25 entertaining engagement party games

Planning an engagement party is kind of like crafting the perfect playlist; you want the hits, but also some unexpected gems. It's all about the flow, baby. From sassy classics like the Newlywed Game to new favorites like customized Couple's Bingo, this list will keep your guests entertained, laughing, and maybe a tad jealous they didn't think of these first. So let’s get this party from engaged to en-fuego!

1. The newlywed game: relive the first dates

Ah, The Newlywed Game—oldie but a goldie. This game tests how well the couple knows each other and brings up hilarious memories.

How to play:

Fire off some juicy questions about each other while the engaged couple is separated. Then let them spill the tea about their answers, all while trying to match each other’s responses.

2. Couple's bingo: milestones and mishaps

Because nothing says "I love you" like shouting "Bingo!" in front of all your friends and family.

How to play:

With a trusty bingo card generator, create cards based on the couple’s milestones, quirks, or even embarrassing moments. Hand them out and let the game begin!

How to play:

Write down these memorable one-liners on cards and let the guests guess who said what.

4. Engagement ring toss: diamonds in the rough

Because the only thing better than receiving a diamond ring is tossing one onto a bottle, obviously.

6. Charade your love: act it out, lovebirds

The dramatic arts meet romance in a game where love is definitely not a battlefield.

The couple sits back-to-back, each holding one of their own and one of their partner's shoes. Questions get asked, shoes get raised, laughs ensue.

8. Pictionary: love doodles

Doodle your way into your guests' hearts with love-themed Pictionary.

How to play:

Top Tip: If you want to shake things up, ditch the words for emojis or doodles that people have to guess.

9. Wedding vow mad libs: vow to laugh

Wedding vows are serious, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some irreverent fun with them!

How to play:

Create a Mad Libs-style vow sheet. Have guests fill them out and read them aloud. Prepare for tears—of laughter!

A college classic meets matrimonial merriment in "Beer Pong: Love Edition." Navigate your way through a game of beer pong, but with each cup sunk, a question or challenge about the couple awaits.

How to play:

Set up a regular beer pong table, but write love-related questions or challenges under each cup. When a ball lands in a cup, the person who tossed it must answer the question or complete the challenge.

Top Tip: For added fun, include a couple of "wildcard" cups that offer particularly daring challenges or juicy questions.

How to Play:

Create a playlist of love songs across various genres and decades. Guests sign up to sing a song of their choice or can be randomly assigned one. After each performance, the audience rates it on a scale of 1 to 10. The person with the highest score wins a prize.

Use our bingo card generator to create bingo cards that are sprinkled with love-themed words, song titles, or even movie scenes that depict the essence of love. Distribute the cards among the guests, and let the love-fueled bingo-ing commence!
