoyable.
To make your party an event of a lifetime, it is important to plan it well, right from the party location and decoration, to the nature and timing of party games. This will help you properly coordinate all the activities related to the party. As far as the games are concerned, they should be simple, yet fun and relaxing. So, here are some party games that can help brighten up the ambiance.
Games to Play at an Engagement Party
The first game of a party should always give your guests an opportunity to know each other. To play an icebreaker game, divide all guests in pairs. Make each pair in such a manner that the partners are not familiar with each other. Then allow 10 to 15 minutes to each person to talk to his or her partner, after which each guest has to write down at least four or five facts about his/her partner. This game would help your guests to get better acquainted with each other.
Trivia Quiz for the Couple
Once your guests have become familiar with each other, you can start an interesting game based on the theme of the party. The game is about questioning the future bride and bridegroom about one another. It would be really fun to test how much the couple know each other by asking them questions about their favorite places, colors, movies, foods, etc. You can also include other couples in the game, as it will be really interesting to find out how much each person knows his or her partner.
Couple's Trivia Pursuits
To play this game, gather some personal information about the engaged couple, and then organize a trivia quiz contest on the basis of these information. In this game, guests should be asked different questions about the couple. The one who can give correct answers to maximum questions will win the game.
Telling a Queer Story
Telling a queer and funny story about the engaged couple might embarrass them, but guests would definitely love it. So, play a game that includes the close relatives and friends of the engaged couple, who know a lot about them and can tell peculiar and curious stories about the couple, especially those related to their childhood. This would fill the entire party with warmth and laughter.
Two Truths and One Lie
To play this game, ask each guest to make three statements, of which two should be true, while one should be a lie. The other players have to figure out which one of the three statements is a lie. The fun element in this game is that some people will come up with something really interesting to make a false statement about themselves.
Diamond Ice Carving
It is one of the most popular games to play at a party. To play this game, guests should be given some ice cubes, which they have to mold, melt, or cut into the shape of a diamond. You can also ask them to cut and shape the ice cubes to replicate the diamond worn by the bride. This will be an interesting, as well as a tough competition, and so, an equally interesting prize can be given to the winner to make the game more exciting.
A Few Other Games
Another exciting game is to ask the engaged couple to do some activities. Each guest should be allowed to ask the future bride or bridegroom to do an activity. The activities should be somewhat funny and amusing, so that they can give everyone an opportunity to laugh to their heart's content.
To play another simple game, ask your guests to make as many words as they can, by using the letters present in the first names of the engaged couple. Provide a pen and paper to each guest to write down the words. The one who comes up with the maximum number of words is the winner of this game. You can also make a variation of this game by asking your guests to make words as long as possible with the letters present in the first names of the engaged couple
