Getting married on New Year’s Eve is a bit controversial. Some invitees see it as an infringement on their one special party night of the year, while others welcome the chance to spend extra time with their family and friends before returning to work. Here at Century Diamonds? We think it’s a great idea! We decided to try to bring you over to our side with our top five reasons to have a New Year’s Eve wedding:

 

1)      Sparkle, sparkle everywhere.
Glittery bridesmaid dresses. Sparklers at your exit. Gold décor. You can literally make every part of your wedding shine. From the invitations to the spray-painted centerpieces, a New Year’s Eve wedding is the place to make every little corner feel like a piece of wonderland.

2)      You get to break up the monotony of winter.
New Year’s Eve is famous for one thing: unforgettable parties. Hosting a wedding celebration on the last day of the year will allow everyone to ignore the freezing temperatures, the slushy sidewalks, and the post-Christmas slump. NYE is guaranteed to be an affair to remember – spend a couple extra dollars on your DJ or band and everyone will stay up dancing into the wee hours!

3)      No one will forget your anniversary.
It can be hard to remember anniversaries (Quick: when did your parents get married? If you don’t know this – find out and write it down!), but a wedding that takes place on a big holiday like Halloween, the Fourth of July, or New Year’s Eve will be difficult to forget.

4)      Standard color palettes get thrown out the window.
In addition to all the sparkle from Reason #1, you also get to go a little crazy with your wedding colors. Spring weddings favor pastels, fall weddings are usually in deep warm and earthy tones, but a New Year’s Eve wedding? You can do anything! Green and gold? Yup. Red and black? Check! White, blue, silver and yellow? Go for it!

5)      New Year’s is THE symbolic “new beginning”.
When the clock strikes midnight, we tend to celebrate with a bit of “out with the old, in with the new”. But a wedding is more than just a marriage of two people – it’s a marriage of your individual histories to your future as one unit. It’s a marriage of old families and new. It’s a celebration of everything that has brought two people to this exact place, and of everything they will experience in life together. What could be more special than that?
