New Year’s Eve City Wedding Inspiration

New Year’s Eve marks the end of a chapter and the beginning to a new one. If you love a bubbly cocktail, sparkly dress and a dance party that lasts until the morning, a New Years Eve Wedding might be just your style. Below we’ve rounded up some visual inspiration for you and a list of five venue’s in the City of Vancouver we think a New Years Eve Wedding would be fabulous.

Where to wed in Vancouver on New Years Eve?

The Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Located in the centre of downtown Vancouver, with marble staircases, regal details, and a lobby bar that serves up some of the best hand crafted cocktails in the city (pre-party for the gentlemen perhaps?).  We love the historic and totally re-done Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Perhaps you envision a modern ballroom wedding reception, with long tables, low and full floral garlands and romantic candlelight. Wake up married and treat yourself to brunch at Hawksworth, need we say more?

The Vancouver Art Gallery. This turn-of-the-century former provincial courthouse building presents a dramatic exterior backdrop and entrance for a New Years Eve Wedding. Our favorite feature is the rotunda, with a soaring dome and twin marble staircases. A perfect place to host your ceremony and dance party at the base.

The Roundhouse Community Centre Exhibition Hall.  Transform this space anyway you like. With movable walls, rustic post and wood beams and a space to fit a crowd, you and your guests could leave here believing your were anywhere after we’re done with it. We envision globe lights spilling from the ceiling the to floor, intimate long tables, cozy lounge areas and bar tenders in velvet bow ties serving up old fashions. Surprise your guests as gold confetti canons shower the dance floor at midnight and enter a new year married and covered in sparkles.

The Vancouver Club. Regal, timeless and full of class. The Vancouver Club, once a men’s only club, has entered a new day of modern entertaining while maintaining the history and elegance we love about it. Perhaps you’ll wed with a romantic ceremony in the Georgian room, filled with lush ivory florals, natural greenery and candles everywhere, followed by old fashion cocktails in the bar and dinner and dancing in the ballroom. Ladies dressed to the nines in floor-length fashion forward gowns, and gentlemen in tuxes. A lively jazz band for the cocktail reception and first dances, champagne towers and The Collective You there to capture your guests in a black and white portrait studio throughout the evening.

The Loden Penthouse. If an intimate evening wedding for forty guests is more your style, the Loden Halo Penthouse could be your ideal environment. Create your own rules and spend the day together getting pampered, then invite guests to join you for an evening ceremony on the patio overlooking the city and a swanky and fun cocktail reception and dance party to follow. Cocktail dresses, sharp suits and fun times ahead.

However and wherever you choose to wed, make it your own. Whether you’re a timeless romantic, a fan of mid-century modern designs or all about nature, the new rules for wedding planning involve creating a day that’s about the people, places and things you love. If you are recently engaged, ideas and opinions can become overwhelming. Step back and soak it in, the most important detail is that in the end, you marry the one you love. How you choose to do it is all part of the adventure!
