If you are ready to start your new life with your spouse-to-be, why not tie the knot during a time of new beginnings -- New Years Eve! To help you celebrate the new year and your new marriage, here is a guide to help you plan your special day!
Book Your Vendors in Advance
Vendors are not hired solely for weddings -- they are hired for holidays like New Years Eve too, which makes booking your favorite vendors in advance even more important.
Since most people are darting off to a New Years party, make sure your wedding does not start at peak traffic time. This can be stressful for both you and your guests.
Factoring In Additional Expenses
New Years Eve is a holiday, and unfortunately, labor is generally time and a half during holidays. Plus, since your wedding will likely go past midnight, this could mean even more charges. Make sure to carefully budget so these additional labor costs do not sneak up on you.
Perfect Your Timing
To ensure your party is still going full-force at midnight, adjust your wedding timeline to accommodate for a night of partying. For instance, your ceremony can start at 7pm, you can have a cocktail reception at 8pm, and then a dinner shortly afterwards. Make sure to provide your guests with snacks throughout the night to keep the energy going!
Make Midnight Memorable
Work with your band or DJ to ensure that the countdown to midnight is a high point of the night: the dance floor should be raging, a champagne should be flowing, and midnight kisses should be in effect!
