The coronavirus pandemic may have shattered the hearts of countless brides-to-be, but that shouldn’t put a damper on throwing an epic bridal shower.
From drive-by baby showers to Zoom birthday parties, the digital age has made it easier for us to celebrate those we love. If you’d love to throw your favourite bride an unforgettable virtual bridal shower but don’t know where to start, here are a few suggestions.
Pick a theme and run with it
We’re living in unconventional times, but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep certain traditions. Sticking to details such as colour scheme and theme are all great ways to help things feel semi-normal. Why not add a splash of fun to the celebration by designing a virtual background for your guests. And don’t forget to include the link to the platform you’ll be hosting your shower on.
Plan the guest list
There’s so much flexibility when it comes to a virtual bridal shower. While traditional bridal showers require a set number of guests, a virtual celebration can literally include anyone – including friends and family based out of town. While COVID-19 has ensured that the wedding guest list has shrunk in size, this doesn’t have to be the case when going virtual. So, go big or go home!
Don’t forget the food
Food has always had a way of bringing people together, especially during a celebration. Get creative with food and drink, perhaps opting for a food delivery service that can drop off a few delectable snacks and meals to your guests. A cute picnic basket or box of yummy treats can be a great idea to ensure that guests feel connected.
Games, games, games!
Games are a must when it comes to any bridal shower, including a virtual one. Adding games to any celebration is a great way to keep things moving, and it guarantees a lively atmosphere that will have everyone feeling more connected – despite the distance. Setting virtual Bingo cards to use when the bride-to-be is opening her gifts or a fun trivia game about the couple (with prizes, of course) is an amazing way to get everyone laughing.
