I get carried away. Anywho, I came across some information on the OMG I’m Getting Married wedding blog, which said that many couples who get engaged around this time of year start planning their wedding to take place the following holiday season. I think it is a truly fantastic and original idea to get married on New Year’s Eve. Just think of all the extra symbolism your union will have!
New Year’s Eve is the biggest party night of the year. It’s that time when people kick back and celebrate all the things they did and didn’t do from the past year, make new resolutions for the coming year and celebrate the fact that the apocalypse didn’t arrive as the Mayans scheduled!
Plus, since New Year’s Eve is already a party-oriented day, you can simply go with the celebratory theme already in place as you begin planning your big day (and Eve!). To embrace the New Year’s spirit, bright colors and celebratory champagne toasts are a must. Adding a bit of sparkle to any color palette can easily be done by using an accent color like gold or silver. It’s a super easy way to glam up the occasion.
I say, just go crazy with your wedding theme. Take all that the most outrageous New Year’s Eve celebration has to offer and then some! You can have your guests wave sparklers as you make your exit from your ceremony, or you can hand out those confetti poppers. You could even go extra wild and turn your big night into a masked ball! And what’s a New Year’s Eve party without a champagne tower? Set one of those babies up, too!
