I’ve been to couples showers before. They called it a wedding shower instead of a bridal shower. There was food, music, a few “bridal” themed treats and decorations, but nothing overly girly.

Also, if you are having a large shower, sometimes brides don’t open the gifts as it would take too long.

I’ve never been to a couples shower, so I’ll address your question about the gifts.

In my opinion I think the point of the shower is to give you gifts and I think some people would be disappointed if you didn’t open them there. I know I would, but that just may be me…

I went to a couples shower a month ago and we are also planning on doing one.

At the one I went to, we did play some games.  But they were pretty simple word games and a little newlywed game that the couple did.  I thought it was a lot of fun and much more laid back, it was fun having the boys there.

Mine is going to be more like a cookout and stuff, probably a few games but nothing to girly.  I am really looking forward to just getting a chance to talk with your guests and stuff.  I think we will open presents there, but mostly because that part always seems fun for me as a guest.

My Future Mother-In-Law is planning on having us a couples shower too, Ive never been to one before but have heard of people doing them. I think that it will be fun having my Fiance there. Its his mom giving it, so I understand why she wants her son there. My mom is giving me another shower for just me too.

I think that for opening gifts, it should be done there. But if not everyone wanted to sit and watch they wouldnt have too.. Its up to you… but Im thinking that the guys will probably all mingle together like outside or something at our shower.
