When Bustle Magazine writer, Griffin Wynne, asked us how to plan a bachelorette party during a pandemic, we had loads of creative ideas. Ok, so maybe it feels like it’s the apocalypse just a little bit. If we’re going to go out, we’re going to go out having a great time (while maintaining social distancing and washing our damn hands!)
Check out the full story here on Bustle.com and our excerpt below:
While getting your girls together for a Google Hangout may not have been part of your original plans, Mandy Connor, owner and lead planner of Hummingbird Bridal & Events, shares that an online bachelorette party can create fun and unique memories.
“It’s all about how you embrace it,” Connor tells Bustle. “There are plenty of opportunities for creativity here, you just have to think outside the box.”
From shipping your friends DIY cocktail kits (from local Boston business, Lux Box!) to getting matching pajamas and nostalgic photo albums for everyone in the bridal party, Connor shares that adding IRL props to your virtual party can make all the difference. Additionally, creating a custom Zoom background or Snapchat filter, or making a collaborative playlist on Spotify that everyone can add special and personal songs to for a late-night dance party.
“The ideas that the bride and I came up with were so special; it really eased the pain of not being together,” Connor says.
There are LOADS of ways to celebrate with your crew when you are far apart. Now is the time to jump on Zoom or FaceTime and to share those amazing memories as you plan for the days ahead when we can all be together again!
