Finding a Halloween costume that you're actually excited about for yourself can be incredibly difficult. When you add another person to the equation, it's easily doubly complicated. Add in some criteria like "funny" and "matching" and you're in for an uphill battle at the costume store this Halloween. Lucky for you, I've already made a list of funny best couples costumes for Halloween, far in advance so your Halloween experience can be fun and not stressful. Oftentimes, trying to think of two costumes that go together and are both equally as exciting and funny is like a mental puzzle that seems impossible to solve.

Below you'll find a few hilarious couple costume ideas. Some of them you'll be able to piece together with things you already have in your home, others will require a few purchases to complete. Plus, there are few complete costume-in-a-bag type deals because we don't all have time to be costume designers. Some of us just want to go to a Halloween store with an idea and leave with a little satchel that holds the entire idea. Pick your favorite, and then pitch it to your partner. The sooner you get the ball rolling, the more fun this experience will be to share with your partner.
