Ideas for a Small New Year’s Eve Wedding this Year!

Best ideas for a New Year’s Eve Weddings!

This year has been rough on everyone and many engaged couples have been putting off their nuptials until the new year begins. However, why not end 2020 on the perfect note by having a New Year’s Eve wedding?


Getting your family and friends together for a small wedding will surely help lift everyone’s spirits. Let’s take a look at a few New Year’s Eve wedding ideas that will make the day even more special, including how event rental equipment can help.


Choose an Outdoor Location for New Year’s Eve Weddings

Since we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, it’s important that the health and safety of your wedding party and guests is a top priority. Outdoor events have proven to be a lot safer because social distancing is easier to achieve. Besides, outdoor weddings can take place at multiple types of venues and are absolutely gorgeous, so this decision is a win-win for you and your guests.


New Year’s Face Masks

Face masks have proven to be highly effective in preventing the COVID-19 virus from spreading from person to person. To keep everyone safe, they should be required throughout the ceremony and during the reception. For an added bonus, pick up either some wedding-themed or New Year’s-themed masks and provide one to each of your guests. You can even match the colors with the bridesmaids’ dresses!


Rent Some Large Tents for New Year’s Eve Weddings

Wedding rentals are always popular because they provide easy access to a large number of different items. If you’re going to have a New Year’s Eve wedding, a tent rental will allow you to provide cover and keep the area more organized. Tent accessories such as sidewalls and heaters are also available in case you’re faced with cold weather. Don’t forget about tables, chairs, linens, and other items that you’ll need.


Keep the Bar Open Late

Your friends and family are obviously going to attend your wedding because they’re an important part of your life, but it’s also expected that the festivities will be a fun way to hang out for a while. Plus, many guests will be sticking around until Midnight so they can celebrate heading into 2021. If you decide to have an open bar, consider leaving it open late at night. At the very least, make either cider or champagne available.


Put Up a Photo Booth

Photo booths have become increasingly popular for weddings and they’re the perfect way to entertain your guests by giving them something fun to do. These booths offer numerous props, such as wigs, masks, and other items that can be used to spruce up a photograph. Not only will people find this to be fun, but they’ll also take home a unique souvenir.


Rent Audio/Visual Items

Your New Year’s Eve wedding will be even better if you have some proper tunes for your guests. If you don’t have great audio/visual equipment, our suggestion is that you rent a nice sound system that’s compatible with an iPod. Couple that with a dance floor and you have the recipe for a wonderful reception.


Supply Fun Party Favors

No New Year’s Eve wedding would be successful without plenty of party favors for your guests. Head to a party supply store and pick up some hats, horns, sparklers, and other 2021-themed items. This will allow all of your guests to celebrate your happy event while also ringing in the new year. Just be sure to take plenty of pictures!
