Wedding showers were at one time solely all-female events—but that’s no longer the case. Couples showers are definitely growing in popularity. At these events, both partners, no matter their gender identity, are celebrated, open gifts, and yes, play some truly fun couples wedding shower games.
These games tend to fall into one of two categories—group games or solo games. Group games require all of the guests to participate, and time is set aside during the party for the whole gang to play together. With solo games, guests participate throughout the celebration, often writing down answers to questions in an effort to win a prize at the shower’s end. Solo games are nice because they don’t take time away from other shower activities, such as opening gifts or eating.
Check out 12 of our favorite couples wedding shower games, including both solo and group games. Many of these games are printable, making them super-easy—and affordable—to set up.

Wedding Shower Bingo
At most wedding showers, the couple opens their gifts in front of all of their guests. This is fun for the guests of honor, but maybe less so for the guests. To spice things up, hand out these bingo games. Before gifts are opened, guests write out the types of gifts they think the couple will receive. As the couple opens their gifts, guests mark off the correct answers.
