Planning a wedding is always hard work and a lot of stress. One of the biggest decisions you will make is choosing a date. However, one option you may not have considered is a New Year’s wedding. There are many benefits–your friends and family are likely off work, everyone is ready to party, and you may get a good deal on a Honeymoon. If you decide that December 31 or January 1 is the right day for your wedding, keep these tips in mind and you will be assured success.
Tips for a New Year’s Wedding:
* Reserve the venue early. Not only do you have to worry with being the first wedding to book the venue, there are likely other parties competing, too.
* If you’re planning a New Year’s Day wedding, think about doing it later in the day. Chances are that your guests may have been up late the night before and will want time to recover.
* Don’t feel obligated to make the occasion your theme or color scheme. Let your personality shine through as you make decisions.
* If you do a New Year’s Eve wedding, plan for a late night. You may want to offer a place for guests to sleep or make connections with a taxi service. More guests than usual may be drinking on this big night.
As you can see, there is a lot to think about when hosting your wedding around New Year’s. When it comes down to it, it’s really not much different than having a wedding any other day–you just already have a theme. No matter what you choose to do, relax and enjoy the big day while ringing in the new year with your new spouse!
