8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower

By Leena Kim, Town and Country

The coronavirus pandemic is not slowing anytime soon, meaning the social gatherings we've put off since March (with the hope that they could resume by summer and fall) will have to be postponed again. But here's a better idea: why not instead re-imagine what these occasions look like. Weddings, galas, birthday parties, and more, have all gone digital over the last few months and as we collectively better adjust to the new normal, virtual gatherings have started to become a little less awkward and a little more—dare we say it?—natural. The crisis hasn't deterred couples from getting engaged and planning their futures (nor should it!) so with that in mind, here are T&C's top ideas for throwing a virtual wedding shower itinerary for one last hurrah before that impending Zoom wedding.

Box It Out

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower

Several boutique fitness brands have finessed their virtual class offerings for a COVID world. Taking an online boxing class (we're partial to Shadowbox) with your closest friends checks all the boxes: a stress-relieving workout and quality time with loved ones, all from the safe (and germ-free) confines of your living room. Plus, a pair of sleek boxing gloves makes a great party favor.

Make Cocktails

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Send a cocktail ingredient kit and an elegantly printed recipe card (we have a few recipe ideas here) ahead of time to your friends so you can all partake in a mixology session over Zoom. Or go a step further and personalize each kit depending on each guest's favorite cocktail.

Make it a Pizza Night

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Homemade pizza-making is on a long list of culinary hobbies many have adopted during pandemic quarantine. For a foolproof alternative to turning everyone into a reluctant pizza chef, send them frozen versions from ever-popular Roberta's via Goldbelly. This way, you and your guests can spend less time cooking and assembling, and more time eating delicious pizza from a Brooklyn institution.

Host a Virtual Book Club

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Turn an intimate virtual gathering into a lively intellectual discussion of the latest hot summer read, like Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan's modern take on E.M. Forster's A Room With a View, or Zadie Smith's Intimations, a collection of essays she wrote during lockdown.

Do a Paint Night

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Choose a photo with special meaning to you as a couple or among your friends (perhaps a landscape shot from a recent holiday?), send your guests a kit of paper, watercolors, and brushes, and turn the festivities into a DIY virtual paint night. Wine highly recommended.

Organize a Virtual Wine Tasting

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Purchase a tasting pack from popular Napa winery Matthiasson (which includes three reds, two whites, and a rosé, the same selection you would try if you were in their tasting room). Then go on their website to reserve a group Zoom tasting session.

Have a Karaoke Night

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Thanks to platforms like Watch2Gether (which can be used simultaneously with Zoom and other video conferencing apps), it's possible to virtually recreate a karaoke night. How about going a step further and making it a costume party?

Play Newlywed Games

8 Ideas for a Virtual Wedding Shower
Organizing a newlywed game night is an easy and simple way to engage all of your guests in a fun activity—and quiz them on how well they know the couple.
