How to Make a Large Wedding Personal and When Smaller Weddings can be Better
Flashy, big, and over the top events have long been the favored route for many when planning their party. We’re in search of the awe factor, that certain pizazz that gets the guests talking. But size doesn’t always matter. In fact, sometimes, smaller weddings can be better.
And we’re loving it!
Here’s why smaller weddings can be better…
While big, festive events are often heavily talked about, an intimate event has the opportunity to leave a lasting impression. In a wedding setting, for instance, two families have the opportunity to truly get to know each other and form a lasting bond. When guest lists top 300, the bride and groom do not have as much time to spend talking to each of their guests. And, often, unwanted family members appear when guest lists get too big.
However, if Dad is insisting on inviting the family dentist or the estranged fourth cousin, a bigger event can still be made to feel smaller with simple, personalized touches. This helps the long list of attendees become more familiar with the bride and groom.
We’ve gathered a few of our favorite personalized touches that make an event feel intimate and personal, regardless of its size.
A few ideas since we have so many and love to personalize events, include:
– Themed tables such as these tables with the couples favorite rock band names
– Escort cards that include the table names of your favorite places in the area you are getting married or nicknames for some of your guests.
– Photos of you and your guests strung up at the rehearsal dinner
