I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Happy Monday, dear readers! So glad you are here checking out the blog today. I have some great ideas coming for this week, so be sure to keep checking in. To get us started off today, I have a new inspiration request from a reader named Jillian. Here’s what she wrote:

So, I am getting married on  New Year’s Eve in Boston and  I am wondering if you have seen or have any ideas  for NYE weddings.   I don’t want it to become too theme-y and I find that  a lot of  the ideas I have seen on websites are mostly just that…glitter and   sparkles and all things SUPER cheesy.  .I really wanted to go with the classic  black and white -I am a HUGE fan of the Great Gatsby-esque theme and  especially the classic tux like you blogged about!  Then I was thinking  maybe an accent color but didn’t know what I could pull off (I thought about  simple touches of red, but then though it might end up looking more  Christmas/holiday)…and that’s where I got stuck.  The only color I  really don’t think I want is pink..I love the color, but it just doesn’t suit  my fiancé and I for our wedding!

Okay, folks. If I were getting married on New Year’s Eve (which I’d REALLY love to do) I think I’d go with a champagne theme. Champagne is such a quintessential celebratory element, so it is perfect for a New Year’s Eve wedding. The look doesn’t have to be overt or obvious…just think glowing lighting, LOTS of champagne and champagne and gold accent colors to really warm up the whole black and white look. One of my favorite images below is the chandelier which, if you look closely, has a HUGE netting of balloons hidden behind it. At the stroke of midnight, all of the balloons were released on the guests. So old school and so cute!
