Finding the Perfect Small Wedding Venue For Your Big Day


Finding the Perfect Small Wedding Venue For Your Big Day If you're looking to have a small and intimate wedding celebration there are plenty of exciting options for your venue and ceremony that will provide a stunning experience for you and your guests.

Size really does matter when it comes to weddings and the smaller the guest list usually means more options for the bride and groom when it comes to finding a suitable location and somewhere a little special to celebrate their nuptials.

Small wedding venues and more exclusive guest lists allow for the bride and groom to spend more time with everyone, especially when guests have travelled from interstate or overseas and also provide a more relaxed and genuine environment without the crushing crowds.

Benefits of a small wedding venue include:

A smaller wedding budget

This is a definite plus and means if you have a smaller venue booked you can indulge a little bit more in the food and wine for your guests. Rather than having a set menu for 100 or 150 people (or more), the benefits of a smaller wedding mean you can serve a smaller amount of people a personalized experience.

One on one chats with your guests

We've all been to weddings with hundreds of people, but when you break it down the bride ad groom can only have mere minutes to spend with each and every guest, and even then often some brides and grooms won't even get around to see everyone at a wedding with a huge guest list. When you have a smaller wedding venue for your celebration you can treat guests well and add in extra features that wouldn't be possible if you held a wedding extravaganza.

Guests will notice the details

Smaller weddings mean that guests will usually be able to take the time to experience the smaller details from your big day such as the photos, the entertainment, the finer touches you may have worked on to make your big day truly unique. In big weddings with swarms of guests, the little things just aren't as well noticed when there are hoards of guests everywhere.

Limiting the guest list will remove unfamiliar faces

If your great aunt is not someone you need on your guest list or your brother's neighbor, remove them from the guest list. It is truly liberating to remove people from a wedding guest list and having a small venue or more intimate wedding celebration allows for this.

Destination weddings

Small Wedding Ceremony Having a smaller guest list and a smaller venue allows for the possibility of a destination wedding, whether it be interstate, overseas or anywhere a little unique for that matter. Spend the days ahead of your wedding with your nearest and dearest relaxing and enjoying the surroundings of a resort or luxury accommodation and bring your guests on an extended wedding celebration experience so you can get a chance to really bond during the wedding week. Rather than a one-day affair, destination weddings are a wonderful way to celebrate your wedding with a smaller group of guests.
