No doubt about it, a wedding on New Year’s Eve is certain to be the party of the year! Let your guests ring in your wedding vows with these festive wedding favor suggestions.

English Crackers
No — not the type you eat! These are the rolled tubes that are covered in tissue. Two people grab one end and pull. Once it snaps, tiny toys will come tumbling out.

Blow Horns and Party Hats
Write your names and wedding date on the party hats and give out blow horns, etc. in a small gift bag.

Give your guests small bottles of champagne with personalized labels.

Hershey Kisses
Wrap several silver foiled Hershey Kisses in gold or silver netting. Tie with a silver/gold or black bow.

Festive Mini Candy Jar
Start with a baby food jar or other small jar. Paint the top in silver or gold acrylic paints. Attach a personalized label to the jar with your names and wedding date. Spread glue over the cover and the jar and roll in gold and/or silver glitter (don’t cover over the label). Fill with colorful mints or candies. Tie a silver ribbon and bow around neck of bottle.

Personalized Calendar
There’s a lot of software that can help you create personalized calendars for the new year. If you don’t wish to do this on your own, pick out some really nice photos (either personal photos, landscape scenes, etc.) and take it to a local copy shop to print for you.

Fortune Cookies
See what the New Year has in store for your wedding guess. Wrap fortune cookie favors in netting or place in small, decorated favor bags/boxes for each guest.

Fortune Bubble Ornaments
Another fortune idea is to purchase plastic, see-through round ornaments (at craft stores). Separate the bubble, place a rolled up fortune scroll in each ornament. Add some curled ribbon and put the two halves back together. Attach a ribbon to hang the ornaments. For an added touch and a centerpiece for your tables, put silver painted tree branches (secured in decorated pots) on each table and hang the ornaments from the tree.

Past Year CD
Pick several of your favorite or number 1 chart songs from the past year and burn them on CD to give as favors. Label it “The Best of 2015” or “Our Favorites of 2015”.

Glow-in-the-Dark Items
Glow in the dark items are very popular now at New Year’s. Give you guests any type of glow in the dark item such as stars, cups, necklaces, fiber optic wands, fun eye glasses, etc.
