It doesn’t have to be a cheaper wedding
If cost or budget really isn’t a reasoning behind your smaller wedding then that doesn’t mean it’s still not the best option for you; it means you can spend your money on quality rather than quantity. You will have more venue options, you could really treat your guests to a luxurious 3 course meal, or you could get that band for the reception that seemed just that bit out of your price range. You could spend more on a photographer to capture the moments shared by all of your closest family members throughout the whole day. It really does give you that bit of extra financial room to splash some cash on what you really want to spend it on and you know the people you’re spending this money for are those you love, making it a bit easier to hand the money over.
Don’t get us wrong, we completely see the appeal in a big wedding; the build up, the excitement, showing your love off to everyone in both of your worlds… but it isn’t for everyone. Weddings are stressful, no matter what the size, and smaller weddings give the happy couple a little less to worry about and a bit more time and money to themselves.
