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?

Reason #2: Champagne, Champagne, Champagne!

It's no secret that champagne is the classic drink used to ring in the New Year. It's also an incredibly popular beverage at most weddings. Why not combine the two and get double the champagne?! It's a perfect excuse.

Reason #3: Sparklers Are Expected

Let's be honest... A wedding kiss surrounded by sparklers makes for some of the most romantic wedding photos of all time. Having your wedding on New Year's Eve gives you a great excuse to celebrate with sparklers galore.

Reason #4: No One Will Forget Your Anniversary

It's true! Days during other months can blend together, and people (even those in your bridal party) can have trouble remembering your specific anniversary date. Having a New Year's Eve wedding, on the other hand, is so momentous that very few people (if any) will forget your wedding day.

Reason #5: New Year's Eve Weddings Are The Most Fun

Ask anyone who has been to a wedding on New Year's Eve; most of them will say it was the most fun wedding they'd ever been to! There are lots of ways to make your New Year's Eve wedding really pop. For example, you can shower the dance floor in confetti at midnight, you can set up a big TV and watch the ball drop with all your family and friends, or you can even time it so that your wedding kiss happens at the stroke of midnight. No matter how you decide to celebrate, your New Year's Eve wedding is sure to be a big hit.

Happy New Year from WhereBridesGo.com!

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol.

Wedding Attire
The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade.
