Why Your Intimate Ceremony Will Be Perfect for You

Weddings are the pinnacle of beauty, love, and commitment, leaving many weddings to be a massive affair involving every single person in your life. With those weddings feeling like the norm, if you have to limit your gathering due to a financial restraint, family differences, or something beyond your control, it might feel disappointing to you. This guide will help you figure out how to make your intimate ceremony just as, if not more, valuable than any grandiose weddings.

Invite Your Strongest Supporters

While weddings often revolve around inviting everyone in your lives, including family members you may barely even speak to, intimate gatherings should focus on the two of you. Rather than worrying about inviting everyone, consider the people who have always supported you both the most. The wedding first and foremost is about celebrating your mutual love and commitment. Keeping your guest list to those who you know will support everything about you two allows for the day to prioritize your love.

Pick a Significant Venue

Many large venues can be costly and may feel impersonal; decreasing the wedding size opens unique options for where you choose to have your wedding. If you are trying to cut costs, you may consider locations that you and your partner have a mutual passion for, or perhaps a location that has a personal connection. It could be a place you have visited many times, or it could be your own backyard. If cost is not a factor, a destination wedding can be a beautiful opportunity to share your big day in the place of your dreams!

Create meaningful vows

Public speaking can be a terrifying concept for many of us, and it is also the last thing you need to have looming over you on a big day. In an intimate ceremony, you and your partner can profess your love for one another in a safe space. With only your most supportive squad beside you, taking the time to craft heartfelt vows embedded with your love story feels less intimidating. You and your partner can be tender and compassionate without fear that day.

Make Guests Feel Involved

Though you and your partner are the focal point of the night, your guests can completely change how you feel by the end of it. To ensure the closeness of an intimate wedding, invest in you and your guests’ interactions by incorporating nuanced connections to your guests. You may consider utilizing personalized name plates with gratitude written for each person. Perhaps use a wedding book with a Polaroid camera for guests to snap a picture as they write their names, leaving you and your guests with a memory of that day. No matter what method, involving your guests will help them to feel valued and overall, even more thrilled to be a part of your big day.

Truthfully, there is absolutely no wrong way to do your wedding. No matter your reasons for going small, just know that there are a plethora of steps that you can take to secure a day of life-long memories. This day marks the beginning of your journey through life together, why not start by prioritizing the two of you?
