Should I Have A Big Wedding or a Small Wedding?

Here at Los Willows, we have a wealth of wonderful things ready for your wedding. We’ve perfected the art of painting weddings with beauty, and we owe a large part of that to our luxurious wedding venue.

Los Willows is an excellent wedding venue that can easily make any type of wedding look grand and fabulous, so your only focus should be on deciding what kind of wedding you want. Considering what’s happening to the world right now with COVID-19 still in our midst, you’re probably a bit confused about how to proceed when it comes to the size of your wedding, aren’t you? This post should help out a bit, then.



Big Weddings

Big weddings, depending on where you are from, might mean a guest list of 300 and above. The following are the pros and cons of a big wedding:


  • Pros

You will have no restrictions on your guest list. For your big wedding, you can invite any and everyone.

You will have more fun and you’ll party harder because the more the merrier, right? The larger the number of guests at your wedding, the more fun it will be for you.


  • Cons

You will definitely be breaking the bank for this one. Big weddings mean more cost per head, so be ready for it.

There will be less intimacy too. It is a wedding tradition for the bride and groom to spend some time welcoming each guest but this is impossible to do at a large wedding due to the sheer number of people in attendance.

You will have a harder time planning it. Think of the seating arrangements and social distancing and such. You or your wedding planner will be compelled to invest a lot of time and effort before you can get everything right.


Small Weddings

A wedding is considered small if the guests are less than 120 in number.


  • Pros

Your budget will be sufficient. If your wedding is small, you won’t have to spend anything more than you’re comfortable with and the quality of your occasion will be better because there are fewer people to cater for.

It will be an intimate affair because you’ll only be inviting family and friends-the ones closest to you. You can make time to personally welcome each guest to the ceremony.


  • Cons

Your guest list will be restricted. You won’t be able to invite everyone and there’s sure to be a little friction over who gets to come and who doesn’t.

There will be much less partying, of course. Yes, you’ll have fun, but not as much as if it had been a bigger wedding.

Here at Los Willows, we offer you an event space that can easily accommodate your dream wedding, regardless of whether it is big or small. We’re located at 530 Stewart Canyon Rd, Fallbrook, CA 92028. You can call us at (760) 731-9400) or contact us here or leave us an email at [email protected]

4 Tips on Choosing Your Wedding Style

Gone are the days when wedding designs strictly entailed white tablecloths with pink centerpieces and nothing more. And although most weddings have been put on hold due to this coronavirus pandemic, you can use this period to finetune the details of your wedding. Use it to decide on the style or theme you want, who you want to invite, etc.

This is necessary because life is slowly going back to normal as people adopt the changes they have to make to keep the virus at bay while living their lives. With lots of options available, finding the perfect style for your wedding might seem hard but don’t let it bother you. Los Willows has a few albeit great tips that can make the process easier and more fun!



  • Where to Start

The choice here is entirely up to you. You can choose a set in a film that you like, other weddings, interior design, and even graphic art. Your favorite hotels, restaurants, and retail stores can all be a form of inspiration for your wedding too.


  • Bringing Your Ideas Together

Try linking all your ideas to your venue. Eliminate the ideas that don’t fit the bigger picture of your wedding and save them for other places like your new house or even a future event. Start with your rentals and work up to the other elements that will make up your wedding venue.


  • Avoid Getting Sidetracked

The truth is that you will always find more options that look like they’re better than the one you have chosen. Make your decision and stay satisfied with it. If you try to fit in too many things at once, it’ll be like over-accessorizing an outfit. The end result is never pleasant.


  • How Can You Keep Your Theme Authentic and Accurate?

Conduct a lot of research. Study the theme that you have chosen to use very carefully. It won’t bode well to leave out an important detail that you could have easily added, so make sure you double-check to ascertain if it’s what you want. You should also try to pay attention to the nuances and how everything comes together.

How to Feel Calm and Relaxed on Your Wedding Day

So many couples are anything but calm and relaxed on their wedding day, and we can understand why. Being nervous means these couples often miss out on subtle but crucial moments of their wedding day and barely have any fun. Los Willows don’t want you to go down that same road. We believe that weddings should be fun for the couple and anyone who’s a part of it, so here are 6 tips on achieving a state of calm and being utterly relaxed on your wedding day.



  • Sleep Early the Night Before

Sleeping early the night before your wedding is essential because it’ll give you time to relax and, thus, you’ll be more than ready for the day’s activities when you wake up.


  • Have Some Breakfast

A healthy breakfast is an ideal way to start your wedding day. Avoid food that can make you queasy; go for light but high energy foods. And lavender-infused tea is excellent for keeping you calm and in good spirits too.


  • Use Calming Scents

Consider having your favorite scent as a room diffuser or candle to help you relax while you’re getting ready.


  • Play Music

It’s been proven that music can play a significant role in keeping people relaxed and calm, so take advantage of this. On your wedding morning, play the kind of songs that make you feel positive, excited, and comfortable too.


  • Pamper Yourself

Take a nice and long bath if you’re the kind who likes them. Spoil yourself with a luxurious dressing gown while you get ready for your wedding. Treat yourself like you normally wouldn’t do because the occasion certainly demands it! You’ll come out feeling relaxed, calm, and happy.


  • Have A First Look

A first look session is a great way to rub off any last-minute nerves and also get beautiful pictures. Pictures have a way of drawing our raw emotions in you. Look at the pictures and smile, then take strength from each other because you both know the love between the two of you is pure and true. D this and start your day on the right foot. Best of luck!

3 Differences Between A Rustic and A Classic Wedding

Classic weddings have always been the norm and are still what many couples opt for these days. Think a long white gown, an ancient church, and flower arrangements almost everywhere you look. The rustic wedding is a creation of Gen Y and has also become a popular theme for modern couples. There are many differences and similarities between rustic and classic weddings, and we’ve decided to chronicle a few to help you make the right decision.



  • The Colors

For classic weddings, most couples go for a strong black and white presence in the wedding attire. When it comes to rustic-themed weddings, there is a heavy focus on natural or farm elements; you can embrace everything about the great outdoors. There are usually elements of wood and stone in the décor too.


  • Your Ceremony

Couples tend to have their traditional weddings in a church or some other formal location. The bridal party will include several attendants from bridesmaids and groomsmen to flower girls and page boys. The bride will be given away by her father or another valuable family member.

Rustic-themed weddings are held outside; under a tree or in venues like barns, sheds, and vineyards. The bouquets used are also unstructured and a little more wild-looking than their manicured, classic wedding counterparts. Couples who decide on a rustic-themed wedding may also choose to have a full bridal party afterward.


  • Your Reception

The majority of traditional weddings are formal affairs with a sit-down three-course dinner. Decorations are usually in the form of floral centerpieces and the cake will be of the tiered kind. The reception is generally quite structured, with the couple and wedding party formally introduced, great speeches, the cutting of the wedding cake, and first dance.

Any flowers present at a rustic wedding will most likely be unmanicured. There are similarities with a classic wedding here, though, because rustic receptions also consist of a sit-down dinner. But if the couple prefers a more informal buffet or hors d’oeuvres, that can be arranged too. There may be some formalities at the reception but it is quite laid back and couples have more flexibility in the tone they set for the day.

Whether rustic or classic-themed, you can hold your dream wedding with us at Los Willows. You’ll find us in San Diego and we’ll be more than happy to host you and your guests. We’re located at 530 Stewart Canyon Rd, Fallbrook, CA 92028. You can call us at (760) 731-9400), and leave us an email at [email protected]
