Ten Fun Ideas For a Wedding After Party

BLUE HERON BLOG

You’re young and energetic and you’ve been planning your wedding for a year. It’s going to be the best wedding and reception you could imagine. . .yet you want a little more party time with your friends. A few more hours for dancing and toasting and laughing would end your day just perfect. That why a lot of couples are opting for an after party the night of their wedding and reception. Here’s a few pointers to ponder when considering an after party:
• Do some research – call ahead to check local nightclubs availability for a private party. Ask how much they charge and what is included?
• Do they have live music or a d.j.? Will they accept a certain amount of the bar tab prepaid by you in advance?
• Consider what you want to accomplish – if it’s dancing the night away with cocktails, then choose a nightclub with music and an adequate space for your group.
If it’s connecting one on one with friends you haven’t seen for a while, you’ll want to choose a private room without loud music. A fun option is a local pool hall/beer hall, where those who want to gather around the pool tables can, and those who want to sit and chat can too!
• Who to invite? You can be discreet and hand a small invitation to those you want to come to the after party, or pre-mail it, advising that not everyone will be invited so it’s not discussed at your wedding. Or you can pretty much rely on the fact that only the young friends and family will join an after party anyway, so no need to do invitation only. Simply let the whole group at your reception know where it will be. This surprise factor is always fun!
• Keep it simple (if you desire). You don’t have to decorate or plan too much, just let your guests know what type of “venue” you’ll be going to so they can dress appropriately. It doesn’t hurt to tactfully let the guests know if they need to bring money, I.D., or anything else in particular.
• Food or no food? By midnight, the group is getting hungry again. Some fun ideas are food trucks, bar food (that they provide at the location); such as burgers, fries, pizza. It doesn’t hurt to provide a tray or two of cookies or brownies to keep everyone awake. You might check with the venue to see if they’ll provide coffee for those driving home.
• Transportation – you’ll most likely have cocktails so check public transit and if it’s too late to use it, then a transportation option would be great. Any local service would work; such as, www.blacktietrans.com. Also, find out what a cab ride would cost to local hotels and have a number on hand to call. It’s important to keep your guests safe after a day of partying! Also, most bars and nightclubs will now provide designated drivers with free non-alcoholic beverages.
• Who pays the bar tab? That’s up to you. It’s nice to pay for say, the first half hour of the bar tab, and then the guests can buy their own drinks after that. This is a good idea because it discourages people from drinking too much too late!
• Party style? Depending on where your wedding is, you can go to a casino, a bowling alley, a bay cruise, go to a local club with a live band, a micro brewery, coffee house, local pizza parlor or a restaurant that has a large room you can use.
• Does this seem overwhelming to think about? Ask your wedding planner – he or she will be happy to coordinate a great after party for you and your wedding guests! And above all, HAVE FUN!

Cheers!
