BACK TO BASICS WEDDING VENUE
Lhia Ubaldo | June 24, 2020
Simple, intimate and basic weddings are the new normal.
When it comes to wedding ceremonies, we can all agree that size matters. Some prefer their wedding to be a grand celebration, inviting 80 – 300 guests. While some prefer it in a smaller number. But 2020 has placed us back to simple times. Today, the simpler and fewer guests, the better due to the new norm.
Simple and basic wedding ceremonies - they’re (generally) less expensive and just as meaningful and memorable as weddings that pull out all the stops. And they’re less stressful. When there are less details to worry about, there is less anxiety.
Perhaps you adore simple and basic weddings too, but you’re not sure how to pull it off for your own wedding. Or maybe you think simple weddings have to sacrifice style. Not so! So how do you have one? Luckily, we’ve gathered some great ideas if you want your wedding ceremony to be as simple as possible.
GUESTLIST – KEEP IT PERSONAL & COMFORTABLE
Your exchange of vows and the celebration followed should be stress-free and an enjoyable day centered around the love shared between you and your partner. This way, you’ll be able to have a one-on-one chat with your guests and you can have longer conversations with them. And no need to worry since majority of your guests know each other already.
GET A WEDDING COORDINATOR
It doesn’t have to be a fancy wedding coordinator, but can simply be a family member who you trust to run things according to your plan. If you have someone else taking care of all the details on the day of the wedding yourself, you don’t have to worry about it, and can relax and enjoy the festivities.
FORGET FANCY INVITATIONS – KEEP IT SIMPLE
Traditional wedding invitations have different envelopes, tissue papers, some other special papers, and that’s all before you even get to the invitation itself. Its way too much trouble and too expensive.
SKIP WHAT IS NOT NECESSARY
As you are determining the details, skip out the things that aren’t important and necessary. Do you really need 2 bands to play? A very popular host? Does your wedding favors need to be expensive wines?
We suggest you just spend more one-on-one time with your guests, so some of those extras aren’t worth the cost.
SPEND WISELY – KNOW WHAT YOU NEED
Your budget will decrease with fewer guests, so really do think about those extra funds to really enhance the evening. Use your extra money to enhance what really matters in your wedding.
We say invest on the photographer, since weddings are cherished moments in life. A good photographer can capture great moments in your wedding day and can make it look timeless so that you can relieve your special day with your partner after years and years of being together.
YOUR LOCATION – AU NATUREL
Tip: Have your reception at the same place!
Simple is always defined by being natural and easily understood; not complicated. Choose a gorgeous setting that needs little adornment. That way you won’t have to worry about decorating details. A big spacious garden surrounded by greens and flowers should be enough. And what better venue to book than Jardin de Miramar’s garden venues.
Natural beauty, for the win!
A wedding is as simple as you make it, but no amount of planning (or stressing!) can prevent things from going wrong. So stay positive, breathe deeply, and remember that just being married is what matters most! Bridezilla? More like bride-chill-a!
