Ideas for your intimate wedding.

With intimate weddings on the rise in 2020 due to the social distancing restrictions in place, I’ve put together some of my favourite tips on how to make your intimate wedding perfect. From venue, decor and food, these tips can inspire new ideas and provide you with some my top tips on how to host your perfect small wedding.

Non traditional venue

A great bonus to having an intimate wedding is that you have so many more venue options than most larger weddings have. With intimate weddings you can look into more non traditional venues like museums, art galleries or even restaurants and pubs! You can even go for the unusual and unique and go for a cliff top or in a treehouse! There are so many venues you can look into for your intimate wedding and its worth taking a good look and doing your research to see if there is something different that you love!

Destination wedding

Of course you can have a destination wedding whatever sized wedding you have, but there is something extra special when your destination wedding has a intimate guest list, it feels like a  holiday with all your loved ones there to celebrate with you. Having a intimate guest list can also give you access to some special venues, you may be able to hire out a villa exclusively for your wedding and have everyone stay on site and make it a week long holiday!

Change up your aisle

When planning out your ceremony, you may start to think/worry that because you have a small guest list the standard chairs in a row for your ceremony space may not work. This may be because the space is long and narrow and you would only have 3/4 rows each side leaving half the room empty. Don’t worry, there is a solution for that! You can change up your aisle and throw the rule book out the window! Flip the room on the side and have your chairs in a semi circle shape, put smaller amount of chairs in the row and put them on the diagonal, use benches and sofas instead of single chairs, use lounge furniture, wrap the chairs around the ‘alter’ there are lots of different ways you can change up your aisle! Pintrest is a great place to gain inspiration for this especially for intimate weddings!
