If you have ever been on a destination wedding in a beautiful place together with your loved ones, you know that you want to hold on to this feeling of having the most amazing time without a care in this world, for as much as possible!
We are here to tell you how easy it is to extend the fun to the next day too!
Going to the beach especially if your destination is a summer paradise, is always a safe choice but how about doing something out of the ordinary? Here are the top 5 ideas for a fun, laid-back evening, after your big event:
1. Wine tasting & food pairing
Following a fully emotional wedding day, -when you have probably partied too much- it is a good idea to enjoy a relaxing activity together with your loved ones. If you are a group of “bon viveurs” , try booking our winery for an afternoon private tour! You can combine the wine tasting with traditional finger food or even an early dinner, where you can all relax, enjoy the local cuisine and chat about the highlights and gossips of the day before. Wine, food and friends. The best combination ever!
2. Wedding photos & videos viewing
Talking about highlights, how great would it be if you could gather with your friends the day right after the wedding and share all the photos, videos and stories while they still are fresh in memory? You could get a big screen or a projector, available for anyone to plug in their device and share the moments captured! Pair it with some wine and the result cannot be other than good laughs, emotional moments and more happy memories for you to take back home.
3. Movie night under the stars
Picture this: a sweet summer evening, huge pillows on the floor, cozy blankets, fairy lights, buttery popcorn, your favourite rosé and your favourite people. (I know I already want to be there!) Chose that movie that brings back sweet childhood memories, or the one that resembles your love story. Or even the one that always cracks you up! You and your guests will certainly enjoy a peaceful evening where you can all be together and at the same time sit back and relax.
4. Game night
If you still have some energy left and you really want the party to go on, go for a Game Night! Bring together all the guests that are into it, separate them into groups, set a prize (like a box of your favourite wine) and organise different games and competitions that will skyrocket the already good mood! From Trivial and Who Knows the Couple Best game, to Charades and Pictionary, this is a no-fail recipe to keep the party going in a more interactive and joyful way.
5. Cooking Lesson
Having your wedding in a destination other than the country you live in, besides the beauty of the place, you probably, on some level, love its cuisine as well. Love goes through the stomach after all, right? The day after your wedding might be a great opportunity for you to share this love with your guests. Book a cooking lesson in a private peaceful place and have your guests learn how to make simple traditional delicacies! The professionals who organise these type of events can provide all the equipment needed and are usually experts on turning their lessons into once-in-a lifetime experiences!
Our advice? Don’t hesitate to think out of the box for your party! It is actually way easier to do any of the above than you can imagine! We know, because we can organise it all in our winery as well! So we say: go for it!
