“Intimate weddings are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. They’re more personal, more affordable, and more focused on the couple. If you’re thinking about having a small wedding, here are a few tips to help you get started:

Choose the right venue. The venue is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning a wedding, so it’s important to choose a place that reflects your style and personality. If you’re having a small wedding, you might want to consider a backyard, a park, or a small restaurant.
Keep the guest list short. One of the best things about a small wedding is that you can really get to know your guests. If you’re struggling to keep the guest list short, try making a list of your must-have guests and then fill in the rest with people you’d like to have there.
Don’t be afraid to DIY. DIY projects can help you save money and add a personal touch to your wedding. If you’re not sure where to start, there are plenty of resources available online and in libraries.
Focus on the things that are important to you. When you’re planning a small wedding, it’s important to focus on the things that are important to you and your partner. Don’t worry about what other people think, and don’t feel like you have to do everything that’s traditionally done at a wedding.
Enjoy the day! The most important thing is to enjoy your day. This is a special time for you and your partner, so make sure to savor every moment.”
