The 5 Best Things About New Years Eve Weddings

It’s not a very well kept secret that most people wish they could spend New Years Eve the way they do in the movies: fancy dress, nice tux, cocktail in hand, glittering ballroom, and a nonstop party. New Year’s Eve weddings provide all of that and more and that’s why we just adore them. Seriously, who is getting married the 31st who wouldn’t mind a few crashers? So here you are, the top five best things about a New Year’s Eve Wedding.


5. Decked Out

I might like to put on a front that buying a new dress and getting dressed up is a hassle, but it’s not. Other people also enjoy this charade, but the truth is, people want to put on something new or sparkly and ring in the New Year in style.


4. Open Bar

This is a no brainer. Going out on New Year’s Eve can be expensive, and for the couple the tab might prove pretty expensive, but you’ve earned your treat with your wonderful presents and presence and you can enjoy each bubbly drop of champagne.


3. After the Party

It’s the after party. It just keeps going. If the couple have planned it well, and of course they will, then the reception won’t even really get roaring until midnight and once the dance floor closes the hotel bar will provide just the right setting to let the celebrating continue.


2. All Your Favorite People in One Place

Ok, maybe not all of your favorite people. But if it’s a close friend or member of your family then it’s pretty close to all of them. You get to see old friends. You get to see distant relatives. You get to dance with cousins and grandparents and feel all warm and fuzzy. It’s the perfect way to spend the holiday.


1. Sounds Like a Plan

But the very best thing about going to a New Year’s Eve wedding is that it takes all the pressure off the holiday. You don’t have to agonize over what you are going to do or where you are going to go. You don’t have to worry that you’ll fall asleep on the couch before the ball drops. Not that I would know what that’s like ; )
