The Shoe Game
This is a game you’ve probably seen clips of on Facebook or Snapchat. It is very popular but always so much fun! The couple sits back to back, each holding one of their partners’ shoes and one of their own shoes. Someone will read statements and questions and the couple will hold up a shoe for who they think fits the description best. It’s super fun and sure to create lots of laughs!
He Said, She Said
Very similar to the show game, but this allows the whole party to get involved! Hand everyone two cards, one said “he said” and the other one says, “she said.” Read statements and have each person hold up one of the cards to guess facts about the couple.
This one doesn’t need much explaining! Throw the lyrics up on the screen and let everyone sing their hearts out! If you are providing drinks at the shower, karaoke is sure to be even more memorable!
Wedding themed charades
Charades is always such a fun game, and making it wedding-themed makes it fit into the shower perfectly! Get some cards for the guests to choose from and write wedding related things that people can act out. This is a great way to get some laughs!
Put a Ring on It
Such a fun and unique game! Here’s how it works. At the beginning of the party, everyone is given a ring, it can even just be a candy ring. People can not say the words “groom” “bride” and “wedding.” If you say one of those and someone else catches you, they take your ring. At the end of the day, whoever has the most rings wins!
Where Were We?
Hang up multiple pictures of the couple in different places each with a number on it. Hand out a paper that has each of the numbers on it with a blank space. Guests have to guess where each of the pictures was taken!
Such a fun and unique game! Someone creates a list of questions for the couple. One partner is asked these questions before the party and is recorded answering them. The other partner gets asked them at the party in front of everyone. After the partner answers at the party they show the recording of what the other person said. This is such a fun way and is sure to start lots of conversations!
Wedding Word Scramble
Have a list of different wedding words scrambled up. Guests have to figure out each of the words and whoever gets the most correct wins!
How Well Do You Really Know Them?
Have a list of questions about both partners. Make them tricky and have questions write down their answers. You can go over the correct answers and see who knows each partner best, but the wrong answers are typically just as good! This is a funny game that is sure to make a great conversation starter!
Have Invitations say Couple’s Shower
Couple’s showers are still not very common, so it is important to specifically note on your invitation that it is a couples shower. Clarify who can go so no one is confused. Invitations can be mailed to the guests if you want to be fancy, or you can simply just send out an email!
Get Creative with Decor
Decorations are so important! They are an easy way to make any venues look ten times nicer! Make sure you make the venues into a celebratory mood! Get some bride and groom decorations, and take to Pinterest for some inspiration!
Party favors are a fun idea, but many times people don’t take them home or use them. Customized glassware is a great way to give people something to bring home that is useful, both in the future and at the party. Put the glassware at each table for people to use for their drinks. You can get relatively cheap and customized glasses and cups online. Many people put the couples’ names on it or the last name the couple will use. This is a fun touch to add to the theme and also a fun thing people can take home.
