Any wedding day is a special time for the happy couple, but when the date is set for New Year’s Eve it adds a level of fun and excitement in the countdown to the ceremony!
Few guests will forget the date of New Year’s Eve weddings! And for many couples the wedding date may serve as a signature part of the décor. The invitation can inform guests that the couple will exchange vows at the stroke of midnight or to join them as they countdown to leaving their single lives behind. So whether using the date or a clock theme, guests will be hard pressed not to remember this important event!
Couples planning to say “I do” on New Year’s Eve are looking to party on their big day and to celebrate their new union as they usher in a new year. It’s a festive time, often with lots of sparkle, glitz and glamour. Silver and gold are popular colors for wedding attire and venue décor and the sparkly the better! Some opt to add the shimmer of multi-color glitter for a more colorful touch. It all works! Especially if it’s an evening affair, after-five formal wear adds an extra touch of glamour and glitz. It’s time to dress up and strut in the New Year!
Ring in the New Year and toast the newlyweds with a classic champagne toast. A tower of champagne glasses or a champagne fountain will create an elegant statement during the reception. The couple may select to have miniature bottles of the bubbly inscribed with their names as favors for guests to take home and enjoy.
Couples may want to celebrate in grand fashion with a fireworks display when the clock strikes midnight! Make confetti and other noisemakers available to shower the new Mr. and Mrs. with good wishes. The appearance of fireworks can be incorporated in a number of ways like cupcake toppers made to look like sparklers or even on the wedding cake!
Try incorporating a balloon drop to bring in the New Year with countdown, similar to the ball drop in Times Square. The balloons can also be inscribed with the couple’s names and the wedding date so be sure to snag one as a little souvenir.
Here’s an idea for the New Year’s Eve themed wedding – New Year’s resolutions for the happy couple. Guests can share a resolution for the bride and groom to be accomplished during the year. Then next year they can look back to see what they’ve accomplished during the first year of marriage.
A New Year’s Eve wedding should include high energy and tons of great music by the DJ for dancing all night and into the next day to celebrate the New Year and the new couple!
