Even if their wedding is scheduled for later in the year the COVID-19 outbreak may have caused to-be-weds to postpone pre-wedding events such as bridal showers and bachelorette parties. If this is the case for your bestie you may be wondering how to make them feel celebrated while maintaining social distancing. If you get those creative juices flowing, there are plenty of options that you can do right from the comfort of everyone’s living room.

Let guests know that there has been a change of plans, as well as how and where they can participate. There are several platforms that allow for virtual meetings such as Zoom, Hangouts, Houseparty and more. Just be sure that all your guests can access the event.

If attendees live in the same area – drop off party kits at their door steps so they are prepared for the evening. The same goes for the bride-to-be, have their partner surprise them with a bachelorette sash, and whatever supplies they need and get ready to paaarrttyyy!

Virtual Bachelorette Parties

Cocktail Hour

Create a custom cocktail for the bride-to-be and let each guest know what the ingredients are. Have each guest mix their Quarantini and hop into the meeting where you can chat and toast the bride to be.

For the Bride: include whatever ingredients she needs to make the cocktail as well as a fun martini glass.

Treat Yo’ Selves

If your friend loves a day at the spa, have her virtual shower or bachelorette party reflect that. Ask guests to pour a mimosa and bring their favourite face mask, nail polish or eye patches. Don’t forget your fluffy robes and sparkly slippers!

For the Bride: Include her favourite face mask, a bottle of bubbly and a gift card to Sephora (for later).

Karaoke Dance Party

While it may not be the same as going out to a club with your girls, you can host a virtual dance party. If your bachelorette plans involved a night out on the town, keep the high-energy vibe going by becoming an emcee for online karaoke. Lead the fun by introducing performers and hyping up members of the squad before they perform. Afterwards, put together an awesome playlist with your friend’s favorite tunes and get your guests moving.

For the Bride: A crown with a veil; a dirty shot glass or microphone and of course her favourite drink!

Virtual Sweat Sesh

Find a personal trainer or instructor that would be willing to host a live workout for her bachelorette party. Whether she loves kickboxing, barre or yoga, there are many fitness pros offering live workout classes online that you can do together from the judgement free zone of your living room.

For the bride: New leggings, a custom sweat band or t-shirt and a gift card to Lulu.
