What to Expect When Planning an Intimate Wedding in Orlando


An intimate wedding in Orlando looks a little different than what you might expect. It’s a way for you to personalize your wedding and make it your own, save a little money, and can actually be more fun than rather large weddings in the area. We have had the privilege of being a part of several intimate weddings, and have a lot ideas of what to expect when planning one. Keep reading to find out!

You’ll Spend Less Money

Overall, a smaller wedding means you won’t have to pay as much in the end! The food, bar services, catering, favors, decorations, etc. . . would all most likely be less money for you to spend! This means you will be able to splurge on the items that are really important to you!

Want to add an Orlando photo booth rental? Not a problem! Want to have more extravagant floral arrangements? Definitely doable with all the money you’d be saving!

Smaller Venue

This one may seem obvious, but when you have a smaller wedding your options open up to more venue options. This means you could choose a wedding venue in Orlando like a bed and breakfast, or even a nice restaurant that can fit your group’s size as well. A smaller wedding venue can also sometimes mean a smaller price tag!

Not only are you narrowing down your guest list so it’s just your closest family and friends, but you’re also helping your wallet. One of our favorite intimate wedding venue locations in Orlando, FL is Paddlefish in Disney Springs!

More Catering Options

When it comes to finding a catering option in Orlando, you won’t be tied down to a place that only serves larger crowds. You’ll really be able to choose the catering option that fits your wedding style and taste buds the best.

Smaller venues in the Orlando area will oftentimes allow you to bring in your own catering as well, so you really have an open field to choose what you want. This also applies to bar services. An open bar or choosing an hour of the night for an open bar is much more doable with a smaller guest list!
