COVID-19 has done a really interesting job of shaking up everyone’s routines. Everyone seems to be adjusting to life in social isolation; either working from home, picking up new hobbies, or dealing with the boredom of being stuck at home indefinitely. We’re all forced to hit “pause” on our normal day-to-day lives. This would be especially frustrating for all the engaged couples out there that have had to halt planning their weddings! We can’t imagine how much of a disappointment it must be to be excitedly planning your nuptials one day and then having to push it back the next. This also means that other celebrations like bridal showers and bachelorette parties are probably also being put on hold due to the pandemic crisis. Making the decision to postpone these events can be just as hard as making the decision to postpone your actual wedding. Although your big day is a really important occasion, it’s also important to weigh in all the factors at play here. Ultimately, you want to make a decision that keeps you and your loved ones safe! Because of this, you might be expecting to hit a few roadblocks if your bridal shower or bachelorette party is planned to be held at some point in the next few months; including, but not limited to travel restrictions. It’s a difficult situation and hosting these events in the near future might not be the most realistic (or safe) decision.  But hey: this doesn’t mean you should give up all hope for the next few months! If your heart is really set on having your bridal shower soon, it’s still a possibility; though you might have to adjust your plans to make it covid-centric. Don’t worry, we’re here to help you with that! Tips on How to Plan Your Bridal Shower During COVID-19: #1 Changing Any Travel-Centric Plans If you were planning a getaway for your bridal party before the COVID19 hit, you might be wondering whether you’re going to have to kiss those security deposits goodbye. But worry not, because there seems to be a silver lining to this particular dark cloud; many airlines, hotels, and travel companies like the good folks over at Airbnb are waiving their change and cancellation fees! This means you’ll be able to postpone any events that involve traveling without having to break the bank to pay any extra fees! #2 Plan for Fewer Guests: If you’re still set on having a bridal shower, you could consider significantly cutting your guest list to 10 people or less. We understand that this can be difficult sometimes; each person invited to the bridal shower could be an important part of your life, but at the same time it’s also worth keeping in mind that some of your guests might not choose to attend the wedding or any pre-wedding events due to the fear of flying during the pandemic. Lowering guest counts is certainly worth considering in light of the current situation. #3 Incorporate Personal Hygiene:  Cleanliness could, quite literally, save lives right now. Wash your hands, and avoid touching your face as much as possible, a tiny effort like this goes a long way in preventing the spread of COVID-19. If you’re hosting your bridal shower during the pandemic, it is extremely important to make sure you and your guests are following these simple steps and being as hygienic as possible! You could also incorporate this into your bridal games or provide sanitizers as favors to make it more fun and relevant to the current situation! #4 Consider a Virtual Bridal Shower:  For those of your guests who can’t make it to the party, a live stream of your shower is a great alternative, with cocktails and all! Technology has come quite far; it’s unbelievably easy to go live on so many social media platforms these days – this way, no one will be missing out on your celebration! #5 How About a Virtual Try-On?  It’s amazing just how innovatively a lot of bridal brands and designers have been adapting to the coronavirus pandemic; many are using services like Zoom and Facetime to connect with brides and offer at-home bridal salon experiences via services like digital appointments and online styling sessions through video chat. That’s not all: some brands have now begun to offer programs that ship wedding gowns and bridesmaid dress samples straight to the doorstep of brides that want to touch or try on the dress before buying one. You and your girlfriends can have a ton of fun trying out dresses without having to physically go to the store! #6 Shop Locally:  It’s a challenging time for local businesses right now because of the coronavirus pandemic. Because of this, it’s a good idea to go local when searching for great favors and decor for your bridal shower. It’s a win-win situation; you get a more personal planning experience and support a struggling local business at the same time!
