How do you organize your mini wedding
A smaller wedding can be the ideal format for those who want to cut their budget and save money without losing the style of a perfect wedding, but also as a way to invest even more in quality in party services and with the family celebrate alone and close friends. Whatever your choice, take a look at these tips on how to organize and decorate a ceremony and mini wedding reception:
Invited : getting the list of guests for a wedding can be relentless, after all, there is always someone in the family or a friend of work to count and the list does not stop growing! The mini-wedding is about just naming the basic people who will accompany you on this important day.
Therefore, those cousins with whom you don’t have much contact or the colleagues you only see at work should not be called. As difficult as it may seem, just try to think of the people you want to be with. To be considered a mini wedding, the list should not include more than 100 people between guests and companions, but ideally it should remain in the 70s. For those who want an even more intimate ceremony, the micro wedding can accommodate up to 40 people.
Place of ceremony or party : Since the guest list is reduced, you can do without the large salons and think of more inviting surroundings such as restaurants, country houses or even the beach! Everything depends on your dream wedding style, be it rustic, traditional or even ultra-modern. But for those who want even more loving memories, weddings in the backyard, in this mood of various American comedies, work very well and already relieve the payment of space!
Ideal time : For mini weddings, the ceremony is most common in the afternoon and the party lasts until evening. Of course it is not a rule, but there is a certain magic in the ceremonies that accompany the sunset, especially in the more intimate nature.
Personalized decoration and intimate atmosphere : for those who organize their wedding, every detail of the decoration counts, and if the suggestion is to do something more intimate, some types of elements are wild!
An example of this are the lights in garlands or even blinkers, with which special and low lighting can be created on the walls and even on the ceiling. In this case, choose the yellow lights, they leave the atmosphere more cozy! Another example is the rustic furniture or the family cutlery. If your mother, grandparents, aunts have any special things that make the difference in decorating the party, it’s time to borrow, after all, nobody says no to the newlyweds!
Another detail is custom or handmade items : for those trying to save money, it is worth organizing some of your family and friends to help you make some items handy. Godparents are always at your service!
To complete the intimate setting, think about the arrangement of the tables at the time of the celebration and the meal on offer. For a list of fewer guests, it’s worth considering a single table to behave everyone, so keep everyone together and celebrate with the newlyweds. If the guest list doesn’t contain a single table, split the kernels into separate tables, but in a small number to improve distribution and for which the couple can get away, pay attention to all of them.
Eating, drinking, cakes and sweets : With the idea of reducing costs with the size of the salon, the part that benefits the most can be that of food and drinks. If you invest in the quality of meals (lunch or dinner), snacks, drinks and even sweets, you can transform your celebration and create incredible memories. Here is the time to look for a special buffet or even a chef to create your menu with the amount you prefer. In these cases, one could think of a lunch or dinner with a starter, main course and dessert so that everyone can eat together.
Music for a special climate : The economy in other aspects of marriage can also give you a wider range of options if you choose other important details such as music. In this case, hiring a DJ or band to play live can make the mood even more special, regardless of the type of music you choose.
