It’s not just weddings that require a fabulous venue to invite family and friends. Recently there’s a growing trend in bigger and more lavish wedding anniversary parties and significant birthday parties. It’s wonderful to get all your loved ones together, inviting your longest and dearest friends and family from around the country and the world to celebrate a memorable wedding anniversary or specific birthday in style.
We think the growing number of parties is due to the fact as people tend to live so much further away from each other these days, a good party is a fantastic way to bring everyone together. It’s a unique event and ensures that you all mark a shared life experience with happiness! This is certainly the case with people coming to Gee Brothers for their party invitations. We are delighted to be part of the creation of wonderful memories!
But, unlike weddings you might want to hold your party somewhere a little different as you’re not usually as restricted as you can often be with weddings. And the same goes for the invitations – we have lots of inspiration and ideas on our website, for both bespoke invitations or our online invitation collection.

The best way to search for great party venues is generally by searching online. Don’t limit yourself too much and definitely look at the wedding venues as well. Wedding venues obviously make great party venues and all venues will hold any type of party. Also use listing sites as these have done the hard work for you. Try these: some are general and list venues, others are specifically for party venue listings:
http://www.countrycalling.co.uk – south west predominantly.
https://www.headbox.com – mainly London.
But to help you all, we’ve done a bit of research online and also taken advice from those ordering their wedding anniversary and birthday party invitations from us. Some are a little different and more imaginative – definitely fantastic inspiration!
1. Pool party with a difference
You don’t have to be a child to enjoy a pool party! This is just one example of a luxurious and stunning pool that offers you the chance to party the night away in style, while taking a dip! Gee Brothers would happily design an eye-catching invitation to entice your guests into the pool!!
2. ‘A Night in a Museum’ – party amongst the artefacts!
Let the years slip away and hold your memorable party in this amazing space full of colour and light.
3. An historic party palace
Obviously the National Trust has some amazing houses and castles, in some of the country’s most stunning locations, but did you know you can hire many of them for birthday and anniversary parties? They are listed as wedding venues, but it doesn’t have to be a wedding! Search by location.
4. Celebrate on the high seas – while still in port
Combine your party to remember with a little bit of British history on board Brunel’s SS Great Britain. Set in the stunning Bristol harbour-side, your party will definitely be one to remember in these surroundings! And a nautically themed luxury party invitation would set the scene brilliantly
5. A chateau with a difference – without crossing the Channel!
Get the party started in style in a chateau, not in France, but…. Angelsey! It’s a truly wonderful fairytale setting where your party guests can stay and make a weekend of your event, as it’s also a fabulous hotel! Escape from it all and be the belle of the ball!
6. A fort with wonderful sea views
This venue would make an unforgettable party – 360 degree views! And that’s exactly what you get with Solent Forts. You can even stay, so you and your guests can truly experience a night to remember at your birthday or anniversary party in a location that’s pretty hard to beat!
7. A marquee with a difference
Marquees make great party venues as you can put them in your garden, if you’re lucky enough, or in some amazing locations. But rather than a traditional marquee, why not try something a little different with a tipi? The range of styles available is increasing every year and they look extremely gorgeous in the summer, when beautifully decorated with flowers and fairy lights. There is a huge range of companies now offering tipi tents for events of all kinds.
8. Experience the beauty nature in the middle of the Cotswolds
Although it does come across as mainly a wedding venue, parties of any sort can be enjoyed here. Plus there’s a great choice of local accommodation available, allowing you and your guests to party the night away without any worries at all. And such a venue allows you to be extremely creative with your invitations too!
9. Party in a ruined castles and historical settings
Luckily, just as the National Trust allows you to party in their locations, so do English Heritage. Locations across the UK allow you to party-on-down in castle ruins with some awesome views.
10. Party in the rain forest and beyond
This amazing location allows party goers to experience this truly wonderful environment. Many of the buildings can be hired and there are many options available to accommodate different sized parties. As this photo shows, the night-time experience is something to behold and won’t be an evening you or your guests will forget in a hurry!
It has been a real eye opener to research this latest blog and see some truly different venues. Each one is unique in their own special way and we are now desperate to find a reason to party away with our nearest and dearest friends and family!
So, when you’ve found the party venue to set your pulse racing, don’t forget to set the tone with a stunning invitation that will ensure they say ‘yes’ and come along for a fabulous party!
