Anybody who has attended elaborate wedding functions knows how huge the gatherings can get. While a lot of people love to host lavish galas for their wedding celebrations, it’s not something many couples enjoy these days. And we can understand! Nothing can be more annoying than having to spend the most special day of your life by meeting not-so-close relatives, extended families, and distant friends.
Your wedding is a collection of some of the most important moments in your life and we can get why you’d want to spend it with only the ones who are closest to your heart. The best way to avoid indulging in small talk with distant relatives and friends on your D-Day is to have an intimate wedding with only close friends and family members. This way, you avoid the chaos and you get to enjoy your wedding festivities like they are supposed to be enjoyed.
And, that's why your wedding venue is one of the most things to choose so that you and your guests have a beautiful wedding in a stunning property. So, without any further ado, let’s dive in and see what all amazing wedding venue options you can choose from to celebrate the dreamiest day of your life with only a few close ones.
Also, it’s much safer in these times to steer clear of overcrowding your wedding celebrations! Keeping in mind intimate weddings, we have come up with a list of venues that will be perfect for a small, cosy celebration with only a few selected people you love the most. Remember how Ranveer-Deepika and Virat-Anushka did it at their wedding? Something just like that! So, brides get ready as we get you perfect venues to host your 50 guests wedding!
Now that the lockdown has been lifted and it’s allowed to gather around 50 people for your wedding at a venue of your choice, we thought that a religious place would be a great option. Most couples have traditional ceremonies during their wedding, so it only makes sense to do the rituals at a religious place. You can later hold a reception party at any of the other venue options listed below.
Airbnbs are a boon for couples who want a fun wedding without the hustle and chaos of a big wedding, but also want a beautiful venue for their intimate wedding. Almost every city in the world now has a wide range of Airbnb properties to choose from. Depending upon the size of your gathering and the amenities you require, you can pick a beautiful property and hold your intimate ceremony there.
If your house has a huge courtyard then that is it - that’s the perfect venue for an intimate wedding. With the right decor and music and other arrangements, your backyard can be transformed into a gorgeous venue for your private wedding ceremony. This also has a huge added benefit - you save a lot of renting another venue and you can use all the money you save here into getting settled into your new life. You can also put it away as a ‘vacation fund’, you know!
If your wedding party is only going to be for about 10-15 people, then you don’t even need to step out of your house to look for a venue, literally! Your living room can suffice for the celebrations. It’ll be like a get-together with your most special ones to celebrate the beginning of a new journey from the place which is closest to your heart - your home.
Another beautiful location for an intimate wedding where you can save a lot of money without compromising on the prettiness of the ceremony is the terrace of your house. If you don’t have a huge living room or a courtyard, you can always turn to the good old’ terrace. Again, the right decor and arrangements can elevate the beauty of this location many times. A few beautifully decorated tables, some flowers, fairy lights, and slow music… can you imagine it? We can!
It could be your garden or the park/garden in your residential society. Most societies allow their residents to use the garden, clubhouse, community hall, etc. to hold their small, intimate functions. You can check if you have any such provisions and well, that right there is a perfect venue for your intimate wedding. No hassle at all!
Now that restaurants and hotels are also opening up slowly, you could maybe hire a small and cosy restaurant of your choice for a day to celebrate the most special day in your life. It could be a rooftop restaurant or a garden restaurant or maybe one that holds a special meaning for you and your spouse! Imagine getting married at the same place where you had your first date, for example. Romantic, right?
Backyard weddings are a huge hit in the West and we think it’s about time we learn a thing or two from how they do it. If your house doesn’t have a backyard, you could maybe ask a couple of close friends or relatives who do and turn that into a dreamy venue for your intimate wedding. There is something extremely special and cosy about holding a wedding ceremony in the backyard, with twinkling lights, the open sky, and just happiness all around. This is an experience you and all your guests will hold close to their hearts forever, trust us.
Don’t let the current situation dishearten you or discourage you from holding a special wedding ceremony of your dreams, dear bride-to-be! After all, your wedding day is all about love, joy, and laughter, and the only people that matter is the closest ones. We hope you pick a beautiful venue for your intimate wedding and have an even prettier ceremony!
