I am thinking about getting married on January 1st, 2010. Will having a new years day wedding affect availability of vendors and such? I already talked to a florist and she said they are usually closed on that date? Is anyone else thinking of a new years day wedding?

I think it would be a really neat wedding date, and lots of symbolism (like the whole “fresh beginnings” kind of deal) but it may be difficult for vendors, as you’ve mentioned. I’d check around with some vendors locally to get a good idea =)

I am getting married on New Years Day!
Trust me, I got tooons of mixed emotions about it… not so much with friends/family and it being a holiday (everyone is soo excited and keeps telling me so) But people also told me that I might have a hard time finding vendors.
Come to find out, I haven’t had ANY trouble at all. I was worried at first, but I haven’t had any vendors tell me they wouldn’t perform their services. In fact, I’ve been able to find many different florists/photographers who were willing.. and it was actually hard for me to decide on some of them!
The only problem I ran into was the baker delivering the cake on that day. BUT, I worked with my coordinator at the hotel and she said she will take it the day before, so the baker will deliver it then.
Do it! We are doing black/white, with red roses… and the hotel/reception site will have all holiday decorations up, so it will be awesome!

My FBIL is getting married in New Zealand on Jan 1st at sunrise on a mountain!
They will be the first people to get married in the world in 2010 (as that is the first time zone) I think it is romantic and special (I am jealous that I can’t be there – it’s just too expensive for both of us to go so just the Mr is going)
I have been talking a lot of planning with my FSIL and she hasn’t been having any problems either but seen as it is first thing in the morning most of the deliveries are happening the night before!

I am! I got a lot of negative feedback, mostly from family but we had already set a date. Vendors were ok, but we decided to do everything ourselves, the cake, catering, invites, etc.
