New Year’s Eve is known for its fun and festive atmosphere and for the celebration of new beginnings. It’s the perfect time to exchange your vows and ring in the New Year as a married couple! While June tends to be one of the most popular months for weddings, the Flutter FETTI Team is seeing a New Year’s Eve wedding trend. Make your wedding the party of the year with one of these five fabulous New Year’s Eve wedding ideas:
1. Resolution Table Numbers
Instead of traditional table numbers, switch it up with “Resolution Numbers”. Each table will be labeled with a Resolution Number and a resolution. For example, Resolution No. 6 “May we find love, laughter and happily ever after.” Write your own resolutions or use some of your favorite quotes.
2. Mini Champagne Wedding Favors
Nothing says New Year’s Eve like champagne! Your guests will absolutely love mini champagne bottles as their wedding favor. Print up and attach cards that say, “Pop, Fizz, Drink”, “Drink Me”, or a simple “Thank You”. Add a paper straw tied on with coordinating ribbon – mix it up with polka dot, chevron, and striped straws in black and white or gold and white. Cheers to the happy couple!
3. Create a Confetti Bar
The excitement builds as the countdown gets closer. Picture the clock striking midnight and your guests joyously showering you with elegant confetti. The moment will not only be breathtaking, but a fabulous photo opportunity. Create your very own Confetti Bar by setting up a table specifically for (you guessed it) confetti! Use loose confetti to scatter around the table and to fill various sized decorative glass jars, hang a “Confetti Bar” sign or banner above the table, and lay out confetti launchers along with a framed instruction guide. Couples love using an assortment of our FETTI Launchers at their Confetti Bar. Options include our 14” “Hand Flick” FETTI Launcher filled with white corkscrews in a gold holographic wrapped tube, our 6” Wedding “Hand Flick” Confetti Launcher with all white confetti in an elegant filigree decorated tube, and our 14” Confetti Sticks with white tissue and silver metallic Flutter FETTI in a silver holographic wrapped tube. As guests enter the reception, have your ushers make sure that everyone knows about and visits the Confetti Bar. If you’re having a band or DJ, they can also make an announcement about when and how to use the FETTI launchers. It’s a wonderful way for everyone to be a part of the big day!
4. Picture Your Future – Photo Booth Fun
Guests can ham it up in your wedding photo booth. Create a sign outside of the booth that says “Picture Your Future”. Place a variety of cardstock New Year’s Eve themed props (the props are attached to wooden rods to hold) for guests to use for the ultimate photo booth fun. Use props like hats, champagne glasses, Happy New Year signs, mustaches, bow ties, and horns. Glitter makes the props even more glam!
5. Champagne Cork Place Card Holders
Conventional place cards be gone! Your champagne cork place card holders tie in marvelously with your New Year’s Eve wedding theme. You can make these place cards by carefully scoring a horizontal line with an x-acto knife. Make sure that your cut is deep enough to hold the name card in place. Ask friends and family to collect their bubbly corks or talk to your local restaurant about saving them.
