Virtual Hen Dos

If you’re having to postpone your hen do there’s no reason why you shouldn’t still celebrate the original date – after all, so much planning has gone into it right?! This is where our guide to throwing the best virtual hen do comes into it’s own. Let us help you choose the best platform for your event, figure out how to spoil the bride and how to keep your party on track with some great ice-breaking games and a killer soundtrack.

How To Have A Hen Do In Lockdown

Our favourite ideas for how to hold an amazing virtual hen do are:
Choose the right platform for you. You can choose from lots of options. Our favourites include Zoom, House Party, Facebook Messenger, Google hangouts and Whatsapp.

Delegate a host.

Extend invites to those who maybe couldn’t make the original physical date.

Theme it up. You might have already had a theme planned so if you did, go for it! Or if you want to set a theme make sure it’s based on items that people might have around the home already or you could even make it hair or make-up themed. Bold lip anyone?

Kit your bride to be out with all the essentials. If you’d started gathering bits for your bestie to help her have the best hen do then you can still get that to her. Make sure it’s packaged safely and use a source that is also working safely to deliver that to her in time for her hen do.

Choose a couple of games to break the ice. It’s likely some of your friends will be meeting for the first time. Check out our ideas by watching the zoomcast.

Get together a party playlist of all the music your bride loves. If you don’t have one already then you can steal our Virtual Hen Do Playlist… We don’t mind.
