Couples plan small weddings to stay within a budget or have an intimate gathering, spending time with the wedding guests.
Small wedding is a way to make your special day like you’ve planned; having control over every detail and spending more time with your guests. It is also much cheaper and easier to organise.
Do you plan on having a smaller size of guest list for your wedding? This tips will guide you on having a small and intimate wedding.
- Have a Smaller Budget
Since you’re planning a small wedding, plan on having a smaller budget to cater for your few guests. You can consider cutting the guest list to work within your budget and achieve the dreams of your wedding.
A small wedding is a great chance to give your wedding guests extra care and make them feel very honoured.
Since everything is kept small, the extra details like providing transportation service for the guests, providing fabulous and sumptuous meals and loading of gifts baskets will be more accessible.
You should therefore treat your guests very well as they have taken great effort towards honouring your big day.
- Play Up The Intimacy
Having a smaller wedding increases the intimate tension and create an atmosphere of love.
Unlike the big weddings where you have limited time to spend with the guests, a small wedding creates a feeling of everyone being part of your relationship as you tie the knot with your partner.
You can have a round table at your wedding reception, where the guests and the wedding party can sit together.
You can consider having a family-style medium of serving meal for the guests to have a sense of communication and it’s a great way for them to mingle!
- Consider Several Places
Having a small wedding means choosing a simple venue to hold your wedding reception and ceremony.
Places like the church and a banquet hall reception is not really the ideal venues to hold your reception and ceremony.
Commercial reception venues such as the restaurant, wedding chapel, museums, historic inns are nice places to hold your event.
