Create a list of invited guests and share it with your Maid of Honor (MOH) and Bridesmaids (BM).
Determine the platform that you wish to host your celebration on. Create an email with all of the pertinent details including the link and password 45 days prior to the event. Plan to have your event for 1 to 2 hours.

Go virtual on gifts and have them delivered to your home in advance. Open your gifts during the bridal shower for that in-person feel. Get creative, make it a spa day. Locate the spa of your choice and have this information added to the save the date. You may end up with a full day of pampering courtesy of your girls. Doesn't that sound amazing?
