I think all those ideas sound awesome. Honestly, I would have no problem attending a new year’s eve wedding for someone close to me, and all I would probably “expect” is a little booze and to be able to bring my fiance. Everything else would be icing 🙂 Have fun!

Wow you’ve covered some great ideas already. I would however make the ceremony late enough that your guests can check into the hotel get ready and then come to the ceremony (transportation provided). This would also give the parents time to drop the kids off at the idea of the slumber party if you were to choose to follow your ideas.

Sounds great. If that invite came in, I’d be there

I have a similar desire for an intimate wedding, and I was shocked to discover that if you tell people that it is important to you for them to be there, they will wnt to be there. 

The slumber party and brunch ideas sounds awesome as well.

I would probably go no matter what since New Years Eve is not a big deal to me, I never even go out!

But for parents I would say having child care available would be amazing since I know it’s hard to get a sitter.  Also, maybe having the option to book a nearby hotel would be good, since taxis can also be hard to get.

@1920cottagegirl:  That sounds like a goo time. Check in between 3 and 3:30 and then gives them up to 3 hours to shower makeup and get ready if they so wish and be ready to go at 6 in the lobby. Check the check in time for your hotel but even if its later it gives people time to freshen up and drop of kids. It might be a good idea to have a little snack food in the Out of Town bags since youll be having a late dinner people. I dont think you need to do all these things but if you do wow the wedding no one will ever forget.

I would come no matter what of course, but I like a nice dinner on New Years Eve, sometimes we go out and sometimes I cook, what are you thinking of serving food wise?

@1920cottagegirl:  I would go to a NYE wedding for a close friend with no problem. Anything more than food, music and alcohol is a plus. Providing hotels and brunch is amazing and generous. This sounds like a fantastic wedding and your loved ones will be excited to be invited.

A NYE wedding sounds lovely. However, I do think you should allow people to bring a date. I’m not a fan of the +1s (and I’m not allowing many of my guests to bring one), but a NYE party seems different – most people attend those parties with a date, so I think it would be best to offer each guest a +1. That can make the budgets explode, though.

My sister had a NYE wedding and did many of the things you are planning (transporation to reception/hotel, next day brunch, morning after items- make sure water bottles!). It all worked out great and everyone had a wonderful time celebrating both the wedding & new years. Like some other comments, make sure you schedule everything late enough so there is not a bunch of downtime waiting for midnight.
