Given the current climate, there’s obviously been a huge uptick in people planning a small wedding. And, while our small wedding was the plan from the beginning, I’ve had conversations with multiple people who are looking for guidance, ideas, or even just validation that, yes, your wedding day will still be wonderful, even if you aren’t surrounded by 150 people.
It’s a tough decision to plan something more intimate — and I can only imagine how much tougher it is when that decision is beyond your control. But, what I can do as a bride who has planned a small wedding, which was wonderful, is offer my advice on how to make your day special. You may be looking at new venues, wondering how a wedding with under 50 people will still feel lively, and questioning whether the traditional format even still works.
I can, of course, only speak to my own, but I loved the wedding planning process and I will talk to anyone who’s willing to listen about the joys of a small wedding. So, if that’s you and you don’t see what you’re looking for below or you just want to chat, give me a shout!
Planning a Small Wedding: Resources, Ideas, and More
I’ve corralled all my wedding planning and small wedding-specific posts into one category, “Small Wedding.” My Wedding tab includes other items like honeymoon posts, engagement, and boudoir, which are probably not of as much interest to you right now.
My resources for planning a small wedding cover everything from winter wedding specific advice on flowers and bridal details to how to throw a winter dinner party wedding that still feels festive. Just because you’re planning a small wedding doesn’t mean you have to go to the courthouse and call it a day. There are so many ways to make the day feel like the celebration you’ve always dreamed of…even if there are only your very nearest and dearest by your side.
