Happy Almost 2015, Lovelies!
New Year’s Eve is tomorrow and we are super excited to ring in 2015 with a wedding! This time of year is filled with sparkly celebrations, and today we’re going to share some ideas on how to incorporate these motifs into your wedding invitations, décor, attire and cuisine. Engagement season is officially upon us and for all you new bride-to-be’s out there looking for fab and fresh trends, here is why a New Year’s wedding is a lovely little option to consider.
For a New Year’s wedding, you can get away with a little more glitz and glamor than other times of the year. Garner a festive feel while maintaining the romance of your special day with glittery gold invites! We love the look of incorporating soft velum or bold, matte colors to allow the metallic elements to shine. Balance vibrant golds and silvers with soft patterns like dots or flowers. Your invitations give guests an idea of what to expect on your wedding day, so use similar colors and themes for a cohesive aesthetic.
Create the perfect scenario for your first New Year’s kiss with the love of your life with glowing decorations and a flirty, fun dress. New Year’s Eve is notorious for over the top visuals, so don’t be afraid to go crazy with sparkly elements throughout your celebration. Mix metals, and use lots of candles and light to give an ambience of drama and excitement. For your wedding dress, experiment with something short, sequined and unique! Don’t forget to balance all of this shimmer with muted and subtle neutrals to not give too much of a visual overload for your guests.
To really kick things up a notch, try integrating sparkle into your food and beverage options! Edible glitter and gold flakes are easy to find (at your local grocery store or crafts supplies store) and really add that extra glint of something special to the look of your wedding! Take your celebratory bubbly to the next level with glittery sugar-rimmed glasses. Not feelin’ the edible toppings? Use glasses with gold details or metallic cake trays and decorations for the same visual appeal.
New Year’s Eve weddings can be absolutely gorgeous. It’s a time of new beginnings, and allows you and your partner to start your married life on a fresh page. Utilize the world-wide excitement of the day while holding onto the sweet softness of the intimate relationship you share. Do this by playing with sparkle and metallics, while balancing with warmth and florals from your invites to your decorations and dress to even your food. Congratulations to any newly engaged couples and Happy New Year to all!
