Welcome to Wedded Luxe, The Blog!! I’m Deniesha the planner & designer behind the blog. I believe everyone deserves luxury in life. It’s not about the amount of money you spend on your wedding but the quality of the service you receive. No matter your budget, you should have the best wedding planning experience possible and adding luxury will do the trick!
A wedding with less than 100 guests is considered a small wedding. The first step to having any wedding is choosing a venue and for an intimate wedding this could be a challenge. Choosing the right size venue is what you are looking for. You want a venue that isn't too big or too small, it needs to be just right. Comfortable enough to hold your guests and enough space to accommodate the type of wedding you are having during your reception. This would be dancing, food services, entertainment, etc.
80 to 100 Guests Most catering halls have a smaller room that can accommodate your wedding comfortably so this is an easier find than you may think. If there is a bigger room available, they may offer you an upgrade at no extra cost but do not get blind sided by the upgrade. The bigger picture is the overall feel for your wedding. The bigger room will take away from having an intimate setting.
50 to 80 Guests This may cause a challenge as most banquet halls have a minimum that you must meet. Whether you make the cut or not, you will have to pay their minimum number and you don't want pay for guests that are not attending or invite more guests just to have the venue. Your venue selection can now take place in a loft style space that can hold up to 100 people seated. You will not have to worry about paying for extra seats and there is just enough space for a seated dinner with dancing.
Under 50 Guests If your wedding is under 50 guests, you may consider having your wedding at your favorite restaurant. You may not be able to have dancing because you need a cabaret license in order to do so but you can alway check first. Having your wedding reception at restaurant is like having a fabulous dinner party for your closest friends. It's more social than a party atmosphere.
A small guest list doesn't mean small ideas for your wedding. Intimate weddings can have just as much elegance, style and of course fabulousity as a large wedding. When you have a small wedding, you a lot of flexibility for grand ideas because your guests list is smaller so dream BIG!!
