I can't think of a better time to say "I do" than New Year's Eve. You're making a commitment/resolution to have and to hold, as well as starting a brand new year with your one and only. Plus, it's great for your guests too, as they'll already be in the party mood and your wedding will give them the perfect celebration to attend without having to worry about navigating overcrowded bars.
And since NYE is a totally glam affair, you can incorporate all the glitter, confetti, and luxurious colors into your theme without hesitation. "Too much glitter?" won't be something you'll utter for a New Year's Eve wedding.
Don't be afraid to go big when planning your end of the year wedding. Give you and your guests a party to remember with these New Year's Eve wedding ideas.
Bring on the Bubbly
Weddings are already known for champagne toasts, but a NYE wedding calls for something grander. Think The Great Gatsby's champagne tower or a bubbly bar with an array of champagne cocktails for your guests to choose from. You could even bring in a mixologist to mix up some sparkling concoctions to honor the new year and, of course, love!
Puttin' on the Ritz
A New Year's Eve wedding is the perfect time to shine and go all out with your bridal attire. Think elegant and glamorous. Our Adelia and Cinnamon dresses are some of our favorite picks for the big day. The mermaid silhouette is super chic and the detailing, like the lace and ruffles, offer major luxe style.
Since your guests are choosing to spend their last day of the year at your party, it's only right to treat them with goodies to help them start their new year off right. Allocate a little extra budget to the favors and welcome bags and surprise your nearest and dearest with something like a cookbook with healthy and delicious recipes inside, massage gift cards, or inspiring daily planners. Anything you think will help them get a great start to the new year.
Bring the resolution making tradition into your wedding by incorporating something like a wishing well, a resolution guestbook or jar, or a lantern ritual where guests pin their new year's wishes onto an illuminated paper lantern and then let it float away.
All that Glitters
Glitter, confetti, and all things sparkly is the name of the New Year's Eve game. Go all out with confetti poppers, sparklers, sequined table cloths, glitter-dipped champagne glasses, and a glam cake that would make Gatsby envious.
Let the Ball Drop
Here's one time when you actually want to drop the ball! Guests will probably expect a countdown to midnight, and why not? Ask your DJ to play a midnight party track and drop a live ball (covered in crystals!), balloons, or confetti as everyone rings in the new year.
