I just got a STD in the mail that is for a wedding on New Years Eve. A tad early but I guess they’re just giving their guests a heads up lol. Ceremony is starting at 6, and reception will be in a Manhattan penthouse till the wee hours of morning. It seriously sounds great and Im good friends with the bride so i know it will be amazing, but im not sure if i want to commit to that not knowing what will happen in the next few months. Without wanting to sound selfish, I just don’t know if I want to RSVP yes or keep my options open. I don’t know bees, what are your thoughts?

mrshttob: I am not one to have big plans on NYE most years so I would not have an issues with it. However, I am not sure that I could RSVP this early. You never know what may happen between now and then.

mrshttob: Personally I love the idea of a NYE wedding! If you know it will be fun I think its a great way to bring in the new year!
Do they actually require RSVP’s yet? We’re sending out STD’s soonish but we aren’t asking for rsvp’s until the actual invite is sent out!

I would definitely go, especially if it’s a good friend. NYE is always an anti-climax these days anyway, how fun to spend it with good friends and celebrating someone’s wedding. It’s just a STD anyway though, you don’t need to RSVP to a STD.

Miss_E_xx: They aren’t requiring RSVP’s yet, just an STD. So thankfully I have a bit more time to think about it before making a decision. lol

If it’s a save-the-date, it’s not an invitation yet, so you really don’t need to be worrying about how to RSVP. And I don’t think it’s early at all for them to be sending out save-the-date’s, we sent ours out around the 8-month mark, and while our wedding was a destination for many of our guests, it wasn’t on a holiday.
Personally, I’d rather not go to a wedding on New Year’s Eve. If I really liked the bride and/or groom, I would go, but I prefer to have the option to go to a concert or something that night.

It would depend on who it was. If it wasn’t someone I was super close with I probably wouldn’t. However the idea does seem pretty great. Especially a Manhattan penthouse? That just seems a little too good to pass up. At least you’ll have time to think about it before an RSVP.

mrshttob: What do you anticipate happening in the next few months that would preclude you from attending a wedding if you haven’t already made other plans?
I could see that being a concern if you are moving, or planning a vacation over Christmas/New Years, but otherwise, it sounds like a great way to bring in the New Year celebrating with friends.

I would definitely go especially if close to the bride/groom. I figure there are other New years to make and do other plans and it won’t be often that will have a NYE wedding, so I would go and enjoy it.

Yes I would go, sounds fabulous.

Sounds great to me especially here in NYC in a penthouse!

I LOVE the idea! I never have that much fun on New Years as it’s always so crowded. A private, open bar wedding – perfect!

I love to dress up and go out for NYE, I think you should go, I bet it will be a great time!

I would be down generally. Though unlike other bees, it being in manhattan makes it LESS appealing to me. A large part of the appeal of not doing the usual NYE stuff is not worrying about finding a cab or subway vomit!

Sounds fun! I’m the sort of person who doesn’t really enjoy NYE parties anyway. If I was good friends with the bride, as you are, then there would be zero chance of any NYE party being more appealing than her wedding.
