For those of you who are about to plan for a wedding on a New Year’s Eve, this one will surely be a treat for you! This wedding affair has all the elements of a true NYC party: gold sequined dresses, shining piñata chandeliers, and glowing sparklers. And the florals, paper goods, and the event designing have totally hit the mark. We owe this everything to Sarah who happens to be one of the owners of L & S Design Co. She typically likes the festive mood of holiday parties from the glitzy feel to having all of the people she loved dancing around and having fun ‘til the break of dawn. She said, “We love the idea of everybody having a great time at our wedding and what could be better than having an NYE style of party on our special day?” and she was totally right about it! Huge thanks to Love Duck’s Photography for capturing all the beautiful moments of this wedding/NYE party and best wishes to Sarah and Pat for having a successful wedding!
Being a floral designer at L & S Design Co. I was the one who make the wedding bouquets for the brides every weekend. I love doing my job so I wouldn’t miss the chance in making my own wedding bouquet. I had made from Silver brunia, black scabiosa, black center, anemones, Viberum berries, and peonies. I made my bouquet just right before the rehearsal dinner was about to start and I was very emotional in doing it that I could not stop myself from crying. I was so happy to see that the finished product totally reflects ‘me’. It looked as if it was not structured because of all the wild pieces but it was really the kind of bouquet I was hoping to hold at my wedding.
Here’s a great tip that you can use: We really like the idea that the evening was not only our wedding night but it was also the New Year’s Eve to all our guests. We love to see them having a blast just like we did and we’re glad that we have decided to come up on such an idea. We rented a bunch of lounge furniture and we also had some special dynamic lighting that fitted perfectly with the dance floor. Our food for the wedding was set inside the room and they were grouped in stations. We wanted all the guests to find all the tapas we picked for the menu and they really loved it. There’s really something special about the thought f mingling around rather than sitting down while chatting with the same group of people for the next 2 hours.
Dancing under this piñata chandelier is really enticing, don’t you think?
Sarah has been around working with all other brides for their own weddings. So her advice is really something that you can work on with:
My advice is simple – just be true to yourself! Think of the special things that you and your partner like and start your planning from there. Never let anyone lead you away from you vision of the wedding or else you will only regret it everything if you don’t work from the heart.
Lastly, hire a wedding coordinator and leave everything to them because they are the professionals. You don’t wanna let your aunt run up to the DJ just to remind about playing you special mom or having your mom remember your day of taking pictures, right? I thank Megan for making all things possible at my wedding. Coordinators are such important for weddings and it’s a must that you also have them on your special day.
