The wedding reception goes by faster then you can imagine. However, the celebration does not have to end when the band or DJ play the final song. Continue the celebration with a post-reception bash!
Big City Bride is creating uber fun after parties to keep the celebration going long after the formalities are finished. The after party does not have to cost much at all… think reuse and repurpose! If the location of the after party is the same location as the reception take flowers, furniture, dcor, etc. from cocktail hour and re-set in a slightly different way with a few tweaks. Just add music + drinks and watch the party go and go and go! Create a wedding playlist on an iPod prior to wedding day so the music is ready to go. If there needs to be a location change and you would prefer to keep things casual, pick a bar and have your wedding party inform everyone of the location. This will give guests the option to join if they would like, but remember it is a good idea to call ahead to scope out the bar scene. You don’t want to show up to a bar with line around the block or a one with a private party! For a formal after party, you may want to include the after-party information on your wedding website or invitation. This will guarantee the invite has been extended to all guests!
Some of our favorite after party ideas are…
· Creating a unique and personal after party name, such as “Happily Ever After Party”
· Champagne bottle flares
· Light up champagne bottles
· Disco balls over the dance floor
· Late night bites and food trucks
