A big fat wedding may not be a “dream come true” for many couples planning to marry in 2020 or 2021. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, wedding event management companies in Pune encourage people to have an intimate wedding in the presence of only close family and friends. Massive social gatherings may not be possible in the foreseeable future. As social distancing is the need of the hour, many couples had heartbreak to cancel all their extravagant wedding arrangements.
But do not worry. Like always, YoursTruly Wedding Planners in Pune has got your back! We have curated some exciting, fun-loving, and “hatke” intimate wedding ideas that can still turn your D-day into the best moments of your life. The concept of intimate wedding feels cozy, romantic, and, of course, less stressful. Every moment will be extra special for your partner and your guests. Most importantly, you can save a massive amount of time and money to plan an exotic honeymoon getaway, once the lockdown ends!
A Terrace Wedding:
The idea of an open-air wedding can still get on-board. Choose an open area that can comfortably accommodate your guests. We recommend a terrace wedding or a garden-lawn wedding. A terrace gives you ample space to fit in all your guests. You can use drapes, flowers, and gold-silver shimmers to deck up your wedding mandap site.
Bonus tip: If you can move to your ancestor’s bungalow or farmhouse, drive your guests there for an exotic, outlandish wedding.
A Tournament Wedding:
It can be any sports game like football, volleyball, or basketball. With 50 guests, you can divide a team of 25-25 wedding guests. Let the bride and groom play along. Games add more fun to any occasion, and since it will be an intimate wedding, you don’t have to worry about offending someone, as each guest will be special, and present at the wedding to have some fun.
Bonus Tip: Take some hints from the movie “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” where the lead actor and actress encourage their royal guests to play football, and as audience we all loved the way everyone enjoyed it thoroughly.
A Surprise Road Show:
We understand how disheartened it is to not invite all your friends and loved ones to the wedding. Since the situation demands an intimate wedding with a few guests, YoursTruly can arrange a guest drive where the guests who didn’t made to your wedding can drive their car through your front door, giving the bride a heart-warming vidaai.
Bonus Tip: Ask your guests to hold lovely wedding props, postures, and banners to make the atmosphere fun-loving, exciting, and all about love.
A Zoom Call:
The guests or family members who stay in another state or country, and couldn’t make to the wedding, we can arrange a zoom call where all the guests can virtually be present and bless the newly-weds.
Bonus Tip: We can prepare a surprise meal box for all the left-out guests. A photographer can be arranged to click their photos to add the images in your wedding memories.
A DIY décor for an intimate wedding was trending long before the pandemic hit this world. Dream catchers, string lights, wall hangings, and colourful drapes – You just have to unleash your inner creativity. For more “hatke” ideas, you can contact our YoursTruly team, and we can help you prepare DIY wedding decoration elements to style up your home for a fun wedding feel. Hiring a wedding planner for an intimate wedding can turn out to be a blessing, as they got an access to décor elements and wedding accessories.
Bonus Tip: Ask your family and friends to bring their floral decors, cushions, comfy linens, and décor items to create a lovely space. You can return them after the wedding.
We have all tried our hands on Diwali lighting arrangements to create a festive environment at our home. An intimate wedding arrangement is all about levelling up the lighting arrangements. Fairy lights, scented candles, chandeliers, and statement lights are worth trying for a dramatic, visually appealing look.
Bonus Tip: Bring your music system out in the garden. Throw some pillows and cushions for a night beneath the sky and twinkling lights, and you will not regret missing your extravagant Sangeet ceremony.
Delicious home-made food:
You can hire a trusted chef to prepare exotic dishes for a grand wedding feast. An intimate wedding will have 20-50 guests (Government has restricted gathering more than 50 people for any event or ceremony). You can also try the “potluck” concept, where everyone channels their inner chef skills and bring mouth-watering dishes on the table. You can also ask a professional wedding planner for recommendations, as they have a strong network of catering service providers who ensure the client’s safety and food hygiene.
Bonus Tip: Open the backyard of your farmhouse and arrange a customized kitchen so that your chefs can prepare snacks, drinks, and cuisines to avoid giant mess and hassles around the house.
To make the wedding more personal – Plan a dinner where both the groom’s family and the bride’s family bring their hand-made food to the table. This idea can be executed in a challenge form where there can be some prize or gift hamper for the winning team.
Bonus Tip: Don’t let the bride and groom rest the entire time. Push them to the kitchen to prepare a desert together. There first cooking experience together will surely be worth-celebrating, and watching them exchange a good laugh will be a treat to watch for every family members.
