We had the most amazing time shooting at this location. The owners, Bonnie and Patrick, are the sweetest and most generous people. The amenities made it feel like multiple locations in one. We feel very lucky to have been able to shoot here for our music video. Thanks Patrick & Bonnie!

About Small Weddings

Small weddings are often the most intimate of nuptials, regardless of the guest list size. Small wedding venues serve as cozy homes for these special occasions and offer an inherently personal atmosphere to the ceremony. Hosts and planners appreciate that they can find venues that fit their budget while providing a beautiful backdrop for their celebration. Additionally, couples who choose this type of venue benefit from having more time to interact with their guests due to the cozier feel, allowing for a more relaxed environment.

Guests also enjoy smaller wedding venues because it allows them to mingle more easily with one another in an intimate setting. This creates an atmosphere where conversations can flow freely, and old friendships can be revived. Honoring traditions such as speeches, dances, and large family photos is also easier since smaller spaces offer less distraction and interference than larger venues. The ambiance of small wedding venues is conducive to giving each couple’s special day its unique flair that will forever be remembered by those present at the occasion.

The Best Small Wedding Venues

Small weddings can be as special and meaningful as large ones but often require a smaller venue to house the intimate gathering. Finding the perfect small wedding venue can be a challenge. However, several great options are available for couples looking to create an intimate and memorable experience. Here are some of the best venues for hosting a small wedding:

  • Bed and Breakfast
    A bed and breakfast is the ideal setting for an intimate wedding with a romantic atmosphere. You will have exclusive access to beautiful guest rooms, lush gardens, and delicious food, and you’ll also have access to experienced staff onsite who can help make your day perfect.
  • Private Residences
    Renting out a private residence is another excellent option to keep your wedding relatively small. This way, you'll have complete control over the environment, plus it allows for more privacy than larger venues. Furthermore, many private residences come with stunning views of their surrounding landscape – perfect for making special memories together.
  • Restaurants
    If you want something less traditional, consider holding your small wedding at a restaurant or bar. Restaurants typically offer a variety of seating areas that can accommodate any size gathering, so you'll have plenty of choices when it comes time to pick out your venue. Plus, many restaurants offer catering services if you need help with food preparation and serving, making them an ideal choice for smaller weddings.
  • Outdoor Venues
    Outdoor venues such as parks or beaches are great options for hosting an outdoor ceremony or reception in nature's beauty. They will provide plenty of space for guests to mingle and enjoy each other's company in the open air and bring lots of natural light, creating stunning photo backdrops. And since they don't require rental fees like other venues may require, they're also very budget-friendly options.

What to Look for in Small Wedding Venues

When planning a wedding, it can be challenging to choose the right venue. Small wedding venues are often preferred due to their cozy and intimate atmosphere. However, there are many factors to consider when choosing a small wedding venue, from the space size to the amenities offered. Here is a list of things to look for in a small wedding venue so that you can have the perfect day:

  • Location
    Ensure the location is convenient for guests and has enough parking for everyone. Consider looking for venues near major highways or with public transportation nearby.
  • Capacity
    Does the venue fit your guest list? Estimate how many people you want to invite and ensure your chosen space can comfortably accommodate them.
  • Services
    Check with the venue about their services, such as catering and rentals (tables, chairs, linens). Inquiring about other amenities like audio/visual equipment or an outdoor area is also beneficial if you want to host an outdoor ceremony.
  • Budget
    Be mindful of your budget when searching for a small wedding venue. Consider all costs involved when deciding, including rental fees and additional services, so you don't overspend on one aspect of your big day.

Small Wedding Venue Inspiration

Planning a small wedding can be as special and meaningful as planning a larger event. You can create an intimate and memorable celebration for your closest family and friends with a bit of creativity. Here are some ideas to help you plan the perfect small wedding:

  • Garden Party
    Have your ceremony in a delightful garden filled with flowers and greenery while your guests listen to string quartets or acoustic guitarists playing in the background. Follow it up with an outdoor reception with freshly picked vegetables and local wines.
  • Beachside Ceremony
    Exchange your vows on a sandy beach while waves crash against the shoreline. You can decorate chairs or benches with colorful fabrics, shells, or flowers to add a special touch. For the reception, choose a beach barbeque with plenty of seafood options.
  • Barnyard Bash
    If rustic charm is your style, go for a classic barnyard wedding. Transform an old barn into an inviting area for the ceremony and reception, complete with vintage decor and delicious farm-to-table cuisine.
  • Vintage Tea Party
    Hold your ceremony at an antique tea shop and have servers bring classic tea sandwiches, pastries, and deviled eggs during the reception. Allow guests to sip from delicate teacups as they mingle among colorful vintage furniture and decorations.
  • House Party
    Hosting at home is another excellent option for smaller weddings, especially if you have limited resources or want something more relaxed. Decorate each room to set different atmospheres, such as lounge areas where guests can play board games or trivia or musical areas where they can dance away the evening.
