To get even more inspired than you already are, take a peak at some of our favorite NYE wedding moments and get ready to check that calendar for 2019!

1.  Sequins, Sequins and More Sequins

We’re always looking for an excuse to wear sequins and a New Year’s Eve wedding is pretty much the epitome of sparkle and shine. Channel your inner golden girl and have your bridesmaids wear sequined dresses. The glitz and glamour of it all will make them feel extra special and it’ll look amazing next to your classic white gown in photos. Plus, your bridesmaids will be extra grateful to you for letting them have a gown that they can actually wear again!

2. Countdown In Style

We love the idea of having a clock as the centerpiece of each table so that guests can count down to midnight together.

3. Skip Your Standard Photobooth 

A NYE wedding gives you the opportunity to have some photo fun with balloons. Have your guests hold balloons from the past year for photos and then at midnight let them go to symbolically “let go” of the past year.

4. A Timeless Cake 

Take a departure from your typical tiered cake and instead opt for something that ties in with your New Years theme. Not only is this cake a real showstopper, but it also makes a great Instagram moment for your guests… who doesn’t love a good ‘gram moment?

5. Make an Exit

Hand out sparklers for each guest to light the way as you leave your reception. It definitely beats having rice thrown at you, and it makes for a pretty amazing photo.

6. New Year’s Resolutions

Play into your holiday theme by having New Year’s resolutions on the table cards. These can be serious, inspiring or funny depending on your and your future husbands’ personality. They’re a fun way to tie in your theme and to give guests some food for thought or a conversation starter at dinner!

7. Glamorous Table Runners

Make each table shine with gold sequined table runners. These standout table runners will really set the tone of the party and will give you a chance to play up gold accents with the tableware, place cards and flowers.

8. Party Favors

Everyone loves a good party favor, and weddings are no exception! Have a basket of party streamers and noisemakers for guests to grab for the midnight countdown.

9. Make it Themed

Halloween doesn’t have to be your only excuse to dress up; your NYE wedding can double as a masquerade party, too! We love a good themed wedding and this one takes the cake for one of our all-time favorites. Let your guests know to dress the part in your wedding invitation and have masquerade masks at each person’s chair so that everyone can take part in the fun.

10. Pop Bottles 

Bottles of bubbly serve as the perfect take-home gift for your guests. After all, there’s no better way to start the New Year off than with a champagne toast and a midnight kiss!
