How to Make a Large Wedding Feel Intimate

Some couples like the idea of having a big wedding and want to invite their extended family, friends, and colleagues as well. While planning a larger wedding involves complex logistics, it also becomes important to focus on aspects like coziness.

It isn’t uncommon for weddings held on a larger scale to also become very spread-out. It means most of the guests end up interacting in pockets. That segregates people, which is something you don’t want happening at such special events. 

So does that mean you have to give up on that big wedding you have been dreaming about? Well, not really! There are many ways to make an expansive wedding venue seem intimate.

How to Create a Cozier Wedding Atmosphere

The correct table and chair distribution will create a cozier and more intimate atmosphere

If you want even a large wedding to feel intimate, there are certain things you must consider and plan accordingly. Here are some ideas that can help:

  • Use decorations and lighting to create intimate settings.
  • Use flowers to define parameters that are more intimate and create a cozy atmosphere.
  • Use special lighting elements to create a warm and intimate mood.
  • Have your reception seating family-style to keep everyone closer together in long rows of tables.
  • Make cozy lounge areas that keep guests close.
  • Create zones with decorations and flower arrangements so that your guests can connect with each other in a more intimate setting.
