Our couples know how to have a good time at Austin wedding party. And what better way to celebrate than with a late-night, intimate gathering with your closest friends. We’ve put together a guide for throwing a memorable after-party.
Why host an after-party?
After a beautiful ceremony and a lovely reception do you really need an after-party? Lets face it, the reception is filled with so many things you’re required to do you that you don’t have a chance to mingle and dance. An after-party is an opportunity to keep the celebration going and have some one-on-one time with your friends that have been there with you from your first date to your first dance.
Do we have to provide food and alcohol?
Realistically, your guests are going to be hungry – especially if they’ve had a lot to drink already. It can be a simple snack or hor d’oeuvres. A typically after-party lasts around 90 min so you don’t have to splurge.
How do I ensure that only our younger friends are invited without hurting everyone’s feelings?
Simply send electronic invites to those you want to include and specify that this gathering is not to be talked about during the reception.
How do we make our after-party memorable?
Be authentic to you as newlyweds. Your after-party is an opportunity to enjoy your closest friends and family members’ company, so do it in a way that shows off your taste such as the music you choose, your snacks and drinks and it will surely be a memorable night.
