Hi Lovebirds!

This week we are finishing up our mini-blog series focusing on crafting a modern take on seasonally themed weddings with New Years Eve. A wedding celebration that goes strong until midnight can be difficult to execute, but there are many of fun ways to keep your guests partying all night long! We love a fun New Years celebration and have put together some ways that you can implement a NYE wedding without going over the top!

Cuisine & Cocktails

A NYE wedding reception calls for some classic late night snacks and fun festive drinks! Whether it be a fancy carving station, tacos or fries, make sure guests have enough to snack on well into the new year. And don’t forget the drinks! There are many creative ways to incorporate the sparkling new year into your drink selection to keep guests hydrated (or dehydrated) all night long. Oh, and no NYE wedding would be complete without a toast at midnight!

Decor

Your color pallet of choice can really emphasize that romantic yet fun New Years Eve wedding of your dreams. We suggest using metallics such as gold and sparkles to contrast the darker tones often used for new years or late night weddings! New Years Eve often calls for confetti and balloon drops. Without going all in on these items, we found creative ways to still incorporate them into your NYE wedding.

Guest Experience

Lastly, we want to ensure that you and your guests have the best time at your wedding.. If you are trying to stick it out till midnight, the guest experience can be the most crucial. We love a long lasting dance party and photo booth! It can also be fun to incorporate traditional NYE festivities with party horns and sparklers! Another great idea would be to gift your guests with mini champagne bottles as your wedding favor.
