It doesn’t matter if your guest list is 20 or 100 people - every wedding requires meticulous planning. And the first item that needs to be picked is the venue. Having a small wedding opens up a whole world of possible venues. You can skip the ballroom or banquet hall and embrace a range of nontraditional locations. Luckily, Glasgow has plenty of these.
Restaurants are a great venue for a small wedding, they offer the convenience of having everything in one place. Just choose the restaurant wisely, you need to totally embrace the food, the decor and the ambiance because you cannot really change them once you book the space. Some other options to consider are garden terraces, clubs, art galleries or hotel suites. Because they are large open rooms, meant for a variety of purposes, these are all spaces that are easily adaptable to your needs. They also offer in-house catering, as well, making your event both memorable and manageable.
If there is a larger venue that you cannot forget - a museum, function rooms or heritage sites, for example, there are certainly ways to turn the space into a more intimate area. The trick is to avoid feeling like your wedding is being drowned within a much larger space. Table organisation is key here, as are lighting and flower placement. Use your imagination to craft an intimate feel, or even hunt out particular aspects of any interesting venue for smaller spaces that might suit your needs and then talk to the venue manager. Whatever you choose, just remember, this should be a day for you to enjoy!
