The new norm that we are living in at present has certainly changed the way we approach life. The way we interact with each other and how we maintain relationships have certainly evolved. And weddings, as well as who we invite and how we celebrate too have seen changes as we adapt to the new circumstances and environment that we now find ourselves in.
One trend that has seen an uptick is personalised and more intimate celebrations, typically an exchange of vows ceremony followed by a reception, for family and close friends only. With a smaller invite list, the couple will have the opportunity to spend more one-on-one time with those in attendance, ensuring a meaningful and memorable occasion to mark this milestone in life.
Some ideas to contemplate :
- A more intimate group provides you the opportunity to be more creative in terms of choosing a venue.
- Serve a customised menu perhaps now that there are fewer guests to cater for.
- Encourage your family and friends to stay at your chosen hotel too, of course at preferential room rates, and make it a wedding weekend!
