3 Ways to Add a Little Extra Life and Fun to Your Reception

When everything about your reception is going well, the room can seem to take on a life of its own. People of all ages and backgrounds dance, laugh, eat and drink, all while enjoying one another’s company in true style and fashion.

But more often than not, your reception could use a little help getting the party started on the right foot. That’s where an experienced event planner in Washington D.C., like Planet DJ Productions, can help. We know how to throw some of the most memorable parties in the mid-Atlantic region – from weddings to cultural celebrations – and we’re ready to share our expertise with you. Here are 3 ways to add a little extra life and fun into your upcoming reception.

If You Build It, They Will Come: The Dance Floor

If your reception is intended to be a party, what better way to get people moving than to have a dance floor. Depending on the space you’ve rented, you may or may not have a dance floor in place.

If you don’t have a dance floor, you can easily rent one from party organizers like Planet DJ Productions. But even if your hall has a dedicated space for dancing, you might be surprised at the types of floors you can rent to add a little extra flair to your event. Consider renting:

    * A white dance floor for elegance and class
    * A checkered dance floor for that timeless look
    * A parquet dance floor for comfort and performance
    * Or you can also adapt the size of your dance floor based on the number of guests you expect

You can’t expect your guests to dance if they have no place to shuffle their feet. Make getting a dance floor become an integral part of your party-planning to-do list.

Glow sticks are cool. Glow-Bars may be cooler.

Through our experience as Metro DC’s leading party planners, we’ve discovered how integral lighting is to instilling a bit of magic into a reception hall. That’s why we think that Glow-Bars can become a great addition to your party.

Glow-Bars (and Glow-Tables, Glow-Centerpieces and more) add a touch of class and allure to any space. You can even choose the color of your Glow-Bar (to match your color scheme) or go with a Glow-Bar that changes color.

Photo Shoots and Dress Up – The Photo Booth

It’s a guarantee that most people will have access to their own cameras at your reception (thanks to the smartphone!). So why then would you want to rent a photo booth? Because photo booths add a little bit of nostalgia to your party.

There’s something special about being able to pack your friends into a small booth, make silly faces, and get an actual photograph you can hold to cherish the moment forever. And better yet, why not add a few costumes and party gags to the mix? Funny glasses, wigs and more can make each photo booth session as fun as the time spent on the dance floor.
