How to organize your mini wedding
A smaller wedding can be the ideal format for those who want to lower their budget and save money without losing the style of a perfect wedding, but can also be used as a way to invest even more in quality in party services and celebrate with the family alone and the closest friends. Whatever your choice, take a look at these tips on how to organize and decorate a ceremony and mini wedding party:
Invited : getting the list of guests for a wedding can be relentless, after all, there is always someone from the family or friend of work to include and with that, the list does not stop growing! In mini wedding the idea is to call only the fundamental people to accompany you on this important day.
Therefore, those cousins that you do not have much contact or the colleagues you only see at work should not be called. Difficult as it may seem, try to think only of the people you most want to be together with you. To be considered a mini wedding, the list should not exceed 100 people between guests and companions, but ideally it should remain in the 70's. For those who want an even more intimate ceremony, the micro wedding serves up to 40 people.
Place of ceremony or party : As the guest list is reduced, you can dispense with the grand salons and think of more welcoming surroundings such as restaurants, country houses or even the beach! Everything will depend on your dream wedding style, be it rustic, traditional or even super modern. But for those who want even more affectionate memories, weddings in the backyard, in that mood of various American comedies, work very well and already relieve the payment of space!
Ideal time : For mini weddings, the most common is for the ceremony to take place during the afternoon and the party to last until the 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 outdoors.
Personalized decoration and intimate atmosphere : For those who are organizing their wedding, every detail of decoration counts, and if the proposal is to do something more intimate, some types of items are wild!
An example of this is the lights in garlands or even blinkers, which can be used to create a special and low illumination on the walls and even on the ceiling. In that case, opt for the yellow lights, they leave the atmosphere cozier! Another example is the rustic furniture or even the family silverware. If your mother, grandparents, aunts have any special items that will make all the difference in the decoration of the party, it is time to borrow, after all, no one says no to the bride and groom!
Another detail are custom or handmade items : For those who are trying to save money, it's worth organizing some of your family and friends to help you make some items handy. Godmothers and godparents are always at your service!
To complete the intimate decor, think about the layout of the tables at the time of the party and the meal you offer. For a list with fewer guests, worth thinking about a single table to behave everyone, so you keep everyone together and celebrating together with the bride and groom. If the guest list does not include a single table, divide the cores into separate tables, but in a small number to improve circulation and for whom the couple can get through, paying attention to everyone.
Food, drinks, cake and sweets : At the idea of reducing costs with the size of the salon, the part that can most benefit from this is that of food and drinks. Investing in the quality of meals (lunch or dinner), snacks, drinks and even candy can transform your celebration and create more incredible memories. Here is the time to look for a special buffet or even a chef to create your menu with the quantity you prefer of dishes. In those cases, one might think of a lunch or dinner complete with starter, main course and dessert for everyone to eat together.
Music for a special climate : The economy in other aspects of marriage can also give you a greater range of options when choosing other important details like music. In that case, hiring a DJ or a band to play live can make the mood even more special, regardless of the type of music you choose.
