Organising your Hen night? Or just can’t get enough of the wedding stuff? Then how about this as an idea: a wedding reception set in a club.
This club night asks everyone to come in wedding garb from taffeta bridesmaids dresses to a big poofy wedding dress or even just wearing a dodgy mother-of-the-bride hat. The venues decorated in pink balloons and doilies and the DJs- including one called Otis Wedding – play a mix of cheesy tracks to shake your wedding butt to.
There’s a dressing-up box and photo booth with lots of brilliantly bad-taste wedding outfits to try on which are then posted on the internet so you can have a lasting reminder of your ‘big day’…
You might even get a proposal out of it?!
The free champagne on entry and what wedding reception would be complete without the buffet. Lots of wedding cake, mini sausage rolls, cheese sarnies and Wotsits galore.
The next White Wedding is on the 20th June in Tufnell Park, London. I think it sounds like great fun and might be good practice for the real event!

My Mum dug through the many cardboard boxes in the attic to find her wedding photo album. We’re looking for a potential picture for the family tree project. Neither my Mum nor I had looked at this album in a long time and it was great to go through the photographs together and share her memories. The photos are lovely and very, VERY Seventies!
This is the church where they got married with my mum and dad’s heads floating above the altar (I will not be asking our photographer to use a similar effect!).
My mum was a beautiful bride.
Mum says she still has the cake topper somewhere.
My Dad loks pretty grumpy in a lot of the photos. Mum says that was because he had had his stag night the evening before the wedding and was feeling a little ill the next day. For ‘ill’ read hungover!
I had to include this. I think its a fantastic photo maybe the epitome of a 1970s wedding: The huge glasses, the hair, Dad’s face imposed on my mother’s silhouette.
Love you Mum and Dad! Here’s to 30 years of marriage and 30 years more!
