New Year’s Wedding Details Done Right

Champagne, fireworks and celebrations every anniversary?  A lifetime of beautiful lights and parties each year, not to mention the next day off of work?  Yes, please! Plus, your guests will love having your union as the special event of the evening.

With so many beautiful details around a New Year’s Eve event, it’s no wonder it is one of the most spectacular days to get married.  Here are some top tips to have the most wonderful New Year’s Eve wedding.

Trending Winter Wedding Colors

Winter weddings often mean vibrant color, but New Year’s Eve offers the chance to either explore a lustrous palette or opt for neutrals—and sparkle!  White, gold and black + glitter + confetti = a night to remember.  Remember: metallics work as neutrals.

Metallics are also super easy to coordinate—bronzes, silvers, golds and champagne-colored layers mix well with white and black details.  You can add a creative pattern, such as a houndstooth or black-white-diamond-checkered accents to the floor, banners or place settings, to break up the sparkle and provide a little grounding.

Black tie and New Year’s Eve play together perfectly, but you can also opt for a more casual feel, without skipping on the glitz.  For a less formal event, let your bridesmaids choose different dresses in your theme color scheme.

If you prefer velvety colors and textures over glitter, opt for wintery cool teals or luscious warm reds.

Wedding Sparkles

A New Year’s Eve wedding is the perfect excuse for luxurious details. A champagne tower, an ice sculpture or a gilded cake make your day shine; not to mention New Year’s Eve staples, which are easy to find (and therefore save on costs) such as spray confetti, large-scale lettering or a balloon drop.

If it’s in your budget, make the memories last for your guests with personalized champagne flutes—they’ll toast to you every time they use them thereafter.

Wedding Timeline

“Time” can also be a special part of a New Year’s Eve event; consider including timepieces in your decor.  Avoid pocket watches, if you don’t want an “Alice and Wonderland”-looking event.  Vintage timepieces or printed clocks can add to the countdown ambiance.

Your own timing will also make for a spectacular evening.  Do you want to be wed solidly on the 31st, or right as the countdown happens?  Work out the details in advance and rehearse if you want to finish your vows before those last 10 seconds—cutting it close can add to the energy of your evening, but you don’t want to rush those special vows.

We hope your New Year’s Eve wedding brings you all that shines for a bright future together—and plenty of fireworks!
