It’s not always the size that matters….
Planning and organising any type of celebratory or fun get together involves a lot of hard work. There’s always so much to think about and challenges to overcome – the guest list and size of your party being a major one.
On the one hand, holding a large, rather extravagant celebration does mean that you won’t need to worry quite so much about forgetting to invite somebody or having to make awkward decisions on numbers, but a smaller and more intimate gathering does have a special vibe. It’s personal, it allows you to spend more time with your guests and results in a far more meaningful experience.
So, whether you’re planning a wedding reception, birthday, anniversary, bar or bat mitzvah celebration or even a small intimate cocktail party, let’s take a look at some of the advantages of holding a smaller, more intimate event and how Events by Knight can help plan, create and stage it for you.
Getting more for your money
The first major advantage of holding a smaller party is that you’ll be able to spread costs further. Cutting back on guest numbers or using a smaller venue than you may have originally considered leaves extra money for the things that matter – giving your guests a good time and creating happy memories.
Think about those extra finishing touches which make a real difference – colour schemes and décor, floristry, lighting, seating layouts, and of course ensuring that your food and drink menus offer variety, dietary / vegetarian options and will appeal to all.
A better use of time
Having fewer guests means you’ll be able to dedicate more time to creating a more welcoming and homely feel. They’ll feel more relaxed too, having a greater opportunity to mingle, socalise and make new friends. You’ll be able to spend more time with each person, which we think makes for an enjoyable and special day.
Flexibility with venue
The venue for your party is important. It’s probably been the first thing you’ve considered since deciding to hold your event. We know how the ideal venue sets the scene and atmosphere for the entire day, but with a smaller and more intimate guest list, you’ll have far more choice. Many venues have a variety of rooms to cater for the size of your event, and even with outdoor spaces there’s plenty of scope for making a party your own.
Focus on entertainment
Choosing entertainment which appeals to everyone can also be quite a daunting prospect. Having a smaller guest list means you may understand preferences a little better and you can then focus on finding entertainment they’ll love. You may even be able to choose more age related entertainment options instead of having to provide a mainstream selection. With your extra budget, why not opt for a variety of entertainment options – classical musicians, a jazz band, solo singers, a live DJ and disco, the possibilities are endless.
