Benefits Of A Small Wedding
Many couples with plans of getting married in the next few months now feel they are faced with postponing their weddings. However, this isn’t the only option. Why not take this opportunity to have a smaller wedding. Previously people had everyone they had ever met at their wedding. But, in recent years there has been a real shift to a smaller and more intimate wedding.
In this blog post we would like to look at the benefits of a small wedding. If you’re finding the planning of wedding stressful or don’t want to postpone dur to coronavirus, then this is a must-read blog post for you.
A Bigger Budget
When you’re planning a wedding you will quickly see that most of your budget goes on food. On average you could be looking at around £80 per guest for food. Halve the amount of guests at your wedding and you have much more of your budget available. This means you can have all those little extras you loved the idea of. This could be the higher quality invites, the nice favours or even a flower wall or starlight backdrop you didn’t think you had the budget for previously.
Some people avoid writing their own vows because they don’t want to read them in front of all their guests. However, with a smaller wedding all the guests will be close friends and family. You can create a smaller and more intimate wedding where you are proud to talk about the love you have for your partner.
Perhaps you loved the idea of a doughnut wall, a sweet cart or a cupcake stand but couldn’t see how it could work for 150 guests. Yet now you have a much smaller number of guests you can have all these little treats. You could also purchase little gift bags to allow guests to take treats home with them. This will ensure no food is wasted and every last treat will be thoroughly enjoyed.
As you have less guests at the wedding, the photos can be done quicker too. It also means that more photos of each guest can be taken. If you have a wedding arch for example, then you can have group photos there, but you can also have these group photo next to the LOVE letters on the dancefloor. Fewer guests actually offer you more photo opportunities than when you have more guests and there is always the worry that the photographer will miss a photo of a certain guest.
The planning of a smaller wedding is so much easier than a big wedding. We can help you find all the best wedding suppliers that will ensure that planning your big day is as stress free as possible. However, it is often the guests that cause the most stress and worry in the run up to your wedding. The less guests you have, the less stress there will be.
