What better way to begin a new year than with your brand new husband or wife? A New Year’s Eve wedding is a wonderful way to end a year with love and begin a new one with a new life. Today we’re sharing ideas for a glam New Year’s Eve wedding.
A Glitzy Gold and Black Palette
A New Year’s Eve wedding is the perfect way to end your year with a bang – a night full of glitz and glam. This means going all out with the decor and details of your wedding day.
Set the tone for your New Year’s Eve Wedding with invitations that let guests know how much fun they’re going to have at your party. Fun fonts, gorgeous paper and gold foiling will all make a wonderful first impression for your party.
For the rest of your wedding details and decor, stick to a color palette of glittering golds, blacks and some shimmery silver to create a party theme that will feel fancy and intimate
Once your color palette is set, have your decor follow suit. All the way down to the plates and napkins, make sure everything carries colors from your palette to create a cohesive and well thought out look.
Romantic Lighting and Glam Decor
A New Year’s Eve wedding is all about romance, so use your lighting and decor to make your space feel as romantic as possible.
Low lighting is the key to a romantic and intimate setting. Keep the lights down low and illuminate the space with lanterns filled with tiny twinkle lights. On the tables, make sure there are plenty of candles burning to add a warm glow, and strings of cafe lights or twinkle lights lining the ceiling will add the perfect amount of light without being too bright.
For your decor, go glam! Pull together a look that has a glamorous feel with a few art deco style details. Geometric touches add a bit of pattern and structure to the theme, and a few vintage pieces here and there add to the overall glitzy feel of the evening. Add a few vintage clocks to your tables – they’re perfect for a countdown-inspired wedding!
A Midnight Toast
Speaking of the countdown, don’t forget the midnight toast! Like any great New Year’s Eve party, make a big deal out of the countdown. Once the clock strikes midnight you can share a special kiss as the new Mr. and Mrs. as confetti is thrown, noisemakers are being blown and everyone is toasting to the New Year. What a special way to celebrate ‘I Do!’.
