16 Stunning Small Wedding Cakes for Intimate Weddings

A massive wedding cake is not necessary at receptions, especially at this crazy time. Consider downsizing the cake if you’re nervous about the idea of ordering and serving big cake when you’re having an intimate wedding. Sometimes, simplicity speaks loudest. Instead, focus on the cake display. Consider serving the cake in something unexpected, like a vintage bar cart, or max out the decors on the cake table, surrounding a simple white cake with vases of buds or flickering candles. Pretty piping, fresh florals, cute cake toppers, sugar flowers, and unique adornments can all be added to transform a petite one-to-three tier confection into a stylish design worthy of a spectacular wedding celebration. Check out these stunning small wedding cakes and get inspired.

Wedding Trends 2021-Small Intimate Wedding Reception Ideas

In the year 2021, we’ll see a continuation of smaller, more intimate weddings, like weddings under 150. “We are finding couples are looking for more intimate celebrations for 2021 and 22, approximately 40-50 less guests to accommodate this trend. Couples are allocating dollars to the guest experience. This style of wedding includes more branded elements and customized areas than a traditional wedding. The ceremony has more decorative seating set in the round or crescent style setting. The dinner reception has elevated, stadium-like levels on the perimeter of the space for a 3-tiered seating experience so everyone Is looking over at the entertainment, to the dance floor, and most importantly the bride and groom as the event’s focal point. Couples will embrace the gala bash experience and the heightened energy this wedding style brings.” – AJ Williams, President + Creative Director of AJ Events

Shrinking the event down to a cozy, intimate size guarantees you’ll love where your money goes and have tons of memories with every single guest. But there’s more to it than a 90 percent decrease in your guest list. There are planning changes to make, details to consider, and a proportionally larger budget to work with. Today we’re sharing some great ideas for intimate wedding reception ideas. Get a cup of coffee and let’s check them out.

Top 10 Winter Wedding Color Ideas for 2020

Okay, so the hard part is over—you’ve decided when you want to get married and maybe you’ve even booked a venue. Good work! And if I may say, a winter wedding is an excellent choice. The season is so underrated! First of all, it’s a naturally romantic time of year. From the lights twinkling in the trees to all the opportunities to cozy up next to your lover on those cold, cold nights, it’s impossible not to feel all kinds of smitten. There was a reason Lorelai Gilmore said snow was like catnip, people!

Winter weddings are also the epitome of glam. It doesn’t get more elegant than dramatic outerwear, cocktails by the fireplace, horse-drawn carriages, and dinners by candlelight. And you probably already know this, as you picked the date yourself, but I’m willing to bet your big day will feel even more special because it won’t be sandwiched between a million summer nuptials. Check out these gorgeous winter wedding colors and get inspired.

Sage, Burgundy and Blush
The combo of pinks and dark green creates a cozy vibe that’s perfect for an indoor or an outdoor winter wedding. Think of sage as your base, while the pink can serve as the pop (in your flowers, centerpieces, and cake topper) that ties it all together.

Shades of Blue and White
Play up the hues of a snowy night with soft blue as your focal point and pair it with white accents. Your bridesmaids will look both elegant and understated in the muted tone, and you have the flexibility to dress your groomsmen in the same palette since it won’t be super loud.

Black and Gold
If you’re planning to get married on New Year’s Eve, listen up, because you should seriously consider black and gold as your theme. The luxurious combo will make your guests feel like they’re at a party at Gatsby’s mansion.

Gray and Pale Blue
Personally, I’m obsessed with these winter jewel tones. Opt for bejeweled bridesmaid dresses, chandelier-inspired centerpieces, and a glitter-frosted cake. Oh, and a sparkler send-off to close out the night is a must.

Emerald and Neutrals
Bright green gives your day a verdant feel, even if you’re saying “I do” in the dead of winter. It’s a bold color, so everything from the bridesmaid dresses to the napkins will stand out. Balance out the rich emerald with neutral accents to make sure the spotlight stays on you.

Copper and Greenery
If you want to go bold, pair these shades of green to create a winter wonderland. The copper is so appropriate given the season and can create the feeling that you’re celebrating inside a snow globe.
