What to Wear to a New Year’s Eve Wedding
If you’ve never been to a New Year’s Eve wedding, the first thing you’re probably fretting about is what to wear to a New Year’s Eve wedding!
I went to my first New Year’s wedding a few years ago and immediately thought, it’s time to bust out the sparkle. It’s New Year’s Eve, after all!
Here, I’m answering all your questions on what to wear to a New Year’s Eve wedding.
Can I Wear Black to a New Year’s Eve wedding?
A New Year’s Eve wedding is totally an occassion to bring on the glamour. If you’re normally nervous about wearing black to a wedding, you could totally get away with it for New Year’s Eve.
Black is always elegant, and since New Year’s Eve weddings are typically at night, black is appropriate.
I wore a black dress with some beading and sequins like this to the New Year’s Eve wedding I attended. It was subtle, festive and such a fun way to spend the evening.
But a friendly reminder: You should still stay away from white on this occasion.
What’s the New Year’s Eve Wedding Dress Code?
A New Year’s Eve wedding tends to be a little more formal in nature, so you can go all out and wear a full-length dress!
If you don’t have a dress like this at the ready, I highly recommend checking out Rent the Runway. I use them for special occasions and have been thrilled every time!
I rented this sequin gold skirt for family holiday photos, which would also work great for a New Year’s Eve wedding.
It’s a great way to get a designer dress for less, especially if you’re not sure you’d even wear it again! And they have gowns starting at just $60. Use code FIRST for 20% off your first rental.

Are Sequins Appropriate for a New Year’s Eve Wedding?
Yes! It’s New Year’s Eve, after all, bring on the festive atmosphere!
There are lots of gorgeous gowns–both long and short– with sequins that would be perfect for that NYE wedding. And if sequins isn’t your thing there are plenty with a hint of sparkle, too.
Here are some of my favorite sequin party dresses, perfect for solving that problem on what to wear to a New Year’s Eve Wedding.
