Because your wedding is on the biggest party night of the year, that’s exactly what your guests are going to expect- a party. Color Scheme is classic- Black, Gold, and White. Set the tone immediately with save the dates in glitter envelopes and follow up with invitations for a black-tie affair. Carry the color scheme throughout your décor, but skip the flower centerpieces this time- flowers are typical and expected. Instead, wow your guests with gold or black linens , metallic chargers , and statement pieces like a variety of clocks and large black and gold candle holders and vases. Inside the vases, put celebratory items like packets of confetti, streamers, or noise makers.
For fashion, think tuxes and black cocktail dresses. If you are a bride, let your dress be a show stopper like the Kenneth Pool Dress in the bottom right. Shoes and bouquet should be dramatic with playful details (love the calla and rose bouquet). If you’re a groom add something unexpected like the creative boutonniere in the middle right, or have all the men don pocket watches.
Entertainment is just as important- splurge on a live band if you can, get a photobooth, create a chic lounge area for guests to mingle, place a mini bottle of champagne at each setting- you get the idea. Finally, countdown with your guests and celebrate with gold confetti, streamers, and sparklers to officially commemorate the start of not only a new year, but a new life as a couple.
