What advice can you give for a couple who wants an intimate wedding? Any ways on how to save?
We say yay! to you and your partner! We love intimate and micro weddings!
They are super fun and manageable to plan! Also, you get a chance to really connect with your guests! The best thing about an intimate wedding is that you get to celebrate your biggest day, surrounded by your loved ones and closest of friends only. You will be surrounded by good vibes and all the joy you should feel without any reservations.
You can totally be yourself, making your big day an authentic reflection of yourself (and your partner, of course!). You can skip on the traditional elements of weddings, especially if you feel like it does not match your personality. Your wedding can be a little shorter or maybe longer if you want. You can speak to anyone in your own tone and laugh out loud without thinking of others to judge you.
It is easy to handle a fewer number of people than a guest list of hundreds. Which gets us to our first advice to..
Choose your guests wisely and carefully.
An intimate wedding is fun but also very physically close and almost restricting. Emotions and vibes are easily felt, and there are not many “activities” around to move to do. Selecting the “right people” means also getting the “right vibe,” – which is super important for a small/intimate/micro wedding.
You can also save on hiring a full wedding planner and instead go with a day-of coordinator
..or speak to a consultant to make it easy for you to enjoy your day while planning it yourself. It would help if you did a bit of research to find high-quality vendors with a great network.
Another way to save is to find vendors providing multiple services..
Like rentals, florist, decor, etc. (think saving on delivery, set-up, and tear-down fees), the same goes with working with a caterer that can also serve alcohol and prepare/make your wedding cake!
It is easier to entertain and spend time with each and everyone attending your wedding when it is an intimate one.
Involve your guests in the fun games and activities. Hire an emcee for 2-3 hours to facilitate fun and engaging activities!
DIY projects are manageable.
Because you are not having many guests, you can most likely manage DIY projects with more ease. Like centerpieces, decor, even desserts and cake might be some things you can actually do.
Having fewer guests at your wedding is the best chance to achieve amazing lifetime memories by making your photoshoot more fun, memorable, and personal. It is easy for your photographer to cover every guest and the candid moments of you with your guests.
