When you wish upon a Wedding Planner

A small wedding can be as unforgettable and majestic as a wedding of 500 people.

As a wedding planner, I frequently plan and organize weddings for 300 guests, 40 guests or simply just for the bride and groom. Sometimes, I receive an email from a bride who timidly asks me if I can organize a wedding for 4! I always wonder why couples feel so shy about these type of requests. A small wedding can be as unforgettable and majestic as a wedding of 500 people.

We only have to know the couple’s tastes, wishes and of course, the main important detail, their story. So I thought about suggesting a few details for a wedding décor; a beautiful, petit and enchanting wedding. Little details can make such a huge difference. And sometimes, what we see in a small wedding could never be recreated in a larger one. Things are just what they are, and mainly what they tell: a love story. Yours!

If you have a nice and cosy backyard, some little details can make your wedding look fabulous and incredibly romantic. Add a few elements to each other and voilá!, you’ll put together wonderful details for an intimate wedding of 4 guests: bride, groom, their moms and dads.

Wedding for two? Imagine a tree which symbolizes the place where you first met, when you were 6 years old buddies. Who would tell that 20 years later you would get married to each other? Symbols like a tree, a lake or others are wonderful, natural elements to have them present in your wedding. Have your intimate celebration around important, symbolic elements and enjoy yourselves as a couple.

If you and your soul mate would love to give the best you can to your parents, maid of honour and best man you can have the most distinct table, worth a million dollars. Most tables for 300 guest will never be as rich and elegant as yours. Think about it.

Finally, a very personal advice; go for simplicity. Find a fantastic spot – like this one in Lisbon, Portugal – look deeply and passionately to each other’s eyes (this is the easiest part), then say Yes-I-Do and celebrate with a flute of champagne, while Christ the King blesses your new life together.
