Choosing a small wedding has become more popular in recent times for various reasons. It could be due to the current global pandemic, a desire to have an affordable wedding, or simply wanting an intimate ceremony with your closest friends and family. Whatever the reason might be, it is possible to have an elegant small wedding that is memorable and impactful. This blog post will discuss some tips on how to keep your small wedding elegant.

Keep it Simple

The key to an elegant small wedding is to keep things simple. Do not go overboard with decorations or the guest list as this could take away from the intimacy of the ceremony. Consider having a small and simple wedding cake, a few flowers for decoration, and a few close family members and friends as guests. This will create an intimate atmosphere, and your guests can focus on the love you share as a couple.

Pick an Intimate Wedding Venue

The venue plays a crucial role in the elegance of the wedding. You should pick a venue that creates an ambiance of intimacy. Maybe a small church, garden, or a mid-size event center that can accommodate a small guest count. This will allow you to have a more personalized wedding experience. It is a good idea to check out the venue before picking it to guarantee it is an intimate wedding event venue.

Focus on the Details

When planning a small wedding, details matter. You have a chance to indulge in finer details like personalized gifts for your guests or handwritten thank you notes, a special wedding arch, or an elegant set of chairs for your guests. These small touches will add an element of luxury to your wedding.

Have a Signature Cocktail or Cuisine

It's easy to get overwhelmed by the prospect of having to cater for a large number of guests. But with a smaller guest list, you have an opportunity to add a personal touch to your menu or drinks. Consider having a signature cocktail or cuisine inspired by your tastes and preferences. You can opt for a modern twist on classic cocktails or create something entirely new. This will add an elegant touch, which makes it a memorable experience for your guests.

Make it Personalized

Lastly, an elegant small wedding is one that reflects the tastes, preferences, and personalities of the couple. From the wedding vows to the guest favors, ensure everything is unique to you and your partner. This will allow you to look back on your wedding day with fondness for years to come.


Opting for a small wedding does not mean you have to compromise on class and elegance. In fact, it gives you an opportunity to create a more meaningful experience for you and your guests. Use these tips to design your elegant small wedding, and you will not regret it. Remember to focus on details, personalize, and most importantly, enjoy the magical day!
