How to Virtually Celebrate Bachelor + Bachelorette Parties

Written by:

Just because the physical party had to be canceled or postponed doesn’t mean the fun has to stop too. For brides and grooms quite literally everywhere, the wild nights out or boozy brunches that were supposed to serve as a bachelor or bachelorette party have been put on hold. Despite the fact that we’re all home as a means of social distancing, there are still many ways to celebrate and make the bride or groom feel special on their day. To help them out, the Hoboken Girl team has compiled a list of ideas for how to celebrate virtually {naughtiness included}.

Dress Up + Zoom

Set a theme for the night, and get dressed up! If the party was supposed to be somewhere tropical or on a beach, have everyone set their Zoom backgrounds to palm trees, put on a bathing suit or your best island-outfit, and whip up a margarita. It will get the group out of their usual sweatpants and make them feel virtually transported to a beach in an instant. 

Host a Questionnaire with the Bride/Groom

When there is a big group of people on Zoom or FaceTime, it can be difficult for everyone to get a word in. To avoid cringy “sorry, no you go” moments, create a game or questionnaire. Everyone comes up with four or five questions like “weirdest hookup in college” or “first kiss with your significant other” for the bride or groom to answer. This way, it makes the night all about them and can spark some funny conversations and memories.

Host a Virtual Game Night

There are a handful of online games and trivia apps specifically designed to be played virtually. For example, the free app Evil Apples is like a virtual Apples to Apples game. There are several raunchy cards mixed in that are sure to spark laughs throughout the night.  

Host a Chippendales Virtual Dance Party

Chippendales has pivoted its efforts during this time by offering virtual dance parties. The squad can hang out and party with the men of Chippendale, and have the option to give or receive virtual lap dances if that’s something you and your gang feel comfortable with. A 30-minute session starts at $150 for four people and goes up to $300 for 16 people. It will be a virtual night to remember.

Send Themed Cookies

Local bakeshop, For Cup Sakes, is making quarantine-themed cookies. The bach crew can all write personalized messages on the cookies for the bride or groom. For Cup Sakes cookies are completely nut-free and ship nationwide, too, so everyone can enjoy them.

Host a Zoom Karaoke Night

Get the living room stage-ready and whip out the hairbrush to use as a microphone. Zoom is the perfect set-up for karaoke. Have everyone choose one song, search the YouTubekaraoke version with lyrics, and start serenading the group. If singing isn’t a strong suit, then turn karaoke night into a lip sync battle instead.

Do a Virtual Cake Tasting

Another great way to celebrate, and incorporate some sweet treats, is to do a virtual cake tasting. If the group is local, the bride or groom can do curb-side pick-up of their cake tasting, and give one box to each bridesmaid or groomsman for a sneak peek of their wedding cake.
