Make an intimate celebration feel extra-special with these small wedding ideas that have a big impact. We've got venue advice, décor inspiration and tips for how to ensure your day feels unique. 

The best thing about having a small wedding is that you can really treat your guests. We’re not just talking in terms of making the wedding budget go further, although that does play a part – we mean those small wedding ideas that make each person feel really special.

Writing an individual thank-you note to put on each place setting, for example, is a marathon for a guest list of 100+, but perfectly achievable for 10-20.

What’s more, having fewer guests gives you the chance to get creative with your wedding venue. You can prioritise finding a space you love over finding a space large enough to fit everyone, whether you’re looking at small wedding venues or private rooms within larger venues.

If you’ve decided that you want the size of your wedding to be more on the petite side, these are our favourite ideas for making your day unique and memorable.
