There is no doubt that the pandemic has created a significant impact on the wedding industry today. Emerging trends and new wedding arrangements have come to life. With the health restrictions in place, most couples now prefer an intimate, romantic wedding over a grand, dreamy one. If you are considering a small-sized wedding for 2022, continue scrolling as we walk you through some of the tried and tested tips to plan for an intimate wedding in 2022
1. Finalize the guest list
Couples who choose to do an intimate wedding must plan their wedding guest list strategically. This means that you have to consider streamlining your guest size by limiting the attendees to your immediate family members and closest friends. A strategic way to do this is to create 2 versions of your guest list – one for drafting all the possible guests without considering the ideal guest count first. From there, create another version that already considers downsizing the guest number. This helps you carefully eliminate and select the people who can attend and those who can watch the live stream instead – yep, it’s another option you can consider!
2. Personalize your style
Since this is an intimate romantic wedding, why not grab the chance and make it a little extra personal? Most couples prefer to do an intimate wedding mainly because it leaves ample room for authenticity in style and aesthetics. Make your intimate wedding a reflection of you as a couple!

3. Consider the wedding venue
As it goes without saying, considering the size of your chosen wedding venue is equally important to decide to have an intimate wedding for 2022. With COVID restrictions in place, choosing the right wedding venue for your ceremony and reception has to be large enough to accommodate all your guests while still observing the proper health protocols.
4. Play and explore with seating arrangements
As mentioned earlier, having an intimate wedding in 2022 leaves you more room to play with and explore your creativity – yes, even with the seating arrangements. You might want to consider having an extra-large round table (that’s appropriate for social distancing, of course) for 10-20 guests to fill more space. Or, you could have smaller tables with fewer guests with which you can still interact during dinner. The choice is totally up to you!
5. Enjoy and embrace the moment
And lastly, we highly recommend you simply enjoy and embrace your big day! One thing about having an intimate wedding is that it allows you to bond and interact with your guests at a more personal level – so take this chance to do so! You deserve to have an immeasurably memorable day with all the months of preparation and investment in your wedding.
