At a time when practicing social distancing has become a requirement, many couples are rethinking ways they can celebrate their marriage that draws on closeness with family and friends with a very intimate gathering that ‘wows’ in ways unlike ever before.
New, over the top experiences for smaller crowds at weddings, makes for a great opportunity to take advantage of all of the cool enhancements offered by a venue that you otherwise may not have been able to include.
Here are 4 ideas for making a lasting impression at your smaller wedding celebration.
1. Impress with an Ice Sculpture
You can add an impressive accent to any table with an ice sculpture or carving. Not only are these visually appealing, but they’re also so memorable. Having an extra fun item that might normally get nixed with a larger wedding, a smaller wedding leaves you more room for these types of accent upgrades.
2. Extend Your Reception Time
Weddings are so magical no one really wants the day to end. You can opt to extend your reception time or even your cocktail hour as an enhancement at your gathering so that those close to you who you have invited to come to celebrate the day with you can spend even more time enjoying it.
3. Enhanced Food & Drink Options
Give guests something to remember. Fill their plates with lavish gourmet upgrades like fresh lobster tails and NY strip steaks. Add a fancy candy bar or send guests home with to-go bags of treats as a sentiment and extended thank you for their participation. You can also upgrade your drink selection or even offer to make a customized martini for guests!
4. Upgraded Décor
Put a little more focus on the details all the way down to table linen enhancements to really set a special mood for your event. Enhancements like chair covers and custom tablecloths can further accent your color scheme. Add gold or silver chargers for an even greater touch of elegance.
