#1 Ring Hunt
Set your party guests off on a ring hunt by hiding plastic rings throughout the party. The person who finds the most rings, wins! Make sure you prepare small gifts for the winners!
#2 The Nearly Wed Game
Do the couples in attendance know each other very well? Let’s find out by playing The Newly Wed Game. The rules are simple, give each of them a mini dry-erase board and ask them questions like:
Then read their answers and see how close the real answer is to their spouse's guess. It's the couple who gets the most right answers that wins!
#3 Memory Lane
Ask guests to write one memory of the couple on a piece of paper and then mix all the pieces of paper in the box. Make the couple read the memories out loud and guess whose memory it is!
#4 The Shoe Game
This well-known game will test the couple’s knowledge about each other. The engaged couple must sit back-to-back. Each holds one of their own shoes in one hand and one of their partner's shoes in the other. Next, the designated host will ask questions such as, "Who made the first move?" or "Who dresses better?" The bride and groom will answer each question by raising either their own shoe or their partner's shoe, without seeing the other's answer.

An engagement party takes some time and nerves to prepare. Tagvenue wants to ease the process for you - as much as possible! That's why we have shortlisted a few tricks to keep in mind while throwing an engagement party:
Top tips and tricks for throwing the perfect engagement party:
There are many options for you to choose from and in order to make your engagement party as memorable as possible. You can choose to celebrate in a restaurant with a delicious menu, a bar with tasty cocktails or a pub with traditional pub food. If you’re organising your party in the warmer season, you can choose to book a cruise or a terrace to enjoy the sun to the fullest!
Weddings are usually quite pricey, so saving a bit of money on your engagement party could come in handy. Picking a venue with a minimum spend can end up cheaper than other options since you don’t actually have to pay for the space you’re hiring. Some spaces allow you to bring in your own alcohol, which can also help you stay within your budget.
When planning any event, it helps to have several suitable dates in mind, so you don’t miss out on your favourite venue just because it is already booked. London is a popular location for weddings so booking a weekend wedding may be difficult. If you choose a venue in a more swanky district such as Knightsbridge or Chelsea or in a famous historical venue, you can expect quite high prices. That is why many couples chose among the city’s minimum spend venues for their London wedding. These venues will allow you to use their facilities while simply needing to meet a minimum expenditure during your event. With these types of venues, you can choose among fabulous venues from Shoreditch to London Bridge and not break your budget.
Speeches are definitely an important part of an engagement party. It is also time for toasts, love stories, some dancing and fun games! Share the joy with loved ones and friends.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
