Here at Drangan Video our bookings for weddings in Kilkenny and Tipperary for 2021/2022 are very promising, our couples are feeling much more optimistic about saying yes and are happy to adapt to new restrictions and guidelines. Covid has changed the face of the wedding industry in Ireland notably the restrictions on guest numbers.
Kilkenny couple Aisling and Ray were married in Foulkstown church on March 30th, the ceremony was celebrated by Fr. Dan Carroll he is a popular choice of celebrant for weddings in Kilkenny.
Aisling & Ray were planning on walking down the aisle of a packed church followed by the usual receiving line outside the door with lots of hugs and handshakes. They have planned a bigger reception party for later in the summer when restrictions are lifted, it was a small wedding ceremony but very big on emotion and a feeling of having made the right choice. I’m looking forward to been videographer again for their celebrations later in 2021.
Planning an unforgettable small wedding
Micro weddings are ideal if you are having a more intimate celebration with your close family and special friends and just like Aisling & Ray just because you have less guests doesn’t mean that the day will be short on fun or emotion. With proper planning a wedding party of 40 guests can be just as good and more special in many ways than having a guest list of 200.
The advantages of small weddings
For many couples cost is a big consideration when planning their big day. Having a wedding party with 50 guests will free up your budget and allow you to splash out on whats really important to you. From your choice of venue to the wedding menu or the band for the evening entertainment, a smaller wedding will give you more options on planning a day to remember.
More time to enjoy time with guests
Less guests allows more time for the couple to move around and spend time chatting chatting with each and every person. You will have more free time for visiting each table during the meal this makes for a much more enjoyable and intimate day. Also with fewer guests it will be much easier to organize accommodation for everyone in the same venue
The Perfect Venue for you
For most couples the choice of wedding venue is one of the most important considerations when setting the atmosphere for their big day. With a smaller guest list you will have much more flexibility when it comes to choosing the perfect intimate wedding reception. Little things are very important when planning a small wedding from flowers to wedding favors and place names, with less guests to worry about you can spend more time on the little things.
The value of entertainment
With larger weddings it can be difficult finding the right entertainment that everyone will be happy with, couples might opt for mainstream bands to avoid getting it wrong. With a smaller guest list you will know the likes and dislikes of all your guests, this means you have a good chance of finding entertainment that will please all your guests. And with savings on spending you might even consider hiring extra performers or musicians to transform your day into an unforgettable wedding celebration.
Try to keep it intimate
Small intimate weddings are just what it says on the tin They’re personal, they’re intimate, and more than anything they’re romantic. Try to focus on keeping it as personal as possible by keeping everyone close to you and each other. Use the small number of guests to your advantage and stretch out the celebrations over a long weekend, find a stunning and extravagant wedding venue that can cater to all your needs, enjoy been spoiled during the happiest time in your life.
