It’s Saturday night. You and your guests are celebrating one of your closest friends last night as a free man or woman. But since this is a pandemic bachelor/bachelorette party, there’s bound to be some changes. Approaching the on-site nightclub, you start to feel the booming bass reverberate through the halls, stirring spontaneous excitement for the night to come. Before entering, the bouncer directs you to a table filled with masks, antibacterial hand sanitizer, and hand wipes.
This isn’t your usual bachelor/bachelorette party. But despite the understandable anxieties that come with traveling, planning a soiree during a pandemic is both simple and safe. Here are a few ways you can elevate your celebration while protecting against COVID-19:
