The official Grim Reaper of 2020 weddings is COVID-19. Many couples are postponing and even cancelling their weddings and all kinds of pre-wedding festivities. If you want to combat the situation and not to postpone at least some pre-wedding parties, you can have them virtually! Bride tribes across the globe are hopping on programs like Zoom and FaceTime to show their bride-to-be some major love! No one can tell a group of besties that they can’t pop some bubbly and celebrate their bride. How to embrace a virtual bachelorette? Let’s see.
Make A Plan And Send Invites
Though virtual, it’s still a party, and it requires some planning. Figure out who will be ‘hosting’ the virtual bach bash, and who will be doing the bulk of the coordinating. As the party host, you can put together an email with all your planning thoughts and send it to the other attendees. Decide whether the party will be a surprise and choose a theme!
Once you’ve landed on a theme, check out some fun invites that match your vibe! Send out an invite to all bachelorette party attendees with all the Zoom details, and any pre-party preparations needed for the day to perhaps surprise the bride-to-be.
Mandating a dress code is a fun way to make things special, so have all the ladies wear the same color or require an 80’s hairstyle – stick to your party theme and style!
Mail Gifts And Cards (in advance)
Because you can’t bring along your gifts and surprises, plan to mail or ship your gifts in advance. Choose a fun on-theme gift like a box of popular self-care items, or trendy wine glasses, add some tees with ‘Bride Tribe’ or other words, give your gals some chocolate or wine that they can drink or eat during the party. Whether you decide to send gifts, cards or both – try coordinating their arrival with the guest of honor’s partner. Perhaps all the surprises can be kept secret before the big, virtual party begins.
Mix Up Cocktails And Games
Things can really take off after a relaxing start with cocktails and fun games! The ‘evening’ portion of the virtual bachelorette party could have its mood set with a custom playlist of the bride-to-be’s favorite songs: singing, dancing and cocktails encouraged!
You could kick off the celebration with mimosas and manicures. Every attendee brings along her favorite nail polish color and pours some bubbly. Or maybe even begin the festivities with a zen group yoga class.
