Sometimes big weddings aren’t for everyone. A cosy wedding with fewer people can sometimes be a more personal and intimate occasion. You’ll have a better chance of spending quality time with all your guests and getting them involved on your big day.

Bigger doesn’t always mean better so we’ve put together a few ideas to help make intimate weddings in Derby extra special.

Smaller weddings mean you can spend more time on the little things and paying attention to the details. Why not dress your tables with quirky place settings or even make your own table decorations? Splurge on some of the details that will make your wedding look extra special. Those small details will stand out at a smaller wedding and help create an atmosphere.

Make the most of Entertainment

Keep your guests entertained throughout the day and get them involved in activities such as a murder mystery or karaoke. Make your wedding a little quirky and add a photo booth to get snaps of all your guests. If you’re struggling for ideas to keep your guests entertained why not hire a magician or themed musician? With a smaller group these people will be able to keep your entire party entertained throughout the day.

An intimate wedding setting is a fantastic opportunity to make your entertainment more engaging, interesting and fun.
