We are sharing ways to make your styled elopement or intimate wedding an unforgettable experience! You will find 5 tips below to make your celebration a memorable one, just like a wedding, but on a smaller scale. Cutting down the guest list will mean you have more of your budget to splurge on the details that matter the most.
-Hire a private chef to create a five-course farm-to-table menu featuring local cuisine for your guests to enjoy and elevate the dinner with fine wine pairings for each course. With a small group, you can really personalize every detail of the menu.
-Create a beautifully curated tabletop! Your budget will go much farther with having a smaller group, so you can really splurge on those special details to enhance the evening. Now is your chance to have vintage china, monogrammed napkins, custom menu’s, specialty linen, and more!
-Having a condensed guest list means that you have endless options for a venue! There are so many more choices, and you can utilize unique spaces that have everything you need in one place. Think gardens, family homes, small courtyards, restaurants, that would otherwise be a challenge with a large group. You can have fun with certain design elements to make a larger space feel more intimate.
-Fewer tables means you can have abundant floral! Fewer tables means your budget will go further, so you can have ultra lush flowers and candles, or that hanging floral install you’ve always dreamed of!
-Go hyper-custom with your paper details. Create personalized touches, like an individual flower at each place setting with a hand-calligraphed place card. Create an elopement or wedding announcement that you can send to all your nearest and dearest to let them know the big news!
