Right from preparing the guest list till the D-day ritual, the whole process of organizing a wedding is exhausting. The only welcoming change in this complete wedding saga is a Cocktail party. Here’s when you can let go of your stress, loosen up and enjoy your little shindig. Planning a cocktail is fun but a significant theme could really spice things up.
Here’s a list of cocktail party themes you can try for an awesome get-together!
1. Sun never sets on a party at the Beach!
A Cocktail party at the beach would not only revive your soul but also makes an amazing backdrop for the endless crazy, stupid, wild games you can play with your friends and fam bam.
2. Bringing back the Retro!
Go back in time and discover the golden era. Retro would include Bollywood styles of 80’s and 90’s. You can also go international and try Hollywood fashions. Victorian era with its corsets and ball gowns is also a top choice for the retro look.
3. Celebrate your love for a different place!
We all have that one place that we are in love with. Why not bring it to your cocktail party and get engrossed in it. It may be Paris, Venice or Las Vegas. Include that place’s famous monuments, recipes, colors, folklore, costumes and even scenery in your party.

4. Colour coordination is cool!
This is a theme which is being followed for generations. The costumes and décor are color coordinated. You can also mix and match by using more than one color. Or if there are two sets of people coming, for example from the bride’s side and the groom’s side, color code them in two different colors. Decorate your place with a similar shade of the color to make it more eye-catching.
5. The story theme this party!
Be it Harry Potter or Star Wars, we are all obsessed with some book/movie/show. Why not act as a true aficionado and make it your theme. Since you know the book inside out or watched the series for the hundredth time, you know the intricacies of it. Ask your guests to dress up as their favorite characters and plan the decorations.

6. Quirky or weird? Unless you try it, you’ll never know!
Get spooky by playing pranks, telling scary stories and watching horror movies. Include jack-o'-lanterns, bonfires to your décor and candy apples, colcannon, potato pancakes, soul cakes, pumpkin pie to your cuisine. Vampires, Witches & Wizards, Skeletons, and other scary, weird people would be your guests.
7. Blending never goes out of style!
Blend two or more themes and get creative with the attire and decoration. It could be anything from blending the Kashmiri culture with the Christian to a combination of your favorite places or movie series.
Unlike the other events of a wedding, the cocktail party is an occasion where you can get as innovative as you want. Multiply the merriment with your uninhibited creativity and get that confetti in your hand to get the party started.
