10 Ways to Create a Fun Party Atmosphere at Your Wedding

Your wedding is essentially the biggest party you’ll ever throw! So much goes in to organising a wedding but there’s a few simple things you can do to ensure a great party atmosphere. We love the idea of having some cute ‘party animals’ as escort cards or place cards to create a fun party feel. It’s an easy DIY – pick up some animal figurines and spray them silver or gold for a festive feel.

Props are always a great way to get guests involved – they’ll love posing with a few for snaps with pals, you might even see them on the dance floor later too! Other great ideas include a candy buffet for a much needed pick me up after a few hours on the dance floor (parties and nibbles always go hand in hand) and a basket of ‘dancing shoes’ for tired feet to ensure guests can dance the night away! See more brilliant ideas below…
