This past year has forced many of us to change our plans and adapt to COVID-19 restrictions. That, of course, includes couples planning to tie the knot. As a result, intimate weddings are now becoming the most practical and preferred choice for weddings. Being able to share this special day with family and close friends can still be a magical moment for you and your partner, and it has some other perks too! Here are a few of the benefits of a small wedding.
One of the major benefits of a smaller wedding is the cost factor. A smaller guest list is ideal for those who are on a tighter budget. Instead of spreading your budget thin, you can really fine-tune your priorities and decide what to splurge on. This lets you focus on what you really want and care about, like the venue, food and flowers.
It’s Easier to Organize
Smaller weddings are easier to organize. You won’t have to spend so much time figuring out as many details or dealing with any drama or stress. With less to worry about, you have more time to dedicate to things that excite you, like finding your wedding dress.
Lots of Options for Venues
You can choose the perfect wedding venue that will suit your needs and guest list. With fewer people and things to fuss about, you can cherry-pick the one that feels right for you as a couple.
Your wedding is a special, personal day that’s meant to celebrate your love. So having people on your guest list who you don’t really know on a personal level, like old colleagues or distant relatives, can feel a bit weird. By keeping your wedding small and intimate, you get to share your big day surrounded by those who you really want to be there.
Less Pressure and Attention
There are lots of couples who dislike large audiences or being the center of attention. If this sounds like you, then there’s no better time to take advantage of our “new normal” and tailor your wedding as you wish. After all, it is your special day, and it should feel right for you.
