Perfect Party Planning


It's good to start with thinking about your guest's experience and how they will enjoy the after-wedding party. This includes layout of the room and a natural flow for guests to follow. Key elements of planning include where to take & store coats, the positioning of the bar or spontaneous access to the dance floor are all important. If the event has been thought through then guests will feel more relaxed which means you can enjoy yourself even more!

Music
Lighting and music are probably the most essential part of your wedding party. Good Wedding DJ's & bands can get booked up months in advance so think about what (and who) you might want early on.

Drinks
Drinks follow closely behind the music as a wedding reception essential and what better way to ensure a great bar than to have it come to you via a mobile bar?

Food
The style of the food on offer and how it is to be served is also an important consideration in planning your Reception. Whether you're having canapes or a sit-down banquet there are ways to make it run more efficiently. So, for example, you might offer a cold starter at the table before a buffet. Or you might offer drinks at the back of the venue to prevent bottlenecks around the food tables.

If possible arrange for candles or small lamps to be lit around the venue during the early evening to create a warm and intimate atmosphere. Chandeliers might look wonderful during the day but can be too harsh once the disco starts! If your Reception starts during the day and will end in the evening, ensuring overhead lighting can be dimmed and perhaps replaced with uplighters.

Once the setting is established then the fun can begin with the content. It seems nowadays that anything is possible you can have plasma screens showing highlights from your wedding; interactive dance floors; or even traditional fireworks to make the party go with a bang!!
