Rear Mounting ws2812s (Questions/Advice)

I am working on a project and I want to use ws2812s diffused by the circuit board, which will involve either mounting them upside down or "oreo" construction. I want to avoid a multi-board assemble, so I am curious if anyone has any advice on mounting ws2812 leds upside down, or any advice on rear/reverse mounting any led. Do I need to do anything special to the pads? What soldering technique is recommended?
