Your wedding day is all about showing your nearest and dearest the love that you and your partner have for one another. But of course, if you’re going to ask people to take time out of their busy schedules to celebrate with you, then it’s important that you show them a good time.
They’ll love watching the beautiful ceremony, but they’ll let their hair down and have fun at the party, providing they have an opportunity to do so. In this blog, we’ll suggest some tips that’ll remove all doubt. Your wedding party will be one that lives long in the memory for all the right reasons.
A Live Band
What better way to tell people that the party is getting started than by having a live band play covers of the songs that everyone knows and loves? A live band really does add a lot — if you’ve ever been to a wedding with one, then you’ll know just how much they can help to elevate the atmosphere. Be sure to do your research beforehand, so you get a talented band, and talk with them beforehand to get an idea of the playlist.
Most people want to party, but sometimes, people are a little bashful when it comes to getting on the dancefloor, especially early on when there’s no-one yet dancing. The live band should help with that, but it’s also recommended to give people an additional helping hand.
For example, one way to do this is to have inflatable instruments, wigs, and other props available. People are much more inclined to move to the dancefloor if they have a prop that detracts from the awkwardness. Give it a try, and you’ll see just how quickly the dancefloor fills up.
Add A Surprise
Most wedding parties are all about the music, and having the guests dance all night long. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it is a good idea to break things up a little. So why not look at adding a surprise?
If you’re getting married in a rural environment, then you could buy some fireworks, and treat your loved ones to an awesome display in the night sky. If that’s not an option, then how about having a choreographed dance with your nearest and dearest? IT’ll certainly be a highlight for everyone, and plenty of fun to do too.
Your guests are unlikely to be party machines. They’ll be happy to be on the dancefloor for a couple of hours, but at some point, they’ll need a break. Arguably just as important as the dancefloor is the relaxing zone, a space away from the music where guests can unwind and talk.
They’ll go there for thirty minutes, recover some energy, and then return to the dancefloor-ready to bust some moves. It’ll help to keep the party going all night. Oh, and you know what else will do that? Midnight snacks — provide one so people can recharge their energy levels and keep on dancing.
