Hi All, I am glad I found this site. The minute I got engaged I knew I wanted to a NYE wedding. We are planning our NYW wedding on December 31, 2009 at the Seaview Marriot, NJ (outside of Atlantic City).
We are having it be a cool winter theme with black, white, silver and a hard to desribe plum color with most of the top eye catchers to be diamonds and pearl accents.
We are doing a live tv broadcast from times square, party hats, confetti for midnight and saving our toast for just before.
We are planning very traditional tuxes for the guys and the girls to wear this plum color with silver accesories.
I am dubbing it the diamonds and pearls reception or purple rain (reign). I love prince and I love the color purple so I couldn’t think of anything more glamourous than diamonds and pearls and white and silver, with this hint of Plum.
For favors I plan to give out my own version of my famous homemade bloodymary mix with personalized labels –New years Day is the Hair of the Dog celebration, so it fits our theme.
We are having a photobooth like the kind you see on the boardwalk with a commemorative scrap book where guests can leave their well wishes instead of a guest book.
Our centerpieces are willowbranches, spray painted silver with fairy dust with roughly 5-6 crystals hanging from the branches in a random pattern with white with pink center orchids tied on to a few of the branches. These will likely make the center piece about 4 feet tall. Our vases are clear with clear faux ice with pinkish LED lights at the bottom and about 5 votives around the base of each vase, we are finishing the vases off with a silver and white satin ribbon.
I plan to have our cake all white with fondant pearls on the cake and rhinestone "Diamond" belts around each tier, topping the cake and draping one side with the orchid we are using in the bouquets, centerpieces and boutineers.
I am incorporating my plum color into the perimeter lighting, the napkins and the bridemaids dresses.
I have so many other ideas….
But I am trying to always find more, so I scour sites for good ideas.
Good luck with all your plans, it is going to be a great New Year!
