Start Planning Early. This is 100% the most important thing you can do to ensure a flawless New Year’s Eve. From purchasing tickets to making an appointment at a local salon for the days preceding NYE – the early bird gets the worm! Many venues and events offer discount rates if you purchase tickets to their New Year’s Eve party early. Ticket prices tend to increase as we get closer to the date, so plan early and reap the benefits! Further saving can be accrued by purchasing tickets in bulk, so start organizing your group of friends ASAP to take advantage of group rates. If you are hoping to secure a hotel room for New Year’s Eve it is vital that you reserve early. Locations will be filling up fast once December hits.
