What do you think about NYE weddings?
We would have to rent a hotel instead of an estate (save a ton of money) and do it all inside because obviously NYE in New England is not an outdoor day!
I was thinking I could do pink yellow and some silver for my colors. We’d still have the same foods and carnival theme stuff just indoors.
I thought NYE might add to the theme too.

i think carnival theme would be harder to “get” if it were indoors. also, are you prepared that a lot of people may not come?

@Mrs. Meowerson: haha a lot of people not coming would be preferable (ooops did I say that out loud)
Yeah, I guess it would be harder to “get” inside.

@SoontobeMrsA: I don’t know… if you did the decorations right, you could make it work.
One thing about inside: the food won’t melt in the summer, people won’t get sweaty/too cold, and you don’t have to worry about rain. 😉 Unless you’re having a big top and lots of tents, then you’re safe from almost every problem imaginable! LOL!

I’ve never been to a NYE wedding but I think that would be freakin’ awesome! Some holidays are a pain in the ass to attend a wedding on but I dont think NYE is one of them. Most people are looking for something fun to do and what would be more fun than a carnival wedding? Um, nothing!
Do you plan to offer an open/limited bar? That’s the only issue that I could potentially see. Guests invited to a NYE wedding would more than likely want to drink for free (I know I would).

🙁 I hate holiday weddings. lol I’m sorry, but I never go. I want to celebrate the new year with my family.

We’ll have some sort of Open bar (most likely based on consumption because our guests aren’t huge drinkers)
I’m totally inspired by Lindsay1231’s wedding. It looked so fun!

I love the idea of NYE weddings but I’m not sure it coincides with your theme. I think they’re just two really opposite things and for your theme to really “work”, it should be warm and outside to get the full effect. I just see your wedding with this big great tent and all these bright colors and cotton candy and popcorn and summer-ish things 🙂
Plus, I have plans on NYE 🙁

i can definitely see people drinking more at a NYE wedding than a regular one…

I agree with CaitMarae ! If you did the decorations right…. oh and the people will really be in a great mood and want to dance and celebrate because they found something cool to do for NYE.

okay, i actually love the idea of a carnival/ nye wedding! i think they both scream opulence, fun, and celebration.
i agree with a few other (one other?) pp about the colors, though – maybe tones of silver and other glittery colors could work better to bring both the holiday and the theme in line? pink and yellow are great carnival colors, but maybe not for nye.
i don’t think the indoors thing is a huge issue, though; with the right decor, you could make it look fabulous.

I like NYE weddings and I love your carnival theme but I think both at once is a little theme overload

I feel like carnival fits so much better with an outdoor, warm weather wedding. I think you’d be able to do a lot more with it if you weren’t restricted by the indoors and winter weather.

we were actualy planning on doing a NYE wedding and everyone loved the idea.
i just think that doing a carnival thing might be kind of hard indoors? you would be able to get the whole “vibe” so much better if you had a big grassy area!
but i mean, come on. it’s your wedding. do whatever the eff you want and don’t feel bad about it.

actually, now that i think about it…if it were me i would either choose to do an elegant, celebratory NYE wedding OR a carnival wedding. not both.
