What better way to ring in the New Year than by marrying your best friend?! Here at Little Bird Wedding & Event Co. we are in love with the idea of a New Year’s Eve wedding. Plus, it gives all your friends and family a reason to go out and buy some glamorous attire, and have the opportunity to ring in the new year together. Here are some creative and wonderful ways to host a New Year’s Eve wedding.
Timing is Key
New Year’s is all about the glitz and glam, and hosting your wedding on this eve is no exception. Plenty of confetti, bubbly, and delectable foods are just what you need. A great idea for this type of wedding is to start the party later in the evening, so everyone is still feeling lively at midnight. Choosing to do this not only allows for a calm morning for the entire wedding party, but also is a great way to put your own spin on the traditional sit-down meal. We love taking traditional elements and personalizing them here at Little Bird Wedding & Event Co., and think Food Stations are a great way to get your guests up, interacting, and enjoying some wonderful food of your choice - use your creativity and let’s do something unique! Consider an elegant seafood bar complete with all your seafood favourites, or a create-your-own crostini bar.
Add something special
When else is it entirely acceptable to have confetti and glitter everywhere?! Why not hang a sparkly piñata for your guests to enjoy, or create a photo booth backdrop that shines bright like a diamond. Creating a unique atmosphere is key to a New Year’s event - let’s create something that has your guests talking for years to come! Having a live band is another great way of getting people involved and is a sure way to please the crowd. But remember - if you want your New Year’s Even wedding to be everything and more, be sure to book vendors early - and we mean early - as this is a popular night for hire!
Ensure your guests are well prepared for midnight, with their confetti poppers in hands. Another great idea is for the couple to be sent off with a grand exit with sparklers at the end of the night. What’s a New Year’s without a grand celebration to top the evening of?! It’s also important to consider your venue for this type of wedding - if it is a fair distance from the city, ensure you have proper transportation for guests. We all know that hailing a cab on New Year’s could take hours. A shuttle bus is a great alternative to taxis or Ubers, and your guests are sure to appreciate the gesture.
We love New Year’s weddings and can’t wait to see how couples are customizing this fabulous night! Plus, think how fun the photos will be to look back on - what a way to ring in the new year!
