Night owls who prowl the clubs, boogie into the wee hours and breakfast on doughnuts hot off the conveyer belt at 4 a.m. may not be the ideal candidates for a conventional wedding reception. If you’re way more into trends than tradition, then feel free to ditch the cookie-cutter elements. Couples who prefer to shimmy their hips on the late shift should consider an after-hours dance club celebration. It’s a stylish, sophisticated approach that can be a money-saver for pairs intent on paring down their budget. Clever lighting emanates from the bar and dance floor, transforming this space into an after-hours club.
