Why are More Couples Going for an Intimate Wedding?

When it comes to planning a wedding, the first question is usually not who, what, where, or when. It’s “how many?” And while one is not greater than the other, weighing the pros and cons of a grand celebration and an intimate gathering early on in your planning will get you on the right track. The trick is to know what you envision, and determine what kind of celebration suits you best!

Today, we’re listing down four advantages of throwing an intimate celebration. Is this type of wedding for you?

Intimate weddings: What's in it for me?

It minimizes your budget

Deciding to have a small, intimate celebration can do great wonders to your wedding fund! Another perk is getting to add unique and personal touches to make it a more meaningful experience for your guests, like in this backyard wedding! Now won’t that be just so special?

You get to spend quality time with your guests

More than being social events, weddings are first and foremost about loved ones celebrating a couple’s marital union. If you have an intimate wedding, you get to spend a lot more time with all your guests and really get to talk to all of them. So remember, you don’t need to invite all your Facebook friends! Just look at this fun Kate Spade themed wedding!

You skip the stress

Having only a handful of people, you can now set your mind on doing things you really like minus the stress! The ceremony will be just as amazing and the reception more laid back. So like this happy couple who hired minimal suppliers and had no entourage to worry about, be prepared to share some amazing laughter, take gorgeous photos, and dance the night away! Remember that your wedding day marks your first day of making memories as man and wife, so why not start with some pretty great ones?
