A bachelorette going digital isn’t a dream scenario for the bride-to-be, but it’s still possible to make her feel special. Wondering should the party have a theme and should you play games? Here’s how to plan a virtual bachelorette party.
Make a group chat or set up a group event on Facebook – so everyone involved can interact with each other and see the event details.
Spoil the bride-to-be before the party by dropping off or mailing gifts to her house. You can send props (veils, crowns, sashes), self-care items (bath salts, face masks) or gifts for her to open during the bachelorette party. You can also send non-labeled gifts and ask her to guess who sent each gift.
A virtual bachelorette party should have a host, who’ll ensure that event runs smoothly. Large video calls can sometimes feel hectic, so it’s important to have one person in charge to make sure everyone gets a chance to speak. This can be one of the bridesmaids or a maid of honor. Make and send the itinerary before the party – so everyone knows how the event will flow.
Theme will liven up the party – it can be a TV show, movie, color or a trend. The theme can inform the catering, attire and props. If you can’t get custom-made apparel created and shipped on time, simply color-coordinate the outfits. You can choose the favorite color of the bride-to-be or use the same color palette as the bridesmaid’s dresses.
Have all guests wine and dine the same thing. You can also send a recipe for signature cocktail to all guests and ask them to prepare it for the party.
Have the nearest and dearest friends and family members of the bride-to-be record video messages. Compile them into a film and watch it together during the bachelorette party. The movie will be a priceless keepsake.
Add excitement to the virtual party with an online psychic or a tarot reader. Play remote lip sync battle or one of the most popular bachelorette games: Porn or polish, Dirty would she rather, Dirty little secrets, Dirty minds.
