Every couple has its own way of dreaming about their wedding, and whilst some want the red carpet event and the extravagance, others dream about something intimate.
For either it is required a certain level of production and planning. If your dream is mostly a small wedding, you may need some ideas on how to make it reality. In this entry we will introduce you to the details of planning a small wedding, from the decor, your photographer, your venue and vendors, all in one. Keep it simple, we love the extravaganza of a huge wedding but in this case, for planning a small wedding there is no need to break your head and budget.
We advice you to prioritize your spending and what really is important for the wedding, for instance you might want to give up on the ice sculpture, but instead pay close attention to the details like the flowers and amazing food and cocktails. For the location of your small wedding, it's important to take into consideration (2021) the current situation of the world. Finding a location thats around your hometown might be a beautiful surprise, we prefer the natural environments, such as gardens, forrest or the beach, of course there is always the option of renting a nice restaurant or a gallery -only for you and your invites- .
You might be amazed by the beautiful venues you can find very close from home, and with a bit of creativity make your wedding celebration a memorable time for your partner and invites.
This is a great option if you are planning on inviting your bubble to the party, the pro, is that if your family and friends are living close to your hometown, a drive will bring them to your venue. A long reception table can be super fun, make everyone feel included. Cooking something with local ingredients will give it that homey, melancholic touch, as well as supporting local businesses during these pandemic times. Since it is about sharing with the closest people in a small wedding, an atmosphere with many details should be highlighted around it, recreate a space with smooth fabrics, seasonal flowers and candles, you can use rugs, and leave out the overwhelming lights.
A very beautiful tableware, can even be family heirlooms, grandmother spoons, your parents wedding napkins, decorated pillows to play in a lounge area, you can decorate the glasses with ribbons, or make it even more extraordinary, select photos from a family album of yours and your partner where you have a section they can leave a little money for their honeymoon trip.
If you really really cannot give up the idea of the paradisiac destination wedding of your dreams, we would suggest you to consider the option of an elopement, only partner and you. First looking around in your country if there are locations that might fit your wishes. And probably finding a nice hidden beach or SPA in the forrest. Otherwise there is many countries that still have their doors open, of course this is less of a great idea nowadays yet, nothing is impossible.
Finding a hotel boutique, spa or private house for your partner and you to celebrate your love intimately and in your dream location, is possible. We would suggest to not make much plans regarding this option, but more, going with the flow, being as flexible as possible and letting yourself live moment by moment. Contacting local vendors, and an elopement planner, is also possible, and you might want to contact them at least a couple of weeks in advance.
Very important, if you and your partner are celebrating together, with no invites, you might want to consider live streaming your ceremony, or not.
If you are doing an event with people, might want to avoid the ugly phone pictures taken by the aunt. thats why, hiring a photographer is quite important, there are many photographers out there, and you want to choose wisely and creatively to find the best. This will be the moments that will stay forever.
Either ways, small wedding with your bubble or a private escapade with your partner, we would advice to do a photo session during the happening to be able to capture the moment forever and sharing through a photo session with friends and family. The most important thing is that you feel happy and that that happiness stays not only in the pictures but forever in your life.
