A New Year’s Eve Reverse Wedding Experience in the Heart of White Plains

NEW YORK, (September 2016) – The wedding specialists at The Ritz-Carlton New York, Westchester developed a new experience offering couples the opportunity to be the first to tie the knot in 2017.  ‘Be the first’ is the first of its kind offered by the hotel and is designed to give the couple an unmatched New Year’s Eve reverse wedding experience. The unforgettable New Year’s Eve wedding will begin with a cocktail reception and dinner followed by the ceremony. Vows will be exchanged as the clock hits midnight, fireworks will light the sky right outside the hotel windows and confetti will drop from the ceiling creating an extravagant celebration. The traditional “getaway car” will be replaced with an “arrival car” with the couples’ guests lined along the porte-cochere with sparklers in hand, dessert will be served prior to dinner, among more exciting “firsts” and turning the long standing wedding traditions upside down.

“This wedding experience provides the couple with an opportunity to share many firsts together,” said General Manager William Yahr. “The reverse wedding experience paired with vows exchanged at midnight as fireworks kindle to ring in the New Year truly provides not only the couple but their guests with an unparalleled event that cannot be found elsewhere in this area.”

The couple will be given the option to shop for his and her wedding bands at the Tiffany & Co. just minutes from the hotel and a custom Champagne label can be created for the couple. The reception and ceremony will take place in the hotel’s recently renovated ballroom and gallery event space.
