You’d planned for an awesome hen party in the first half of 2021; you had everything figured out – until the third lockdown was announced, putting a dampener on the entire plan.
Nonetheless, just because we’ve been put into another month or 2 of being cooped up at home, doesn’t mean your hen party can’t happen. All you need to do is look for a Plan B – The Virtual Hen Do!
Sure, this might sound a bit unconventional, but virtual hen parties are incredibly underrated, especially during this time of social distancing.
Although this might not be your ideal go-to option for a bridal shower, it is a great opportunity to indulge in your favourite activities with your bridesmaids, albeit remotely.
Ready to have a virtual yet thrilling hen do?
From fancy dress and drink codes to exciting hen games and playlists, here are our tips to plan the perfect hen do.
Decide On a Virtual Hen Do Party Theme
When it comes to bridal showers, the first thing you need to do is come up with a hen party theme that screams “YOU” and ask, or perhaps force, your entire gang to dress accordingly for the night.
Since you won’t really be stepping out of your house, it means there can’t be any excuses, and you can go as wild as you want. Be it donning something sparkly or a makeup theme like 70s blue eyeshadow or bold red lips – there are plenty of ways to get your gang into the spirit of it.
Trust us, your Zoom or Skype screens would’ve never looked as jazzy as they will on the night of your hen party.
Design & Share Some Super Sassy E-Invites
Many of us love the weightiness of card stock and the feel of letterpress, but we also know that stationary can be expensive. So, this time why not ditch the old-school way of sending invites through post and instead share digital hen do invitations with your bridesmaids?
While you’re at it, why not take your e-invite game up a notch and create some super cheeky e-invites to land in your gang’s inboxes?
For more inspiration on how to create some classy e-invites for a hen party, you could run a Google search for online articles or free design templates.
Come Up With Drink Codes
Your hen party is incomplete without having something to drink, so why not have a proper drink code suitable for the occasion?
Not only will this allow your bridesmaids to whip up their very own bevvies at home, but the best-looking cocktail can also win a prize. From personalised cocktail wine charms to sassy hen party accessories and bride squad goody bags, the options for prizes are endless.
Moreover, this is an excellent way to make your virtual hen do more exciting while also keeping your collective spirits up!
Have a Movie Night With the Gang
Thanks to Google Chrome’s Netflix Party extension, you can now watch your favourite movie(s) on Netflix remotely with your hens.
Since this extension syncs the entire video while also offering group messaging, you can easily host a movie night with your bridesmaids during your virtual hen do, even if you’re miles apart – don’t forget to grab some popcorn and snacks to munch on!
Indulge In an Activity
While it isn’t possible to participate in exhilarating hen activities like quad biking or clay pigeon shooting, you could still have fun by indulging in various indoor activities like virtual wine tasting.
Virtual wine tasting can be as fun as it is in real life and the best part is, you can more easily disguise how wasted you are by switching the camera off!
