Congratulations on your engagement! What an exciting time to make great memories, even if you can’t get everyone together in person to celebrate just yet.
It might take a bit more planning, but here are some ways you can still have a fabulous engagement party.
1. Keep it intimate
There is nothing worse than people talking over each other on a virtual call. Keep the guest list to a tight-knit group of friends and family. It won't take long for everyone to get comfortable with sharing their screen time and the quieter people won't feel left out.
2. Have a meal plan
Either let everyone know what to make in advance or send your guests a meal that you can all eat together. Another idea is a signature cocktail that everyone can make.
3. Decorate in advance
You can send decorations or ask your guests to decorate too. If you keep it simple, but fun everyone can get into the celebratory spirit.
4. Let everyone know the party plan
You don’t want to sit and stare at everyone for a couple of hours, so it’s a good idea to plan some games. They don’t have to be cheesy but something that everyone will enjoy.
There are lots of online games that you can play with your cell phone, so you won't need to worry about props.
5. Open any gifts on the call so the sender can see your reaction
If you have received gifts from attendees, open them on the call. People love seeing your delight when you open their gift.
