5 Reasons to Get Married on New Year's Eve

Everyone thinks of June and September as the prime wedding months. While it's true that more weddings happen during these months than any other time of the year, that certainly doesn't mean they're the only good times to get married! As we prepare to welcome in the New Year, the team at WhereBridesGo.com thought it would be appropriate to share with you some of our top reasons to get married on New Year's Eve.


Reason #1: People Are Looking For Something Festive To Do Getting married on or around most holidays can lower your attendance, because most of your guests have vacations or other events already planned. Most people don't plan any trips around New Year's, though, and they will probably be looking for something fun to do to celebrate. What could possibly be more festive and romantic than watching a couple begin their new life together?

More marriage proposals happen in December than any other month!

In honor of this holiday season (and marriage proposals), we thought we'd take a quick peek at some of the most popular dates for proposals.


December is the Most Popular Proposal MonthThe jury is still out on what percentage of proposals happen during December. We found one source that said 16%, one that said 13%, and another on that said 26%!

DIY Emergency Wedding Kit - 22 Must Have Items

No matter how many hours, days, weeks, months, or even years you've spent planning your wedding, you can't guarantee that everything will go perfectly. In fact, you can almost guarantee that something will go wrong at some point - the question is, how are you going to handle it when it does?


As the bride, you shouldn't have to handle most of the last-minute frustrations and stressors that will most likely arise on your wedding day.
