Small wedding ideas

There are so many things to consider when it comes to planning your wedding, from the venue to the food and everything in between, it can easily spiral out of control. One way of avoiding this is to have a more intimate gathering, in which case, here are some brilliant small wedding ideas for your big day. 

When you hear the words “small wedding,” it doesn’t necessarily mean compromising or cutting back. In fact, there are a huge number of positives that emerge when you decide to go with a smaller scale wedding. Firstly, it means that there is less for you to organise (and pay for), which gives you some breathing space to really enjoy your day without worrying about what could go wrong. It also gives you more time to spend with your guests, rather than having to whizz around because you’ve invited thousands. There is, however, still a fair bit of organising to attend to. You’ll still have to choose your wedding venue, and luckily we have plenty of hotels that would be suitable for both wedding ceremonies and receptions, whether you use the grounds or take advantage of our wedding offers to help plan your day and reduce cost. The benefit of small wedding venues is that you’re able to be a little bit more creative. With fewer guests, you can think outside the box. 

Aside from the venue, there are many other ways that you can make a smaller wedding more personal. Instead of a formal meal, for example, you could set up a buffet, ask a family member to organise a barbecue or hire out your favourite food van for the day. These ideas aren’t really practical when you’re dealing with hundreds of guests, but they work perfectly for smaller numbers. Similarly, your entertainment can also be a little more imaginative. Instead of investing in bands and DJs, you can easily put together your own wedding playlist and even ask your guests to contribute songs. Likewise, a bit of DIY décor also works well in an intimate setting. Including items that have personal significance, like those old curtains from your childhood room, also ensures that your small wedding is big on personality. 

No matter how small you make your “little wedding”, as long as you take care of the finer details, you’re sure to end up with a celebration that’s just the right size for you.
