Perfect Party Planning

After your Wedding Ceremony in Suffolk you'll want your Wedding Party to go with a swing! So what makes a good party? The obvious ingredients - food, drink, location, are all part of the answer, but how do you create that atmosphere to make a party memorable? Here's our Guide to help you -

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!

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 follow closely behind music as a wedding reception essential and what better way to ensure a great bar than to have it come to you? Serving up a tempting selection of local lagers, cider, bitter and ale as well as premium spirits and fresh juice, the Cellar 27 mobile bar is a fantastic addition to your wedding reception. They can even supply a cocktail station along with an expert mixer who teaches your guests how to make their own cocktail (as well as serving up a few of course!)

A professional, uniformed team and quality glassware is provided as standard and the well-informed staff can help you obtain the correct licence for your event if required. And the best bit... The bar is suitable for halls, barns, marquees and gardens and can be hired for free if you have 100 guests or more.

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!!
