As event planners we constantly have to come up with creative ways to keep weddings and parties fresh.

Our most recent challenge was to incorporate the feeling of a Las Vegas club into a wedding reception.

Like most young couples these days, the couple we were working with met at a local club and have been together ever since. Last year while on a weekend getaway to Vegas the groom popped the question and they got engaged.

After brainstorming with the newly engaged pair it was evident that they wanted to keep the vibe at their reception more like a club where everyone would be mingling, drinking and dancing all night.

So our challenge was to bring that Vegas feel into their wedding reception but at the same time remain classy and elegant while trying to stay within their budget.

The décor part was quite easy for us … the interesting part was trying to turn the posh event into a nigh club once the music started.

We ordered some LED foam batons, some LED lighted balloons and my personal favorite, LED light-up ice cubes.

Needless to say, we managed to get that Vegas club feel during the reception and the party was a huge success.

Here are some great party ideas for your next event:

LED foam batons: These are a huge hit these days; they can be used when the couple enters the hall, when they leave the hall or on the dance floor.

LED ice cubes: Literally, ice cubes that light up. Imagine people walking around the reception sipping their glowing drinks.

LED balloons – Helium balloons that have LED glowsticks embedded in them, so they float and they glow. These balloons are not just for kids, they looked great.
