How to Throw a Fun After-Party (Without Breaking the Bank)
It's pretty crucial to keep the party going after your reception ends because—odds are—you'll have plenty of revelers who won't want the night to end when the reception does (including yourself). So after the band packs up and the flower girl passes out, you should nail down a few key plans for a smooth transition into the late-night after-party.
First, look at your guest list to determine what kind of after-party you're going for: Is your bridal party full of up-all-night partiers or low-key loungers? Then estimate the number of guests who will likely join and figure out if you can host it at your reception venue, a hotel suite, a local restaurant or the karaoke bar down the street. Throw in a few inexpensive extras (like midnight snacks and morning-after treats) and you're good to go. Find out exactly how to throw a fun after-party your guests will love, below.
