Happy New Years Eve!

New Years Eve weddings have to be one of the coolest ideas ever. The date works on so many levels: it’s a chance to ring in the new year as newlyweds, an opportunity to throw the biggest NYE bash ever, and since the date usually falls on any day (not just a weekend), you can save money AND most of your guests have the next day off of work. Win, win, win. For a New Years Eve wedding, the color palette is usually white and metallic, like gold or silver; black is added as a sophisticated, elegant look. To inspire you, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite festive New Years Eve wedding ideas for you today. Which one is your favorite? I love the confetti shooter in #10!

10. Confetti Poppers for Grand Exit

Is there anything more festive on a New Years Eve wedding than confetti? Have guests shoot confetti from these as you’re exiting your ceremony space (given your venue says its okay).

Chicago Urban Art Society Wedding: Kristi + David!

This Chicago Urban Art Society wedding is gorgeous! Meet the breathtaking bride Kristi and her handsome husband David. Their Chicago wedding was this past August and it’s filled with amazing DIY details. The wedding’s personalized details included a chic wooden sign, romantic lighting, and handmade banner cake topper. Kristi looked stunning in her dress! Her gold colored jewelry and flower hairpiece are so alluring. Their wedding at the Chicago Urban Art Society was photographed by Bri, from Bri McDaniel Photography. See the lovely photos…

Bri tells us, “They set up a really fun photo booth with a neat back drop. It stands out to me because I am used to seeing photo booths with plain backdrops. I also loved the ceremony backdrop. It was shredded fabric, and very unique. They painted and sprayed coke and wine bottles for their table decor. They also had pictures of themselves strung up on a wall. It was so cute and really gave me insight into their cute love story.”
