If you are getting married in the near future, and you have decided you want your theme to be disco era, you will have a lot of fun making preparations. There are several ideas you can use to incorporate the 70’s into your wedding reception theme, making it an event that will be sure to be appreciated by all who attend. If you are having the wedding reception in your backyard, you will be able to decorate and prepare the event yourself. Here are some ideas you can use to help you make your wedding event one to remember.
Setting Up The Area
Make sure to have a tent large enough to accommodate all of your guests. You will be able to rent large tents from a party rental company. The tents can be as elaborate as you wish, and they can be set up to have chandeliers and lighting incorporated from the interior. Take a look at lighting that will match the era.
Make sure you hang a bunch of disco balls from the top of the tent to give it that disco appeal. You will want to have a large dance area in place, as 70’s disco is one type of music that gets you out on the floor. You can rent light up dance floors that fit the era perfectly.
When placing furniture, you will want to have your standard wedding seating for dinnertime, and then have a few social areas for guests to sit back and relax. Consider placing some lounge furniture around the dance floor so guests can relax in between sets. Cushioned chaise lounges or large sofas to seat several will be sure to be a hit.
Rent these in funky colors or purchase some fun 70’s themed pillows to place on top of the seating. You can have some end tables set up around the seating area where people can set their drinks next to lava lamps or lights with fringe shades.
Have a few areas under the tent where strings of beads are hung, representing doorway decor that the era used. You can use bright colors such as orange or green to decorate, giving the entire area a 70’s appeal. You can drape a tie-dyed T-shirt over each seat back, giving the reception a colorful look. Couple this with bright peace signs or flowers on each table and use small disco balls on table tops.Read More
