Hollywood Theme Couples Shower

Do you look at pictures of you and your spouse together, and imagine that the two of you are really Fred and Ginger, Lucy and Desi, or even Fred and Wilma? Do you long to dress like Tarzan, and make your spouse dress like Jane? Now is your chance to make your dreams a reality. Have a Hollywood Theme Couples Bridal Shower!

Couples Bridal Shower Invitations
There are many fun ways to invite guests to your couples bridal shower. We have a great semi-custom caricature of a couple on the red carpet. You can have the bride and groom's photograph put in the invitation, or you can have caricatures of their faces drawn in. What a fun invite!

If you want a really special invitation, have a custom caricature of the couple-to-be drawn. You can have them drawn as their favorite Hollywood couple, dressed up in movie star duds, with the "HOLLYWOOD" sign in the background hills, the sky's the limit! Caricatures can be used not only for invitations, but for sign in boards, centerpieces, life-sized cutouts and more! A great way to pull the theme through the whole party.

Or send personalized photo ticket invitations. You pick a color, add a picture, and choose the wording.  Or choose a more traditional ticket invitation.  They are the hottest tickets in town! And they are perfect for an "event" such as this.

Let everyone know they have to come dressed as their favorite couple--past, present, or future. Some fun couples from the past have been George and Louise (Weezie) Jefferson, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton (or Eddie Fisher), Lassie and Timmy, and Mickey and Minnie. A fun couple from the future is George Jetson, and Jane his wife. The possibilities are limitless! We even have a huge list of famous couples to help you decide.

Hollywood Bridal Shower Decorations and Party Supplies
Here our our favorite Hollywood bridal shower ideas:
  • Hang a personalized Hollywood theme banner on your front door welcoming your stars (the bride and groom as well as the guests).
  • All of your “celebrity” guests deserve a fabulous entrance so be sure to have a red carpet waiting for them.
  • Red, black and metallics are the perfect color sceme for this party (balloons, tableware, streamers)
  • Latex balloon bouquets will look great around the room or on the tables. Use plastic toy awards or picture frames with photos for balloon weights.
  • Scatter star confetti on the tables.
  • If you have a blank wall, hang up a Hollywood scene setter. It will make a great photo op for your guests. Give them a basket of wearables like sunglasses, boas, and hats.
  • You can also choose to decorate in an "old-world" romantic style. Think hearts, mood lighting (candles), classical music in the background etc.
  • Make the seating cards out of Hollywood Walk of Fame stars (you could even let the couples share a star just for this occasion)!

Couples Bridal Shower games and Activities
Don't forget all of the fun games you can play at a couples bridal shower:

"I Never…" - Supply each of your guests with 20 M&M's (or any candy of your choice). The first person makes a true statement about themselves that begins with the words, "I never…". For example- If one person has never cheated on a mate, then she would say "I never cheated on a mate in my life". If the statement (without the "I never…") is true for other guests, then they must eat a piece of candy. Everyone should take at least one turn. Keep playing until it is obvious who will end up with the most candy- that is your winner!

"Who's Your Mate?" - This game is similar to the Newlywed Game. Have one person from each couple leave the room. The host/hostess tailors some planned questions to the group and to certain couples. The other half of each couple stays in the room, and answers questions about their mate/date. They're supposed to answer each question the way they think their mate/date would respond. They need to write each answer down, so that when their partner returns he/she can give their own answer to each question. Assign point values for each question that is a match. Then reverse roles of the couples for the next set of questions. The couple with the most points wins a prize. Make sure the prize is something they can share!

"The Not Yet Newlywed Game" - Contact the bride and groom before the shower, and ask them both a set of 10-20 questions: Favorite color, 1st job, and favorite musician, where he/she was first kissed, etc. Then have the couples at the shower try and answer how they think the bride and groom would answer. The couple who answers the most identical to the bride and groom-to-be is the winner.

"Whose Kiss?" - This is a really funny game! Blindfold the bride, and have each of the males in attendance kiss her on the cheek. Give each guy a number, and tell the bride to guess which number is her hubby-to-be. Give a bag of Hershey's Kisses to the person she guesses is her husband-to-be.

"Match the Couple" - On one side of a piece of paper write one person in the couple. On the other side write the other half of the couple, but make sure to mix up the names really well. Each person has to correctly match all of the couples, and the person who is the first to match the most couples correctly is the winner!
