  • Wedding: November 2013

My best friend just got married at the beginning of March, and she had a super intimate wedding. There were literally 25 people there: parents, grandparents, siblings/significant others, and each had a friend apiece.

Essentially, she and her mom set up the church/reception themselves the day before and a little the morning of…they just had candles, and some glass bowls with water and a rose floating in them. The catering was set to be delivered and taken care of by one server, met by a coordinator (who my friend went to church with) while pictures were being done. They were married by her pastor. But if you aren’t a church-goer, maybe you could have a friend/family member get ordained? From what I understand, it can be done online 🙂

IMO, I don’t think it is completely possible to keep ALL strangers from being there. Otherwise, it’ll keep one or more of the close family/friends in attendance from completely enjoying the celebration because they will have to take care of things. The guy who set up the catering and kept everyone’s drinks fresh and the two women who did the photos didn’t inhibit the intimacy of the occasion at all. Really, having these people there just made the day flow so much easier and allowed her parents and us as guests be able to relax and enjoy the day. Also, you don’t want to have to be running around worrying about things getting done on your wedding day. My bestie was the most relaxed and calm bride that I have ever seen day-of, and her wedding was the sweetest, most intimate I have had the pleasure of being in attendance for!
