4 Fun Post Reception Ideas for South Florida Weddings

Have you ever wanted to prolong the celebration? Well, you are not alone. In fact, adding an after party is one of the latest trends in weddings. Post reception celebrations provide a chance for more intimate conversation and connecting with out-of-town guests. The after party may also be the first time the newlyweds have to relax and enjoy a bite to eat. Here are some suggestions to inspire an after party celebration:

Beach Bonfire: Many locations from lakeside and beachfront venues to country clubs and bed and breakfasts offer this idea as a low key way to extend the festivities with quality conversation, a nightcap and late night treats. However, check with your venue manager or if it is a state park, check for any regulations or restrictions and if there is a permit or fee.

An aperitif or beverage among those that stay around the warmth of a bonfire is sure to create special memories for your South Florida wedding.

S’Mores:  A S’mores station caps off the night with a treat and goes hand in hand with a bonefire. What guest can resist melted chocolate and marshmallows sandwiched between graham cracker squares? This kind of event that engages the guests will set your South Florida wedding apart from any other they have attended this year.

Food Trucks:  Late night food trucks are an innovative way to bring new life to your reception once hunger has resurged with all of that dancing.  From mobile gourmet pizza and tacos to pulled pork barbecue, and freshly made donuts, there are a variety of food trucks catering to your every craving.

Rooftop Renegade: If your wedding is downtown, why not take the after party to the next level—literally. A rooftop champagne toast is exciting. Outdoor heat lamps and fireplaces make a rooftop the perfect post-reception hang out any time of year.
