Shower Trends: Experiential Shower Ideas for Unique Couples 


 "A couple that celebrates together stays together." - Unknown.


Are you trying to plan a bridal shower for your best friend but not sure how to include her partner? Here are some ideas to involve them in the celebration! Before we dive into that, let's chat about why a couple's shower (also known as a wedding shower) could be what you're looking for. 


When celebrating the union of two people, a couple's shower is an excellent way to bring friends and family together to celebrate their love and commitment. Gone are traditional bridal showers, as couple's showers have become a popular way to honor the couple-to-be. But how do you plan a shower that's unique, memorable, and tailored to the couple's interests?

Why is it a great idea to celebrate the union of two people together? Here are two compelling reasons:


  1. More Inclusive: Couple's showers allow partners to celebrate their upcoming marriage together, rather than having separate events - bridal shower or groom's shower. This inclusive approach ensures that both individuals feel valued and included in the celebration.
  2. Strengthen the Relationship: Planning a shower together can be a fun and bonding experience for the couple. It allows both to work together, make decisions, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Now that we've discussed the advantages, it's time to dive into the details! Here are the areas to focus on:



Let's talk venue: Planning a wedding shower is similar to planning a bridal shower. Still, the main difference is that everyone from both genders is welcome. A wedding shower can be hosted by anyone, whether a close friend of the couple or a family member who knows them well. Due to the larger guest count, a wedding shower will require a bigger space. Usually, a bridal shower is much smaller in number. Therefore, a larger venue such as Chestnut Hill Skyspace, an outdoor garden like the Morris Arboretum or Curtis Arboretum, or even a beautiful backyard would be ideal for hosting a wedding shower.

Now let's look at the invitations: When sending out the wedding shower invitations, aim to send them out around 6-8 weeks beforehand. Choose a gender-neutral invitation that captures the essence of both individuals and complements the theme of the wedding shower (for some ideas, we've included a short list at the end). And peek at some fabulous invitation options on Paperless Post and go paperless! Now, let's look at the three areas to focus on for a wedding shower that everyone will talk about for years!

Regarding gifts, it's essential to consider both partners' tastes and preferences. One way to do this is by opting for dual-purpose gifts that cater to both partners. For instance, a personalized cutting board or a customized picture frame can be used by both individuals, making it a thoughtful and practical gift. Guests can bring gifts that reflect both partners' interests, ensuring that both are part of the registry. Consider gifting experiences like cooking classes or wine tastings they can enjoy together.




2. Entertainment: Fun Activities for the Couple

Next, let's focus on entertainment options to keep both partners engaged and entertained. Here are some unique ideas:
  • Games and Activities: Develop exciting games and activities that both partners can enjoy during the shower. Examples include trivia games, charades, or even a scavenger hunt.
  • DIY Couples Craft Station: Set up a craft station where couples can create DIY gifts for each other or their shared home. It's a great way to encourage bonding and creativity.
