The Benefits of Planning a Smaller Wedding

Let’s talk about smaller weddings.

Often, it’s assumed that bigger is better, even when it comes to weddings. However, that is not always the case. There can be something very sweet and beautiful about having a smaller wedding. When planning your wedding, here are some benefits of a smaller wedding.

Greater Interaction with Guests

Having fewer guests’ means that you have the ability, if you choose to do it, to spend more time with each guest. Rather than trying to buzz through a room filled to the brim, imagine leisurely visiting with each guest, getting to have a conversation and thank them. And a bonus of having enough time to actually eat dinner and get down on the dance floor. The experience can be totally different for the bridal couple and the guests.

Venue Flexibility

A smaller wedding, with fewer guests, may allow for some creative venue options. If you love a certain house or property that isn’t generally used for weddings or has a smaller capacity, the venue could now be an option!


The budget can be one of the biggest wedding planning stressors and price per guest is the quickest way your budget can get out of of hand. It’s simple math: the fewer people you have, the more flexible you can be with your budget. You can spend more in areas like wedding photography, wedding videography, decorations (uplighting, flowers, etc.), a wedding DJ and whatever else you want.

Ability for More Thoughtful Details and Personal Touches

Since you will have fewer tables and a smaller area to decorate, you can get really creative with your wedding planning. You can spend a little more time (or money) on each table, if you want. It might be tough for you to fully decorate 25 tables with huge floral arrangements, but you may be able to afford having 10 and getting exactly what you want, and then some.

Logistics and Drama

Again, its simple math – the fewer people involved, hopefully fewer logistics and less guest drama. If you are looking for a hassle-less wedding, it would be wise invite fewer people.

These are a few of the benefits of having a smaller wedding. Ultimately, of course, the choice is yours. But just because you choose to make your guest list a little smaller, the magic of your wedding will not be lost. It may actually grow with creative touches and ideas with your wedding planning.
