I can’t get enough of themed parties – so much so that I even turned my wedding into one! Just think about it- people are always looking for an excuse to dress up and have a good time. What better way to accomplish both than by picking a theme and hosting a party?! Below I show case a few of my favorite themes along with some tips to make the party go over seamlessly.
Let’s start with my dreamy 1920s wedding! We wanted a fun atmosphere that encouraged guests to boogy down all night. To pull off this idea, we started early with themed save the dates which got guests excited about our Great Gatsby meets Harlem Nights party of a wedding.
Next, we made sure that we clearly identified the dress code by adding outfit ideas to our wedding website for guests’ reference. We consistently promoted the theme through our invitations, wedding app, and emails.
The night of the wedding there was no question that guests got the memo loud and clear! Everyone looked spectacular from head to toe.
Kentucky Derby Party
Second on my list of fun themes is the Kentucky Derby Party. You don’t have to go to Louisville to feel like you’re at the horse track enjoying the festivities. Great music and friendly wagers on the races at the right venue are just as fun.
It was great seeing all the guys and gals dressed to the nines in accordance with the theme this Spring. And to top it off, you can really have fun with hats without breaking the bank. The homemade hats looked grand enough to be high end. Check out the pic below. Bet you can’t tell the difference!
With a little over a year to plan, this themed party should definitely be on your radar.
African Attire Party
No one will believe me, but Beyonce stole TWO of my dreams this year with the announcement of twins followed by a Bomb African themed push party that broke the internet. Truthfully, it’s all good because the festive attire and vibe of the pictures made me scream “Yass, girl!” as if I were there.
The Carter/Knowles family is THE best at hosting themed parties AND slaying costumes for themed parties they are invited to. Just check out all of this winning below!
