Some couples think that to have a memorable wedding, they need to hold it in a big venue. The truth is, you can have a beautiful and memorable wedding even in small wedding venues. A small intimate wedding venue is not only practical but it makes the event more special since small venues can give people that impression of intimacy and closeness. For a small venue to work, all you need is good space management. What follows are some tips on how you can make the most of a small space to create the perfect wedding venue.
If you are holding your wedding in a small venue, your only real concern is to fit all of your guests inside and make them feel comfortable. You don’t want them to feel uncomfortable especially those who have the tendency to suffer from claustrophobia. This is why you need to give the impression that the venue is bigger than it really is. One of the things that you can do is to use individual chairs instead of benches that can take up lots of space.
Another way to maximise a small wedding space is by decorating it the right way, When it comes to decorating a small wedding space, less is more. Do not place big pieces that can make the space more cramped. Instead, choose pieces that are not bulky such as long slender plants in tall vases. You can also use mirrors in the venue that will give the illusion of depth and make the venue seem bigger.
Make every inch count. Make sure that all available space is utilised. Video cameras and other equipment should not be in their proper places and not in the way of guests. You also prepare a seating plan for your guests so they will not be scattered all over the venue.
