Nowadays, it’s all about the after-party! The after-party is the party after the reception, where your guests continue the celebration well into the night. Here are some ideas to make the perfect party!
Important Necessities for the After-Party
One tip for planning an after-party is being sure to host it immediately following the reception. More importantly, making sure that all the guests whom attended the reception, know about it and are invited. Typically, the older guests will leave, while the younger guests will stick around for the second celebration.
After-parties are all about location, location, location. Choose the right venue that suits both you and your groom’s style. Possible suggestions include night clubs, restaurants, casinos, or even hosting the party at a hotel. Also, if planning two celebrations becomes overwhelming, ask your maid of honor to plan the after-party. Just be sure that snacks, alcoholic beverages, music, and decor are all included.
Planning two parties can be expensive, so its important to keep in mind certain cost-saving tips. Be sure to choose a simple theme with DIY decorations or reused decor from the reception/wedding. Consider even hosting the after-party in the original reception venue, and be sure to ask for a discount. Lastly, use an iPod rather than hiring a DJ or musician at your after-party.
