Even though you may be prancing off with your new spouse to live happily ever after, all your guests have to look forward to is the upcoming work week. For the guests that want to linger, or those who just don’t want to throw in the towel, think about having an after party for them! After parties comes in more ways than just one. Here are a few ideas if you’re thinking about doing a little somethin’ somethin’ for your guests.
Late Night Lounge
So, dinner is finished and the toasts have been said. You have made your grand exit but your guests just can’t say goodbye! Creative a club vibe and let your late-night guests dance the night away. Mix it up by creating a completely different style than that of your wedding. Pump the music and let the drinks flow.
Maybe your reception will be coming to a close just in time for an evening pot of coffee. Or, perhaps, everyone will have partied so late that the morning will get there before they know it. Help your guests get back into the swing of things by creating a relaxed atmosphere and serving some coffee, tea, and some light snacks. Create the space from scratch, or talk the owner of a coffee shop near to your venue into opening up extra early.
Do you think your guests would like to just kick back, relax and chill out under the stars? For a less formal event when the weather is perfect and the sky is clear enough to see the stars, lay out some blankets and let your guests gaze. Serve a sweet drink or treat and have some sparklers available.
In the end, your wedding and reception are more than enough. These ideas can all be translated into reception themes as well. Hope these get your ideas flowing!
