You’ve cut down your guest list and scrapped your plans for a grand reception. That doesn’t mean a more intimate setting should be any less thought of. A small wedding with your closest loved ones doesn’t mean you have to forego all creativity; in fact, it’s a wonderful opportunity to really let your personal tastes shine by making heartfelt decisions as a couple.

Here’s a chic aesthetic that is completely on trend! Featuring abstract shapes, muted pastels and choice plants like anthuriums and stalks, this theme doesn’t require excess to make a statement. An Instagram-worthy panel in your theme’s palette should do the trick, as well as blooms and stems in vases as table centerpieces.

A theme that will never go out of style, there is just something so elegant about a romantic, garden-themed wedding. A more polished take on rustic themes, this concept is versatile and can be scaled to a grand affair or an intimate setting. What we love about this theme is its effortlessness—there isn’t much to add when you’re surrounded by nature. All you need here is a beautiful outdoor venue and cooperative weather. So, if your yard or garden is spacious enough to accommodate a handful of guests, this works!

To style your table, include elements that are already present in your surroundings for a sense of cohesion—like hand-picked flowers and foliage. Or, you can choose to skip the flowers entirely and dress the table with fresh fruit and produce for an organic, harvest time vibe!

There has been a surge of local in the past few years, so it’s no surprise that some of the most stylish weddings lately have been Filipino themed! Support local by introducing native elements and other local features—materials such as buri, rattan, bamboo and abaca add a warm and natural vibe to the setting.

When it comes to effectively creating a local vibe, it’s all in the details. Think of incorporating local elements in your food and drinks, the program, as well as the giveaways. Wear a Filipiniana-inspired dress and have your groom wear a barong Tagalog!

Adorn the table and add pops of color to the place by decorating with a mix of local foliage and produce. Then, offset these elements by introducing some modern touches—light signages, graphic prints and streamlined silhouettes will add a contemporary vibe.

For a sophisticated vibe, you can never go wrong with a classic black-and-white theme. Black adds the right amount of drama with a timeless flair, without being too bold. Clean and romantic, this theme sets the tone for versatility and sophistication.

Achieve this look with a mix of classic elements and modern touches. Since black is already a strong color, limit it to certain pieces as focal points. Black candle holders will nicely contrast white napkins and menus, while green foliage adds a nice and subtle contrast.

Bohemian

There is something so effortlessly stylish and laid back about a bohemian wedding, which beautifully translates to intimate settings. Wild flowers and leaves, raw finishes, and muted colors make this theme easily achievable, whether indoors or outdoors.
