Celebrating a wedding with a small gathering of family and friends certainly makes it more intimate. Moreover, it works well when you are tied up on account of budget constraints which don't allow for a lavish reception party. You just need to do some smart thinking and plan ahead of time.
Plan everything keeping your budget in mind and work on even the smallest of the details so that you don't panic when very little time is left. You need to be innovative and get the best possible arrangements within your budget.
Planning a reception involves several aspects like preparing the guest list, selection of a venue, decor, music, catering, wedding cake, and wedding favors. Not everyone can celebrate like the rich and famous, but smart decisions on your part will help you make this event special and memorable.
Ideas for Planning a Small Yet Memorable Wedding Reception
Here are some ideas to help you organize the reception. Start by making a checklist and tick along as you move ahead.
Don't forget to prepare a song list of the favorite songs. You need to tell them your favorite song for your traditional first dance and all types of wedding music including romantic and other foot tapping songs that will create a fun ambiance. Also, remember to book a photographer, so that you can cherish the beautiful memories later.
Buy inexpensive and useful gifts like photo frames, scented candles, and candy boxes. The cost of the gift doesn't matter, the gratitude you wish to express towards them matters.
Once you have fixed the date, start planning every detail so that there is no reason to panic later. It's time to celebrate your love and look forward to spending life with your loved ones. Wish you a great married life ahead!
