Tips for Planning Small Weddings

Some couples are chasing the small weddings trend and choosing to create their fairy tale in a more intimate space. Small weddings do not need to sacrifice the grandeur and elegance in the process of creating an intimate experience with fewer guests. Wedding venues can be designed to accommodate smaller weddings without appearing empty, allowing couples to have the intimate ceremony of their dreams.

Planning Small Weddings

Planning small weddings requires that you decide what small means to you. Do not confuse this with the size of the experience. The guest count will determine the scale of things. It is important to consider the people you want to share your intimate experience with. Small weddings vary with guest count, as the term “small” is relative to the individual and their subjective opinions. You might consider having parents, immediate family and a few close friends in attendance, while others consider 50 guests a small wedding.

Choosing a Wedding Venue

Once you have an idea about your guest count, start imagining the space for your intimate ceremony. Wedding venues with in-house designers are able to stage your ceremony and reception space to accommodate large and small weddings alike. It is important to tour wedding venues, either in person or by a virtual tour. This will give you design inspiration and help you plan. Secure your wedding venue early to make sure that your date is available. All-inclusive wedding venues with an in-house design team can save thousands in the process of putting your entire ceremony and reception together the way you envision it. Small weddings do not sacrifice the design or the experience.

Small Weddings are Affordable

Small weddings are affordable weddings. This fact might be the drive behind the trend of smaller weddings. If you rent out the space, hire a designer, rent staff services, and rent décor separately, the average sized wedding can meet the nation’s average at about $30,000. More and more couples are looking for ways to keep costs down, and the answer can be fewer guests in attendance. The headcount means less of everything. Whether you are planning large or small, an all-inclusive wedding venue can make weddings more affordable.

When we use the term “all-inclusive,” we are defining a concept that provides the basic venue and services bundled into one price. All-inclusive wedding venues also have relationships with vendors, which can also give you access to professional services at reduced rates. Small weddings leave more in your budget for other elements of the big day, such as the dress and photography.
