Wedding Style: Intimate Wedding Ideas?


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


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.
