Bigger isn’t always better. If you were planning on having a bigger party but are now having a smaller wedding, don’t worry, it will still be special.
“Don’t skip anything. You can have your wedding with the people you love. We’ll rescale your wedding to make it your new size and into a more intimate boutique affair,” said Geriann Eddy, President of Fine Affairs.
Tips for creating an incredible intimate wedding:
Lesser Known Locations - Having fewer guests means that you can consider a more unusual locale that your celebration wouldn’t fit in when it was planned as a larger to-do. Think outdoors, barns, or separate locations for the ceremony and reception. If you’ve already committed to a large space, use draperies to divide it into smaller sections.
Each Area, Amazing! – Welcome the wonder in with a special entrance or unique archway filled with color, natural elements, soft fabrics, and lots of light.
Smaller Tables with Amazing Tablescapes – Small, 4 to 6-person tables leave plenty of room for delightful décor and details. Load up on drama with large candles and rich color schemes featuring deep blues, burgundies, and golds for fall.
Get Your Game On - Move over dancing. Smaller weddings give guests an opportunity to relax with more casual entertainment options. Enjoy the outdoors with games of croquet or cornhole and set up a s’mores station so guests can toast marshmallows while reveling in the warmth of a bonfire. Then, end the night with an awesome firework show.
Resave the Date - When time is not a factor, options abound. Postpone the big party by retaking engagement photos (maybe with the couple wearing masks), then send out another announcement with your new date. Here’s an idea that doubles the fun– have an intimate wedding this year while planning to host a big party next year.
