Wedding Entertainment Ideas for Small Weddings

So you've chosen to tie the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony, surrounded by just your nearest and dearest and are looking for the perfect wedding entertainment ideas to complement your small, but perfectly formed wedding day?!

Smaller weddings are becoming much more popular and with reasons like these from You and Your Wedding, it's easy to see why. The daunting task of whittling down your guest list, the prospect of having to spend the day making small talk with distant relatives and ex-colleagues, not to mention the expense of having to hire a bigger venue, are all reasons why a lot of couples are following the 'bigger-is-not-necessarily-better' mantra.

So here are 5 brilliant wedding entertainment ideas to top off your intimate affair:
