To paraphrase Lenin, ‘There are decades when nothing happens and there are weeks when decades happen.’ These are extraordinary times and right now if feels like we’re living in an episode of Black Mirror. We’re not going to give any advice on what we should all be doing – we’ll leave that to the experts. However, where we can help however is with coronavirus or LOCKDOWN hen party ideas!!! The party doesn’t have to stop ladies. As an Irish based business we feel for any one who had they hen party planned for the coming weeks that have likely been cancelled. We have also heard from lots of ladies who were due to go to Spain on their hen weekends which also will not be happening. With social distancing and self isolation added to our daily vocabulary we wanted to share some hen party ideas for alternative ways to celebrate the bride. Read on for some inspo on lockdown hen party ideas…(thanks Covid-19 Coronavirus!)
Send her a hen book!
Ask those who were invited to the hen party to send a nice or funny message to you. Photos are good too! Prepare them in a digital book online or stick them in a hen book (like one of our gorgeous hen party books). If you’re feeling more crafty in isolation try printing the messages and putting a DIY book together.
Throw a Lockdown Hen Party
Who says the party can’t go on?! Arrange a Zoom or Houseparty call for anyone who can make it. Tell the guests to have a drink (or a few) to hand and play some games and have hen fun virtually. Whether you all do face masks, drinking games or dares the hen party can still go on! Send a box of decorations or hen party accessories to the bride to bring it to life.
Send the bride a gift
If she’s had to cancel her hen she’s probably feeling the disappointment. Surprise her with a little gift like a bride vibes candle or beauty products. Note. we’re not sure what the status of online orders / deliveries will be in the coming weeks but it’s worth considering! As a small business we are thankfully in a position to still be sending orders (safely) to our Irish customers.
If the virtual party can’t happen, a step up from the traditional henbook is video messages. Ask the hen guests to record a little message for the bride and arrange for them all to be sent to the bride for a super special Netflix and chill session.
This shall pass ladies. Hopefully in the not too distant future we’ll all be back to normal and #socialdistancing will seem like a socially distant memory. Think of some ideas for having the hen fun later on in the year. After time in isolation some adventures outdoors will be much welcomed by all so take a look at the normal hen party ideas pages for inspiration. Don’t forget to pick up some classy hen party accessories from our store when you do!
We hope this gets the creative bridesmaid juices flowing for alternative ways to celebrate the bride. If anyone has any advice or feedback on this article please share it with us. Stay safe all xxx
