If there was ever a good excuse to throw a party, it’s got to be when you’re getting married. As you celebrate your union with all of your friends and family, it’s a great time for everyone to let their hair down and dance the night away. But there’s no reason you need to wait until after sundown to get the party going. To ensure your wedding is a memorable event from the start, you’ll want to weave some fun and creative elements into your day.

Here we run through four things to have at your wedding for the perfect party vibe.

A dressing-up box

A dressing-up box is a great way to get your guests laughing. If you’re going for a theme for your day, you could choose costumes and props that reflect that, or just collect a selection of various extravagant items. Charity shops are a good place to search, as well as your parent’s attic. You’ll want to keep everything as sustainable as possible, so by reusing historic items you’ll be helping to avoid single-use plastics and throw-away, non-disposable items. Make it interactive by hiring a photo booth – your guests will love dressing up for silly photos!

Signature Cocktails

Wow your guests with a bar consisting of signature cocktails, crafted to reflect either your wedding theme or another personal attribute of your day. You could even set up various stations where your guests can create their own fun concoctions, or hire a showman-style mixologist to spin the bottle and shake up each cocktail in style. Add in a late-night snack bar with some tasty treats and your guests are sure to be raving about your wedding for years to come.


Speaking of spin the bottle, why not set up some games to help your guests mingle and get into the party spirit? Whether it’s beer-pong or a trivia quiz on the happy couple, there are plenty of ways to make sipping prosecco an even more exciting experience. You could opt to set up a different game on each dinner table or save them for later in the night when the party is in full swing. From wedding guest bingo to giant jenga on the lawn, games are a time-tested method to bring your guests together.

Music and performers

You’ll probably want to hire a live band or a DJ for your reception, but why not bring in some unexpected performers earlier in the day as well? From circus acts to celebrity impersonators, with a little out-of-the-box thinking you can find many ways to make your wedding unique. To raise everyone’s spirits earlier in the day, you could consider a comedian or a magician to fill the gaps between your ceremony and reception.
