A Glamorous New Year's Eve Black Tie Wedding

Glitter and Glam and New Year's Eve accessories filled Blakeley and Tanner's Black Tie Wedding at the Omni Barton Creek Resort, it all tied seamlessly together.The most important part of our wedding was for everyone to enjoy themselves! We wanted it to be a wedding and a NYE celebration, so we followed that theme throughout.

Since we decided to get married on New Year’s Eve (our 7-year anniversary), I wanted to embrace the glamour and metallic color scheme. The bridesmaids all wore different styles of Adrianna Papell’s champagne gold or blush dresses. I wanted them each to feel as unique and beautiful as they are to me.

We had groomsmen for all over Texas and some frequently travel out of state, so we choose Menguin, an online tuxedo rental company. My now-husband choose each piece of the suit and shoes.

My advice to future brides? We were incredibly blessed to have such supportive family, friends, and wedding planner, which made the planning a breeze! The best advice I received after getting engaged was to outline the top 5 things which are most important to you and your soon-to-be spouse for your wedding day (for example, entertainment, flowers, catering, open bar, venue location etc.). Then, have those involved with the planning (for us, it was our parents and siblings) to pick their top 5. This is a wonderful way to prioritize what you and those around you feel are the most essential aspects to your big day. Personally, my best advice is to find an expert wedding planner like, Lauren Chumbley, CMEP, with Eclipse Event Co. Lauren is a joy to collaborate with and her extensive knowledge, proactive initiative, and organization skills ensured our wedding day ran smoothly.
