What are some ways to keep your wedding small and intimate?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s true that many women dream of having a big, fancy wedding. They want a large amount of guests and all the theatrics that come with having a huge wedding ceremony, but some brides like to keep things more low key. If you’re one of those women who like to keep things simple and intimate, Cupid has some tips:

1. Narrow down the guest list:¬†If your goal is to have a small wedding, then your guest list should reflect that. You should only invite your close friends and family to your special day. For an even more intimate surrounding, you should think about having the ceremony at your family’s home.

2. Don’t worry about the food:¬†The food shouldn’t be anything fancy if you’re looking to keep things simple. Have a relative or friend cook up some of their favorite dishes. Don’t worry about hiring an expensive baker to make your cake either. Instead, have someone you love and trust bake your cake for you. You’ll save plenty of money having all of your loved ones pitch in and you’ll all have some special memories you couldn’t have if you were to hire a caterer.

3. No big arrangements:¬†Think about using your own decorations for the wedding ceremony and reception. Ask some of your friends to help you put together a few cute flower arrangements and centerpieces. It doesn’t have to be anything over-the-top. As long as your wedding represents who you and your hubby are as a couple, the price you spend on everything shouldn’t matter.
