Your wedding day will be the most special day you’ll have and you want to use the opportunity to throw the biggest party of your life!
What makes an ace wedding?
Here are our tips for the throwing the coolest wedding in South London.
Go With a Theme
You should have some sort of theme for your wedding. This makes planning a lot easier and directs you towards the right decisions at every stage.
Ethnic themes are currently popular and perfect for a cool wedding. Highlight Jamaican roots or add a bit of Japanese flavour to your day by organising a proper Keisha-themed wedding.
You could also just build your theme around a specific colour or even a decade. Although vintage 20’s weddings have long been a favourite among couples, a funky 80’s wedding could be unique option for a fun party!
Find the Right Venue
Your venue has the biggest impact on the success of your wedding. You need a place that helps you create the right atmosphere and that guarantees the whole reception goes down smoothly.
South London has a number of quirky spots for throwing a trendy wedding. If you are looking for something laidback, then consider venues such as the Adventure Bar. You could even check with your local pub if they’d be willing to host you.
You should also consider town halls and community halls as an option. Town halls give you a lot more freedom in terms of the décor, but you may not have as many options when it comes to catering and the possibility of having a bar.
Pick Trendy Local Food
Parties without good food don’t deserve a party status and if you want to keep your guests happy, focus on the food! Luckily, South London provides some of the best when it comes to amazing, tasty cuisine.
The hottest wedding trend in town right now is to have street food served at the wedding. If you love this idea, then you’ll love Anna Mae’s street food, which you can hire for your own parties! Have a favourite takeaway? Check if they’d be able to provide food for your party!
Don’t forget the option of shopping street food from the amazing street food markets, like Brixton Market. It’s a great, budget-friendly alternative to hiring catering, and provided something different for your wedding day!
Turn Up the Heat with Entertainment
If you want your guests to talk about your wedding for years to come, it’s important to nail the entertainment!
Hire a South London wedding DJ, or if you want something a bit more specific, book a band. Band is a better alternative if you are going with a themed wedding – a specialised band will guarantee the music enhances the atmosphere at the party.
You might also want to add some extra glamour to your event. Wedding fireworks are among our favourites and guaranteed to impress the guests!
Although fireworks and music will get your guests on their feet, you want to add a few party games to make sure they feel part of the big day. Play Jenga outdoors or organise musical chairs as part of the entertainment.
