According to an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, weddings on New Year's Eve are gaining popularity and can benefit both the couple and the guests. A wedding on New Year's Eve gives guests a fun and free way to ring in the new year. From the article:
"Time was when bridal magazines advised against New Year's Eve weddings because venues and vendors charged exorbitant prices and guests might feel cheated out of their own celebration that night.
But today's weddings routinely feature more of a focus on entertaining the guests, says Kathleen Murray of the online wedding site TheKnot.com. That can include welcome baskets in their hotel rooms, multiple parties, tours of the city, and post-wedding brunches.
And because New Year's Eve can be a very pricey night to go out anyway, she says, wedding guests actually get a great deal. Instead of a noisemaker and a funny hat, they have a fabulous night on the town - topped by a champagne toast at midnight and something really personal to celebrate."
