Incorporate New Year's into your wedding stationery and day of templates as well. Not only will it match the time of year, it will show that no detail was left to chance. Glitter and shine are the staples of the season, and this template style with rose gold sequins and a glam font duo is the perfect design. It's minimalist and glamorous but very unique, and custom templates like these will truly highlight all the best parts of your event.

Sparkling Wedding Gown

Boho Glitter Wedding Gown by Unique Dress Club

A shimmery, glitter inspired dress is just perfect NYE wedding attire. This season is all about the sparkle and the glitz, and if you're someone who loves to shine, this is a great twist on a traditional wedding gown. There are so many options for choosing a gown with those details. We love the glitter overlay on this dress that has deep cuts in the front and back for a style that stuns.

Balloon Arches

Ballon Arch by EZAura

Balloons make great decorations for weddings. They're relatively inexpensive and can dress up your event space for a fun look. Regular balloons are great, but a decorative balloon arch takes decor to another level. Multiple sizes and shades adds a dramatic feel guests will love. Opt for colors in chrome, gold and silver for a traditional NYE look, or whichever works best for your style.

Stemless Champagne Flutes

Stemless Champagne Flutes by Uncommon Goods

Champagne or bubbly is a staple of any New Years party or wedding. Although a regular champagne flute always looks classy, a stemless version is easier to grip and works well if your guests want to dance the night away. We are obsessed with the ones above- they're made from recycled wine bottles and have a wider bottom for less spillage. We'll cheers to that!

Glittery Wedding Shoes

Glitter Wedding Shoes by Bondarina Shoes

Looking for a little sparkle, but don't want your entire gown to be glittery? Add some sparkling wedding shoes! They can add a little touch of shimmer without being overwhelming if simplicity is more your style. You can still add something to your wardrobe that fits with the theme but isn't the main attraction. You will love how the light bounces off them as you dance into the night.

Champagne Cupcakes

Champagne Flavored Cupcakes by Sweet Treats by Alicia

Did we mention we love champagne? These champagne flavored cupcakes are the perfect addition for a New Years Eve wedding. They are a fun alternative to an entire cake, and the unique flavor will have guests going back for seconds! They also go well with a glass of bubbly- your tastebuds will be in heaven!

As the clock strikes midnight, have guests celebrate your union and a new year with these gold noisemakers. Everyone will have a blast using these during your festivities as they party into the night. Gold is a great metallic tone that goes with the season, and will match almost all wedding colors. These ones also come in a variety of colors if golds not your style, so you can mix and match.

Eco Friendly Confetti

When you and your new husband walk into your reception, why not have guests sprinkle you with cute confetti? It's an enjoyable way for your guests to celebrate the two of you. Worried about the affect on the environment? No need- This eco friendly confetti won't harm the earth as it is biodegradable, so you won't feel guilty as it's thrown in the air in celebration.

Sparklers or Fireworks

What's New Years Eve without fireworks? Ring in the New Year and Celebrate your wedding all at the same time with fireworks. It's something you won't soon forget and it's a unique way to end a wedding. If fireworks aren't your style but still want some spark, try something smaller like sparklers.
