"That is why they want a fantastic after-party so they can relax just like any other happy couple.
"They will be driven from the banquet to St James’ Palace where Kate will change out of her wedding dress and William will swap his uniform for something much less formal.
"Then they will return to Buckingham Palace for the next stage, hosted by proud dad Prince Charles.
"They want the dance floor rammed and there will be a mix of music - including some Dizzee Rascal for Will," the source added.
