How To Make A Small Wedding Fun
Intimate is the New Grand: Embrace the Joy of Small Weddings Filled with Fun and Memories
Not everyone wants a big wedding ceremony, some couples like to keep it small for lots of reasons.
Smaller intimate weddings are on the increase around the globe. Even elopements are on the increase.
Don’t sweat the small stuff, though; it’s pretty easy to put a bit of fun into a small wedding without costing too much either.
It doesn’t have to be boring; there is a lot more opportunity to make them personal and fun.
So how can you have a bit more fun on the day?
Here are some small wedding ideas you might like to consider.
who says a wedding day has to be serious..
Why not use soft seating for your seating plan at the ceremony.
Your guests will definitely chill sitting in comfy seating like their own sofa.
Nice comfy sofas or lounge chairs, set out at the required distance.
The more mismatched, the groovier.
I love a bit of mismatch in everything, never mind seating.
What about setting up an ice cream bar?
I see lots of wedding suppliers that hire out small portable ice cream wagons; you could hire one of them.
Let the guests help themselves during the day.
Watch the kiddies though in case they eat too many.
Wedding Movie Night
If you have all those lovely comfy seats already set out, what about doing a movie night as part of your smaller wedding?
You can hire out large screens to play the movie on.
Imagine sitting with your partner and watching your favourite movie with all your favourite people, on one of the most romantic nights of your life so far.
Which would you have on your screen?
Top Gun or Dirty Dancing or something else?
Have A Sports Day
Now, this might depend on whether you wanted to get your wedding dress dirty or not.
But what about doing a sports day?
I heard of one bride looking for wheelbarrows for her wedding day as she was going to do the wheelbarrow race. Now that sounds like great fun to me.
Would you do it?
Or what about some lawn games like rounders or croquet? Or perhaps giant Jenga.
Anyone for Tea?
What about having afternoon tea after the ceremony instead of a full sit down meal.
Now that would be my perfect wedding or a picnic.
And there are companies out there who will deliver and set up a picnic for you for your wedding day, how cool is that.
Smaller intimate weddings are on the increase around the globe…
So why not have fun with it and make it into a memorable day by doing things differently?
These are just a few ideas you could consider doing to make your small wedding fun.
There are lots of different ways that you can make them more personal.
Remember, size doesn’t matter at a wedding; it’s all about having fun with your favourite people.
Small weddings can be fun!
