Groom Showers: Bar and Grill Shower

Bob Horner

this article is part of The Man Registry’s series on groom and couples showers

Overview: Each guest/couple usually brings a gift that can be used for the bar and grill. Gifts range from stocking the bar to grill accessories, to even a group gift of a new grill. This shower will put the bride and groom’s new home in great shape for being able to host the next big shindig, whether it’s Monday Night Football or a casual afternoon BBQ.

Themes: One idea is a Hawaiian theme, complete with Hawaiian shirts, tiki torches, pig roast (or just BBQ pork), deck lights, coconuts, and more.

Game: “How Do You Really Feel?” – Provide every guest at the shower with a scrap of paper and a pen. Have them write down the chore they least like to do and why in this format: “I hate _____ because _______.” Example: “I hate doing laundry because it takes all day and makes the house hot.” Have the guests turn in their chores, and then pass them back out so that no one gets their own chore. Now, have everyone read the paper they received, but replace the word “chore” with the word “sex.” The sentence then becomes, “I hate sex because it takes all day and makes the house hot.” This can be a fun game for a mature crowd and helps to keeps things pretty lively.
