11. Being that the big moment doesn’t come until midnight, your venue may offer an extended package that lasts until the early hours of the morning. This is key if you’re the type that never wants the party to end!

13. You’ll have even more reasons to celebrate on your anniversary.

A word of advice: If you’re thinking of having a fabulous New Years Eve wedding, be sure you book your venue far in advance. Lots of venues offer a New Years Eve dinner party to the public, and (depending on if they are in high demand) may not offer a private venue that evening. The same goes for your wedding music. Nail down your favorite band/deejay before they are booked!
