Bachelorette parties are a great excuse for the bride and her bridesmaids to let loose and celebrate before the big day. Unfortunately, now that we’re stuck in a pandemic, there are a lot of safety factors to consider. If there’s one skill that people generally have adopted throughout the pandemic, it’s learning how to get creative with event planning while keeping everyone’s health and safety in mind. Stuck on how to keep your bachelorette party COVID-free? Don't worry! It's not impossible to host a bachelorette party during covid. We've compiled a guide to help you keep yours safe and COVID-free.
 
Host a Virtual Bachelorette Party
 
Think about the activities people typically do during a bachelorette party: drinking, dancing, playing fun bridal games. What’s something all of these things have in common? You can do them anywhere.
 
By hosting a virtual bachelorette party, you’re saving yourself a lot of COVID-related stress. Luckily, it’s very easy to make your virtual bachelorette party entertaining for all of your guests. There are many different ways to take your virtual bachelorette party to the next level, and we’ve introduced some of them below.
 
-Send your attendees a “party pack” beforehand. This could include a t-shirt, matching wine glasses, a bottle of champagne and other fun goodies for your bridesmaids.
-Implement a dress code for all attendees (for example, a monochromatic color scheme.)
-Introduce games or competitions. Some ideas include a household scavenger hunt, a cooking competition, karaoke sing-off or a trivia game centered around the bride.
 
If You Want to Have an In-Person Bachelorette Party
 
The most important thing you’ll have to address is making sure you’re following safety guidelines. In New York specifically, the number of people allowed is large enough that you could still safely host a bachelorette party. Just make sure you check your state’s guidelines for up-to-date information about indoor gatherings. 
 
If you wanted to keep your party in-person but provide your guests a safer alternative to an indoor party, you could host your party outdoors. Depending on the weather, this could be challenging. Nonetheless, you still can engage in all of the same fun activities you would if you were indoors. You could book an outdoor space for this occasion, or even have it in the comfort of your backyard. If you host the big night in your backyard, you can do it up with some string lights, a tent, or whatever best suits your vibe for the occasion. 
 
However, if you really wanted to go all-out, you could plan a COVID-safe retreat with your bridal party somewhere secluded. This could include something like a spa retreat or an Airbnb rental. Just ensure that your bridal party gets tested beforehand and they stay safe throughout the trip to prevent any unnecessary health scares.
 
Don't Let COVID-19 Ruin Your Big Day
 
You don't want to miss out on the fun tradition of having a bachelorette party, especially because of a pandemic that’s out of your control. Luckily, you can take back the control by being informed about any necessary safety precautions, and then adjusting your plans accordingly. It'll take some brainpower, as well as getting your creative juices flowing, but the hard work will be worth it. Even in a global pandemic, you deserve to celebrate your big day.
