A wedding is a beautiful and special event. A unique, pivotal moment in the life of the couple and the lives of their families. In these times of a global pandemic and with the need for social distancing, life as we know it is changing. That’s why we’re seeing a lot more couples opting for small weddings.
Although they’ve been around for a while, we have a feeling that small weddings will be especially crucial in the coming days. So, what’s a small wedding? We’re glad you asked! A small wedding is a wedding that features the elements of a traditional wedding ceremony but on a smaller scale. If you’re thinking about having one but can’t quite make up your mind, here are the benefits of a small wedding.
- Intimacy and Romance
With big weddings, couples are often hardly able to spend quality time with all their guests. Small weddings, on the other hand, make it possible to chat, laugh, and connect. They offer an opportunity to enjoy greater intimacy and have your guests walk away feeling valued and appreciated. That’s because you’ll have a smaller number of guests to deal with.
- Fewer Bills
One of the most significant burdens when it comes to planning a wedding is money. Almost every aspect of your wedding will require some expense. One thing about weddings is that per head costs drive up the spending. The more the guests, the more money you’d spend. Small weddings offer an opportunity to spend less money but still enjoy a fantastic wedding. You could even choose to spend more and give your guests a wedding of higher quality.
With 50 people or less, it is possible to be flexible with so many aspects of your event. A weekend event in an exquisite hotel surrounded by just a few family and friends, or an exclusive quaint venue sounds excellent for a change. You would not be able to do the same easily with a big crowd.
- Room for Creativity
Small weddings create an avenue for great creativity; the sky is the limit. Unique wedding favors such as the Custom Mirror Hearts or the Vintage beer opener key chain with tag card would serve as memorable keepsakes. They would remain with the guests long after the special day. You could also get and use our Cool Wedding Photobooth. Ultimately, your imagination is your limit when it comes to small weddings. How fun is that?
- Less Stress
With a small wedding, you can avoid many bustles, relax and enjoy your special day as it should be. Your wedding planning will also be more manageable. It’s simpler to plan for 20 people than it is to do the same for 200+ people. You’ll also have more time to relax with your partner and build your relationship.
COVID-19 has created a new normal all around the world. While many will these days avoid attending an event with several people, small weddings make it possible to observe social distancing. It’s a great way to exercise caution while celebrating with the newly-weds. You’ll rest easy knowing you did not compromise the health of your loved ones.
