Planning a wedding amid the coronavirus crisis? Good luck, it ain’t going to be easy! Getting married in times of a pandemic means big changes for both couples and wedding planners.
Luxury resorts are replaced by cozy homes. The term “Big Fat Indian Wedding” has been taken over by “Small/Intimate Safe Weddings”. However, what remains the same is how you beautify the ceremony, a.k.a choose the wedding decor. Doesn’t matter if you’re going for an intimate or a lavish wedding ceremony, leave no chance to match the decor with the mood of your ceremony to make it look visually pleasing. But, is it as easy as it sounds?
An intimate wedding allows every detail to be more personalized and special for the couple as well as the guests. Everything from the grand entrance to table candlestands, here is how can make every element at the wedding an unforgettable one:
#1. FOCUS ON WHAT MATTERS THE MOST
As you’re determining the design and details, it’s wise to first decide the important elements and skip the things that don’t matter. Write down a list of the priority items: it could be an open bar or a floral entrance. Once you have your list of priorities ready, invest in them and make them the star of the show.
#2 CHOOSE A VENUE THAT FITS YOUR GUESTS SIZE
Not having to fit hundreds of guests under one roof means that you are free to get creative with your venue. Do proper research beforehand on the venue to ensure that you choose the perfect space for the number of guests that you are expecting. For example, a private garden or a small estate can be great options for holding an ultra-cozy affair.
#3 ELIMINATE BIG STATEMENT PIECES
Suspend statement pieces like extravagant centerpieces or humungous lanterns from the ceiling; it can make the room feel smaller, while also creating a lot of drama, texture, and color to space. On the other hand, smaller styling details such as floral arrangements or comfortable seating and table layouts are a great way to make any area feel warm and cozy.
#4 CUSTOMIZE EVERYTHING
Personalize it all! When you have small guests even the most minor details matter. This is what makes an intimate wedding so fun! Introduce hand-finished touched and personalized flavors to make the ceremony feel warm.
For example, if the wedding is on a particular theme, customize decor that stays in contrast with that theme. Use personalized notes for each guest to make an emotional and everlasting impact.
#5. ENSURE EVERYTHING GOES AS PLANNED
Although you may feel that a small wedding isn’t on the same scale as a larger one, the flow and organization of the day still have to be clear to everyone at the party (including the bride and groom).
Don’t overlook even the smallest of details and make sure everyone understands the responsibilities assigned to them. After all, coordination and organization is the key to a successful intimate wedding!
