***Since rules vary throughout Australia, find out what your state allows. Every state has a slightly different way of enforcing physical distancing so make sure to include that when planning***
How Does A Virtual Hen’s Night Work?
First, you need to conspire with someone the bride lives with.
If this does not apply to your case, you can sleep over the bride’s place the day before the bachelorette party takes place.
Not everyone will be there at the party but 1-2 people should be present to organise all the details.
Next, agree on a 1. date, 2. time and 3. which platform you will be using to log in and see each other online.
The easiest and most-used options include: Zoom, Skype, and Google Hangouts. Make sure to collect their email addresses or user IDs so you can invite everyone ahead of time.
Have the ladies will log into the virtual hen’s night at a time you all agreed on – preferably a time when you, the bride and the ladies can have some alone time at their own homes. Because who goes to hen’s night with kids and hubbies tagging along, right?
The person (or people) organising the hen’s night should be the one to send the invitations at least a week before the event. It should include the ff information:
- The theme
- What platform to use
- Instructions on how and where to send their gifts
You can create a group message on Facebook or any other social media platform and add the girls there. If you want to be fancier, you can create an invitation card and send it through message or email. You can also opt to set up a Facebook event or you can check out these online programs that send out beautiful invites: Paperless Post, Minted and Punchbowl.
What To Wear (Trendy Themes):
We can’t really go out much these days and even if we can, we can’t always wear our fancy clothes, right? Well then make this as an excuse! Not only should we do this for the bride to be, but we should also take it as some me time. Dress up, put on some makeup, and fix your hair.
