New Year’s Eve Wedding Inspiration

We can’t help but share this New Year’s Eve wedding inspiration board today, what with the holidays being so close! This could easily double as inspiration for a holiday party, if you’re still in need of some ideas. It has a bit of a Hollywood glamour feel to it, and also includes seasonal colors without throwing red, green, and Christmas trees on everything. Add in lots of string lights for cozy ambiance, and a massive chocolate cake, and I think you’ve got a great party on your hands!
