Horay!  I think your guests will be in party mode since it’s New Years Eve so you will probably have a rockin’ wedding!

Congrats!! I’m getting married this NYE. It’s such an exciting date to get married on. A couple of tips… Book early! Not only are you competing with other brides for vendors and venues but also with NYE parties. Also make sure you tell those you definitely want there about the date early so they know not to make travel plans that time of year. But it is super exciting and will be here before you know it. Good luck with everything!!

We are passing out new years eve hats, noise makers and things like that at 11:30, a projection screen at 11:55 will come down with a live broadcast of times square and a balloon drop at midnight…..

We are also have butler passed champagne at the entrance to our ceremony.

What ideas have you come up with?

You’re not odd! Fiance and I had picked our wedding date before we got engaged. Let’s just say, I wasn’t a very patient waiting bee. And looking back, I think Fiance was getting excited to propose because he was the one bringing things up about our wedding around the time I think he bought the ring.

By The Way I think a NYE party is a great idea!! We thought about it too, but the extra fees made it out of our budget Frown

I think that’s a little high if you aren’t doing dinner. We are having at ours at a nice hotel, we are having a five course sit down dinner, full premium bar for five hours, welcome champagne, and a late night burger bar and French fry bar, for 100 people with all taxes it is $13,000. It includes any color linens, projection screen and the presidential suite for us the night of the wedding. 

 

The venue did not charge more for us due to it being new years eve, but lots of other people do have an extra fee, $100-$200 more.

Oh, I love your colors. Our color is black, just black. We will have all black chivari chairs with all black linens. Lots of clear glass and white candles, and all white flowers. We wanted the dinner to be very formal, it’s kind of a copy of an amazing five course meal we had at this French restaurant right after we got engaged. After dinner we will turn on some dark purple uplighting to add a little color to the reception.
