How to have a small wedding that is elegant and beautiful
December 5, 2020
Weddings are glamorous occasions, and the wedding industry is one that is becoming richer by the day. We consider weddings as occasions we will have once in our lifetimes, so we spend quite a lot of money in making our wedding days glamourous and beautiful. However, if you don’t have the necessary budget to spend on a grand wedding or even if you do, but you necessarily don’t want to have a big wedding, there are so many ways you can have a small wedding and still make it a beautiful and elegant one that you and your guests will remember forever.
If you have
planned on having a small wedding, you need to be creative in how you can
incorporate elegance and beauty into your small wedding. First of all, you need
to decide on the guest list and finalize the number of the guests who will be
attending your wedding since it is going to be a small amount of people you
need to make sure that every one of them feel special and involved at the
wedding. One of the downsides of having a small wedding is that you may not get
as many wedding gifts from your guests. To remedy this situation you can always
add a wedding
wishing well box among your wedding décor that your guests can make
monetary contributions towards your wedding. This is one of the best ways to
ensure that you get a monetary gift that is actually valuable to you than
getting a gravy boat that you would hardly use.
You can also send out handwritten invitation cards to your guests to add a personal touch. Since there are not many invitations to send out you can ensure a handwritten invitation will be more personal and intimate. Another important aspect is the venue, many people have big venues like reception halls of fancy hotels and big landscaped gardens when they have a large guest list that they have to entertain. Now that you have a small guest list you can find a more personal and secure location like a beautiful home garden to have your reception. It will be so elegant and intimate to have a wedding ceremony in a beautiful home.
Since you have a small amount of guests it is important to keep them occupied and entertained at all times otherwise, they will tend to feel bored at the wedding especially since there aren’t many people to talk to. Having a live band perform will be one of the most creative ways to entertain a small amount of guests as you can have the band play special song requests from guests. This will keep them happy and entertained as well. If you have guests who are gifted at singing or playing an instrument you can ask the band to give them an opportunity to entertain the crown with their talent as well. This will be a great way for everybody to have a lot of fun at your wedding and since it is a small group it is easier to keep them entertained by a live band.
