A New Year’s Eve wedding is such a good idea for many people who are ready for being an official couple at the beginning of the year. A lot of people have the next day off. Everyone is in the mood to party. And your guests will definitely love that they have plans for the occasion, without having to navigate a packed bart. It’s exciting, it’s glamorous and it’s full of revelry. But New Year’s Eve weddings are special, and need to be treated as such. So we’ve come up with 10 must-haves for throwing your bash on the biggest party night of the year.

1. The Late Bar

an amazing way to treat your guests to a late-night snack.

While here Irish weddings always go on ’til the wee hours, and a wedding’s not a wedding unless the couple have arranged for a late licence on the bar.

But in the US and UK many weddings are wrapped up by midnight, and it’s often the venue’s policy that no liquor is served past a certain time. If you’re ready to get married on New Year’s Eve, ensure you can have your venue, some staff, and the bar until at least 2am – your guests will be expecting a late night party.

You may want to consult with your DJ, photographer, photobooth company and any other vendors about staying past the countdown on NYE too.

2. A Slew of Sparklers

This one is a no brainer, but a NYE wedding, needs an almighty sparkler send off. But you don’t need to limit it to the end of the night; leave indoor sparklers on the tables for guests to get into the celebratory spirit from the beginning, serve desserts with sparklers already in them, or maybe even a flaming cocktail for added drama.

If your budget allows, you could opt for a fireworks display – nothing else rings in the new year with quite the same wow factor.

3. Abundant Bubbly

The Italian sparkling wine is now used to toast the bride and groom at 63% of weddings, with just 8% choosing champagne

Another no brainer if you ask us, but New Year’s weddings need copious bubbly. It might be pricey to serve Champagne all night, Cava, Proscecco, or a fizzy cocktail toast at midnight, will work just as well.

For a really glamorous focal point, you could talk to your caterer about creating a Champagne tower with old-school babycham glasses – if you’re not dessert fans, pouring your own tower would make such a luxe alternative to cutting the cake.

4. All That Glitters

Toying with the idea of a sequin wedding dress? A New Year’s Eve wedding is the ultimate occasion to pull it off. A party on the 31st of December should be loaded with sparkle!

From the sequinned table cloths, to the glittery dipped feathers, with a bit touch of gold on your glassware to all-out glitter in your decorations, if you’re ever going to throw a bash that twinkles and glows, New Year’s Eve is the night to do it.

Keep it classy, by pairing gold sparkle with whites, blacks, beige and blush for a luxuriously glimmering finish.

5. Prop Party

Glitter & Glam Confetti Push-Pop

There are lots of little touches you can add to your party beside the sparkles to remind your guests it’s New Year’s Eve. While the 2015 glasses and dodgy hats can be a little tacky, lots of Etsy sellers and decoration vendors create chic versions, that will match the palette of your wedding. You could also add year-end photobooth props, confetti poppers and stylish party horns into the mix.

6. A Glamorous Location

New Year’s Eve can often be one of the most glamorous nights of the year, when revellers really push the boat out with what they wear and where they go – glitzy parties, black-tie soirees and lavish dinners.

To add the same instant luxury to your wedding, opt to host it somewhere really special. While we love a barn wedding or vineyard backdrop in the summer time, NYE calls for something grander. Think a party on a boat with a show-stopping skyline view, and also a rooftop bash over the city, or the bagging the keys to a private manor for one raucous house party.

7. A Resolute Idea

Everyone knows the new year is a time to make resolutions, plans, and aspirations for the year ahead. And we think incorporating them into your wedding is a lovely touch, and allows your guests a chance at their own fresh beginning on your wedding day.

You could have a DIY wishing well or a resolution jar, or you could turn it into something fun and interactive, like getting your guests to write their resolutions on chalkboard for the photobooth, or pinning their wish for the new year on a paper lantern and letting it float away.

Every culture has its own traditions for ringing in the new year, so find one that means something to you both, and share it with your guests.

8. Babysitter’s Club

If you want your guests with kids to be the last ones standing with you on the dancefloor at the end of the night, organising some babysitters is a really thoughtful  gesture.

If you have accommodation onsite or nearby, organise for one or several reputable babysitters to look after any wee one guests once it’s past bedtime. This will allow you more options in your choice of late night venue, the kids will have an NYE slumber party, and parents among your guests will have piece of mind, while they party down.

9. The Getaway Car

Ever tried to get a taxi on New Year’s Eve? It sucks. Don’t let the end of the night be a dampener for your guests who are trying to get home in the early hours of the new year.

If you’re getting married in the city, or if some of your guests will be staying away from your venue, try to organise transport in advance to make their journey home as smooth as possible. Whether it’s a big bus dropping all your guests home, or having a pre-booking with some local cab companies, this thoughtful foresight will be massively appreciated.

10. A Plan for Countdown

So you’ve booked the late bar, bought the sparklers in bulk, and have enough bubbly to fill a swimming pool – you still need to hatch a plan of action for midnight.

Your guests will at the very least be expecting some kind of countdown crescendo, or else you might be partying so hard, you realise too late that it’s five past midnight! Chat to your venue co-ordinator or DJ about creating something special for the moment, and make sure someone with a mic will be on-hand to announce the countdown.

We love the idea of a big balloon drop, but a killer party track at midnight would be just as fun.
