Games for Couples Showers
Song Lyrics Icebreaker Game
Choose well known songs about love, weddings and marriage. Write down several lines from each song on a piece of paper and then cut the lyrics in half. Mix up the lyrics and place them in a bowl or basket. As guests arrive for the bridal shower have them choose a piece of paper.

For a "Honey Do" couples
shower where the couples are requested to give gifts which would help
the groom with his honey do list:
Name Tag Name
Very simple game for a couples shower. Buy large nametags and on each one write the name of an item that could be used to complete a "honey do" list. (See list below) When the guests arrive at the party give them each a nametag and tell them that from now on they will be known by that name. They must respond to that name and only call others by their nametag name. Each time they mess up and call someone by the wrong name they must place a coin (penny, nickel, dime or quarter) in a cute bank located in the center of the room for the bride and groom's "honey do" projects.
Sample names for the nametags:
Hammer, Saw, Chisel, Nut, Bolt, Plywood, Duct Tape, WD40, Ladder, Stool, Cement, ShopVac, Ratchet, Tool Belt, Pliers, Bucket ... there are so many more.
Grooms Gag Gifts
This is a fun game that will keep the party moving when the bride and groom are opening their presents. In the couples shower invitation ask that the guests bring two gifts - a gift for the bride and an inexpensive gag gift for the groom. When it is time to open the gifts the bride and groom take turns opening the presents. After the bride opens a gift addressed to her then the groom opens a gag gift. The groom's gifts will provide entertainment and laughs through the gift opening process.
Cartoon Couples Icebreaker Game
Choose cartoon couples and write their names on separate pieces of paper. Mix them up and place them in a bowl or basket by the front door. When guests arrive for the couples shower ask them to choose a piece of paper and they have to go and find their match. Some good cartoon couples are: Shaggy and Scooby, Tom and Jerry, Sponge Bob and Patrick, Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, Daisy and Donald Duck, Chip and Dale, Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
Ask the groom several questions about himself before the shower begins. Keep the answers for the game. Before the bride and groom open their presents announce that the bride will be asked questions about the groom. If she is able to answer the question correctly she can open one of the gifts. If she is wrong then the first person to shout out the correct answer gets a small prize. You may need to have a lot of questions on hand depending on how many gifts are to be opened.
