How to Host a Small Wedding

Learn More About Small Wedding Preparations

Smaller weddings are on the minds of brides and grooms, given the reality of Covid-restrictions. But the wonderful silver lining is that having a smaller wedding means you can spend more money focusing on the details that will elevate your wedding day into something truly spectacular.

Linton Gardens is the perfect Central Coast wedding venue for a smaller, intimate wedding.

With acres of manicured gardens, a quaint historic chapel, an elegant marquee and a function room with a spectacular chandelier, the options for your smaller wedding reception are endless.

 

Your Smaller Guest List

This is an opportunity to choose only those people that you’re closest to, the A-team, to join you for your Central Coast wedding. If it’s difficult to decide who to invite, ask yourself who you would take out for an expensive dinner, or spend a long weekend with. Check your text messages and emails to see who you communicate with the most. Those are the people you want not just at your wedding, but into your married future.

Invest in Beautiful Stationery

With reduced guest numbers, you can invest in the most elegant and stylish invitations, placecards, menu and thank you cards. Make an unforgettable first impression when your guests open their invitation to see they’re invited to your reception venue, Linton Gardens – consider calligraphy, linen papers or letterpress that have a ‘wow’ factor.

Seating Arrangements

With fewer guests, you might like to consider one long table, as if you were hosting an elegant dinner party. Guests love to mingle, so consider moving guests two places along between courses.

Floral decor, styling details and hanging arrangements

You can now allocate a generous budget for special styling details that create ‘wow’ moments. Use an abundant array of flowers and foliage as a long table centrepiece, or create a hanging floral installation. Why not create soft lighting by using hundreds of fairy lights or candles? Make each and every guest feel special with a personalised Welcome sign, place cards and thank you gifts.
