How To Plan A Memorable New Years Eve Wedding
Are you planning a wedding on New Year’s Eve this year? Our guide goes through some tips to help you put on an unforgettable New Year’s Eve wedding.
New Year’s Eve is one of the most popular times of the year to hold a wedding. There are many things to consider with a New Year’s Eve wedding. Compared to other times of the year, holding a New Year’s Eve wedding is not only more expensive to hold, but your invitees may be unavailable to attend.
It’s important that you and your partner have individual wedding rings for their special day. Diamond Heaven has a wide variety of men’s wedding bands and women’s wedding rings for you and your partner to choose from. Our team will make sure that you two have the perfect pair of rings to wear for your wedding ceremony.
Our guide below gives you some top tips to help you plan an unforgettable wedding on NYE.
START YOUR WEDDING PLANNING EARLY
If you are holding your wedding on New Year’s Eve, you will need to start your wedding planning early. You should list your New Year’s Eve wedding ideas in advance with your partner and whittle it down.
Having a concrete idea of what you both want will make it easier to plan out your wedding. There’s a lot to consider with planning a NYE wedding, from food and drinks to sorting out the photo booth, wedding outfits and booking a venue.
You need to make sure that you pencil in the date for your wedding as far in advance as possible with the venue. This means that your wedding can go ahead without any issues.
FACTOR IN EXTRA COSTS IN YOUR WEDDING BUDGET
Unlike other times of the year, a New Year’s Eve wedding is more expensive. As the demand for venues and suppliers is much higher, it means that you should expect to pay more.
From hiring a photographer to catering and transportation, those extra costs can eat into your wedding budget. If you are on a budget, you will need to be extra careful with how much you spend.
PLAN AROUND WEATHER CONDITIONS
Holding a NYE wedding poses its own set of weather challenges. If it snows or rains, then it’s a good idea to hold your wedding in a warm indoor venue. What you don’t want on your wedding day is you, your partner, friends and family to freeze!
ADD A COUNTDOWN TO MIDNIGHT FEATURE
If you are holding your wedding on New Year’s Eve, you could add a countdown to midnight feature. You need to make sure that you negotiate with the venue in advance if you plan to continue your wedding celebrations long after midnight.
This ensures that the wedding celebrations can continue long into the start of the New Year. You could also ask your band or DJ to do a countdown to midnight.
PROVIDE TRANSPORT FOR YOUR GUESTS
It’s a good idea to provide transportation, not just for you and the bride, but your guests too.
Instead of getting a taxi on the day, you may decide to hire a shuttle bus. This makes it easier to transport your guests from one venue to another, as taxis may be hard to get on such a busy night.
Alternatively, if you want to add some glitz and glamour to your transport arrangements, you may want to hire a limousine.
