We are under 100 days ladies!  I hope all your plans are coming along well.  I had a busy, productive weekend but still lots of things to do.  Wishing you all the best!

Sorry Bees! I’m late posting but I’m a New Year’s bride. It doesn’t seem like there are very many of us out there, which is SHOCKING!!! Nevertheless, my plans are similar to Starcharades, only pushed up an hour (venue restrictions) 6pm – Ceremony, 7pm – Cocktail hour, 8pm – Dinner, 9pm – 1am – Dancing and lots of fun!!!!

The only trouble I had was the increase cost of the DJ, but all other vendors kept their pricing the same. I also thought it was a bit challenging planning for a holidy/winter wedding over the summer months but now that the holidays are among us things have been great! I visit all the crafts stores, with holiday decor galore…Mostly Christmas, but you can easily turn Christmas into NYE by simply incorporating silvers/golds.

Countdown – we’re bringing in a flat screen to watch the ball drop, and of course the DJ will queue ol’ lang syne. Favors, will include champagne bottles and 2012 Calendars!!!! 

For all the NYE brides, What are you colors?

Hello NYE Bees!!!! Sorry, I’m delayed in posting but I have been researching sooooo many ideas about my NYE wedding. Here are a couple ideas from our upcoming wedding!!!! I look forward to hearing about what you all have done to incorporate the New Year’s spirit into your day, as well.

Btw, did I mention that I chose to get married on this day because my future hubby’s last name is JANUARY!!!!!!

I am so happy to see I have some date twins.  We are getting married on NYE and the ceremony/reception are in the same location.  The facility we are using has given us 3 rooms at no extra cost.  We will have the ceremony in one room at 7PM.  The cocktail hour is in another room at 8PM and the dinner will be served in the 3rd room at 9PM.  The reception is until 1AM. 

We are doing a “Ring in the New Year” theme.  We are giving out silver bells with our names and wedding date engraved on them.  They will be at each place setting.  We also have NYE hats and horns.  There will be a tv that comes in at 11:45 and will show the ball dropping. 

I’ve had soooo much fun planning the wedding and I can’t wait until it gets here.  My family and friends are looking forward to it and can’t wait to get dressed up.

OMG!!! What a relief to find other bees with NYE weddings. This wasn’t my first choice for a date, but I’m SUPER EXCITED about it now. I could really use some help with reception ideas though. I’ve never been to a NYE party in my life, so I really need some help. I really want to have a party not a reception.

By The Way we decided to go with the peacock theme and have incorporated some winter touches.

5 weeks from tomorrow ladies!  I’m starting to get very anxious.  I’m using this weekend to take stock, organize and make new lists.  We’ll be confirming with the vendors soon and I have this sinking feeling I’m forgetting something big.  I think once I’ve re-organized, I’ll feel much better.  Seeing all of the Christmas decor in the stores is making me even more excited!

@sheilad72:

The only thing I have left to do is finalize the decor (centerpieces table linen/runners, headtable deocr, etc). Yes, I realized that I procrastinated but with good reason….The Holidays are finally here and the stores are loaded with tons of silvers, golds, bronzes, etc/.

 

What are you guys doing for centerpieces??? I’m still undecided. I battle back and forth between keeping it more wedding-like or more New Year’s Party-esque! What do you guys think!!???!!!???

Oh hey!! I have no idea how I missed this thread, but I’m a NYE bride too! Our colors are black, white, and silver! It’s a pretty small wedding, and it’s really not very elaborate at all (sort of last-minute, damn Marine Corps lol). But I’m looking forward to it because it’s going to be SO MUCH FUN. We’re getting party favors and noise makers and there will be great music, great food, and lots of booze lol!

And think about it– now we all have a great excuse to party on NYE for the rest of our lives ๐Ÿ™‚
