How To Have An Intimate Wedding

When it comes to weddings, size matters. And sometimes the smaller the better. At more intimate weddings, there really are no expectations. It’s not likely your guests will formally welcome your bridal party in a receiving line and they definitely won’t be forced to awkwardly watch your first dance from a table so far from the dance floor it may as well be in the next town over. An intimate wedding isn’t going to follow such a traditional day-of course of events. It’s going to blaze its own trail, with the newlywed couple (and their guests) letting the night go in whichever direction feels right. Intimate weddings are perfect for the couple that can go with that flow.

But just because you’ve chosen to tone-down your nuptials, doesn’t mean you can’t do it in top-notch style. Less cookie-cutter, more cutting edge, intimate weddings actually call for one-of-a-kind wedding-day surprises. Because there are fewer guests, there might be more room in your budget to hire a special performer (a belly dancer, a fire-eater, a tap dancing duo) to entertain your crowd in-between the dinner courses. With fewer people, these kinds of unexpected details never get overlooked. So plan well and make them unforgettable.

Here are 10 more ways to pull off a small but special wedding your guests won’t ever forget.
