It would be rude not to have a sparkling grand finale on such a wonderful occasion.

Black & Gold Gatsby Glam

Pretty predictable when it comes to a New Year’s Eve wedding, but Gatsby glamour will never go out of style. You cannot falter a classical black and gold colour scheme for its sheer elegance and drama. Plus, any excuse to don some glad rags by opting for a plush black tie affair.

The Countdown

Tick Tock… the New Year’s Eve countdown should be a main feature of your night. So, don’t forget to request that the DJ or band incorporates this into their set! Add to the atmosphere with some fun decor additions such as clock center pieces.

Glitter + Sequins Galore

Sparkle is the call of the day when it comes to fairytale winter weddings. Glitter bridesmaid gowns are the perfect way to make a statement if traditional red tones aren’t to your taste. Your wedding theme will still exude a festive aura without being Christmas overkill.

Party Balloons

Because it quite simply wouldn’t be a party without balloons!

Perfectly complementing a vintage Hollywood style bash, you can’t get more glamorous than swinging to some old school jazz.
