It is becoming more popular to host a bridal shower that guys can participate in. Rather than host the traditional, female-only party, brides are opting to throw a couples shower. So, how do you host a shower where male attendees can have a blast? Here are some gender-friendly party ideas that everyone will love.
Host a BBQ
Who doesn’t love a good barbecue? When planning the shower, look for a venue that offers classic favorites like corn on the cob and barbeque chicken wings. Blast summer-themed music and pour adult beverages for all. This couples shower is sure to please everyone in attendance.
Give the Shower a Theme
Themed showers are a great way to ensure fun for all. Treat guests like they are celebrities with an Oscar-themed shower. You can create score sheets and give out prizes to the guests. Decorate with silver balloons and a disco ball, and pass around champagne cocktails. For a zestier celebration, throw a fiesta. Serve tortillas and margaritas, and have guests break a piñata. To blast guests into the past, throw a prom-themed party. Have guests wear prom attire, and then crown a king and queen.
Offer a Fun Activity
Games are a classic activity at bridal showers, and for a couples shower, it’s important to find an activity that the guests of both the bride and groom will enjoy. Some event venues offer fun games that everyone can play, like WhirlyBall. This is a fun activity that combines lacrosse, hockey, and basketball with bumper cars.
