Hello, how has everyone been dealing with their bridal shower? I’m debating to make it a drive by bridal shower just to be on the safe side?

    We are hosting one next week I can’t believe how fast it’s come. Honestly I think a drive-by shower is a fantastic idea. Because I’m feeling pretty nervous being around people I don’t know and being around people that I’m not sure how safe they’ve been.

    I’m having such a hard time deciding a drive by or renting a event room and having small group with masks but I wouldn’t feel safe either not knowing who these people have been in contact with. Just makes me sad 😭

    Before my wedding was postponed, my bridal shower was planned to be a staggered start time event. So everyone was given a different time to show up, and we were only going to have a max of around 6 people in attendance at a time. That way, we would adhere to social distancing, and I would have gotten to spend time with everyone. Not sure if this is something that would work for you, but it's an idea to consider!

    My mom and some ladies are hosting an in-person shower for us on the 30th of August. And my MOH (lives 8hrs away) is hosting a Zoom shower later that day for those who are more concerned about social distancing and/or live further away than is reasonable to travel for a shower.

    My shower was an hour of drive-through, a one hour break so everyone could get home, and then a zoom meeting with gift opening and games.

    Mine was a drop by from noon to 3. We had only 25 people on the guest list and kept it outdoors. Some people stayed the whole time others were there for a few minutes. We had changed the food from buffet style restaurant to pre cut, pre plates sandwiches, individually cupped veggies in dip and instead of cake we had sip cakes. We bought orange juice in individual containers and had one masked & gloved person pouring the champagne

    I was planning one (with the bride’s mom) for October that was going to be outside. We were going to have one bartender so no one else touched any of the bottles and individually plated food. Truthfully, I’m relieved that it was postponed for another year because the whole thing made me nervous. I would have preferred a Zoom or drive by or even a combination of the two!

    My girls have mentioned that they’re planning a virtual bridal shower. I know next to nothing about it. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    As far as I'm aware my FMIL is still planning on hosting a physical Bridal Shower a few weeks before our wedding in mid-November. I see no issues going to or holding events but I have also been working with the public through the entire pandemic (even before masks were required) and have been fine and so has my family. This is just my perspective as I am/was an essential employee and was never able to quarantine and was constantly exposed. I see it as this, if you are comfortable going to the grocery store (which ours in VA are packed) or to Target, you should be just fine at a small gathering like a shower, but once again, this is my opinion based on my experience with Covid.

    Personally i am not but a drive by shower is cost effective and safe. But I don’t understand the concept of drive by anything lol. Help me understand. Lol


    They come by and blow?Or are you outside with like a tent and lawn chairs?Do they drive by and drop off gifts? Or is that too much contact?Do they put gifts on the porch? Ding and Ditch?! Are there refreshments? How do they get them? Do they still get out the car or are they served like a drive-thru?
    Yeah clearly I’m still not understanding the new trends during these times! tenor.giftenor.gif

    My MOH wants to do mine after the wedding and then capture some guests that aren't able to come to the ceremony. In my opinion a drive by just sounds like "give me gifts" when a shower should mean so much more than that.

    I had mine July 19th and it was very covid friendly. The venue (community center) though was large enough to spread the tables far apart. The food was served, like cafeteria style or subway style. I had two friends with gloves and masks that put everything you requested on a plate and handed it to you at the end. There were extra tables in case someone wanted to sit alone or away. We had germ-x stations and games could be played seated so there wasn't much moving around. It was great and everyone enjoyed it.

    We're just not having one, unfortunately. My family considered it, but the neither the virtual nor drive-by options appealed to me, and logistically it just didn't make sense at this point.

    I'd do a virtual shower. I wouldn't want guests to have to drive to me just to drop off a gift.

    Our state has a limit of 25 indoor or 50 outdoor guests. Our venue is doing an outdoor/ indoor thing weather permitted. I know all the guests that we invited will not come but needs to RSVP in a timely manner.

    I think a drive-by shower is a great idea for local guests! A virtual shower is another possibility. I had one virtual shower via Zoom and am going to end up having another - they were both originally supposed to be in-person in different states, so the guest list has ended up being different for each. I had no idea what to expect, but the first one was honestly really lovely. It was hosted by two of my FMIL's closest friends, and they came up with a few ideas and asked what I wanted to do. We ended up having one of them kick things off and the other close things out with a toast and a piece of marriage advice, and invited everyone else to share their own toasts, advice (and/or date night idea!) in between. I introduced my mom and MOH right after the first hostess went, and then people just jumped in one at a time from there. I was WAY more relaxed than I would have been with anything in-person right now, and it was so nice to just sit and chat and hear so many women's insights into what makes their marriages special.

    Yes, drive-by! with possible option of zooming in at an earlier time for anyone far away
