10 Awesome Ideas for Your Wedding Party

Updated: Jul 10, 2021

Cake? Sorted. Dress? Sorted? Guest invites? Sorted. Deciding what to do for evening entertainment? Not quite sorted...


If you're getting married, you've probably got the ball rolling on pretty much every aspect of your wedding, but the one area that can often prove indecisive is what exactly it is you want for your evening party. This is usually the last thing to get sorted because of this.


This blog will provide you with some fun and quirky ideas for your evening party, that you may not have otherwise thought of. So, here goes:



1. The "Surprise" First Dance


Shock your guests with a fully-rehearsed First Dance routine! Make it even more of a surprise by organising a first and second half routine. The first half can be the traditional, "slow dance", to a more emotional, "stereotypical" song. The second half can flip to a much more upbeat song, which is where all of your rehearsal comes into play!


Now, you're probably thinking, "I'm too shy to do this" or "I haven't got the confidence to do this". The great thing about this is you don't really need to be very good at what you rehearsed or how it pans out. As soon as your guests notices the song flip, they will be your biggest fans! Cheers and laughs guaranteed. The latter will definitely happen if one of you does something completely wrong! There's no shame in being the the target of the joke.


The great thing about doing something like this is you can initiate the start of the night. You immediately relax the atmosphere, and it's a great way of getting your evening guests who've just arrived to get into the party spirit! You as the wedding couple are the biggest influencers of the entire day. I can almost guarantee more of your guests will come to the dance floor during the night because of the surprise first dance.
