With all that the Coronavirus pandemic has thrown up recently, it's no wonder many couples are shifting their focus from large weddings to small, more intimate weddings. If you are looking for some small wedding inspiration, look no further.
Small weddings can still be beautiful! The restrictions on guest numbers means you get to invite only those people who really matter. There's no more inviting your aunt's next door-but-one neighbour, or that person you went to school with because you're friends on Facebook! You get to invite those people who mean the most to you. You'll actually get chance to speak to them too! If you are postponing your larger celebration, you could send out some change of date cards. Speak to your stationer and see if this is an option.

Small weddings don't mean you have to miss out on the traditions. You can still have a wedding cake, you can still have your first dance and of course the speeches...! Single tier wedding cakes have become really popular over the last year, with some couples opting for a miniature version of a larger wedding cake design.

Going small in numbers means you can go big elsewhere. You can have amazing wedding flowers with large installations for extra impact. You could have a more luxurious wedding breakfast, or splash out more on table decor as you won't need as many place settings. Check out our Pinterest board for more small wedding inspiration.
You have more flexibility as to where you can have your wedding reception if your numbers are smaller. You could even have your wedding reception at home (if your garden is big enough)! There are many beautiful back yard weddings appearing all over Instagram and Pinterest which are so inspirational. Imagine being snuggled up round a camp fire toasting marshmallows, or on a beach eating fish and chips, watching the sun go down!
