Planning A Wedding For 50 Guests

Planning A Wedding For 50 Guests: Intimate Weddings and Micro Weddings are trending right now. Whether it is to save money with regards to your wedding budget or if it’s related to state restrictions and travel bans, small weddings are in and will probably be in for the next year or so. What is your reason for having a smaller wedding? Maybe the thought of being in front of 150 guests scares the crap out of you or your just wanted to do a smaller destination wedding in The Berkshires? Whatever your reason, we are here to help.

Your choice in wedding venue needs to make sense for your intimate wedding. It just looks awkward if you have 50 people in a large ballroom. Find a venue or wedding site that fits the scale of your wedding. There are many unique venues out there (for example Brewery Weddings or Vineyard Weddings) that might better fit your needs than the traditional hotel. There are many Boutique Hotel Wedding Venues that also might be a great alternative to the typical wedding venue.

Think out of the box – with 50 guests or less, you can really be unique and find a wedding venue that fits your style. Websites like Mayflower Venues might be a great place to start looking for venues.

Intimate Wedding Lighting and Decor Ideas

Your micro wedding or intimate backyard wedding doesn’t have to be boring. Having fewer guests might mean you have more of your wedding budget to dedicate to décor items and lighting. Lighting is probably one of the best ways to differentiate your wedding – and there are many options to choose from. Maybe you want to have us install a few crystal chandeliers or some string lights or add color to your wedding tent? This is what lighting can to really upgrade your wedding experience.


Your Wedding Day Soundtrack

The great thing about intimate weddings with less than 50 guests, is that music is even more important. Maybe you don’t need to worry about playing so many older tunes for your older guests (because there are less of them) or you don’t have to worry about boring your teenage cousins (because they are not invited). Either way, you have a bit more leeway in choosing the music you want (and do not want) to hear at your wedding. That’s great! What feel do you want for your cocktail hour or dinner music? What are some of those college favorite songs that you really want to incorporate? Have you been dreaming about playing Fall Out Boy at your wedding? Well, it’s your day – make that Spotify list and share it with your wedding DJ and set the perfect tone for your wedding day.

Inspirational Images For Your 50 Person Wedding

Meet Allison & Nick
Stonover Farms – Lenox, MA


I’d like for you to meet Allison and Nick. When you walk into Stonover Farms – it is an empty barn. Allison and Nick had a vision for their wedding. They wanted to completely transform the space with lights hung throughout. We walked the space with them, brought in a few light fixtures, and created a design to meet their vision.

We brought in amber uplighting to warm up the wood tones around the perimeter. We hung about 600′ of black strand bistro lights throughout the space. Then, we brought in 2 custom recycled wood chandeliers. One was an 8′ long plank chandelier with glass and hanging Edison bulbs hung over the wood bar. The second was a 6′ x 6′ square recycled wood chandelier with 16 Edison bulb hanging strands placed over the dance floor.

When they came in for their first look on their wedding day – they just lit up. It was more than they ever expected. Even, Stonover Farm’s owner, Tom pulled me aside the day after their wedding to say that he’s never seen the barn lit up – it was just amazing.

“Rob was very professional. He met with us several times and suggested ideas that we wouldn’t have thought of. On our wedding day he told us he had just bought a photo booth and wanted to try it out which he let us use free of charge. As a surprise he mailed us a thumb drive with the audio from our ceremony, the prayer from my wife’s grandfather and the speeches of the best man/Maid of Honor. He kept the night rolling and everyone on the dance floor. I would highly recommend him for any future events.”

“Rob Alberti kept us grooving all night!
We knew we had picked the best DJ when we had our first phone call with Rob Alberti. He was professional, warm, and laid back, setting us both at ease. He really has an encyclopedic knowledge of music, and he was willing to work with our many song requests. We appreciated his guidance and natural ability to read the crowd and drop the perfect song! You can tell he loves music and his work because he kept the groove going all night and everyone loved it!!”
