28 Jun 2022, 17:42 GMT+10

Would you like an intimate wedding in a small circle? Then an original and unforgettable mini-wedding might be just the right thing for you?!

It doesn't always have to be a big and pompous wedding! Even an intimate and original celebration without much planning effort has its advantages! Tiny weddings are becoming more and more popular - not only in times of Corona! We will show you how to celebrate a wedding in a small family circle and with your closest friends without much effort:

1. Original wedding location

With 15-30 guests, all doors are open to you. Whether it's a small restaurant or in a large castle, your own home or your parent's garden, there is no problem in offering enough space for everyone with a small number of guests. The little ones in particular will be happy to have plenty of space to romp around and play.

How about a cozy mountain hut or an elegant pavilion in a beautiful castle garden? There are many locations for small weddings! Advantage: These are usually not as fully booked as, for example, a huge castle or a large ballroom. Go for an outdoor wedding on a great lawn and save your honeymoon money. Getting married abroad is also easier with a smaller wedding party. As a company with Italian roots, wedding plannerKatharina from The Dress Outlet is particularly specialized in dreamy weddings in the southern heart of the USA and is at your side with the planning.

2. Manageable guest list

A maximum of 30 guests, no more! Our tip: Only invite your closest friends and relatives. Do you only have close contact with your parents and siblings and do you see the other family members maybe once a year and communicate little otherwise? Then you don't have to invite them. Stand by this decision and cross people off the list to keep the wedding really small! You should also be strict with yourself when choosing the other guests: Your best friend from childhood, who now hardly ever gets in touch, does not have to be invited. Neither do your colleagues. In addition to the groomsmen really should only your closest friends will be with you on your big day. So have the courage to say NO.

3. Free marriage

The free theologians of marriages are more aware that it is particularly important for small-scale weddings to create an atmosphere in which not only the bridal couple but also the guests with their emotions feel at ease. It's easy to hide in large groups, but in small groups, each individual becomes very present. Silvia from marriage is more. Therefore, during the preparations, we try to involve as many guests as possible in the wedding ceremony and to get in touch with them in order to get to know each other. If the atmosphere is right, everyone feels protected and cared for and can indulge their emotions freely. Some ritual elements also become much more intense and can be carried out completely with each individual, so that every guest feels part of this wedding ceremony. If you have some friends in the guests who are quite close to you, feel free to recommend them to choose affordable and gorgeous wedding guest dresses from THE DRESS OUTLET.

4. A delicious wedding meal

At a micro wedding, it makes sense to provide homemade food. Please ask all guests to bring something. Distributes starters, main courses and desserts fairly and organizes a great cake buffet for the afternoon. You don't want to do without a great caterer? No problem! As with the choice of location, you also have countless options when deciding on the wedding dinner. Whether buffet or menu, your wedding meal will be a taste experience. Celebrate in a chic restaurant or organize an unforgettable barbecue - be creative.

Wedding planner Katharina from The Dress Outlet knows: "A wedding in the closest circle offers the opportunity to focus on quality instead of quantity. For example, you have the option of having a multi-course dinner served at the table. With 100 guests, that would be a costly undertaking that can be very tedious to implement. With 15-30 guests, however, this can be implemented very well!"

5. Wedding cake

A small wedding doesn't have to be a multi-tiered wedding cake. Bake yourself or ask one of your guests to bake something. A small selection of cupcakes, cake pops or various pieces of cake from the confectioner is also ideal for a small wedding and can easily be ordered in advance.

6. Attention to detail - The wedding decorations

Think of an original wedding decoration that suits the style of the wedding. Pay particular attention to the detail, because it is precisely these little things that make an unforgettable wedding. A chic floral displays wildflowers or a cool chill-out lounge with rugs and armchairs, dream catchers in the trees and torches for dusk lighting. Many lovingly self-made details are eye-catchers! Maybe you even have enough dishes of your own and save yourself from renting something. Keep the table decorations minimalist and limit yourself to flowers and candles as decorations - that's all you need for a romantic atmosphere.

7. Original ideas to entertain guests

Of course, entertainment should not be neglected even at a small wedding! Since there are only a few people, you can also think of small games. Also, consider other original entertainment ideas to give guests some show. How about a photo call corner? Wedding guests can take funny pictures of themselves using the self-timer. Invest in an unforgettable wedding car or in a fantastic solo entertainer or jazz band. Creativity knows no limits.

The Dress Outlet's expert opinion on mini-weddings: "With small celebrations, the bridal couple has more time for each individual guest. You have time to have real conversations instead of being an extra at a huge celebration; your guests will definitely like that '.
