Travelling has been a big no-no for the past few months with people cancelling honeymoons, family trips, and even weddings. Well, all we can say is that we're all in this together so don't worry, reach out to your friends and vent as much as you want so that you can clear your head and feel a tiny bit better.
If your bachelorette trip got cancelled cause of coronavirus, we've got some excellent ideas on how you can make the most of your time. Why not get on a group video chat and have a virtual bachelorette party and do all the things you would have done together? It'll cheer you up and give you something to look forward to as well.
From games to copious amounts of alcohol, this list has everything you need to have a rocking time right from home.
Everyone needs to be on the video call at the same time so send out e-invitations to all your ladies to be ready and be present. You can use apps on your phone to create a fun template and ask everyone to download a group video chatting app like Houseparty.
Just because you're not together doesn't mean you can't have the same food. If it's Italian that the bride likes then everyone can make pasta or pizza for themselves and you can munch on it together. It'll give you a sense of being together at the same restaurant.
Have a bachelorette party theme and make sure all the bridesmaids decorate their section of the house where they're video calling from. Of course, right now with the lockdown, everyone will have to improvise and use things lying at home as decor pieces but that's sustainable so another plus!
Every bridesmaid can pick out a picture of an item that holds a special memory with the bride so that you can all take a walk down memory lane. It'll be emotional and funny at the same time and everyone could do with reliving some happy times right now.
Even if you're going to go sit in the drawing-room, dressing up and putting on makeup just puts you in a mood to party. Pick out the cute dress and finally change out of your pyjamas so that you can look and feel pretty!
Send your bride-to-be bestie an e-gift in the form of a gift card. She can already start planning what she wants from the store and once the quarantine is over, she can go get it! Just make sure your gift card has a validity of at least 6 months.
On these video calling apps, there are games like Pictionary and Ludo that you can play together. If not, you can even play a guessing game like charades or a singing one like antakshari- going back to the good ol' days, ain't that fun!
Everyone can take turns to give a sentimental speech about friendship and talk about the bride. If you girls can't travel, you can always make it close to the best virtual bachelorette you can.
Last but certainly not the least, never let the drinks glasses go empty so keep loads of cocktail stock. By the end of the night, everyone's drunk personalities should be having a crazy wild night.
So, what are you waiting for? Get partying!
