Intimate weddings are the perfect way to have a more personal wedding experience! It’s also the best idea for couples who have a smaller budget, or just want to spend more quality time with their guests. A small wedding gives you the opportunity to really get creative, and spend your money where it counts the most. So choosing the perfect wedding venue for a modest wedding is imperative. Depending on your guest count, narrowing down the perfect location can be challenging. That’s why we’re sharing our favorite Philadelphia venues that cater to small events (for your BIG occasion)!
