How To Create a New Year’s Eve Themed Wedding
Winter weddings are great but have you considered a New Year’s Eve wedding?
Just think how great it would be to combine your wedding celebrations with New Year celebrations. With the added bonus that neither of you will ever forget your wedding anniversary!
If you plan to have a New Year’s Eve wedding then you should make sure that the look and feel of your wedding is appropriate. You will be holding the last party of the year and the first party of the New Year and with nothing to get up for on January the 1st your guests are sure to enjoy every minute of your big day.
The reason why so many people love New Years Eve themed weddings is that there are so many wonderful ways to add that New Year feeling to your wedding party. So, here are some of our favourite ways of creating New Year’s Eve themed weddings that will be truly unforgettable.
Silver sparkles and golden glitter – Every new years wedding party has to have glitter and sparkle! And there are so many opportunities to add them to a New Year’s eve themed wedding. These include having gold and silver balloons, table decorations, streamers, wedding favours, and you can even have a gold and silver themed wedding cake;
Sparklers and Fireworks – Nothing says ‘lets party’ like a firework display. Midnight fireworks will see in the New Year perfectly and sparklers and perhaps a warming beverage or two are nice touches for any wintry display;
A special new years eve champagne cocktail – Every wedding needs to be celebrated with a drop or two of Champaign. So, what could be better than your guests toasting the new couple, and the coming year, with your own New Years Eve champagne cocktail? (Named after the bride and groom, naturally);
Ask the band to play new years eve themed songs – whether your favourite new year’s eve song is Abba’s “Happy New Year”, U2’s “New Year’s Day”, “Auld Lang Syne” by Mariah Carey or one of the many other new year ‘anthems’ out there, you can be sure that your guest will love each and every one of them;
Give guests gold and silver party poppers and confetti cannons to set off at midnight – make your celebration of the New Year go with a bang! Just before the clock strikes 12, give your guests the glitteriest and glitziest party poppers and confetti cannons you can find;
Champagne tower – Champagne towers are perfect for the New Year’s Eve toast. They are easy to set up and look absolutely fabulous. Use coupe Champagne glasses and magnums or larger Champagne bottles for best results;
New Years Eve Photo booth – these are all the rage at the moment and are lots of fun, too. To give your booth that New Year’s Eve theme use the glitziest backgrounds for the photo booth available;
Sparkling, sequinned wedding dress – You will love this one! Make sure the bride and all your bridesmaids wear the sparkliest sequinned dresses ever;
Hire a wedding bagpiper to play in the New Year – You don’t have to be from Scotland to appreciate this one! A piper in full highland dress adds a lot of atmosphere to proceedings and there is nothing quite like celebrating the arrival of Midnight to the sound of traditional bagpipe music;
