A comprehensive guide about small and intimate weddings
Lately, small intimate weddings have become quite common. Perhaps it’s because they give couples room for more personalization and require less spending and planning thus decreasing wedding stress. If you and your future spouse are interested in having a small wedding, read on to learn more.
What is considered a small wedding?
according to data, the average wedding guest size in the US was 117, which is considered a big wedding. Therefore, a small wedding consists of 50 people or less. Typically a more intimate affair can host between 10-40 guests, no more than 50. Small weddings generally will include components of a larger wedding on a smaller scale, with a more relaxed, chill vibe. As you can imagine, the fewer people you invite, the more intimate the event can be.
Whom should you invite to an intimate wedding?
For a small wedding to be small, the guest list should be limited to immediate family members (like parents, siblings, and grandparents), close friends, and basically anyone you can’t imagine not being at your wedding. The first step is to make a short guest list, that way you’ll be able to intimately celebrate with your nearest and dearest loved ones.
Where to have a small wedding?
With a narrowed guest list, your wedding venue options open up. Depending on your choice of wedding theme, a small wedding allows you to have a reception almost everywhere. Often times, venues have smaller spaces geared towards more intimate weddings, and they may come with lower price tags too. Make sure to visit the venues before choosing one.
