Soo what is an intimate wedding you may be wondering? An intimate wedding is your normal wedding just on a smaller scale. Instead of having say 100 wedding guests you will have 50. You’ve probably heard the term micro wedding being tossed around a lot recently too. A micro wedding is on an even smaller scale, with round 15-30 wedding guests (ideal for the current limits on weddings due to COVID).
