Recent research shows that average engagement periods have drastically reduced from 21 months in 2007 to 18 months in 2013. This means that couples are investing less time in planning big ceremonies. This essentially translates to intimate low key ceremonies with the number of invited guests down by up to 10 percent.
Low key weddings offers couples flexibility and the ability to integrate their personalities into the guest lists. This is done by selecting locations and activities which are impossible with a large number of guests. The following are some of the most popular low key wedding ideas.
1. Farm weddings. This is ideal for couples who can access a farm. Couple can also experiment with a wild idea such as wedding in a barn. This provides all weather protection for you and your guests. An open air wedding in a farm is also another great idea but carries the risk of interference from the elements.
2. Wedding at your local hotel. Most couples prefer to wed at their local hotels and have a night long mini bar raiding party in their suites. It is less glamorous, but the guests will surely have a good time.
3. Backyard weddings. This is a simple low key wedding that guarantees you great savings. The guests can then be treated to a reception in the house. Make it fun by using custom made invitation cards and giving guests party favors.
Even with low key weddings, you can still write your own customized wedding vows, have guests do the readings and have people throw confetti, bubbles or rice as you walk down the aisle. The main requirement is to read your wows and say ‘I do’ to have a life long commitment.
