Basic rules for the bachelor party during Corona

The Emergency Measures Ordinance was in force in Austria up to and including February 7. The lockdown was also extended indefinitely in Germany. This means that catering establishments will have to remain closed, as will hotels, theaters and other entertainment venues. Only businesses important for basic needs such as supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, etc. are exempt.

Private parties are generally prohibited until the end of the lockdown. It is allowed to meet with others in private outside of curfew (20:00 – 6:00), but there is a limit of no more than six people from two different households. However, children need not be counted here – up to six minors may also be present. Keeping a safe distance, you can of course meet outside now that the weather is improving. In the Prater or other parks you can already see isolated birthday groups.

Masks are not required by law for private contact, but are definitely recommended. CoViD-19 is highly contagious and it is important to be mindful of personal safety. The new, even more contagious mutations of the Corona virus have also already been detected in Austria and Germany. In Vienna, 66% of people who tested positive are already infected with the new mutation.

The situation therefore makes it de facto impossible at the moment to party without endangering one’s health. But don’t be sad, we have picked out some fun alternatives for you.

In addition, an end is in sight, at least in Austria from 19 May for groups of up to 10 people an outdoor meeting is possible again. That is, you can celebrate your wedding at least outside properly. If you need inspiration for this, you can simply check out our articles with outdoor ideas formen and ideas for women. It also brings a garden party back within reach. But please still do not forget about distance and hygiene measures! Unfortunately, our German colleagues will have to wait a little longer, but opening steps are already planned here.

Alternatives to the personal bachelor party during CoViD – The virtual bachelor party

For those who still want to celebrate in the coming weeks, here are a few options. With these you can defy the Corona virus and have a virtual bachelor party. Because it has become apparent in recent months that we as a society become particularly inventive in difficult situations. Thus, birthdays, New Year’s Eve and Christmas were already celebrated during the pandemic. So why should not be possible to have a fun bachelorette party?

Anyone who works in a home office has most likely had to deal with programs that enable video conferencing and screen sharing. Whether it’s just chatting or doing activities together, here are a few tips for a virtual bachelorette party.

Communication means to party during CoViD


The ideal program with which to celebrate a virtual bachelor party during CoViD is Discord. In addition to standard features like chat, voice and video calling, you can of course also share your screen to view photos and videos together. This is also a great way to implement pair quizzes.

If you want to take a little more time, you can let off some steam here. Discord, in fact, offers the possibility of doing things like listening to music together or even game collections with classics like Truth or Dare to make available. A server created, a few bots installed and the party can start.

Discord was especially popular in the gamer scene before the pandemic, but is now catching on in a broader market. Here is a link to a super beginner tutorial. This will definitely make the virtual bachelor party a success.


The fastest growing video conferencing software since the pandemic began is Zoom. Besides chat function, group calls with and without video transmission and screensharing, everything is possible. Unfortunately, Zoom is quite complicated to use and in the free version all calls end automatically after 40 minutes. Therefore, we do not recommend it primarily for the bachelor party. However, Zoom also has its strengths. For example, with good Internet connections, it’s fast enough to make music together. So if you have a musical bride or groom, you can run wild with it.

Social games and activities for the bachelor party during Corona

Event at Home – simply party at home

One thing we’ve learned since the Corona pandemic began is that you don’t necessarily have to leave the house to enjoy delicacies.

Postponing and making up for the wedding night

Given the measures, few weddings are taking place at the moment, but here and there, even in these times, people choose to say yes to each other. Still, it’s worth thinking about whether you can postpone the bachelor party and wedding and catch up at a later date. Because we are sure of one thing: Corona will not be with us forever.
