A disco themed wedding from the 1970s sounds like a really fab fun theme! Here are some ideas from us to help you create the perfect atmosphere for your disco-themed wedding:

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 Outfits

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.

Get yourself a Disco Dance Floor

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.
