10 Steps to the Ultimate Day After Wedding Party

The day after the wedding is a great time to relax with guests, have the chats and take in everything from the day before. We love the idea of a BBQ and some lawn games for a full-on day after wedding party, or even just a couple of bevs for the couple and guests to toast an amazing day and say their farewells. These days, the day after wedding party can be as important as the wedding day for some (in fact one or two of our experts have said it can often be a better day overall!) with couples being able to completely relax and guests having really broken the ice the day before(!)

We shared a couple of really great ways to spend the day after the wedding on the blog recently – and you should find something to suit most budgets and styles there – but we would always say to keep it casual and hassle free to make sure you can really relax (that means decor is at a distinct minimum, guys!)

Whatever you decide to do the day after (and of course it goes without saying that you don’t have to do anything at all if you don’t want to!) we hope you’ll find these 10 simple steps to the best day after wedding party ever! helpful. Our only major piece of advice (we beg you!) is to let everyone sleep in before the celebrations begin…
