Wedding Style: Intimate Wedding Ideas?

Q:

We're thinking of having an intimate wedding. What are our options?

A:

There are many ways to do your wedding with "intimate" style. Intimate refers to the size of your wedding (traditionally fewer than 75 guests) and the style (usually more low-key than the Saturday night blowout bash). Intimate could mean you serve a champagne brunch instead of a sit-down, candlelit dinner, or it could mean you invite 15 favorite friends and relatives to the Bahamas for a weekend-long celebration, or it could mean a gathering in the pasture behind your parents' farm. While we love large-scale partying, intimate weddings have a wonderful, close-knit vibe, and can be just as stylish and elegant as bigger celebrations. Your intimate celebration can be whatever you envision.
