So jealous – I always dreamed of having a NYE wedding but my mother is adamantly against it (she feels it’s too much pressure to put on your guests to have a wedding during the holidays) and our budget just could never accomodate it – at least the way that I would want to do it. Happy for the ladies that can pull it off, though!!

Also a NYE 2010 bride. There were some things that made it more complicated, but overall, it was a great decision. We had such an awesome time and it’s a fun anniversary to have!

@sapphirebride: Agreed. Everything ended up great.  We got so many comments on how everyone was excited to actually have plans for NYE.  Lots of people plan to do something, and then end up not, so it was a free party!

As far as people having a good time, I think this picture sums it up ๐Ÿ˜‰

@sheilad72: I am a NYE 2011 bride! We rented a mansion on the beach and are having a 120 person cocktail style reception starting at 8pm after a 7pm church ceremony. We are having the bridal party stay at the house all weekend. I’m so nervous about pulling it off though! How are your plans coming??

Whoo hooo for NYE brides!  The feedback from our guests have been mostly positive.  Most say they normally don’t have any big plans and are excited to be able to dress up and go out that night!  We’ve had a few complaints (which I found rude) but overall it sounds like everyone is so excited!  I can’t wait for the holidays to get closer to find more fun hats, glasses, props, etc. for our guests to use.

Are you all doing anything / or have done anything special for the countdown?  Did your DJ or emcee announce the countdown or did you have a monitor or clock of some sort?

@sunhat: We had our DJ announce the countdown and we all got out on the deck to see the fireworks and screamed out the countdown. We then played Auld Lang Syne and sang along (we put the lyrics on our programs).

Our ceremony started at 7:30.  Our DJ showed video of the ball dropping, waiters passed out champagne, and family passed out noisemakers and hats.  It was so much fun.

I’m also a NYE bride. 7 PM ceremony, 8PM Cocktail Hour, 9PM-2AM Reception. Passing out champagne, noisemakers and hats at midnight. For the most part friends and family are excited. We have heard some people complain that we are ruining their plans of going on vacation but I just tell them they don’t need to come then. Can’t believe it’s so close!!
