You can't go wrong with a classic black and white New Year's Eve wedding. I think the key is to keep it very formal. You don't want it to get tacky (ie. sunglasses with the year on it, plastic top hats and crowns!). If it's in your budget, fireworks are a great touch for midnight.
I think a video booth would be so fun. Check with your videographer to see if they would get a message from your guests and their NY resolution. After a few drinks it may become quite comical :)

How perfect would a champagne flute with your monogram and the year etched on it be for a favor?
Make sure there is plenty of champagne! Have a safe and Happy New Years!
This is a different approach to a winter wedding. It has a cozier, rustic, warmer feel to a winter wedding. Picture pine cones, hot cocoa, and cozy sweaters.
I love the idea of having a Winter Wonderland Wedding! I picture all white, with lots of crystals, blue lights, and ice sculptures. Little touches of snowflakes would be nice, but not too many. A faux fur shawl for the bride or even all of the bridesmaids would be a nice touch. Or even a faux fur muff. On the latest episode of My Fair Wedding the bride carried a muff with flowers attached to it, so she would still have a bouquet.
I absolutely LOVE this cake!
These cute cake pops would make great favors!
I think a bouquet without flowers would be really nice.
Why not go green...on your favors :) Here are some beautiful ideas on how to fascinate your guests for days, even weeks, after your wedding, made by yourself (or little helper-friends:).
How about lillies in pretty little gunnysacks...
Or small envelopes with the bridal pair's emblem on it, filled with all kinds of flower seeds; a longlasting and colorful memory...

Fir cones make a cute favor at winter weddings. The pine nuts make a delicious accessory and you could also use them as nametags...

Guests' favorite thing to take home as a favor is something edible. Second to that is something useful. Everyone uses soap (or at least we hope). If you are creative and have lots of extra time you can make the soap yourself. Or just buy it in bulk. People love different sents and organic soaps. Wrap the soap in decorative paper (scrapbook paper works great) and add a tag with the kind of soap. You could even use it as your escort card by adding the guest's name to the tag. Or you could put them in a cute decorative box.
I love the idea of having pies for a favor for a summer wedding or shower. There is no better place than Michigan for cherries, so why not go for cherry pies? You could give out mini individual pies or a large pie for each couple or family. You could make them yourself or order them from a bakery. You can present them with ribbons, boxes, bags, and baskets. The packaging ideas are endless.
