Disco Party Decororations
Embrace the glitz and glamour of the disco era with plenty of shiny mirror balls, shimmering metallics, and vibrant mood enhancing colors. Set up lounge areas with plush seating and funky patterns. Use neon lights and LED dance floors to create an electric atmosphere. Maybe hire some vintage furniture.
Disco theme invitations
Let your guests know for the get go what your theme is! Design your invitations with bold and vibrant colors, incorporating disco balls, retro fonts - like Retro Cool and Vintage King, and disco-era graphics.
You could even include a mini disco ball keychain as a fun and memorable touch.
Retro vibe Venues for your disco theme wedding
Choose a venue that either has a retro vibe or can be transformed with disco-themed decorations. Consider ballrooms, venues with mirrored walls, or outdoor spaces that can accommodate a dance floor.
For the bride and groom, think bell-bottoms, wide collars, jumpsuits, and platform shoes.
Incorporate sequins, metallics, and bold prints. Bridesmaids and groomsmen could also embrace the disco style with similar attire. Encourage your guests to dress in 70s-inspired outfits as well.
Wedding Disco Songs
Create a playlist filled with disco classics like "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees, "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" by Michael Jackson, and "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. Hire a DJ who specialises in disco music to keep the dance floor grooving all night long.

Set up a spacious dance floor as the centerpiece of your reception. A LED light-up dance floor would be the ultimate disco touch. Scatter disco ball centerpieces and hanging decorations to add to the ambiance. Hanging disco balls above the dancefloor will shine multi coloured lights everywhere.
