  • Wedding: January 2015 - Banquet Hall

Ours is going to be small as well. The ceremony will be at a small park under a prettt gazebo, the reception at his parents. Maybe 40 people tops. I think maybe we will do some sort of gift bag. Just a small inexpenisve ones for everyone bcuz its all family pretty much. I havent thought much more into small intimate things yet. But a beach wedding sounds amazing:) what intimate things are you doing??

  • Wedding: August 2014

Futuremrsde:  we are having 65 people. I have heard “wow that’s small!” as well as “wow that’s big!” lol. I think it’s on the small/medium side. It really is only our closest friends and family. I feel like I will be able to spend more time with each person which is really nice.  I’m not sure if these are intimate things but we’re going to have games outside – some nostalgic ones like those velcro catch ones. We’re also going to have British chocolates because my fiance is English. And photos of grandparent’s and parent’s wedding days around the room. Our theme is very much centered around our interests – favorite movies and books. I’m hoping it just feels like a really fun and cozy summer party. I’m really excited!

  • Wedding: June 2015 - Historic house and gardens

We are having about 30 people. We decided in the end to get rid of a lot of the traditions, like dancing and speeches because of the small guestlist (plus we’re really not dancing people). Because it’s small we’ve been able to go top shelf in most of our choices.

we are having a 7 course luncheon in a beutiful old building. The ceremony will be there too, and the photos can be done in the gardens there. We love good food and wine and will be focusing on that. Key words to keep it all in line are: timeless, elegant, classical (otherwise I would lose focus).

  • Wedding: September 2014 - Jacksonville Inn

Futuremrsde:  We have invited 50 people to our wedding and I expect we will have 35 guests. Our wedding and reception will be held in the same space, an outdoor garden of a well known hotel in the area. To make the reception feel intimate we are having long tables in a U shape, instead of smaller round tables. We want to encourage everyone to talk and socialize with one another. We don’t really have a theme but the feeling we are trying to create is an elegant garden dinner party. I am so happy we will be able to sit and chat with every single guest. I cannot wait!

  • Wedding: October 2014

Ours is going to be tiny…we’re sending 45 invites but only expecting like max of 30 people. I am secretly hoping for less…so the budget of it goes down. My FI has a huge family so most of his invites are being sent as courtesy invites, letting them know we are getting hitched.

  • Wedding: October 2014

We are inviting 114, but only expecting around 60 to show [MANY of them are 2200+ miles away, we don’t expect them to make it].

I wouldn’t say we are planning to make things more intimate, we just added alot of things for people to do so it keeps the party alive.

  • Wedding: December 2014

We are doing a small wedding as well. I prefer it that way 🙂 I have never dreamed of a large wedding, actually a small wedding on the beach.

We are sending out about 80 invites, but only expect about 35-40 guests. We’re getting married in Florida, so most of the people who are coming have already bought their tickets and booked their hotel rooms. I wouldn’t have it any other way.. I love the small intimate wedding. I am definitely getting one BIG picture with everyone who comes, and plan to run in the ocean in my dress at the end for fun!! 🙂 haha
