Intimate weddings may be the norm, but it doesn’t mean you have to forego grand ideas and ditch your inspiration boards. You can still have the big day you have always imagined, albeit with a smaller audience.
For Pinterest brides, whether you’re unearthing pins from years back or just starting a mood board, seeing so many options can be exciting as it is intimidating. While the possibilities may be endless, don’t let the choices overwhelm you. Begin by booking a venue you absolutely fancy so you have a solid foundation to ground your concept on. From there, bringing your IG-worthy nuptials to life will be much easier, even if there are travel restrictions.
Remember though, you need not go far to find the right location. All you need is vision, creativity, and a driveable venue near you like, say, in Quezon City, to make your once-in-a-lifetime celebration extra special.
