HOW TO HOST A VIRTUAL BRIDAL SHOWER THAT LEAVES YOUR BRIDE-TO-BE BESTIE FEELING LOVED
Even though COVID-19 has shattered the hearts of brides-to-be all over the world, there is absolutely no reason not to make sure the bride is showered with love.
There are so many events that surround the build-up to a wedding and, truth be told, these are just as important as memorable as the big day itself!
Self-isolation and social distancing have forced such creativity when it comes to how we celebrate- from drive by birthdays, to kid’s Zoom parties. Thanks to the digital age our options to celebrate with loved ones, near or far, are endless.
So, if you’re looking to shower some love on a bride-to-be, here are our tips and tricks on how to host a virtual bridal shower or bachelorette party!
6 TIPS FOR HOSTING A VIRTUAL BRIDAL SHOWER OR BACHELORETTE PARTY
TIP ONE: Round up the bridal crew to start planning!
Pick a date and time that suits everyone. Be sure to choose a theme that will translate well into a virtual bridal shower celebration – and don’t forget the dress code! You might be venturing into your living rooms, but everyone should still attend in their ultimate bachelorette glam!
TIP 2: Create a digital invitation
Get creative! Use a free online design template from sites like Canva to create a cheerful, fun invitation that ensures that your guests do not want to miss out!!
TIP 3: PLAN THE ENTERTAINMENT!
Not everyone will know each other so planning a virtual icebreaker is a great way to get everyone warmed up! Have everyone share their favourite memory of your girl to get the celebration started. Following this, make sure that you have pre-planned your virtual bachelorette games like ‘Drink If….’ and ‘How well do you know the bride’-both of these translate well on Zoom.
TIP 4: PREPARE GOODIES, PROPS & PHOTO OPS!
To help everyone get in the mood, Bride&co have some of the cutest bachelorette and bride-to-be items that will set the scene perfectly! From bridal party sashes to photobooth props, find the perfect accessory to your virtual screen grab photo ops!
TIP 5: GATHER YOUR GIFTS & GAMES
Get the girls to gather a few gifts and deliver them to your bride-to-be-bestie before her big bachelorette day. Number your gifts so she knows what to open at what stage of the call- this helps to keep the excitement and engagement levels up, leaving your girl showered in love and spoils! Other fun ideas include getting the bride-to-be a sash that she has to wear the entire time, or delivering a personalised champagne glass and a bottle of champagne for her to sip on throughout the party
TIP 6: HAVE FUN!
The circumstances may not be ideal but making the most of the bachelorette crew and party will still mean everything to your bride-to-be bestie!
