Description: These are the four wedding after-party trends you’ll be seeing everywhere in 2016.

Weddings are often a balancing act: enough decorum to be parent pleasing, but enough fun to keep your wild college roommate entertained until the wee hours. For those who want both the romance and the rage-fest, it’s all about being strategic with the agenda. Engage in the classic photo-op moments at the reception and cap things off with a serious after-party. At this point, these late-night fetes have moved out of “wedding trend” territory and become a part of the standard itinerary, just like the cocktail hour or the first dance. But according to event planner David Stark. not all after-parties are created equal. “The after-party is definitely about falling down the rabbit hole,” says Stark. “The energy should feel like a nightclub atmosphere. It’s about revving up instead of coming down in a chill-out lounge.”

The first rule of crafting the right vibe? Create an element of surprise with a great reveal: “Unveil a fabulous nightclub setup. It will excite everyone and give them a blast of new energy,” says Stark. “You can also introduce new drinks and food throughout the night or change up the entertainment—if you had a full band during the wedding proper, have a great DJ host the after-party—to add another dimension to the overall experience.” And keep in mind that not all of your guests will make the move to the after-party. “It will be a smaller group of true die-hard partiers, so scale it accordingly,” says Stark. “The dance floor should be intimate.” What are the other key elements of an after-party? Stark shares the four trends that he thinks will be staples of 2016 and beyond.

There’s a great interest in costumes today. Perhaps this trend spreads from the props that have become part of the popular photo booths, but full costume “bars,” where guests can don everything from wigs and masks to full outfits, make for fabulous fun and incredible photos on the dance floor. At this point in the night, inhibitions are at their lowest and even the most reserved will get into the act.

I’ve been seeing a lot of artisanal cocktails and customized bars. The mixologist is the rock star of the moment when it comes to wedding after-parties, concocting libations from natural and artisanal ingredients that include small-batch spirits, unique reductions, syrups, and blends made from scratch.
