After The Party Is THE AFTER PARTY
The concept of an After Party is gaining more and more popularity in Canada this year. It actually has become a great way to thank all your guests and involve them into a complete fun and crazy party. People have started considering that most weddings go incomplete without an After Party. If your guests had ample of fun on your wedding reception wouldn’t they love the After Party more?
You would always find a group of friends and family, who would want to stay a little longer, enjoy the throbbing music and dance until they drop. After party is meant for such group of people for who fun never ends. A reception after party with such group of fun loving people can add more excitement to your wedding. You can extend your wedding celebration a little longer and impress your guests with special arrangements to remember your wedding for their life.
An after party must be planned parallel to your wedding plans. If you are calling your guests to a bar or to a restaurant rooftop you must make booking at least a couple of weeks ahead. Make sure you have the lists of guests attending beforehand. This would help you choose the venue to comfortably accommodate every guest. It is better to reserve the place for a private party and make arrangements for champagne and other drinks, appetizers and food. If you are planning to call large number of guests to the after party then it’s better to book the entire bar. Although this could turn out to be a little expensive yet it would take the hassle of organizing the party at your wedding reception venue from your shoulder.
If you have a tight budget, you can always consider organizing the After Party at your reception site with the help of your wedding planner. This would not only minimize the cost but would also give you a lot of freedom to decorate the venue according to your taste and style, play music that your guests would enjoy and serve drinks and food according to your choice.
You would not want to call each and every guest who attended your wedding to the after party. An after party is usually celebrated with the close ones. But it’s better to call everyone who attended your wedding and make some extra arrangements. To save extra cost on invitation cards, you can mention about the wedding party on the wedding cards itself.
The after party should ideally be held either at your reception site or at a private place close by. Since the after party is celebrated right after the wedding reception, it would be easier for the guests to join if the venue is same or at an adjacent place. An after party is the best option for you to thank all your guests and shower them with surprises. You can start with a different decoration, menu, lights, and drinks. The theme for your after party could be completely different from your wedding.
