The disco theme is huge in weddings right now and a great way to celebrate your up and coming big day where you get to marry the love of your life! Grab your disco dancing shoes and your best sequin covered outfit and hit the dancefloor with your besties. Disco ball and gitter galore!
If you're more into face masks, manicures and a relaxed environment eating chocolate covered strawberries, then a pyjama party hen is the option for you.
