Wedding season is here in full swing. But with COVID-19 looming on our heads, it’s difficult to have a big, fat desi wedding. The pandemic is one of the reasons why many people are opting for virtual gatherings, at least for some pre-wedding rituals. And one of the easiest pre-wedding functions to pull off virtually is a bachelorette. Sceptical about how you’ll plan it all for your BFF and still manage to have as much fun as in a regular bachelorette? Don’t worry, here’s how you can pull off an epic virtual bachelorette party.
1. Plan a theme
First thing first, you need to know what kind of aesthetic your BFF likes. Accordingly, you can plan your theme for the bachelorette party. Later, after your list of attendees is final, send some theme-appropriate decoration to everyone. This will make sure that the background looks the same for everyone. Perfect for the gram! You can also go all out and send some bride specific goodies to your BFF.
2. Send your e-vites on time
After deciding the theme, the next thing is to send e-vites for your BFF’s virtual bachelorette party. Make sure it mentions the time, the platform you are using, and the theme of the event. Attach links to the room and renew it, if needed. You can send these invites separately or you can create a WhatsApp group.
3. Dress up
Another thing that you need to do is dress up for this virtual party. You might be rolling your eyes, but this is what 2020 is all about, darling. Dress up, stay home, and make sure everyone dresses up according to the theme as well.
4. Order similar food
Food is one thing that will connect you all during this virtual bachelorette party. Make sure everyone has the same kind of food, whether it’s home-delivered or home-cooked. You can also order the bride’s favourite dish which will make her super happy. As for drinks, you can send a cute hamper to your BFF’s house consisting of her favourite drinks, and the rest of you can BYOB.
5. Virtual games
Whether it’s an offline party or a virtual party, games are really important. Some of the classic games that can easily be played virtually are Never Have I Ever, Charades, Heads Up, and 20 Questions. Pick one or play all of them gradually.
6. Invite an artist
It is difficult to keep the vibe going after a few minutes, especially during a virtual bachelorette party. So, invite an artist to lift your spirits. You can call a musician or a stand-up comedian depending on the vibe you want. This will not only brighten up the bride’s mood but will also give you something to talk about for months to come.
7. Give a heartfelt speech
This is the part where it gets sappy. Prepare some heartfelt speeches for the bride. Write a poem or a song, if that’s what your relationship is like. Every person can talk about some good memories with the bride. This doesn’t have to be planned too much and can be done spontaneously, especially if everyone has had their fair share of alcohol.
8. Handmade gifts
Finally, enjoy these valuable moments before your BFF’s wedding. That’s a whole new set of memories you get to make together.
