But before we unleash the slumber party fun, we need to give a huge “Thank you!” to Carisa from Messes to Memories for designing such fabulous printables for us! Seriously, could these be any cuter?

Spouse Sleepover Invitation

Spouse Sleepover Ideas

No list of sleepover activities would be complete without a little prep item and we’ve got just the thing! Your printable slumber party invitation will get your spouse ready for the fun to come in a super creative way that’s totally slumber party worthy. But are you ready for the ultimate cuteness factor? Check this out: Your printable invite is crafted to look (and work) similar to a sleeping bag and houses the invitation insert beautifully. How’s that for fabulous?! Assembly is easy as pie (or should we say popcorn?) and we’ll walk you through just how to do it!

How to Assemble Your Spouse Sleepover Invitation

  1. Begin by printing your Sleeping Bag Pouch and Sleeping Bag Invitation Insert on the high-quality paper of your choosing. We recommend a good cardstock for best results and ultimate date night satisfaction.
  2. Cut carefully around the individual edges, sides flaps, and tab.
  3.  Fold along the thin, white lines of the Sleeping Bag Pouch and secure main flap edges and the bottom tab with adhesive—thereby creating your perfect, pocketed pouch.
  4. Next, you’ll want to grab your Sleeping Bag Invitation insert and fill in the day and place of your slumber party for two.
  5. Slide the card into your newly formed Sleeping Bag Pouch and voila! Leave it somewhere for your honey to find and to give them a sneak peek of the night’s adventures.
  6. Color the first step of your sleepover prep done-zo (OR make sure to save these easy steps to your Date-Night Pinterest Board right now, so you can come back them soon and you’ll know exactly what to do)!

  How to Play Truth or Dare: Spouse Sleepover Edition

  1. Separate your Truth or Dare cards into two separate piles.
  2. Decide who is Player #1 and Player #2.
  3. Player #1 then asks Player #2, “Truth or dare?”
  4. If Player #2 chooses ‘Truth,’ they must select a card from the ‘Truth’ pile and answer the question- no lying allowed!
  5. If they chose ‘Dare,’ the same rule applies but with the ‘Dare’ pile. No passing, switching, or failing to comply allowed!
  6. Once they answer their question or complete their task, it’s Player #1’s turn to choose!
  7. Continue to play for as many rounds as you like, making sure to shuffle the Truth and Dare decks after each round.

Spouse Sleepover Date

Printables Designed by Carisa @ Messes to Memories Exclusively for The Dating Divas


I'm a friendly gal who's obsessed with all things marriage and Hubby-related :). When I'm not having adventures with my sweetheart and baby boy, you can find me in photographer mode, deep in a Netflix binge, or crafting! I also enjoy treasure hunting (aka. thrifting), dark chocolate, and eating as much sushi as possible.

    1. The best part about this date is that the schedule is totally customizable! You do what works best for you! Thanks for your comment, Cassie! Xoxo

  3. This was by far the most fun I’ve had in AGES! The truth or dare game was so hilarious that both of us ended up doing all the dares.

    1. Katie, thank you so much for your sweet comment- I’m SO SO glad you guys liked it! And major props to you for doing all the dares- that’s gutsy! 😀 Best!

    1. Haha! You are SO sweet! I’m a bit biased but I really do LOVE this one. 🙂 Hope you and hubby enjoy! Xoxo

  4. I love everything about this date! I love how you went through all the steps and spelled it out, made it so easy for me! Thank you thank you! XO

  5. Thank you for your date ideas. I made the husband survival kit and my husband liked it “even though he doesn’t like m&m’s” (I didn’t know) but now I am going to try the sleepover. We are separated but I am working on restoring our marriage and I can use as many good ideas I can get. Your website was a brilliant idea. Thanks again.

  6. I made little sleeping bag invitations for my son’s 8th birthday party. His birthday was in the spring, so I cut the sleeves off our worn-out winter coats and hemmed the bottom. Voila! Looked exactly like little sleeping bags!

  7. I’ve done this before! It was so much fun! In our last apartment, we had a fireplace, so I set up the air mattress and we roasted marshmallows!

  8. I am so excited to do this date! Thanks! Love the invite and the scary stories idea! All of it looks like so much fun!

  9. I love this idea! I am going to do it, but perhaps add some glow in the dark stars to the ceiling. My hubby likes star gazing when we go camping.

  10. Love this idea! My husband and I are doing it tonight. I’ve linked it to my blog.


    🙂 thanks for all the wonderful ideas! You guys are awesome!!

  11. Ok, I love this idea! The next time the kids go to the grandparents for the weekend, I’m doing this date Idea 🙂

  12. I did my first date this weekend for my husband! It was so much fun! I loved being able to love him in such a fun way. We had a lot of fun staying up late, talking, and playing games. Thanks for the great idea!

  13. Thanks for posting this fantastic idea! We tried it a few weeks ago and it was SO MUCH FUN! I just blogged about it and figured I'd be ungrateful if I didn't tell you personally how wonderful you website has been for us. Thank you!

  14. CUTE IDEA!! I love it! Now I want to suggest a fun game to you and all of your fun friends! It is called "the game of things" I don't know if you have ever played it but it is my favorite game to play with a bunch of couples for a game night! Just a suggestion in case you run out of ideas . . . but who am I kidding you are the DATING DIVAS!! 🙂

  15. Fun idea! We like to stay up after the kids are in bed, but this spices the date up 🙂 Did you get an overnight babysitter? or did your kids join you for breakfast?

  16. So fun! My hubby and I do this often, only we use our air mattress. Sometimes we even make a fort out of blankets like when we were kids! I'm going to have to add the scary stories in next time! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  17. Fantastic idea! I know my hubby would love it if I would dig out some of his old scary story books for a night like this. Thanks for the notion!

  18. Hi, I am getting married on the 23rd of this month. I am so glad my friend recommended this website because it is so informative and fun! Thank you so much for creating this site! God bless you all!

  19. This is so much fun! If your really creative and need an activity to do, build a fort over the sleeping bags.:) ~Nike

  20. What a cute simple idea without having to get a sitter. We do sleepover in the living room with our kids every Friday that we are home (which really isn't all that often actually), but just me and my spouse, how fun!! Thanks!!
