Small Wedding Ideas

Are you stuck and just can't come up with some great small wedding ideas? Small weddings are the perfect chance to have things just the way you like without having to worry about a large number of guests. It also gives you the opportunity to have your guests participate in both the ceremony and the reception to make the event truly unforgettable. Plus, small weddings are easier on everyone's budget while still allowing for a beautiful time.

Small Wedding Ideas: Decoration

When the wedding is small and intimate, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) brides can put all their creativity to the test. Coming up with small wedding ideas can be a lot of fun! Centerpieces and wedding favors are much easier to make than to buy when the party is smaller. Centerpieces can be anything from fresh flowers in a quaint glass vase, to an arrangement of colorful votive candles, to a tiny aquarium, to a mini Christmas tree, depending on the season and theme of your event.

Now it is time to come up with small wedding ideas for the wedding ceremony. Small wedding ceremonies are the perfect chance to get everyone involved. You can have members of both families join in the celebration by reading Bible passages, personal speeches or short poems of love.

Small Wedding Ideas: Reception

What king of small wedding ideas can you come up with for the reception? Receptions for small weddings are often much more fun than huge receptions for hundreds of guests. Small wedding receptions can be intimate dinner parties at a family member's home or at a fancy restaurant. As mentioned earlier, they can include simple DIY centerpieces and favors. Or they can be more casual, such as a Sunday barbecue.

Plus, if your reception is small, you can add an original touch by serving wedding cupcakes instead of one wedding cake or making it a poolside reception. If you have small destination wedding, the reception can be combined with other hotel or tourist activities to enjoy some quality time with your loved ones and closest friends.
