3 Reasons to Have a Small, Intimate Wedding

What are your biggest priorities for your wedding day? While many brides dream of a big venue with a lot of guests, there are many benefits to planning a small, intimate wedding. As you start the planning process, consider things like your guest list, your budget, and venues in your area. There are a lot of big decisions ahead, and it’s important to choose the path that best suits you, your fiance, and your future lives together. If you are considering a small wedding, take a look at a few of the benefits below!


It Creates a More Relaxing Atmosphere

Every bride wants her wedding day to go smoothly, right? Even so, it’s hard not to stress about all of the little details. After all, you put months of planning into this special moment! Some brides feel that a small wedding is the best way for them to fully enjoy the day. What are the benefits? You’ll have more venue options in the planning process, a smaller guest list, and a stronger budget.  It also makes the transition from ceremony to reception more seamless with fewer people. An intimate wedding can create a more laid-back environment for brides so that they can be more present on their big day.

You Can Spend More Time With Guests

It’s not always easy to keep the guest list small, but this decision comes with a lot of benefits. In the hustle and bustle of the day, you will have more time to spend with your guests (especially if you have a lot of family and friends coming from out of town). You can spend time chatting with friends during cocktail hour and visit each table without feeling like you have to rush to the next one. This can also give your guests a special experience as they get to be part of the tight-knit group surrounding you with love on your big day.

There’s More Freedom With Your Budget

If your guest list is small, you might have more flexibility with your budget. If you have a limited guest list, you can spend a little more on catering, hire your dream photographer, or add those extra details that would be more expensive with a larger wedding. This way, you can pick where you want to splurge and where you want to save.  If you want to keep things simple, you can also use that extra money for expenses later in married life. At the end of the day, it’s important to know that a small, intimate wedding does offer options so that you can make the most of your big day.
