How to plan an intimate wedding

Getting married doesn’t need to be a big ordeal, with hundreds of guests, extravagant  wedding venues and unrealistic budgets. Many instead opt for an intimate wedding, with only their closest friends and family members. This leaves the wedding guests as only the people that are dearest and closest to the bride and groom. In turn allowing the day to be enjoyed by the people you love the most.

Having an intimate wedding means you don’t have to face a lot of unfamiliar faces that you hardly know on your big day. To do this, you and your family members will have to cut down on the list of invitees and only invite those that are closest and dearest to the family.

PLANNING FOR AN INTIMATE WEDDING WORK WITH A BUDGET

As an intimate wedding involves having fewer guests, having a well-prepared budget will allow you to perfectly cater for your guests, having everything just the way you want for your dream wedding. A carefully budgeted intimate wedding can remove the pitfalls often involved with a large ceremony that can involve a lot of guests and having to cut corners to meet up with costs of hosting them for your wedding.

GET A WEDDING PLANNER

Hiring a wedding planner for your special day will help you organise every aspect of your wedding, allowing you to capture every detail. Many people are of the opinion that planning a small wedding is easy however, an intimate wedding can require everything to be perfectly in place meaning paying attention to the finer details can be even more important. Having a wedding planner can help you make sure that nothing is missed for your perfect day.

MAKE PLANS TO GIVE YOUR GUESTS A TREAT

An intimate wedding with a small number of guests gives you a chance to give your guests a treat. You can then easily think of having the best champagne for your guests, amazing flower arrangements and memorable food. You can have six-course meals, lovely gift baskets and a great atmosphere. Going that extra mile for your guests will certainly leave a lasting impression.

GET EVERYONE INVOLVED

Having fewer guests at your intimate wedding makes it easier to get everyone involved. To make the day fun and enjoyable for you and your guests, you can have every invited guest have a special reading or have them stand in a circle around you as the vows are exchanged. Having your close friends and family involved in parts of your wedding can make your day that little bit more special.

HAVE THE WEDDING SOMEWHERE PERFECTLY SUITED

Having a more intimate wedding gives you the freedom to chose a wedding venue that is perfectly suited, or customisable to your day. There are a lot of options for spaces like this like Brisbane’s, Transcontinental Hotel, cosy cabins in the Byron Bar Hinterland, Wineries in South Australia or any other place with exquisite views available are perfect for when you are not having too many guests on your big day.
