HOW TO HOST A VIRTUAL HEN/STAG PARTY
With all of us adjusting to this very strange period of social distancing and so many of you having to postpone or cancel hen and stag dos, we’re on the lookout for new ways to still celebrate. So to all of our gorgeous couples, forward this onto your besties and get your iphones, Ipads or laptops at the ready for an ultimate virtual party!
Aren’t we all thankful for technology whilst we are in lockdown? First things first; choose the best video-chatting platform and invite your guests. There are so many platforms to virtually chat, but we recommend and have been using Zoom, Skype and Google hangout, (anything else was a little too complicated for us Iscoyd technophobes)
GET DRESSED UP / THEME
As much as we are loving our quarantine comfy clothes & PJ’s, it’s time to get glammed up! We know every women out there has a bit of sparkle in their wardrobe and chaps, pop on a nice shirt, or maybe those ‘besties’ could pop a nice outfit of choice in the post for you to wear?
We would be very happy to help out and share some costume ideas!
If you’re keen on playing some tunes, get a playlist together, it’s a great way to set the mood. You could maybe even make part of the online party a silent disco? (You should play some games first though!)
GAMES (organised fun)
Charlie, our Senior Events Managers is chief game organiser at Iscoyd and has listed a few games you can try at home:
The gorgeous Abi was meant to celebrate her hen in Budapest, which due to this horrible bug was cancelled. Abi’s girls put on a fun night full of laughter and tears at home instead!
“Firstly they all introduced themselves as not everyone knew each other, said how long we had known each other, how we met and one thing they loved about me (I was crying by the second one)
They asked me 10 questions about Dave and if I got it wrong, I had to either do a shot or down my drink 🍸”
Annabelle also was meant to celebrate in Budapest for her hen party, instead her girls dropped off a surprise bag of goodies and put on a night she’d never forget, although, we hear Annabelle was feeling a little ropey the following day so we’re not sure how much of it she does remember!
“ I got really drunk after playing virtual beer pong and it’s all a blur from then onwards 😂🙈”
Don’t forget it doesn’t need to be a boozy night, nursing a lockdown hangover for days on end. Why not support local businesses and contact a flower shop near you and arrange a virtual flower arranging class?
For all those fitness junkies out there, you can still break a sweat together. There are plenty of online virtual workouts.
Maybe you fancy a low key DIY pamper night, with a movie and dipped chocolates? Netflix Party is a new way to watch with your friends online, synchronizing video playback as well as adding group chat features. Don’t let anyone forget the popcorn!
We are sorry that your traditional hen or stag party is off the cards for now. The coronavirus pandemic has hit us all hard, but where there’s a will, there is a way and it will NOT stop our fun!
It won’t be long before we are all back together again, clinking those glasses and celebrating the way we all love to. How special will that feel?
Lots of Iscoyd Love!!
