With the world in the venomous grip of the awful novel coronavirus, COVID-19 events of all kinds have been canceled from concerts to major sporting events and even more personal family occasions such as parties, birthdays, and even weddings.
If you had a wedding planner for this spring or summer, then you are almost certainly going to face the prospect of delay, cancellation, or a much-reduced service.
But this doesn’t necessarily mean you need to miss out on all of the fun, here are some ideas on how to host a bachelor or bachelorette party during the lockdown.
Get Supplies In
You will not necessarily be able to just nip to the shops, so it’s key to plan the event well in advance. You will need to get drinks, food, and even what you are going to wear delivered in advance. This can easily be done online these days. Still, it is wise to remember that various delivery networks and production lines may have been disrupted, and its possible items may take considerably longer than usual.
Do it Over Video Conferencing.
The next thing to think about will be how you are going to do it practically, and the most straightforward answer is to use video conferencing. You will no doubt have heard of Zoom, which is everyone’s go-to, and it works exceptionally well.
One thing to be aware of is to ensure you pay for the premium version as you can run out of call time if you rely on the free edition, and you don’t want to be mucking about with payments mid-way through the event.
Get Clothing Organized
One of the hallmarks of bachelor and bachelorette events is the use of group T-shirts complete with witty slogans and nicknames. We are all familiar with the reveling groups wearing matching outfits and the obligatory bride and groom shirts identifying the guilty parties! Well, don’t miss out on this fun, order them up and keep it going.
The common types of entertainment associated with these parties include drinking games, dares, and even visits to a strip club or stripper event. There is no need to forgo any of this, even though we are doing everything online.
There are so many options, and we can even hire a virtual stripper or have a virtual stripper party, this is actually really cool as we can get strippers from absolutely anywhere in the world rather than just our local area.
There are even virtual nightclubs on the go, and you can pay the entry fee and experience the closest thing to a real club available. There are countless other options for entertainment that can be done online, from virtual casinos to pub quizzes.
We can even have video game tournaments, such as Mario Kart or Call of Duty to ramp up the competitive nature of the night and add a bit of spice.
We know none of this will completely replace the real thing, but it’s important to keep our spirits up and even have one of these events as a precursor to the real thing to have a bit of safe fun in the meantime.
