Wedding shower for couples: play this movie-matching shower game! #Parties & Showers#games#printables#wedding shower Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jun 11 2015) Ariel arielmstallings Related Post Who else thinks "sexy" wedding shower games are strange? I'm not expecting a wedding shower this time around, and as a consequence, I am spared the bizarre rounds of public humiliation that pass on... Read more Sometimes wedding shower games can tend toward the cloying and even downright embarrassing. Even if you're not planning a wedding shower for a couple, the activities at showers can feel silly — and if non-frilly types are attending… you probably don't want to play girly games like OMG PURSE RAID or THE LINGERIE GAME TEE HEE HEE. For those of you looking for a non-embarrassing (but still kinda romantic) wedding shower activity, we have a great wedding shower game from a reader named Catherine: I made a movie-quote matching quiz for my cousin's wedding shower. It was matching famous romantic film titles with quotes from the film! It was clearly non-gendered, and not all personal and awkward for the couple but still has a romantic twist. I also included old movies to appeal to the grannies, and newer movies like some '90s stuff, and then The Great Gatsby for the younger folk. It worked out really well! The prize was a DVD of Casablanca, which cost me $12 at Amazon. The joy of this movie-matching game is that you can totally customize it to your guests! Catherine provided a free printable version of the quotes and movies that she used, but you can edit the movies and quotes to be whatever you want… geeky movies? Horror movies? Even your favorite TV shows! Download this wedding shower for couples game: Movie-Matching Quiz! Related Post Can we talk about consensual bridal showers?

PREVIOUS Why you should NEVER dry clean your wedding dress (or any wedding garments) right before your wedding NEXT Tons of theater glamour, vintage style, and desserts at Lindsey & Jesse's wedding Show/Hide comments [ 8 ] I wish I had seen this before my brother got married! It was so hard to find things we could adapt for a same-sex wedding. Sharing this idea with everyone I know!! Reply Cool, I'm glad you like the idea, and the concept is super adaptable to any group of people 🙂 Reply We did exactly this at my bridal shower and it was an absolute blast! Everyone had fun with it, and the best part is it can be completely versatile to fit what you and your guests know. We had a lord of the rings quote in our batch. Reply Awesome! I'd love to have a nerdier version of this. The group I made it for was multi generational and pretty traditional as well, so I tried to find quotes that would fit that, but I'll admit I didn't enjoy leaving out the great loves like Arwen and Aragorn and Han and Leia 😉 Reply Ummmm…. you got an answer sheet to go with that game? I wish I had seen this before my own shower, but I'll have plenty coming up in the next few years! Reply Hello, I don't have an official answer sheet, but I'll just list it here!

Too bad I just had my co-ed shower. I asked for no games, mostly because I hate the ho ones key. Of course one of my bridemaids went ahead anyways because she loves them. The toilet paper dress game was a hit, and the guys loved playing it too! She also put out the purse game and a few other papers on the tables and only those who wanted to participated. She also did a tricky tray style lottery to win gift baskets, with different themes. People seemed to like that too.
