Tips for Planning an Intimate Wedding

ballroom for your wedding

People often begin planning a “small” or “intimate” wedding, and then quickly allow their plans to grow out of control. A truly intimate wedding is possible, though. Surprisingly, it may take a lot more determination and focus to keep it small. Let’s look at a few tips to help you plan your dream wedding.

Make Time For Planning

An intimate wedding doesn’t mean that it hasn’t been well planned. In fact, the smaller the wedding, the more focused you’ll need to be on certain details. There are a lot of decisions that need to be made. You’ll need to start the wedding planning process with the most important decision: the venue. The venue will really set the tone for the entire wedding. Are you looking for a ballroom for your wedding? Even an intimate event can have a magnificent venue. But even if you’re not looking for a ballroom for your wedding, the venue is definitely a vital detail.

Time of Day

Another important planning detail will be what time of day you will hold your wedding. It’s estimated that 53% of weddings occur in the afternoon, 31% in the evening, and 16% in the morning. The time of day will have a big impact on the guests. Although it’s your day, you want to make sure you aren’t unnecessarily unconvincing your guests.

Food Service

If you are serving food, that will also be a huge consideration. One of the perks of having a smaller event is that you might be able to budget for nicer catering or a fuller meal. However, some small events also opt to go light on food as well. If you are trying to stick to a strict budget for your entire event, then keeping things small will work well for you.

Edit The Guest List Strictly

The only way to actually keep your wedding small and intimate will be to keep that guest list strictly in check. Weddings grow out of their original bounds when the guest list starts to grow. You’ll be surprised at how difficult it is to edit a guest list for a wedding, but if you stick to your original intentions, it can be done.
