Just because New Year's Eve only takes place once a year doesn't mean you can't benefit from its magical style year-round.

A New Years wedding celebration is the perfect opportunity to double the fun and celebration, but what's stopping you from holding a New Year's themed wedding year-round?

A New Year themed wedding is a chance to pull out those beautiful string lights, grab the festoon bulbs, pack the glitter and get going! It's all about colour, shimmer, shine, lights, music, fun, fireworks and new beginnings.

Want to know how you can give your wedding that New Year sparkle even if you're marrying in July? Here's how:

1. Shimmer and shine

Glitter Table Decor

New Year is all about confetti, glitter, sparkles and shimmer - and that means a whole lot of silver, gold and champagne hues.

This is the perfect opportunity to channel all things vintage-1920s, whether it's a bridal gown with a shimmer of bronze or some decorative touches, like a glittering chandelier. 

You can also shine up your table numbers, place holders, table cloth and centrepieces - it can be as simple as 'just add glitter'!

The great thing about this theme is depending on your own tastes, you can add a little or a lot when it comes to how you decorate your venue.

2. Go loud

If you're thinking about playing up the theme in a big way, consider party poppers, party horns and hats, sparklers and balloons for guests and let them go wild when it's time for the big kiss or when the clock strikes midnight at the reception.

Browse and buy themed party accessories from these online stores.

3. Light it up

If you want your wedding to reflect the New Year holiday season, it's time to put up those lights! Go for strings, strobes or extravagant dangling luminosities - this is your time to go wild!

Lighting is one of the most important features for creating a party atmosphere, so don't be afraid to light up the town. 

Stick with a golden colour scheme - warm candles can come in handy here - or go truly multicolour with your choices.

Find a wedding stylist to turn your New Year's themed wedding into something magical.

4. Go Glam

This Love Of Yours 

If there is one night your can wear a full sparkle gown that will outshine the fireworks, it's to a wedding on New Years Eve. Think the Oscar's for inspiration.

5. Set a smashing table

News Years Weddings can be intimate, formal and full of surprises. Why not start by surprising your guests with a wedding then serve a banquet of Heston Blumenthal proportions and set a table that would impress the Queen.
