A lot of people seem to be under the impression that just because you want a small wedding for some reason it can’t be amazing. Let us tell you right now that this is not the case at all.
You can have a small wedding that is absolutely perfect for you, as long as you put a little bit of effort into the planning of the whole thing. It’s just going to be a case of determining your priorities and ensuring that you get what you want out of the day. What do we think that you should think about? Let’s look.
The first thing that we’re going to recommend you consider is the people. If you want a small wedding then you’re not going to want to have loads of people there, as that’s the whole point, right? So you’ve got to be selective with the guest list!
Invite the people that you know for sure you want there, and nobody else. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel as though you have to invite certain people because it’s traditional to do so, because you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.
The people that you think will make a positive addition to the day are the only ones that need to be invited.
You do not need to get married in a church if you do not want to. There are other options such as in a registry office which is actually very common, or you can get married outdoors, or at another venue that caters for weddings.
Think carefully about where you want your wedding to take place because you only get to do it once. Remember that if you are hiring a venue or going to the registry office then there is going to be a maximum number of people that you can invite. As such, you just need to check what this is to be on the safe side.
Finally, you do not have to compromise on the dress just because you don’t want a big wedding. You should still be able to get the dress of your dreams, the dress that makes you feel like a princess, and the dress that you will love for the rest of your life right alongside your partner.
Your wedding should be special to you and perfect for you, so if that means that you want the fancy dress, even if it’s just you and your partner attending, it’s worth it.
Hopefully, you have found this article helpful, and now see that even though you’ve decided to have a small wedding, it’s still going to be amazing.
A small wedding does not mean a boring wedding, so any thoughts like this need to be washed out of your mind ASAP. As you can see, it just takes a little bit of planning! We hope that you have an amazing wedding day, and enjoy the rest of your life with the love of your life.
