A smaller wedding does not mean smaller style! To help inspire you, we’re sharing a handful of ways that you can pull off a small, yet elegant intimate wedding, featuring wedding design ideas from a recent styled shoot at the bright and airy boutique Noelle Hotel in Nashville.
Up Close and Personal
By far the most rewarding aspect of hosting an intimate wedding is that you can be truly yourself, as you will be most comfortable amongst the special few whom you invited. With less people around, your guests will also feel more connected to you, as they witness this milestone in your lives and share in your emotions. As shown with our Harlin Chairs, create a seating area that allows everyone to see, hear and be a part of the intimate ceremony.

Elegant Place Settings
When it comes to planning a small wedding, you can still make a statement! Take the elegant table setting we created, which includes our Gold Austin Flatware, Glass Mosaic China, Glass Charger with Gold Rim, and White Round China. It absolutely POPs on the rich Blue Velvet Linens! We were also careful in our choice of Cybil Glassware which, while slightly more whimsical, still fits into the overall aesthetic.
Make the Most of Your Venue
Often times, couples who host an intimate wedding will utilize the same space for both their ceremony and reception. This will save you the effort and cost of a secondary event space, and allow you to make the most of the venue you truly love. Take this into consideration when researching potential venues, as a large enough area can accommodate both the weddings ceremony seating and dinner tables. If everything can be set up from the get-go, there will be less hustle and bustle to rearrange furniture when it comes time to eat.
Splurge on Special Touches
One benefit of opting for a smaller-scale affair is that you will have the budget to splurge on items or elements that you love, like our comfy and downright beautiful Tabby Tufted Grey Linen Loveseat. These special touches can be an item that sparks joy for you or is simply more convenient. Take the opportunity to treat yourself and your loved ones to a special space.

Why should the bride get to have all the fun? Starting out as a well-known Southern staple, the Groom’s cake has evolved into a lifestyle statement for the groom. A tribute to an alma mater, favorite sports team, or favorite hobby, this cake or dessert is a great place to let creativity and personality shine! Whether you chose to share the stage with the regular wedding cake or decide to serve the groom’s cake at the rehearsal dinner, there are many options to choose from. We have a wide variety of dessert displays for rent that are able to serve any of your favorite treats!
Some recent trends include a chocolate decorated cake. Simple and delicious, chocolate gives the option for something darker and more decadent than the traditional white cake. Display your type of cake with one of our small chalk boards to call attention to the unique flavors!
Some grooms prefer to pay homage to a favorite drink or place, as pictured below in a beer bottle cap shaped Groom’s Cake on Style Me Pretty.
Sometimes there isn’t a perfect cake for your groom- so mix it up! We’ve seen many couples choose milk and cookies in lieu of a Groom’s Cake. Honestly, what’s better than cookies and milk as your homemade dessert? Your display options are endless- even shot glasses can be used to serve milk.
Are you more interested in a whimsical and fun dessert display? We had a recent client decide on a Popcorn Bar in lieu of a dessert table. Set at the Nashville Zoo, this dessert idea was created by our friends at Wedding 101 and Camie Occasions. The popcorn was displayed on our Ella Tiered Stand and in our Martini Glasses. To turn this idea into an interactive favor table, goodie bags or Chinese takeout boxes can easily be used for guests to take this treat on the road!
