Kiss Me at Midnight

Toast the new year and a new life together as a couple with a New Year's Eve wedding. New Year's Eve nuptials are sure to be both memorable and magical, especially when planned around an elegant color palette full of champagne-gold, cream and brown.

Tip: Pass out champagne to your guests as you say your vows and schedule your ceremony so that the groom kisses his bride at the stroke of midnight.
