So often weddings turn into a mass production instead of feeling like an intimate affair. Even if you are an extrovert and love to socialize, finding the time to engage in individual interaction with all your guests is difficult. Here are a couple tips to help you make your event feel like an intimate affair in a versatile event venue like the Allan House.
Create Mini Spaces Throughout
Lounges and other designated smaller spaces that are set up throughout the venue space will help it feel intimate and inspire conversation and mingling.
Experiment with Lighting
Lighting makes a huge impact on the overall ambiance. Soft, romantic, and diffused lighting creates a warm and welcoming aura in any setting. Incorporate creative options like candles or lanterns for a more enchanting and romantic feel.
Food stations are excellent for socializing as it allows the guests to interact while getting the food of their choice. It’s more relaxed and casual as opposed to staying seated in their designated spots.
Greet Your Guests
While the guests are enjoying their meal, the couple can go from table to table and say their thank yous and make small talk. That way you are not making anyone feel left out or neglected.
Dance with Friends and Family
As you have your first dance, be sure to invite all your loved ones to the dance floor so when you sway in the arms of your significant other, you are surrounded by all the people you care about.
Keep them Hooked
Think of activities to keep them entertained always. No one should feel bored at your big day. Allow them to fully become a part of your celebration by keeping them engaged.
