Many people want to have an intimate atmosphere during their wedding because of the soft and romantic feelings that atmosphere provides. But an intimate atmosphere can seem difficult to achieve, especially when you have more than 100 guests.
The good news is, whether you can count the number of your guests on one hand or you have too many to DIY invitations for, there are many simple ways you can bring close-knit and intimate vibes to your wedding.
Personalize your decor
DIY wedding decorations aren’t just a major wedding trend right now because they save money. They’re also a big trend because they reflect who you are and the tastes of the couple.
Personalized decor adds a custom touch to your nuptials and makes a wedding venue feel more like a home than a rental space. You can add personalized touches in a variety of ways such as stirring up signature cocktails, decorating with family photos, or using your favorite books for certain aspects of decor.
Dim the lights
Dim lighting with candlelight helps to create an intimate setting no matter which venue you choose. Consider using a bright outdoor venue and complementing it with a dimly lit indoor venue so when the guests come inside the venue feels cozier.
Just be sure the way you dim the lights creates a romantic look and you’re not making it too dark. There’s a fine line between warm lighting and not being able to see. Pair warmer lighting with soft fabrics and textures to bring everything together.
Choose a cozy event venue space
It can be hard to make your wedding venue a cozy and intimate space when you’re on the top floor of a hotel. That said, consider the intimacy of the different venues before you choose one.
