When imagining a wedding, everyone has a unique idea about what their special day will be like. From choosing the theme, the colorful abundance of flowers, to the decadent cake and fabulous gourmet spread, even right down to having monogrammed napkins and wedding souvenirs, every small detail is a relevant part of the occasion. Because a wedding is a significant milestone in a couple’s life, it understandably creates a big impact. And big things usually entail big spending. With all the details that go into planning a wedding, the costs add up quickly and setting a budget can be quite daunting.
You may want to consider having a small, intimate wedding instead of going for a big, extravagant one. Trimming your invite list is a wise move; it’s the first step to having an unforgettable event shared with the people closest to you. Now let’s take a closer look at the benefits you can enjoy with having a small and intimate wedding.
Planning a small wedding allows you to significantly cut back your spending so that you can put your money on important things like a down payment for a new condo, a fancy honeymoon, or a pricey wedding ring with diamonds. The money you save on keeping your guest list small can certainly be recirculated into your wedding budget. You can use the extra cash to enjoy fancier catering, overflowing wine and spirits; splurge on that stunning wedding dress, or hire your first choice band for entertainment. Not to mention, planning a small wedding means having more options for a venue as you won’t need a big space to accommodate a huge number of people.
When you narrow down your wedding invite list, you get to invite only the people who matter to you and with whom you share the closest bonds. When you take the time and consider who you really want to share your special day, you can invite guests who bring a good, positive energy. You get a higher chance of enjoying the company of people who truly care for you and your partner. You can also spend more time with each guest rather than share a few brief words in passing to accommodate everybody. Many brides have expressed that this was a big problem at their wedding, that they wish they could have had more time to stop and talk with everyone. Make sure this doesn’t happen at your wedding — cut down your guest list so you can spend quality time with the people who mean the most to you.
As wonderful and exciting as weddings are, they can also be very overwhelming and a lot to handle. A small guest list means having a more intimate celebration. The day itself can be less chaotic and commotion-filled. Too many guests to entertain can put significant pressure on the bride and groom. With fewer guests, you feel at ease, stay in the moment, and experience less drama. You can also relax at the thought that you not only greeted all your guests, you were able to personally chat with each of them. When planning your wedding, make sure you tick off everything on your checklist without compromising on many things. Having a small wedding can be a very smart idea that helps you save time and money. Then you can focus on planning other aspects in life that are equally important to you and your Only One.
