When thinking about having a wedding, most people tend to look at it from the grand side of it. This is all good but should not be the only option. A small wedding can be equally as fun and fulfilling for you and your guests. Many couples we have spoken to in the past lauded the intrigues of a small wedding and attributed it to the following reasons;
Celebrate with close friends and family
Small weddings are perfect weddings for family oriented individuals. They present the perfect opportunity to share your special moments with the people who are closest to you, with the added benefit of unparalleled privacy.
Organized sitting arrangements
Most large weddings tend to have disorganized and chaotic seating arrangements. This is very true if you decide to invite your people from different parts of your life- family, workmates, friends, church mates and so on. Having a small wedding may help avoid this drama as almost everyone will get the best table, sitting among people they know so they can enjoy themselves fully.
A relaxed wedding day
Having a small wedding means that you will have more time to relax and enjoy your special day. The setup takes away much of the hullabaloo associated with weddings as it is. Having few people in attendance means that you get to spend more time with your close friends and family members.
Easy to plan
Planning a wedding is very hectic and planning a big wedding is even more stressful. If you do not have much time on your hands you might consider going for a small wedding. This gives you a better grip on the whole process and an easy time in as far as execution is concerned.
A chance to splurge
Unless you have a big wedding budget, you will be limited as to how much money you spend during your special day. The best way to handle this is to have a small wedding as you will have more money to spend on the things you like.
Venues are easy to find
Finding a wedding venue for a few guests is easier than finding one when you have 300 guests or more. Finding a good venue for fewer guests is even easier on short notice, you will most likely find one that you like in case you need it immediately.
Save some money
It goes without saying that the smaller the wedding the easier it will be to control budgetary allocations. You will be surprised at how little you can spend when a small wedding is well planned.
