Intimate weddings are here to stay! While the world was reeling under a pandemic, the weddings took a sharp turn too. From the big fat Indian weddings with a crazy gathering and unlimited dishes to gorge on, it was now about intimate gatherings and at-home functions.

With the scaling down of weddings came the downsizing of wedding menus too! From lavish spreads and countless dishes, it became an affair of limited menu but dishes that were loved. And with that came the tradition of sit-down dinners. Or we should say, came "back". In earlier times, Indian wedding feasts were always sit-down setups and not really buffets. Now, we are going back to it, with a few modern touches.

With intimate weddings, sit-down setups are the perfect way to celebrate with your closest friends and family after you're done with the nuptials. So, we curated some amazing inspiration for the same. Start pinning!
This Gorgeously Pink Setup

Make it pink and match it with your outfits! Pink is such a pretty bridal shade and looks equally wonderful in decor. Use different shades of it and make sure your sit-down setup looks dreamy but warm.
Using Natural Landscape

When you've got trees and a garden, use them to your advantage. Set up the sit-down dinner around the natural landscape. You can drape it in contrasting colours and it will look absolutely beautiful in pictures.
Keep It Classic
A plain white setup with a pop of gold makes this classic setup a must-save! The yellow roses on the chairs add a floral element that instantly elevates the whole look.
Fancy & Pin-worthy

Just because it is an intimate setting doesn't mean it cannot be right out of your Pinterest wedding mood board. Start with a few green elements, glam it up with gold-tinted cutlery and add a tinge of Indianess with kaleeras or bangles as part of the decor!
