With the end of 2022 upon us, some couples will be tying the knot as we welcome 2023! Getting married on New Year’s Eve is a very memorable way to start a new year, and is the perfect excuse to party twice as hard. Your guests will be entertained and excited as you count down together to celebrate both events! If you are planning a New Year’s Eve wedding, this post has tons of great ideas and inspiration to make your celebration memorable.
For your invitation artwork, use colours like black, gold, and silver. Include festive details like champagne bottles, fireworks, and glitter for the ultimate introduction to your New Year’s Eve celebration!

What’s a party without a disco ball? During your evening reception, these will look amazing on your dance floor and get your guests in the party mood.
As midnight approaches, you will want to have made a plan with your DJ or MC to do an interactive countdown so you don’t miss the big moment! One popular idea is using a big projector screen to show a countdown clock.
Once midnight strikes, it’s time to pop the champagne for a toast! A champagne tower is a luxurious twist to a New Year’s Celebration, that is also perfect for your wedding.
